The 172-room Maven Hotel at Dairy Block, a Sage Hospitality property, has opened in Denver's Lower Downtown (LoDo) neighborhood. The hotel is part of the city's new Dairy Block mixed-use development.
 
"We carefully designed this hotel to showcase Sage's dedication to creating one-of-a-kind hotel experiences that are embraced by both visitors and locals alike," said Walter Isenberg, president and CEO of Sage. "We expect The Maven to be a successful concept that can be adapted and expanded to other urban markets nationwide."

The Maven's guest rooms feature a loft-style décor with high ceilings and large windows. Other room types include bunk rooms, with a twin bunk bed perpendicularly set over a king bed, as well as 11 suites.
 
The property, one block from Coors Field, is now the official hotel partner of the Colorado Rockies, and offers a special baseball-themed Diamond Suite.
 
For dining, the hotel features the second outpost of the Kachina Southwestern Grill, created by Sage Restaurant Group co-founder Peter Karpinski. Still coming is the Poka Lola Social Club, whose concept celebrates "the turn-of-the-century American soda-fountain culture." Hotel guests also have access to the Dairy Block's 4,500 square foot fitness center and group fitness classes, as well as the spa and salon services at the Oxford Club, Spa & Salon.
 

The Maven offers the 2,300-square-foot Windsor event space with hardwood floors and a mixture of exposed brick and wood walls. 

 
The Dairy Block development once was home to the Windsor Dairy and will feature The Alley, a  "micro-district" running from 18th and 19th between Blake and Wazee Streets that will open this summer with a mix of Colorado retailers, artisans, chefs and cocktail crafters. The Maven's meeting space and Poka Lola Social Club both will open up onto The Alley.
