Dual-branded Le Meridien and AC Hotels By Marriott debuts in Denver

The hotel houses the highest open-air rooftop bar in the city

Marriott International announced the opening of the dual-branded hotel development in downtown Denver, bringing Le Méridien and AC Hotels by Marriott to the city. 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.

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.

Le Meridien and the AC Hotel, both were led by the Simeone Deary Design Group.

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 with floor-to-ceiling windows. The properties feature more than 30 pieces of artwork curated by Denver-based firm, NINE dot ARTS, and created by local artists inspired by the property’s European influence and the Rocky Mountains.

The hotel will house 54thirty, the city’s highest open-air, seasonal rooftop bar; and Corinne, a dining and cocktail spot serving American comfort food with an emphasis on locally-sourced ingredients. The Lobbyist, Le Méridien’s cocktail lounge, opens in the hotel’s social space.

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 Apiaries, 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.
