February 7, 2019 Posted In
Colo. — McWhinney, Colorado-based real estate investor and
developer with expertise in hospitality, commercial, mixed-use and multifamily
assets and master developer of Centerra, is pleased to
announce the Courtyard by Marriott Loveland/Fort Collins will begin welcoming
guests on Friday, Feb. 15. A grand opening ceremony is planned for April.
McWhinney delivered the hotel in partnership with Stonebridge Companies, a privately owned,
innovative hotel owner, operator and developer headquartered in Denver.
The four-story, 67,000-square-foot hotel adds 102 guest rooms to
northern Colorado, supporting the region’s strong demand for hospitality
offerings. The project marks the fourth hotel within Centerra’s 3,000-acre
master-planned community in Loveland.
The addition of the Courtyard by Marriott
will support the market’s expansion and corporate demands from major employers
in the region as well as increased travel and tourism. The hotel’s opening also
will assist the Budweiser Events Center and The Ranch, Larimer County’s
Fairgrounds and Events Complex, in attracting additional events based on
increased hotel room capacity.
“We’re pleased to enhance Centerra’s
collection of hospitality options,” said David Crowder, general manager of
Centerra and vice president of community development for McWhinney. “Centerra
is the heart of northern Colorado and increasing capacity in
response to the region’s continued demand for hospitality services is paramount
to maintaining its position as a premier destination for business and leisure
Located at 6106 Sky Pond Drive near the Interstate 25 and U.S. 34 transportation
corridor, the Centerra hotel sits within walking distance of shopping, dining
and entertainment at The Promenade Shops at Centerra, northern Colorado’s
premier shopping destination, and is adjacent to Chapungu Sculpture Park. The
only permanent exhibit of its kind in the United States, Chapungu Sculpture
Park features more than 80 hand-carved Zimbabwean stone sculptures and plays
host to annual summer concert events, weddings, nonprofit fundraisers and
holiday lighting events.
Hotel amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, 978 square feet of
meeting space, a lounge, outdoor patio, fitness center, market, indoor pool,
hot tub, guest laundry and The Bistro, which offers a variety of breakfast, grab-and-go
lunch and dinner options; an evening bar; and specialty beverages made with
Starbucks coffee, available all day.
McWhinney serves as the co-owner,
co-developer and asset manager of the hotel, with Stonebridge Companies as the co-owner,
co-developer and hotel operator. 2WR + Partners was the architect on the
project while Coe Construction served as general contractor.
The partnership also plans to deliver a Hilton dual-brand property
in Centerra. The
Homewood Suites and Hilton Garden Inn hotels are planned immediately south of
the Courtyard by Marriott and are slated to offer approximately 100 keys each
while sharing a lobby and community spaces. The 135,000-square-foot, five-story,
dual-brand property is planned to feature a restaurant and bar, pool, fitness
center and meeting space. Upon completion of the dual-brand hotel project,
