DENVER—Sage Hospitality, along with its partners in Denver’s Union Station, announced that the 112-room hotel within the historic building will be named The Crawford Hotel. Named after urban preservationist and Union Station partner Dana Crawford, the hotel will fill the upper floors of the north and south wings of the station when the building opens Summer 2014. Local Denver companies redeveloping the building with Sage include Larimer Associates, McWhinney, REGen, and Urban Neighborhoods.
“Dana Crawford deserves this honor. She started historic redevelopment before it was popular, she’s had her hand in so many great Denver restorations, including Larimer Square, The Oxford Hotel, and now Union Station,” said Walter Isenberg, CEO and president of Sage Hospitality. “The design of The Crawford Hotel honors the great history of the train station, while providing a modern luxury that is new and exciting. It’s an amazing combination, reflective of the work Dana’s done for our city.”
The Crawford Hotel’s 112 uniquely decorated guestrooms will reflect the different eras of the building’s history. The overall hotel design was created by JG Johnson Architects and Tryba Architects. The property will feature art specifically curated from local Colorado artists by Denver company NINE dot ARTS as part of the project’s local art program.
Union Station’s Great Hall will serve as the hotel’s main entrance and lobby. Guests can check in via their mobile phones in advance, before stepping off the Light Rail and Amtrak train, and access the hotel’s concierge.
As part of the partnership between The Crawford Hotel and The Oxford Hotel, located one block from Union Station, amenities at The Oxford Club, Spa, and Salon will be available to all guests. The station will also offer a fitness center and 3,000 square feet of downtown meeting space.
