LOVELAND, COLO. – October 17, 2013 – McWhinney and Stonebridge Companies have reached an agreement to develop a fourth hospitality project at Centerra. The new 104-room Courtyard by Marriott will join the three existing hotels at Centerra, the Residence Inn, Fairfield Inn & Suites and Hampton Inn, in Loveland, Colo. Situated in the heart of Northern Colorado’s leading master-planned community, this new contemporary hotel will be located on the east side of Centerra at the northeast corner of I-25 and US Highway 34.
Planned to open in early 2015, this latest Marriott hotel will have direct access to the much anticipated Bass Pro Shops at Centerra and positioned amongst six other leading in-line retail and restaurant pads. The hotel will be within walking distance to Chapungu Sculpture Park at Centerra, a 26-acre public outdoor sculpture park featuring 82 African stone sculptures and a 1.5 mile walking trail, and The Promenade Shops at Centerra, northern Colorado’s first lifestyle center with over seventy specialty shops and restaurants.
“We are pleased to partner with Stonebridge Companies and welcome a fourth hotel property to Centerra,” said Jay Hardy, McWhinney Vice President, General Manager – Centerra. “Loveland serves as an ideal travel destination and our hotel partner continues to play an important role in supporting the growth and exposure of our local community through a city-wide lodging and regional marketing program,” commented Hardy.
Centerra, a 3,000 acre master-planned community, serves as a major transportation corridor welcoming more than 70,000 vehicles per day passing through Loveland and offers direct connections to Fort Collins, Johnstown, Windsor, Estes Park and Greeley via Interstate 25 and Highway 34.
This current generation of Courtyard hotel will feature spacious rooms, modern finishes, which highlight comfort, functionality and sophisticated décor. Amenities planned include free high-speed Internet access, flat-screen HD televisions, mini-refrigerators in guest rooms, hairdryers, coffeemaker with tea service, alarm clock, plush seating, iron and ironing board and large work areas with a desk, lighting, outlets and an ergonomic chair.
“Our twenty-year relationship with trusted developer McWhinney coupled with a growing destination region, makes it the perfect opportunity for us to expand the Marriott brand within the existing Centerra development as we develop our next Colorado property in Loveland,” commented Navin Dimond, Stonebridge Companies President and Chief Executive Officer.
