In early 2017, the Courtyard by Marriott Denver Downtown will begin remodeling; it is expected to finish in early April. The multimillion-dollar revamp will include updates to the lobby and meeting spaces. The design will have a modern vintage feel while staying true to the rich history of the building, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Denver’s Design Force Corporation will be responsible for the design, with help from Denver art consultants NINE dot ARTS assisting on the art selection. The spaces will feature dark wood beams with blue, turquoise and yellow color accents.

“Our hotel has been offering guests a superior downtown lodging experience for nearly 20 years,” says Jason Mueller, general manager. “This remodel embraces our past while helping us remain relevant to today’s traveler.”

The 177-room hotel, managed by Sage Hospitality, offers 3,200 square feet of meeting space, with seven venues that can hold up to 250 guests. Other amenities include free Wi-Fi, a business center, valet parking and a fitness center.

The Broadmoor is expanding its meetings and events capabilities with its new exhibition hall and Mountain Clubhouse spaces. The property is expanding to better accommodate trade shows and other larger meetings and events, which will be best suited in the new exhibition hall. The Mountain Clubhouse is meant to offer a Colorado-inspired event space for small to medium groups.

 

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.
