Highlights include:

  • The majestic Union Station, recently renovated and featuring a number of shops and restaurants.
  • The ample green space that permeates the city. Steps away from the hotel you'll find Civic Center Park, and just a short distance away you'll find City Park, Washington Park, and the Cherry Creek Path.
  • The Golden Triangle, which is home to many art galleries, the Clyfford Still Museum, and the Denver Art Museum, which is a marvel of modern architecture designed by Libeskind and the site of our dinner and reception Saturday night.
  • Denver's diverse neighborhoods, from the markets of Historic Larimer Square, to the posh night life of Lower Downtown; from the craft breweries of the Ballpark district to the eclectic restaurants and craft cocktail bars of the Lower Highlands.

Additionally, Denver boasts a number of hidden gems, including the Dikeou Collection, the Green Russell Speakeasy, and the Santa Fe Arts District. During the weekend of SESP, Denver will also host the Great American Beer Festival!
