Things are Booming in LoDo, Cherry Creek and Aurora
The remodel that began in fall 2016 has been completed at the Courtyard by Marriott Denver Downtown. In celebration of the renovation, the hotel and Wynkoop Brewing Co. have partnered to offer guests exclusive access to the historic LoDo brewery.
The package includes accommodations in a downtown guest room, a 32-ounce growler filled with a craft beer of your choice and a $40 credit toward valet parking.
Colorado is known as a state that stays in motion, not only in health and fitness but also for the meetings and events industry. After 12 years as editor, of Colorado Meetings + Events, I am no longer surprised at the state’s ingenuity but the amount of new venues, restaurants and hotels launching in the Denver metro area now and in the future has definitely caught my attention. Here are just a few highlights, and watch our Spring 2017 issue and website for more!
What happens when a company outgrows its trendy downtown office space in LoDo on Blake Street and faces a booming Denver real estate market? Unbridled Solutions LLC, an event management, production and creative agency headquartered in Denver and with offices in Boston, San Diego and Grand Rapids, bought the 16,000-squarefoot Grant Street Mansion in 2014 and relocated its growing family of businesses to the historic landmark in May 2016. The property has 36 rooms and 14 fireplaces and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.
