Denver's Inverness Hotel to convert to a Hilton brand

The Inverness Hotel and Conference Center, a luxury hotel and resort located in the southern Denver suburb of Englewood, is becoming part of the Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand in March 2017. The conversion to the Hilton brand will not affect guest reservations, and is the next phase in the property's multimillion-dollar, three-year capital-expenditure and property-improvement plan.

“The conversion of The Inverness Hotel & Conference Center to a Hilton Hotels & Resorts property will bring a newly designed hotel to the Denver area, while also offering all the benefits and high-quality service expected from a Hilton hotel,” Susan Bachman, senior director, northwest development, Hilton, said in a statement.

Silverwest Hotels purchased the Inverness Hotel and Conference Center in November 2015 from Lowe Enterprises Investment Management. Room renovations began in November 2016, and will be completed floor-by-floor so as not to affect guest accommodations. Two model rooms have already been completed, with renovations scheduled to be finished in March 2017. Two Roads Hospitality will continue to operate the hotel during the implementation of this plan, and all reservations for guests, group meetings, weddings and catering clients will remain intact.

“We're very excited to announce the conversion of The Inverness Hotel and Conference Center into a Hilton Hotels & Resorts hotel,” Charles Peck, CEO, Silverwest Hotels, said in a statement. “We’re looking forward to sharing the beautiful room renovations and upgrades and all of the wonderful amenities of the Hilton brand with our guests.”

The new guestrooms incorporate natural dark wood furnishings and trim contrasted with off-white walls, drapery and lampshades. Guests will have access to outlets and USB ports on the bases of the lamps, as well as renovated bathrooms with walk-in showers in approximately half of all guestrooms, with natural dark tan marble tiles, glass doors and modern silver fixtures. In addition, headboard walls have been redesigned to showcase carved wood mountain scenery and paneling. The new room design comes on the heels of a $1.3-million renovation to the hotel’s lobby, entrance, food-and-beverage outlets and event corridors, which took place in 2015.
