Business – Located 8 miles from Denver International Airport, the 10th busiest airport in the world, and 15 miles to Downtown Denver, the Denver Connection site is a prime location for hotels to attract business travelers. The location is also convenient to Buckley Air Force Base, Anschutz Medical Campus, and the corporate headquarters for businesses such as ProLogis Headquarters, Boeing and Serta.
Current Hotel Market – The Airport/East sub-market currently has around 11,000 rooms representing about 30% of the metro area lodging market with a large portion of those hotels serving the lower-priced market. Market studies reveal that there is room for additional upper-priced rooms with substantial meeting space in well located locations.

Hotel sites are located all within the premium City of Denver address. Just 3,000 feet to the 40th Avenue Commuter Rail Transit Station which connects to downtown Denver and DIA. 100,000 cars per day drive by the site.
Meeting Space – There is opportunity for new conference hotel investment in the region. With 29,000 square feet of meeting facilities, the new DIA Westin hotel, slated to open in mid-2015, will have some of the largest new meeting space in the trade area.
