Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center opens

Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center officially opened its doors as the largest combined resort and convention center in Colorado on December 18.

Just 10 minutes from Denver International Airport, the resort is the fifth Gaylord Hotels property and one of the largest resorts in the world to debut under the Marriott International brand this year. The Denver area has seen unprecedented growth in the past decade, but Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center is the definition of a game changer for the region, delivering 1,501 rooms, 485,000 square feet of convention center space and an extensive indoor/outdoor water park on a sprawling 85-acre site.

“Adding a western group destination of this magnitude to Marriott Internationals portfolio allows our organization to leverage existing large conference business demand into the property. This spectacular new-build will also create new demand in the market with meetings customers who have never considered Colorado for their events,” said Mike Stengel, Senior Vice President of Gaylord Hotels at Marriott International.
