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.

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.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.
