There’s a new player in the hospitality game: The Lloyd hotel opened its doors Aug. 5 on the site of the former Hotel Zero Degrees Stamford at 909 Washington Blvd. in downtown Stamford. The new 94-room luxury boutique hotel was developed and is operated by RMS Companies, known for pioneering boutique properties.
In The Lloyd’s design, intimacy meets modernism. The newly created lobby lounge serves a curated breakfast and locally roasted coffee by day and seasonal wines and craft cocktails by night. The first floor also includes a large 24-hour fitness center, featuring an abundance of natural light, core and cardio equipment, a Peloton bike and The Mirror for on-demand yoga and fitness training. Indeed, each step of the guests’ journey has been mindfully fashioned from the arrival experience to the artwork, state-of-the-art wellness offerings and modern West Elm guest room furniture. Luxurious amenities have been incorporated to address the nuances of the corporate and savvy leisure traveler, including large flatscreen TVs, and healthy food and beverage offerings. Among the other amenities are complimentary high-speed WiFi, a 24-hour marketplace, luxurious Malin & Goetz toiletries, spa robes, walk-in showers with frameless glass doors, valet parking, accommodations for canine travelers and Hilton Honors rewards.
“Considering this unprecedented time in our country, we are pleased to offer a new product that offers guests a keen attention to detail, service, safety and comfort to address the changing needs and desires in hospitality today,” CEO and developer Randy Salvatore said in a statement. “The Lloyd is the perfect destination for travelers looking for an accessible staycation, a weekend getaway or a business hotel between Washington, D.C. and Boston, and we are confident that our independent boutique property, with all of the Hilton benefits, will be the hotel of choice in the Stamford market.”
