Fresh off a $200,000 lighting upgrade, Sheraton Stamford Hotel in Stamford, Connecticut, is doing its part to help Starwood reach its company-wide goal of achieving a 30 percent reduction in energy consumption by the year 2020. Completed in October, the project upgraded lighting to LED throughout the hotel, which will save the equivalent of 882 homes’ worth of electricity in one year, according to a study from the Connecticut Energy Efficient Fund.
Accessible from three airports—Westchester County is 20 miles away, LaGuardia is 35 miles and JFK is 45 miles—the convenience of the Sheraton is complemented by its proximity to downtown Stamford attractions. The Stamford Center for the Arts comprises the restored historic Palace Theatre, which has performances from groups like Manheim Steamroller, and the Rich Forum, which includes a 750-seat theater. Both have space for off-site events. Also nearby is Stamford Town Center, which houses more than 130 retailers and restaurants. Nearly a dozen churches are within a few miles, including St. John’s Episcopal, Zion Lutheran and Unitarian Universalist.
For single-day meetings, Sheraton Stamford’s Meetings in a Moment package includes a meeting room, Wi-Fi for all guests, food service, technology services and other options. Various meeting spaces are available for up to 300 attendees. The single-day Women’s Empowerment Summit on Diversity and Inclusion in the 21st Century Workplace was held at the Sheraton in November.
