Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury, Conn., begins construction

Jonathan Nehmer + Associates (JN+A) and HVS Design are designing the new Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury, Conn. The hotel began construction last week and is expected to open by the end of the year.

The third in the Hotel Zero Degrees collection is owned by RMS Companies. The Danbury, Conn., location will have 111 guestrooms, a 100-seat restaurant and gathering space. The design was conceived as a modern lodge, and plays off of contrasts between rugged architecture and contemporary furnishings and finishes.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

Throughout the public spaces, the theme of bringing the outdoors inside is incorporated through the use of large open windows where views of the outdoors are created from multiple seating areas. The open floorplan with its flexible seating groupings offers options for gathering and connecting. The guestrooms each have a minimal palette of warm grays, green and pops of black for a graphic touch.
