Marriott to Open Dual-Branded AC, Le Meridien Hotel by Colorado Convention Center




ac denver downtown

Marriott International has announced the opening of a dual-branded hotel development in downtown Denver, bringing two European-inspired brands to the city: Le Méridien and AC Hotels by Marriott. The 20-story development has a 272-room Le Méridien Hotel and a 223-room AC Hotel by Marriott, owned and managed by White Lodging Services Corporation.

The AC Hotel by Marriott Denver Downtown is the lifestyle brand’s first property to open in Denver. Introduced to the U.S. in 2014, the AC Hotel by Marriott brand originated in Europe in 2011 as a joint venture with Spanish hotelier, Antonio Catalan, and now offers a portfolio of over 100 hotels in countries across Europe, Latin America and North America. Inspired by classic European design, the brand is aimed at the modern business traveler, with simple, clean and crisp lines that aim to create a feeling of harmony and inspire creativity.

Based around the concept of the “Urban Pioneer”, the Denver AC hotel is designed to feel like a modern ski lodge, with peaked roofs, strong lines, geometric language, bold interior gestures. The materials for the public spaces are indigenous to Denver and inspired by the surrounding nature to include warm woods, honed and chiseled stone, textural wall finishes and unique millwork details.

Also led by the Simeone Deary Design Group, Le Méridien Denver Downtown takes shape with the clean lines of mid-century modern design. The interiors have a cool and refreshing color palette complementing unique millwork concepts, reminiscent of the intricate craftsmanship of snowboards and skis. The hotel also has artwork installations, constructed with vintage pieces reassembled into contemporary sculptural art – reimagining the intricate and rhythmic nature of a snowflake. The brand’s signature Le Méridien Hub re-interprets the traditional lobby as a social gathering place that brings coffee culture to life during the day and sparkling cocktails during the evening. Each of the 272 guestrooms and suites are designed with a cool grey color palette with striking and surprising accent color combinations reminiscent of blue skies, green aspens, sunset orange and crimson.

Le Méridien will offer more than 12,000 square feet of event space, including a 5,700-square-foot ballroom, as well as meeting rooms brightened through floor-to-ceiling windows. The properties have more than 30 pieces of artwork curated by Denver-based firm, NINE dot ARTS, and created by local artists inspired by the property’s European influence and the Rocky Mountains.

Opening in tandem with the hotels are new drinking and dining venues. 54thirty, the city’s highest open-air, seasonal rooftop bar, offers views of the city and the Rocky Mountains. Corinne, a dining and cocktail spot serving classic, simple American comfort food with an emphasis on locally-sourced ingredients will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner service. The Lobbyist, Le Méridien’s cocktail lounge, opens in the hotel’s mid-century modern-designed social space.

The hotel has tapped local partners for guest experiences and special packages, including Clyfford Still Museum, the Real Dill, Bee Squared Apeiaries, Renegade Brewery, Colorado Cider Company, Laws Whiskey House, and The Infinite Monkey Theorem Urban Winery

Le Méridien Denver Downtown and AC Hotel by Marriott Denver Downtown is located at the center of the city’s business district at 15th and California, one block from the Colorado Convention Center. The hotels are steps away from Denver’s 16th Street entertainment promenade, and five blocks from the Colorado State Capital building and the city’s arts and culture district.  Also nearby are leading attractions including the LoDo Historic District, the Denver Performing Arts Complex, and sports venues such as Pepsi Center, Coors Field and Sports Authority Field at Mile High – home of the NFL’s Denver Broncos.
