This is the site of White Lodging’s planned dual-brand AC Hotel by Marriott and a Starwood-branded Le Meridien Hotel.  An opening is expected in 2017 for this project. This hotel will rise to 20 floors once complete.

15th and CaliforniaDenver Urban Review (DUR) has contacted White Lodging to see if they would like to issue a statement confirming that construction is officially underway. White Lodging said DUR will be contacted for future announcements on this project. However, they did not comment on the construction of this hotel project.

This project will rise at 15th and California and will consist of 491 rooms between the two hotel brands. With the Colorado Convention center just one block away.

Each brand will have a separate lobby and entrance. Le Meridien will provide more than 8,000 –square-feet of space for meetings and events. The Le Meridien Hotel will offer 272 rooms, a 24 hour fitness center and a full-service restaurant.

White Lodging developed the dual-brand Hyatt House and Hyatt Place hotel on 14th and Glenarm Place which is expected to open this November.

    Awesome! Not a huge fan of the design, but both hotel flags are welcome additions to Denver. It’s pretty amazing that virtually every announced project in the last few years has come to fruition.

    It’s great to see a hotel with 400+ rooms being constructed. Based on what I’ve heard from friends, family and visitors Denver somewhat lacks on available downtown hotel rooms. Especially during one of the many busy weekends we have. Fortunately we have quite a few “small-scale” hotel projects going on and this will only add to it all. Maybe one or two more larger hotel projects like this will develop in the coming years. I would love to see a high-rise hotel project like a JW Marriott come to downtown Denver. It’s been 10 years now since the Hyatt Regency opened up.
