    POSTED February 19, 2018

The Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Stapleton in Denver, Colorado, has been awarded the Connie Pride Award of Excellence.

“It is wonderful to see our hotel partners recognized for their hard work and exceptional service,” said Justin Clark, Visit Aurora director of sales and services. “The Connie Pride Award of Excellence is a national recognition that places our properties on the map for meeting planners and visitors to Colorado.”

The Connie Pride Award of Excellence is presented to less than 20 properties nationwide.

“Essentially, the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Stapleton was ranked in the top 15 hotel properties for a combination of quality assurance, overall guest experience, and Hilton Honor Scores,” said Girardin, director of sales and marketing. “Our committed staff strives to create a personalized and unique experience for each and every guest by exceeding expectations. We are proud to be a part of the Aurora community and couldn’t be more thankful for the support of our local partners through the years.”

Origin Red Rocks, a debut property from the Origin Hotel Collection, has opened its doors just 15 miles west of Denver, in Golden, Colorado. The historic gold rush town is known for its outdoor music, red sandstone rocks, outdoor adventure opportunities and its beer (the town brews more beer than any other town in America).


There is not denying that something big has happened with Colorado’s culinary scene over the past decade. Throughout the state, from the Front Range and mountains to the Western Slope, creative chef/owners, research and development chefs for catering companies and resort executive chefs are using loads of local ingredients and shaking up menus and atmospheres in unexpected and delightful ways.
