Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Downtown Convention Center Completes Major Renovation

Hotel upgrades its 403 guest rooms, 27,000 square feet of meeting space & lobby to elevate its approachable, Colorado experience

DENVER, CO. May 8, 2017 - The Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Downtown - Convention Center is pleased to announce that it has recently completed a major property renovation.

Upgrades to the full-service hotel included new modern furniture, lighting, carpet and soft goods in tones of blue-gray and camel in each of the 403 spacious guest suites. Additionally, a commissioned two-story art and water feature welcomes guests to the soaring lobby, which features a 14- story sky curtain that provides an abundance of natural light. The hotel’s 27,000 square feet of meeting space – which can host up to 650 people - now features fresh carpet and design, along with three new Executive Board Rooms.

“With the Denver hotel market booming, this remodel definitely helps to position us as a more upscale downtown hotel with an urban, boutique vibe. The mountains and terrain that surround Denver are the basis of the design inspiration; the carpets and colorways are reflective of overhead views of the area.” said General Manager Ed Blair. “True to our Colorado design inspiration, our staff is happy to recommend their favorite local hiking trail, 14’er or mountain getaway. We also proudly pour a variety of Colorado craft beers at our nightly manager’s reception.”

Located in the heart of downtown Denver, across the street from the Colorado Convention Center, the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Downtown Convention Center hotel is walking distance to popular locations such as the Denver Center for Performing Arts, Coors Field, Denver Union Station, the Pepsi Center, and much more. The location provides easy access to Denver’s extensive Light Rail System as well.

Guests can enjoy complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast daily and an Evening Reception with snacks, wine & beer. Elements Restaurant & Bar, which serves classic American fare in a comfortable, modern setting, is open daily.

Managed by Denver’s Sage Hospitality, the Silver LEED Certified Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Downtown Convention Center is owned by Carey Watermark Investors 2 (CWI 2), a non-traded REIT focused on investing in lodging and lodging-related properties.

Food & Beverage: Multiplicity and Diversity are Key
The challenge for hotel food and beverage operations is to serve the personal tastes and needs of an increasingly diverse population and, at the same time, to keep up with ever-evolving industry trends. In order to accomplish this, restaurateurs and hoteliers have to flex their creative muscles and pull out all the stops to satisfy their various audiences. One way to achieve this is to utilize existing food spaces in multiple ways at different times of the day. Lunch can be casual and fast, while dinnertime can be more formal and slower paced. The same restaurant can offer counter service by day but provide table service by night, with a completely different menu and atmosphere. Changes in music, lighting, uniforms and tabletop design contribute to its transformation. This multi- purpose approach seeks to meet the dining needs of guests as they change throughout the day. Today’s restaurants also have to go to great lengths to fulfill all the diverse dietary preferences of their guests. The popularity of plant-based, paleo, vegan, and gluten and allergen-free diets means that traditional menus must evolve from protein-heavy, carb-loaded offerings to those featuring more vegetables and legumes. Chefs are doing creative things with vegetables, such as experimenting with global cuisines or incorporating new vegetable hybrids into their dishes. Another trend is an emphasis on bold and creative flavors. From chili oil to sriracha to spicy maple syrup, entrees, desserts and beverages are all being enhanced with spice and heat. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
