Kimpton to open new Denver hotel

Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, part of IHG Hotels & Resorts’ Luxury & Lifestyle Collection, has signed a deal to open the first lifestyle hotel in the burgeoning Denver Tech Center neighborhood in early 2024.

The Kimpton Denver Tech Center will be the boutique hotel brand’s third property in the city, joining the Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Downtown Denver and Kimpton Hotel Born in Union Station.

Owned by DTC Hospitality Investors, and developed by Cypress 16 in conjunction with McClurg Century Investments, Kimpton Denver Tech Center will be a new-build boutique hotel with 190 guestrooms, including 14 suites. KGD Architecture will serve as the property architect and Karamann will oversee the hotel’s interiors. Harvey Cleary Builders will serve as the general contractor for the construction of the project.

The property will include a fitness center, a restaurant and bar, a rooftop bar and lounge and 7,000 square feet of meetings and events space.

“The U.S. mountain region has always been an appealing market for us,” said Mike DeFrino, CEO, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, in a statement. “The success of properties such as the Hotel Born in Denver’s Union Station and the Armory Hotel in Bozeman, Mont., confirm that our adventurous spirit and work hard play hard mentality have found a like-minded home here. We’re thrilled to be expanding in Colorado and look forward to working alongside our partners at DTC Hospitality to bring their vision to life and infuse our heartfelt care and passion for highly personalized experiences into the new Kimpton Denver Tech Center.”

Denver Tech Center has become a gateway to the city’s southeast business corridor and a hub for the region’s high-tech industry. The area is accessible from downtown Denver via the Southeast Light Rail and travelers inbound from Denver International Airport.
