Renaissance Denver Stapleton Hotel completed a multimillion-dollar renovation project. The entire hotel has been transformed, including all 400 guest rooms, 40,000 square feet of meeting space, lobby and public spaces.
A new restaurant concept called Fifty300 featuring American Regional Cuisine with Italian influence was added.
“After much anticipation we are thrilled to reveal the hotel’s reimagined look to both Denver and visiting guests,” said Brian Lenfestey, Area General Manager of Renaissance Denver Stapleton Hotel. “This renovation elevates the guest experience and gives us an edge in an ever-evolving city.”
Built in 1986 adjacent to Stapleton Airport, the hotel began its life as a Stouffer Hotel intended to serve travelers to and from Denver. In 1993, the hotel was rebranded as a Renaissance and in 1995, Denver retired the Stapleton Airport and unveiled the new Denver International Airport 20 miles north east.
In 1997, Marriott purchased the Renaissance Brand, and it continues to serve as the ideal location between Denver International Airport and downtown proper.
With the renovation overseen by SANDdesign, Renaissance Denver Stapleton Hotel has been updated with a classic and subdued color scheme, dominated by blue-gray tones and accented with mild earth tones and pops of orange. Strong geometric shapes compliment the architectural features of the exterior of the hotel.
The guest rooms were simplified and modernized with a white, silver and brown color scheme and guest room lounge areas have been renovated with furniture.
The meeting spaces have been revamped with new lighting fixtures, wall coverings, grayscale geometric carpet, and top-of-the line audiovisual.
As part of the $15 million renovation, the hotel unveiled a new restaurant, Fifty300, reminiscent of a high-end ski resort café complete with pseudo ski-lift booths. Inspired by mountain ski towns, the restaurant’s furniture is simple and modern with tables alive with wooden grains, shapes and textures.
The menu is designed by award-winning Executive Chef Charles Fulton, who has been with Renaissance Denver Stapleton hotel since 2010.
“We are excited to roll out brand new food and cocktail menus as well as an entirely new dining concept, Fifty300, as part of the recent renovation,” said Charles Fulton, Executive Chef of Renaissance Denver Stapleton Hotel. “Our team has thoughtfully crafted menu items using regional ingredients that reflect the local culture."
