From the Denver metro to the Rocky Mountains, Colorado is a hub of hotel investments. From new hotel developments to renovations, here’s a sneak peek at what hotels are new and refreshed in the Mile High City and Colorado.
New Hotels & Renovations in Denver
Debuting in May, the Renaissance Denver Downtown City Center is a new build in the historic 1915 Colorado National Bank Building. The 221 room hotel showcases historic elements of the building as well as 16 iconic western murals by Allen Tupper True. Located in the financial district of downtown Denver, the Renaissance Denver is less than a block from the 16th Street pedestrian Mall and 3 blocks from the Colorado Convention Center.
Opening late in 2014, the $50 million, 9-story Art Hotel broke ground in November. The 165-room boutique hotel will be located near the History Colorado Center and Denver Art Museum south of Civic Center in downtown Denver. The first 3 floors of the building will be office space, with the hotel beginning on the 4th floor. Arrival is through a portico entrance and passing through spaces showcasing modern art. The hotel will consist of 5 floors of rooms, all suites, with windows taking advantage of the city and mountain views.
Denver’s Union Station is the hub of urban development including the new Crawford Hotel. Opening mid-July, the 112-room boutique Crawford Hotel will combine historic elements with chic luxury of today. The 2nd level is themed to evoke train travel with the “Pullman” rooms. The “Classic” guestrooms on the 3rd floor are inspired by the Victorian era, while the upper floor reflects contemporary “Loft” rooms inspired by the Lower Downtown neighborhood around Union Station.
Located in the theater district of downtown Denver, the Curtis Hotel recently completed a $5 million renovation project, upgrading its 336 guest rooms and expanding the lobby. The hotel also introduced two new themed one-bedroom suites: the KISS Suite and the Spice Girls Suite.
If you’ve been to Denver International Airport within the last few years, you already know it’s a hub of construction. Scheduled to open in late 2015, the Westin Denver International Airport is part of the DIA South Terminal $544 M redevelopment project, which also includes a new commuter transit center and an 82,000 square foot public plaza. The 14-story, 519-room Westin hotel and conference center will be owned by DIA and operated by Westin.
