To complement the needs of our growing communities, McWHINNEY develops hospitality projects with leading hotel industry partners across the western region and in our key markets.
In a joint venture with Stonebridge Companies, McWHINNEY developed six hospitality projects totaling 507,603 square feet and 772 rooms. With these developments, visitors are offered short and long-term lodging options with the convenience of nearby shopping, dining, entertainment and business services.
Three of these hotels were built in Colorado at Centerra. The Residence Inn, Fairfield Inn & Suites, and the Hampton Inn & Suites are all conveniently located at the Interstate 25 and U.S. 34 interchange. Situated in a prime location that is within a five-minute drive to the Loveland-Fort Collins Municipal Airport, a short distance to Rocky Mountain National Park and a 45-minute drive to Denver International Airport (DIA). Guests enjoy hotel services as well as more than 80 nearby shops and boutiques, 27 restaurants and four miles of lakeside trails.
In southern California, McWHINNEY worked with the City of Garden Grove and Stonebridge to redevelop a 28-acre site into a vibrant mixed-use center that draws tourists from nearby Disneyland. The Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn & Suites, and Homewood Suites were planned adjacent to four high-quality restaurants, creating a great experience and some of the highest occupancy rates and sales in the area. McWHINNEY developed a 12-acre indoor water park resort and conference center in partnership with Great Wolf Lodge and the City of Garden Grove two miles from Disneyland and the Anaheim Convention Center. The resort features 603 hotel rooms, a three-acre indoor water park, over 20,000 square feet of conference space and 18,000 square-feet of premier retail and dining options.
In 2016, McWHINNEY entered into a long-term investment partnership with Sage Hospitality. After partnering with Sage on several projects, including Denver’s Union Station and The Crawford Hotel, Dairy Block and The Maven Hotel, the AC Portland and The Elizabeth Hotel in Ft. Collins, the two company’s similar values, culture and vision, made a synergistic partnership more than logical. The partnership has allowed McWHINNEY to continue our purpose of creating great places for people and our promise of providing fabled experiences.
