Denver Marriott City Center Unveils Total Transformation

DENVER, CO. September 5, 2017 - Change is good, and for the Denver Marriott City Center that means the unveiling of their years-long multi-million-dollar renovation which sees the hotel take on a completely new look, feel and style from top to bottom.

The downtown Denver hotel recently put the finishing touches on renovations to their lobby, additional meeting space, ballroom, breakout rooms and all guest rooms. The brand new, sleek design of the hotel evokes the feel of a high-end residential apartment building, with views of Denver and the Rocky Mountains, coupled with an amazing downtown location.

“We’re excited to introduce guests to a new experience in the heart of downtown,” said the General Manager. “Our new room concept is modern mountain chic and combines everything that inspires us about the city with the natural beauty that surrounds the property.”

The redesigned rooms capture the vibe of Denver and merge it with the character of the mountains. Utilizing wood grain and stone elements, the renovated rooms are warm and inviting and include 32 Executive Kings and 12 Junior Suites. All double/double guest rooms have been changed to queen/queen rooms and modern lighting and décor complement rustic elements like barn door bathrooms.

This thoughtfully crafted and contemporary mountain aesthetic extends throughout the newly transformed Denver hotel, with over 30,000 square feet of renovated function space, including 30 renovated meeting rooms, a beautiful renovated lobby, restaurant, Starbucks and UPS Store.

Featuring impressive views of the Rocky Mountains, dining with fresh ingredients at Prospect’s Urban Kitchen & Bar, a fitness center and pool, the hotel is a modern haven in the center of Denver. Its downtown location puts it close to sights like Coors Field, the Colorado Convention Center, 16th Street Mall and the Pepsi Center.

Hotel Law: Issues & Events
There is not a single area of a hotel’s operation that isn’t touched by some aspect of the law. Hotels and management companies employ an army of lawyers to advise and, if necessary, litigate issues which arise in the course of conducting their business. These lawyers typically specialize in specific areas of the law – real estate, construction, development, leasing, liability, franchising, food & beverage, human resources, environmental, insurance, taxes and more. In addition, issues and events can occur within the industry that have a major impact on the whole, and can spur further legal activity. One event which is certain to cause repercussions is Marriott International’s acquisition of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide. This newly combined company is now the largest hotel company in the world, encompassing 30 hotel brands, 5,500 hotels under management, and 1.1 million hotel rooms worldwide. In the hospitality industry, scale is particularly important – the most profitable companies are those with the most rooms in the most locations. As a result, this mega- transaction is likely to provoke an increase in Mergers & Acquisitions industry-wide. Many experts believe other larger hotel companies will now join forces with smaller operators to avoid being outpaced in the market. Companies that had not previously considered consolidation are now more likely to do so. Another legal issue facing the industry is the regulation of alternative lodging companies such as Airbnb and other firms that offer private, short-term rentals. Cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles and Santa Monica are at the forefront of efforts to legalize and control short-term rentals. However, those cities are finding it’s much easier to adopt regulations on short-term rentals than it is to actually enforce them. The December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine these and other critical issues pertaining to hotel law and how some companies are adapting to them.
