4 Reasons Colorado Is Calling You

By Michael J. Solender, November 26, 2018

“We are a particularly attractive option for national groups who rotate between our geographies across the U.S,” says Deanne French, director of marketing. French notes that groups with dispersed populations like the option of switching up regional locales. Gaylord Rockies provides a western mountain option supplementing Gaylord’s Opryland (Nashville, Tennessee), Palms (Kissimmee, Florida), National (National Harbor, Maryland) and the Texan (Grapevine, Texas). Most impressive are the dual 35,000-sq.-ft. ballrooms. These mirror image spaces have not a single column or pillar between them due to special construction and ceiling supports. The resulting open sight-lines allow for unique configurations and easier room navigation.

A full-service spa, salon, fitness center and boutiques are also among the resort’s amenities. With nearby pre- and post-meeting recreational offerings such as Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre, Garden of the Gods, river rafting, mountain biking, skiing, whitewater rafting and more, this Rockies destination is sure to be high on planners’ lists.

Denver Marriott Tech Center

Our goal is for the Denver Marriott Tech Center to be experienced as a destination to come to, not through,” says Scott Boyer, director of sales and marketing. “We’re delivering customized personal experiences for our guests whether it is hiking in the mountains, connecting with our partner Topgolf, or enjoying special amenities that we have here on property such as our Oxygen Bar.”

Denver Tech Center is a hive of activity in the metro-area’s southeast corridor, dotted with startups and corporate tech titans. Boyer notes the Denver Marriott Tech Center, about 30 minutes from both DIA and downtown Denver, just underwent a $65 million renovation with guestrooms, public areas and meeting space all updated. The hotel serves as a corporate property for many of the area’s businesses and offers five extended stay residences.
