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.

Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa, a Noble House resort located in the heart of the American West, has created a new all-inclusive group retreat program allowing attendees to experience an action-packed, motivational, and customized four-day trip in western Colorado.

 

Two years ago, the Colorado Meetings + Events Best of 2017 readers’ choice awards was held at The Hangar at Stanley, a brand new venue in Stanley Marketplace, a cool new market hall that brought life back to the former Stanley Aviation factory after it sat empty for many years. It was a signal that things big things were happening in Aurora to host a broader and larger range of meetings and events and to up the ante for leisure guests as well.

 

There is a flurry of new and upcoming venues that have been announced in the Denver metropolitan area, Longmont and Fort Collins that are worthy of mention because they are distinct. There isn’t a cookie-cutter, you’ll-find-it-elsewhere space in the bunch!
