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. Amenities include a saline-based indoor swimming pool, 24-hour fitness facility and 24-hour BusinessLink™ Business Center.

Guests can enjoy complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast daily and an Evening Reception with snacks, wine & beer. Elements Restaurant & Bar, which serves classic American fare in a comfortable, modern setting, is open daily.

Managed by Denver’s Sage Hospitality, the Silver LEED Certified Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Downtown Convention Center is owned by Carey Watermark Investors 2 (CWI 2), a non-traded REIT focused on investing in lodging and lodging-related properties.

Social Media: Engagement is Key

There are currently 2.3 billion active users of social media networks and savvy hotel operators have incorporated social media into their marketing mix. There are a few Goliath channels on which one must have a presence (Facebook & Twitter) but there are also several newer upstart channels (Instagram, Snapchat &WeChat, for example) that merit consideration. With its 1.86 billion users, Facebook is a dominant platform where operators can drive brand awareness, facilitate bookings, offer incentives and collect sought-after reviews. Twitter's 284 million users generate 500 million tweets per day, and operators can use its platform for lead generation, building loyalty, and guest interaction. Instagram was originally a small photo-sharing site but it has blown up into a massive photo and video channel. The site can be used to post photos of the hotel property, as well as creating Instagram Stories - personal videos that disappear from the channel after 24 hours. In this regard, Instagram and Snapchat are now in direct competition. WeChat is a Chinese company whose aim is to be the App for Everything - instant messaging, social media, shopping and payment services - all in a single platform. In addition to these channels, blogging continues to be a popular method to establish leadership, enhance reputations, and engage with customers in a direct and personal way. The key to effective use of all social media is to find out where your customers are and then, to the fullest extent possible, engage with them on a personal level. This engagement is what creates a personal connection and sustains brand loyalty. The February Hotel Business Review will explore these issues and examine how some hotels are successfully integrating social media into their operations.
