164 Room Hotel Proposed for LoHi
Hello Riverfront neighbors, there’s something exciting coming to our neighborhood.
Just across the pedestrian bridges, at the base of LoHi, we may be getting a new 164 room “upper upscale” hotel neighbor. You know the location well and probably walk by it several times a week on the way to get Little Man Ice Cream or enjoy a nice dinner at Linger, Lola or any of the many Lower Highlands eateries.
Projected to open in May of 2018, this new boutique hotel is being designed as a 5 story building rich with amenities such as a pool and outdoor deck with views of Denver’s downtown and some sort of food component. We think this means a new hot restaurant or bistro in an area already rich with foodie offerings, but no news yet on if our guess is correct.
Here’s the first question you are going to ask… WHERE?
The proposed “upper upscale” hotel is going to be located at 2525 16th Street. You can see the spot on Google Maps below.
This could be a great new addition to an already diverse neighborhood. A new upscale hotel (hopefully with a restaurant) creates one more destination for us to visit and a great place for our visitors to rest their sleepy heads. That’s right everyone, your in laws don’t have to crash with you… they can be just a couple blocks away. Isn’t that a great reason to celebrate.
We have to imagine the hotel’s prime location will be a draw for tourism as well, including the benefit of a direct light rail path out to DIA going active later this spring. The energy and life in our Downtown Denver neighborhood can help solidify the continued growth and prosperity of our local restaurants and amenities. And we thought most of the exciting news this year would be happening in Union Station. It looks like great things are happening everywhere around us.
The hotel, which would be developed by St. Charles Town Co., would be a member of Starwood’s Tribute Portfolio, which features hotel and resort properties around the world.
We think this is pretty cool.
