DENVER, Colo., April 13, 2017 — The Westin Denver International Airport is both a stunning piece of architecture as well as a luxurious hotel for travelers coming to and from Denver International Airport (DEN). The huge steel and glass structure, shaped like a pair of wings, is clearly visible from the airport entrance on Pena Blvd and from the air upon approach. The white tents that cover the main terminal reflect from the mirror-like windows of the structure.

The unusual design of the hotel accommodates 519 guest rooms, 35 suites and a large conference center without interfering with roadways or violating the height restrictions of the airport.

One of the best things about staying at this property is that it is only 150 feet from the terminal entrance; you can sleep in longer if you have an early flight. A transit center on the lower level can connect you to Union Station or downtown in about 35 minutes. Trains run every 15 minutes during peak times, 30 during non-peak.

The adjoining plaza is an impressive space, larger than a football field. Plans include using it for various events, bringing visitors from the city via the transit system.

Inside the hotel, the lobby area and rooms are bright and white, with exposed columns throughout the building. Unobstructed, wall-sized, guest-room windows afford grand views of the nearby mountains, airport tents, runways and the transit center. Taking an airport hotel room usually means having to endure jet engines screaming from the sky, but here, careful design translates into a quiet, serene experience.

Most guest rooms are decorated in a neutral color palette reflecting their clean comfort. Each comes with Westin’s signature Heavenly® series, including Heavenly® Bed, Bath and Shower.

Guests can enjoy a dip in the hotel’s 11th floor swimming pool while enjoying views of the DEN Terminal’s white tents, meant to represent the nearby Rocky Mountains. Those who want to stay in shape while traveling can pop into the WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio.

Dining options on-site include a Starbucks and Grill and Vine, featuring Colorado traditional cuisine with a twist and menus offering healthy SuperFoodsRx™.

The Westin Denver International Airport Hotel is one of the few properties around the world to achieve LEED Gold® certification. This commitment to sustainability includes high-efficiency lighting, fixtures that conserve water, green housekeeping practices, and waste minimization.

For those flying out of DEN or who are laying over, the Westin Denver International may be the perfect place to spend the night. For beauty, efficiency, and ease of travel, the Westin DEN is hard to beat.
