HYATT HOTELS CORP.’S first Thompson Hotels property in Colorado is being developed by an Asian American-owned company. T2 Hospitality, under the leadership of founder and CEO Mike Patel, plans to open the 216-room Thompson Denver in 2021.
T2 Hospitality broke ground for the 11-story boutique hotel recently in Denver’s LoDo neighborhood. Designed by Denver’s DLR Group architectural firm, it will feature 15 luxury suites, a 90-seat ground-floor restaurant and an indoor/outdoor terrace with lounge and bar on the 6th floor. It also will have several meeting spaces.
Thompson Denver will be on Market Street near Denver Union Station, the Robischon Art Gallery and the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver.
“Denver has been a priority market for our Thompson Hotels brand and we are excited to have the opportunity to be bringing it to this vibrant city,” said Hyatt Senior Vice President for Development David Tarr.
Hyatt acquired the Thompson Hotels brand when it purchased Two Roads Hospitality in 2018. In May the company formed a new division to promote its lifestyle brands like Thompson as well as Andaz, Alila, Hyatt Centric, Joie de Vivre Hotels and tommie. Other Thompson Hotels are in Chicago, Nashville and New York, and more are planned for Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Miami, and across the state of Texas.
