DENVER, COLORADO-(Oct. 19, 2010) - The beds are ready to be turned down, wines are waiting to be uncorked, lights are dimmed in the Spa, and tables are set in the ballroom – it's opening day at Four Seasons Hotel Denver, where 250 staff are ready to welcome guests to stay, dine, spa and gather.
"Excitement has been building as we made final preparations to welcome our first guests to Four Seasons Hotel Denver," says Thierry Kennel, general manager of the 239-room Hotel. "And there's more to come – on November 6, we'll host a Grand Opening Party featuring Colorado's own OneRepublic. This star-studded event is sure to be one of the highlights of the city's social season."Four Seasons Hotel Denver: Highlights
