The Inverness Hotel and Conference Center in Englewood has announced that it will become part of the Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand by March 2017. This conversion will not affect guest reservations, though the property is set to undergo a multimillion dollar improvement plan.

“The conversion of The Inverness Hotel & Conference Center to a Hilton Hotels & Resorts property will bring a newly designed hotel to the Denver area,” says Susan Bachman, senior director, northwest development, Hilton. “While also offering all the benefits and high-quality service expected from a Hilton hotel.”

Silverwest Hotels has been managing the hotel since November 2015 and recently embarked on a large room renovation project; the renovations began in November 2016. The new rooms will offer outlets and USB ports on the base of lamps, walk-in showers and modern fixtures. After the conversion, Two Roads Hospitality will continue to retain the on-site event planners.

“We're very excited to announce the conversion of The Inverness Hotel and Conference Center into a Hilton Hotels & Resorts hotel,” says Charles Peck, CEO, Silverwest Hotels. “We’re looking forward to sharing the beautiful room renovations and upgrades and all of the wonderful amenities of the Hilton brand with our guests.”

Triple Creek Ranch in Darby, Montana, has named Molly Smith and Kristen Snavely co-general managers of the all-inclusive luxury property situated in the Bitterroot Valley. Smith is returning to Triple Creek Ranch after a brief hiatus. Previously serving as GM for four years after working her way up from pastry chef, she has since perfected her skills at The Inn at Hastings Park in Massachusetts, another Relais & Châteaux property. 

 

With meetings returning to normal as the COVID-19 pandemic levels out, outdoor mountain pursuits are finding more time on meeting agendas. Taking events outdoors not only boosts attendees’ comfort level as they ease back into in-person meetings, time spent in nature is proven to improve brain health and stimulate creative thinking as well.

We’ll be looking at this topic in-depth in the Spring/Summer 2022 issue of Mountain Meetings. Consider this as an introduction to some of the possibilities.  

 

So far, webcams and Zoom meetings have been an essential part of 2020. While digital options are functional placeholders for meetings, chatting with a coworker over Skype doesn’t always set up a team for success. Human connection is vital to team building, and hosting safe, small meetings is a great way to revitalize teams after months of working from home.
