The New Westin at Denver International Airport
by Tim Larison, CLIA Certified Master Cruise Counselor (MCC)
The new Westin hotel at Denver’s International Airport (DIA) is a wonderful property adjacent to the airport’s main terminal. As the Colorado director of the National Association of Career Travel Agents (NACTA) I was able to arrange an exclusive preview for area travel agents of this exciting new addition to the Denver hotel scene.
The first thing airport visitor’s will notice is the hotel’s unusual shape. As pictured above in a drawing from Starwood Hotels, the hotel has a U shape in the middle. Is it supposed to be shaped like a ship? No, as our Starwood guide Amber explained, the shape is meant to resemble a bird in flight. The dip in the middle was also requested by the airport so that the control tower would have an unobstructed view over the hotel.
