WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
Delegates from New York and California may be staying in an even swankier hotel than they were already slated for after Denver's Adam's Mark Hotel was sold for $176 million. The 1,125 room hotel will undergo a $70-million renovation and be rebranded under the Starwood Resort and Hotel name.
Within the next 18 months, every inch of the hotel (will) undergo a $70 million renovat(ion) to meet the Sheraton concept.
The renovation will include putting flat-screen TVs in all guest rooms, revamping the food and beverage area with the Sheraton theme and creating a social area where people can use the Internet.
The hotel has 133,000 square feet of meeting space, and will be open during the Aug. 25-28, 2008, Democratic National Convention in Denver. Delegates from New York and California will be staying in the Adam's Mark. - Denver Business Journal
Unless they're able to complete the renovations a full year ahead of schedule the renovations won't be finished in time for the convention. If you've ever stayed in a hotel that's been under construction you know how pleasant it can be. I'm sure the fine people at Starwood will keep any inconveniences to a minimum during the convention. I guess it's still better than staying in a hotel that's an hour away from the Pepsi Center.
