Magnolia Hotel Denver Embarks on Multi-Million Renovation
Property Plans Major Enhancements in Midst of Hot Hotel Market
DENVER – 2015 – Jim Finnegan, regional manager for Magnolia Hotel Denver, announced the property started a multi-million renovation designed to meet the needs of today's business and leisure traveler. More standard sized guest rooms will be added to the property along with a dedicated Presidential Suite as well as a refreshed look and feel to the guest room design and décor. Additional back-of-the-house enhancements also will be made to better accommodate guests' food and beverage needs.
"The Denver hotel market continues to get more and more competitive each year and we wanted to make the enhancements our guests and the marketplace require," said Finnegan. "Magnolia Hotel Denver has always been a favorite among business travelers during the week and leisure guests on the weekends. We are excited about this renovation because we believe it's going to position the property more as a four-diamond hotel which will compete directly with the new hotels that have recently opened in downtown Denver."
The hotel is adding 51 standard guest rooms by splitting some of the existing suites. The hotel was originally designed as an extended stay hotel so there are numerous large suites with full kitchens and living rooms. The downtown Denver market has shifted from extended stay so the property is modifying its room categories and design to reflect this change.
In addition, one large, master Presidential Suite will be created on the 12th floor. The two-bedroom suite will be the largest on property with its own distinctive design. The suite will feature a beautiful, hand-crafted wood floor with custom wool rugs, a solid oak dining table that seats 12 with white leather chairs, a fireplace, two full bathrooms, a marble kitchen and expansive views of the surrounding area. When the renovation is completed, Magnolia Hotel Denver will offer 297 rooms – three new boardroom suites, a Presidential Suite, 196 king guestrooms, 44 rooms with two queen beds and 53 suites, 24 of which have fireplaces.
Finnegan also noted that the hotel remains open during the renovation and the construction schedule has been designed to ensure the restoration does not impact the guest experience. "We are taking rooms out of the reservations system floor by floor, three floors at a time to make sure the renovation has little to no impact on guests staying at the hotel between now and September," said Finnegan. The renovation is slated for completion September 2015.
Jim Staicoff of Portland-based Staicoff Design Company oversaw the new interiors of the property.
Magnolia Hotel Denver is located in what was formerly the American National Bank Building. The property was originally restored to reflect its original appearance with terra cotta details and a replicated corner clock adorns this 13-story landmark edifice built in 1910. The hotel, which opened in 1995, is located in the heart of downtown Denver with easy access to the Colorado Convention Center, Pepsi Center, Coors Field, shopping and entertainment along the 16th Street Mall, as well as many other local attractions and businesses.
Magnolia Hotel Denver is managed by Stout Street Hospitality, a privately held hotel management and development company, which operates upscale boutique hotels catering to the sophisticated traveler. The Denver-based company focuses on development, management, acquisition, re-branding, new construction, and conversion of existing independent hotel properties. The core product line consists of award-winning, independent boutique hotels under the Magnolia brand that offer a style unlike that of trendy or branded hotels.
