Designed to host year‐round tournaments for hockey, lacrosse, swimming, squash, gymnastics, tennis, basketball and volleyball, CPCT will be a hub of activity for traveling sports teams and leagues. Conveniently located near downtown Stamford, the hotel will provide visiting teams with comfortable accommodations and outstanding customer service. Teams will be made to feel welcome not only at CPCT, but also to the city of Stamford.
