Green Dream

The Living Green Wall at Westin Denver Downtown

Emerging from a multi-million-dollar, property-wide renovation, Westin Denver Downtown debuts 432 redesigned rooms and suites, expanded meeting space, a green living wall, a new grand staircase and more.

When guests enter the hotel, they are immediately greeted by an expansive green living wall. It embodies the property’s commitment to sustainability—and it’s not just for show. The green life on the wall enhances the hotel’s air quality, reducing CO2 and PM2.5 by 21%. As guests continue past the wall, they come across a new grand staircase that leads directly to meeting floors (and while you’re at it, it’s a great photo-op!).

Upon continuing into the guest rooms, visitors will find sleek, modern amenities tied together with a neutral blue color scheme. While relaxing on the Westin Heavenly 2.0 bed, they can enjoy either mountain or city views through sliding glass doors. If a visit to the fitness studio or heated rooftop pool isn’t in the cards, guests can participate in an extensive gear-lending program, or a weekly team-member guided run.

This renovation has added 3,000 additional sq. ft. of lobby-level meeting space to the property’s existing 39,000 sq. ft. of meeting space. Meeting rooms feature wall-to-wall windows and light shades of color for a bright meeting experience.

This renovation brings an additional 14,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space, adding to the 14,600 sq. ft. ballroom—the largest in the city—as well as a 10,000 sq. ft. event lawn. Other spaces include 18 breakout rooms, a conference theater with tiered seating for 100 guests and a high-tech interactive wall and a 6,000 sq. ft. pavilion. Their state-of-the-art tech includes an advanced rigging system that allows AV to come off the floor and make more space for your event. A massive truss supports visual art integrations.

The hotel intentionally avoids traffic overlap with meeting attendees and leisure guests with a separated pool, marketplace and other communal leisure areas, so privacy for your event is certain.
