The Crawford Hotel, a property by Sage Hospitality, has announced its opening inside the landmark Denver Union Station of Denver’s Lower Downtown neighborhood.

"The revitalization of Denver Union Station has been a labor of love for so many people," said Walter Isenberg, CEO and president of Sage Hospitality. "This is a modern lodging experience unlike anything else in the United States- and it’s an opportunity to experience the new heart of downtown Denver."

The 121-room, dog-friendly hotel, was named for Denver urban preservationist and Union Station partner Dana Crawford. Named to the National Register of Historic Places, Denver Union Station expects to achieve LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council and the 100+ year history is reflected in The Crawford Hotel's decor. 

The new property features free WiFi and high-speed Internet service, a 24-hour fitness center, bicycles available for rent, valet parking, concierge service, complimentary access to The Oxford Club, Spa and Salon, and multiple dining options. The 120-year-old train station will serve as The Crawford’s lobby, boasting 65-foot ceilings and a variety of Colorado restaurants and retailers. Inside, the hotel offers more than 3,000 square feet of meeting space, including six private event spaces and a 40,000-square-foot outdoor plaza.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
