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.

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.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.
