The Westin Westminster recently completed an $8.5 million renovation of its 370-guest modern rooms and 60,000 square feet of flexible event space. 

Designed by Atlanta’s Black Dog Studios, The Westin Westminster’s new décor is a “mountain modern” theme and the design highlights tones of umber, russet, amber, blue gray and teal.  Colors and patterns were inspired by Colorado’s prairie grasses and the surrounding mountainous landscape. 

Guests can bask in the hotel’s expansive lobby with a contemporary, yet relaxed vibe centered around the fireplace, which was updated with a sleek concrete finish and hand-hewn rustic mantle.  

The Westin Westminster’s 370 guest rooms all feature wall-to-wall windows, new carpet, drapery, wall coverings, paint and Colorado-inspired art. Each guest room features a Westin Heavenly Bed and the king rooms were updated with a spa-inspired Heavenly Shower offering new tile showers with glass doors. 

The Westin Westminster also revamped its more than 60,000 square feet of unique event space with fresh furniture, carpet, wall coverings and art work. The hotel features 26 flexible indoor spaces along with six stunning outdoor venues, including the Waterfall Gardens, an ideal setting for receptions and wedding ceremonies. 

Kachina Southwestern Grill at The Westin Westminster was also updated. Serving a flavorful Southwestern-inspired cuisine in a casual setting, the rustic restaurant space now features new tile, art, furniture and dining room finishes, along with updated outdoor patio space with fire pits. 

Ideally situated halfway between Denver and Boulder, the AAA Four Diamond Westin Westminster showcases Westin’s premier amenities - including the Westin Heavenly Bed and Westin Heavenly Bath. Amenities include an indoor heated lap pool, Westin Workout with Saunas, a Business Center and a fully equipped fitness center. 

There is no denying the stunning daytime scenery of Colorado, but the state’s amazing celestial landscape after normal meeting hours provides all sorts of great options for groups, from stargazing on moonlit dinners and train rides to nighttime zip lining and rafting.

The 36-room Atticus Hotel in McMinnville, Oregon, opened for business this past spring. The hotel features an on-site restaurant and bar, private dining in the Atticus Hotel Drawing Room, a boardroom for meetings of up to 16 people, a business center and a fitness room. Additional amenities include Dutch-style bicycles, electric-car charging stations, rooms with fireplaces and original artwork from local artists.  

 

There is a lot of new happening around the state of Colorado. The number of recently introduced or upcoming venues for groups has definitely caught my attention. Here are just a few to consider.
