Hilton Hotels & Resorts has taken over the Inverness Hotel and Conference Center
, a longtime member of the International Association of Conference Centers. The 302-room property, now called the Hilton Denver Inverness, is in Englewood, Colo., just south of the bigger city.
"This opening in Denver is a prime example of Hilton's continued efforts to grow our portfolio within the world's most desired locations," said Shawn McAteer, vice president of global brand management for Hilton. "Situated at the foot of the Rockies and surrounded by lush golfing greens, guests will find top-notch service, amenities and restaurants that set the standard when it comes to hospitality."
More than 62,000 square feet of high-tech meeting space, comprised of 43 flexible meeting spaces, make up the conference facilities at the property, which includes a 5,400-square-foot ballroom.
Among on-site eateries are the Garden Terrace, known for its award-winning Champagne Sunday Brunch; the Fireside Bar & Grill, which focuses on on locally sourced ingredients and local wine, spirits and beer; the Spotted Dog pub, with shuffleboard, darts, billiards and more; the Golf Grille's sandwiches and finger foods. The Elevate coffee bar rounds out the offerings.
For exercise and relaxation, guests can check into the 24-hour fitness center, three tennis courts, sauna rooms, two pools and a hot tub. The full-service spa has seven treatment rooms, steam rooms, a relaxation suite and a private patio. The property also has a championship 18-hole golf course.
"We are pleased to be working with Hilton to redefine hospitality and service in and around Denver through the conversion of the Inverness to its flagship brand," said Charles Peck, COO of owner Silverwest Hotels.
