In early 2018, the Jacquard, part of the Autograph Collection will open with Jason Dorfman as its general manager in Denver. In the Cherry Creek North neighborhood, the hotel will be owned and operated by Stonebridge Companies, which is also based in Denver.

Dorfman earned a B.S. in Business Administration from The Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management at the University of Denver, before the start of his career at other hotels in Colorado. Dorfman has worked with Stonebridge Companies previously, with his first position with Stonebridge Companies as a revenue manager in 2006. His position as revenue manager won him the title Revenue Manager of the Year by Marriott International. However, his most recent position was as general manager of the DoubleTree by Hilton San Francisco Airport North. During which he won The President’s Award for General Year of the Year awarded by Stonebridge Companies. Throughout his entire career, he has been credited with increasing property success, market share growth, and guest satisfaction scores as well.

“I am thrilled to come home to Denver as the opening general manager of The Jacquard,” said Dorfman. “It has been such a pleasure to be part of the Stonebridge Companies family over the years, and I look forward to providing our valued guests with a luxurious and bespoke experience when The Jacquard officially opens doors.”

When the Jacquard opens in early 2018, the staff promises to operate under the brand promise of Haute Happiness, which satisfies guests with custom-fit, elegant experiences.

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 

 

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.
