Westin Hotels and Resorts, part of the Starwood group, has announced that its new hotel at Denver International Airport in Colorado, USA, will officially open to guests at 3:00pm on November 19, 2015.
The 433,000ft², 14-story hotel, will have 519 guest rooms and a large glass façade overlooking the Rocky Mountains and the airport’s flight path. Its design is intended to resemble a bird hovering above the public plaza, framing the tents of the Jeppesen Terminal.
Denver mayor Michael B Hancock, said, “Adding a state-of-the-art hotel and conference center to our international airport places our region front and center as a leader in travel, transportation and tourism. We now look to the completed vision of a commuter rail that will soon connect the airport to downtown Denver, creating additional economic opportunities along the Peña Boulevard corridor stretching to our city core.”
Tom Curley, general manager of The Westin Denver International Airport, said, “We are thrilled to be delivering our brand promise For A Better You to Denver International Airport before the busy holiday travel season begins.
“As one of the fastest growing cities in the country, Denver is primed to soon have a hotel with refreshing ambience that allows the traveler to feel well while on the road, as well as a conference and transit center that will connect more people with everything the Rocky Mountains have to offer.”
The hotel’s 37,000ft² conference center will feature a grand ballroom, junior ballroom, and 15 additional meeting rooms. The space also boasts a 10,000ft² pre-function area that showcases a panoramic three-story high glass wall. Guests can also make use of a top-story swimming pool and fitness studio.
Kim Day, CEO for Denver Airport, said, “Denver International Airport’s new Westin hotel, transit center, commuter rail connection and open air plaza will bring new amenities to our passengers that will enhance their experience and help us remain competitive. We look forward to November when we can share this new experience with passengers.”
