Best hotels in Stamford

Stamford Introduction

Stamford's got one leg on the salt-washed shorelines of Connecticut and another in the bustling metro sprawl of buzzing New York City. The result is a town that bobs with sailboats and hops to a business beat, both at the same time. There's a hubbub of Fortune 500 companies and countless direct commuter trains straight to Grand Central in the morning, not to mention Stamford hotels with conferencing centers and business facilities, all mixed in with rocky beaches and leafy parks.

Hotels in Stamford

There's not a shortage of luxury hotels in Stamford. The town is peppered with 4-star stays that have their eyes on the town's constant supply of business travelers and well-to-do New England vacationers. They are residences and condominium blocks, laden with chic flat rentals and serviced apartments with gyms, swimming pools, and even communal billiard rooms. Those on a tighter budget might prefer the 2- and 3-star hotels in Stamford. They don't have to be basic – there's even some with spa facilities, an indoor pool, and in-built meeting spaces.

Where to stay

Broad Street is one of the main arteries of Downtown Stamford. It's not only got some of the city's classiest hotels, but also chain coffee shops, shopping malls, and loads of different restaurants right on the doorstep. Business travelers tend to like the spa hotels and suites that dot the roads between that and Stamford Station – it's just a short walk from those to the platforms of the Metro-North Railroad and the commuter trains whizzing straight to Grand Central. Then there are the travel inns on the north end of Summer Street, surrounded by retail precincts and the green parks on the Rippowam River.

Things to see

There's plenty to see on those days off from the Fortune 500 in Stamford. If you don't have to catch a meeting in the Big Apple, you could catch some bracing sea breezes on the edge of Shippan Point, instead. It's a rocky headland of well-to-do homes and stone-spotted beaches that pokes out of the bottom of the town – a great place to stroll. The little ones are bound to love encounters with critters – cows, sheep, otters – at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. It's a loveable attraction that also brims with culture, on account of its art collection – a collection that includes Native American totem poles next to surrealist European print works. Meanwhile, the views of the Long Island Sound are excellent at the leafy Cummings Park. In winter, it's laden with sledges. In summer, it's alive with picnickers and beach goers.

How to get to Stamford

Stamford hotels, like Stamford itself, are uber-well connected to the Big Apple. On the commuter belt of New York City, they benefit from regular direct trains on the Metro-North Railroad line – the full trip takes around 1 hour each way but does offer convenient links to the NY Subway and the huge airports of JFK and LaGuardia beyond. The nearest local airport in Connecticut is the Westchester County Airport, which has flights to Atlanta and Detroit. Driving means using I-95 to cruise up or down the New England coast straight to Stamford.
