Rockbridge Acquires Halcyon, An Independent Luxury Hotel in Cherry Creek, Colorado
Halcyon is Rockbridge's Most Recent Lifestyle Property
Rockbridge announces the acquisition of Halcyon, located in Cherry Creek, Denver's affluent submarket and high-end shopping district. The 154-room luxury hotel is Rockbridge's most recent lifestyle property. Makeready, who specializes in independent hotels and restaurants, will manage the hotel, restaurants and bars.
Halcyon's independent personality is deeply connected to the local community in Cherry Creek. Prior ownership built a strong brand in Halcyon that appeals to the discerning traveler. Guests agree, consistently rating Halcyon as one of the top hotels in all of Denver. Rockbridge is pleased to acquire the property and will continue to embrace the local community as we make enhancements to the property and hotel operations.
"I've been impressed with Halcyon for some time, and when the opportunity arose to acquire it, we moved quickly," said Jim Merkel, Rockbridge CEO. "We believe in Halcyon, and its strength as an independent brand. We look forward to re-capitalizing and enhancing the property. We are thrilled that a local investor group led by Matt Joblon has retained a minority interest in the hotel - keeping strong ties to the local community."
Rockbridge will capture Halcyon's existing high-quality but approachable luxury when it re-concepts Departure restaurant, the hotel entrance, and lobby experience. The hotel features Quality Italian, a modern take on an Italian-American Steak House; an activated, rooftop pool and lounge; and B&GC, a vintage speakeasy.
Signature, on-site amenities that have become synonymous with Halcyon's hospitality will remain, including the "Gear Garage," offering guests complimentary access to adventure gear such as longboards, cruisers, Piaggio Scooters, and GoPros to capture the action. Guests will continue to be greeted and tended to at the "Kitchen Counter" - a lobby gathering place where the vibe is comfortable and at ease as they enjoy fresh morning pastries, barista-poured beverages, and happy-hour libations - all while checking in or inquiring about the local scene.
"Since opening in 2016, Halcyon has set a new standard for luxury, independent hotels not only in Cherry Creek, but in Denver," said Matt Joblon, CEO of BMC Investments. "We believe Rockbridge and Makeready are the perfect partners to continue bringing the Halcyon vision to its fruition, ensuring the hotel maintains its position as one of the top hotels in Denver, and is a consistently great asset for the Cherry Creek Community."
All 154-rooms feature thoughtful design details that blur the lines between a luxury escape and a gracious home. Guests will enjoy unique amenities to enhance their experience like turntables in each room to play vinyl favorites and Vivreau beverage stations on each floor with chilled, sparkling and instant hot water on tap.
The hotel has expansive art programming, sharing the works of local Colorado artisans throughout its spaces. In addition, the Halcyon offers Cherry Creeks' premier, meeting space destination with 6,500 square feet of versatile, modern meeting and event space. Highlighting the space are floor to ceiling windows in the main ballroom.
The Halcyon is located at 245 Columbine Street, in Cheery Creek (Denver) Colorado. To make reservations, call 844.442.5296 or visit: https://www.halcyonhotelcherrycreek.com.
