Site Visit: The Crawford Hotel

By Hayley Panagakis, January 13, 2015

Groups staying at The Crawford Hotel in Denver can rest their post-con weary heads among Victorian era and Art Deco decor without sacrificing the comfort of modern-day amenities. The recently renovated boutique hotel is tucked inside the historic, 120-year-old train depot Denver Union Station in the heart of the city’s Lower Downtown district—one mile from the 584,000-sq.-ft. Colorado Convention Center.

The hotel’s 112 guest rooms have everything from luxurious rain showers to classic claw-foot bathtubs, and services to meet the needs of the modern traveler, with free Wi-Fi, in-room iPad minis and valet parking. Between meetings, attendees can break off to network at one of the many restaurants and bars at Union Station including: Milkbox Ice Creamery, located in a former barbershop and serving 16 different flavors of ice cream; Pigtrain Coffee, with pastries and locally roasted beans; and The Cooper Lounge, a high-end, Hollywood-themed bar with an extensive list of cocktails, spirits and wines. More than 600 pieces of eclectic Western art are displayed throughout the building, including vintage family photos, 1940s celebrity trading cards and antique travel postcards. Attendees are a short drive from some of Denver’s major attractions such as art and science museums, amusement parks, zoos, aquariums and gardens.

The Crawford Hotel has more than 3,000 square feet of on-site meeting space, as well as a 12,000-sq.-ft. meeting hall and 40,000-sq.-ft. outdoor plaza. Denver Union Station is recognized by the National Register of Historic Places and expects to achieve LEED certification soon. Direct light rail access to and from Denver International Airport is expected to be completed by early 2016.
