BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 19, 2017 -- Marriott International, Inc. today announced the anticipated opening of the dual-branded hotel development in downtown Denver, bringing two lauded European-inspired brands to the city: Le Méridien and AC Hotels by Marriott. The 20-story development features a 272-room Le Méridien Hotel and a 223-room AC Hotel by Marriott, owned and managed by White Lodging Services Corporation.   

"We're really excited to be a part of this dual-branded property opening with Le Méridien, which represents the bringing together of two great European-rooted brands under one roof," said Benoit Racle, Senior Global Brand Director, AC Hotels by Marriott. "The carefully edited, high-style experience that you get at an AC Hotel is perfect for the modern business traveler looking for frictionless, uncomplicated service, and Denver's burgeoning entrepreneurial scene made the city a perfect fit for us."

The AC Hotel by Marriott Denver Downtown is the lifestyle brand's first property to open in Denver. Introduced to the U.S. in 2014, the AC Hotel by Marriott brand originated in Europe in 2011 as a joint venture with Spanish hotelier, Antonio Catalan, and now offers a portfolio of over 100 hotels in countries across Europe, Latin America and North America. Inspired by classic European design, the brand is perfectly suited for the modern business traveler, featuring simple, clean and crisp lines that create a feeling of harmony and inspire creativity.

"We are delighted to expand our partnership with White Lodging to introduce Le Méridien brand to Denver," said Brian Povinelli, SVP and Global Brand Leader, Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts. "We have made significant investments to develop the brand, which connects with guests through the art, culture and cuisine in key cities around the world.  We think these passion points are sure to resonate with Denver visitors and local residents alike."

Le Méridien will offer more than 12,000 square-feet of state-of-the-art event space including a 5,700-square-foot ballroom, as well as meeting rooms brightened through floor-to-ceiling windows. 

Further bringing Denver's dynamic culture to global travelers, the hotel has tapped local partners for guest experiences and special packages, including Clyfford Still Museum, the Real Dill, Bee Squared Apeiaries, Renegade Brewery, Colorado Cider Company, Laws Whiskey House, and The Infinite Monkey Theorem Urban Winery. "We've thoroughly explored the city to find exceptional partnerships which highlight Denver's unique personality," said Paul Eckert, General Manager. "We are excited to truly immerse visitors into the local culture."

Le Méridien Denver Downtown and AC Hotel by Marriott Denver Downtown is located at the center of the city's business district at 15th and California, one block from the Colorado Convention Center. The hotels are steps away from Denver's 16th Street entertainment promenade, and five blocks from the Colorado State Capital building and the city's arts and culture district.  Also nearby are leading attractions including the LoDo Historic District, the Denver Performing Arts Complex, and sports venues such as Pepsi Center, Coors Field and Sports Authority Field at Mile High – home of the NFL's Denver Broncos.
