The remodel that began in fall 2016 has been completed at the Courtyard by Marriott Denver Downtown. In celebration of the renovation, the hotel and Wynkoop Brewing Co. have partnered to offer guests exclusive access to the historic LoDo brewery.

The package includes accommodations in a downtown guest room, a 32-ounce growler filled with a craft beer of your choice and a $40 credit toward valet parking.

The remodel updated the hotel's lobby and 3,200 square feet of flexible meeting space. Designed to honor the hotel's historic architecture originally designed by Frank E. Edbrooke in 1887, the modern vintage theme comes through in dark wood beams accented by bright colors in the lobby. The hotel also features the art of emerging Colorado artists curated by Denver art consultants.

“We are so excited to welcome travelers to our stunning new downtown Denver lobby and event space,” says Jason Mueller, general manager for the hotel. “A lot of our guests come to Denver to visit the ‘Napa Valley of Beer,’ which is why we wanted to partner with the iconic Wynkoop Brewing for this special new promotion. We expect it to be very popular this summer.”

Meeting and incentive trip planners: Get ready to be surprised at the diverse range of lodging options available in Colorado from glamping tents, yurts and teepees to overnight accommodations in a jail, train station, castle and replica fort.

The 200-acre, family-owned Arapaho Valley Ranch has cabins, lodge rooms, glamping tents outfitted with southwestern flair, and 20-foot teepees equipped with queensized beds.

 

When planning a gathering, make sure to check a destination’s calendar of events for festivals, concerts and noteworthy exhibitions. Leslie Heins and Lisa Cook, owners and event architects of Denver-based Affair with Flair, demonstrated how this can be done with a social occasion, which easily could have been a corporate event in conjunction with the Denver Art Museum’s recent blockbuster “Dior: From Paris to the World” that wrapped up in March 2019.

 

The commoditization of the live events industry causes concern and prompts discussion.
