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.

Revenue Management: Technology and Big Data
Like most businesses, hotels are relying on technology and data to drive almost every area of their operations, but perhaps this is especially true for hotel Revenue Managers. There has been an explosion of technology tools which generate a mountain of data – all in an effort to generate profitable pricing strategies. It falls to Revenue Managers to determine which tools best support their operations and then to integrate them efficiently into their existing systems. Customer Relationship Management, Enterprise Resource Planning, and Online Reputation Management software are basic tools; others include channel managers, benchmark reports, rate shopping tools and review systems, to name a few. The benefits of technology tools which automate large segments of a Revenue Manager’s business are enormous. Freed from the time-consuming process of manual data entry, and having more accurate data available, allows Revenue Managers to focus on analysis, strategies and longer-term decision-making. Still, for most hotels, the amount of data that these tools generate can be overwhelming and so another challenge is to figure out how to effectively utilize it. Not surprisingly, there are some new tech tools that can help to do exactly that. There are cloud-based analytics tools that provide a comprehensive overview of hotel data on powerful, intuitive dashboards. The goal is to generate a clear picture, at any moment in time, of where your hotel is at in terms of the essentials – from benchmarking to pricing to performance – bringing all the disparate streams of data into one collated dashboard. Another goal is to eliminate any data discrepancies between finance systems, PMS, CRM and forecasting systems. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will address all these important developments and document how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
