Hotel Indigo Denver is set to open in Denver’s Union Station neighborhood in mid-January of 2017. It will be located at 1801 Wewatta Street and will have 180 guest rooms and 1,188 square feet of meeting and event space.

“The hotel will reinvigorate the street through transparency, connectedness and public space development in a responsive and sustainable project for the city of Denver,” says Gordon Beckman, design director. “The hotel was designed with a millennial mindset to appeal to business and leisure travelers of all demographics who seek the charm of a boutique property combined with the branded excellence to be found in all IHG hotels.”

The LEED-Certified building was designed by architectural and engineering firm John Portman & Associates and features a glass floor, floor-to-ceiling glazing and artwork depicting the Colorado gold rush.

Hotel Indigo Denver is a pet-friendly hotel and features treats, canine cocktail hours and dog-walking services. They also offer a complimentary 24-hour fitness studio with televisions, showers and locker rooms.

“The Hotel Indigo Denver is a perfect complement to our growing portfolio of third-party managed hotels in top urban markets with high barriers to new entry,” says Robert S. Cole, founder, president and CEO, HVMG. “We are very familiar with the Indigo brand, having operated the Hotel Indigo Atlanta since its opening in December 2015. Upon opening, we are confident the hotel will ramp up quickly on its way to becoming the market and segment leader.”

The hotel’s meetings space includes three rooms that accommodate up to 200 guests. Including the Hickenlooper Boardroom, the Green Room and the Russell Room, the two can be combined into a larger Green Russell Room. All spaces are equipped with high-speed wireless internet access and projectors.

Hotel Indigo Denver is now accepting reservations for 2017, for more information head to indigodenver.com.

WeVenture, a national tour operating company, has expanded its offerings to include four Seattle tours that immerse visitors in the city’s vibrant cultural scene. The company, which launched nationally earlier this year, has tours in 10 other U.S. cities including New York City, Miami, Denver, New Orleans, and Los Angeles. The Seattle tours can be an easy and fun add-on to any event in the Emerald City.

 

Portland International Airport (PDX) was famously known for its teal, geometrically patterned carpet, which was sadly removed back in 2015. But now, PDX will be known for its recently completed, unique timber ceiling. ZGF Architects worked closely with PDX for 50 years and designed this transformation to last another half century. The Portland airport is becoming one of the first to be seismic-resilient and produce low carbon emissions, thanks to the 9 acres of native Pacific Northwest hardwood used in building the terminal’s ceiling.

 

The average event-goer spends long days sitting in meetings or professional development sessions, followed by an hour or two of standing and sipping cocktails. But holding your next big event at a spa resort opens a realm of possibilities for wellness breaks. Moving the action from the boardroom to the steam room can improve morale by combining business with pleasure—while also boosting attendees’ health.
