• 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/.
 

While many know Colorado as a big craft beer state (fifth place ranking in the United States for number of craft breweries) and the founding place of Coors, its place on the nation’s wine map continues to expand. Just as some people prefer an IPA to a stout, some folks are more sauvignon black than merlot. What’s a meeting and event planner to do?

It’s a magazine editor’s dream to receive an email saying, “I have a great event space I wanted to get on your radar.” Sometimes, the statement leads to a ho-hum, not very interested reaction, but this one has me excited to see the results upon the expected fall opening of Society bordering the River North Art District (RiNo) in Denver. Formerly The Wrangler bar and nightclub, vacant since 2018, the three-story, 15,000-square-foot multipurpose collective at 3090 N. Downing St. will house three concepts: Thrive, Vibe, and Alive.
