• The Crawford Hotel Expands Denver Union Station Program

     
    POSTED August 29, 2016
     

The Crawford Hotel, located in the historical and recently renovated Denver Union Station, has expanded their tour program of the train station. The tour, previously offered biweekly, will now be offered weekly on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 1 p.m. The tour will feature Denver’s transportation, artwork, shops and restaurants located in the station, along with some of the unique rooms in the hotel.
 
Not only is this tour packed with rich history, but it also supports a great cause. A portion of each ticket, priced at $20 per person, will be donated toward Sage Hospitality’s Dollars for Dreams program—a giving program that’s raised more than $3 million for charities such as UNICEF, Make-a-Wish, National Children’s Cancer Society and more.
 
With 112 rooms, The Crawford Hotel—named after urban preservationist Dana Crawford—puts a modern twist on the building’s unique history. Since the reopening of Denver Union Station in July 2014, after a $54 million renovation, it has become acity hotspot. To book a on- hour tour, visit thecrawfordhotel.com/locations/tours/.
 

It was a treat to experience the new Meow Wolf Denver during a media preview event without all the crowds and to meet various artists and staff who made this third permanent exhibition from the U.S.-based arts and entertainment company a reality. Convergence Station opened to the public for quantum travel on Sept. 17, 2021 and held its first concert the following day.  

 

The fanfare surrounding completion of the Sheraton Denver Downtown’s $80 million, full-scale renovation may have been delayed due to COVID-19, but the VIP/media ribbon cutting and community unveiling event on Sept. 16 was done in true style. The porte-cochere and lobby were taken over for the event that featured live music, a sampling of local food and drink, and the chance to savor a cocktail in Bezel Denver, a swank new bar that hasn’t opened to the public quite yet.
