The Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel is committed to green initiatives and sustainability; a focus easily seen in the 3,195 pounds of soap recycled, 6,505 pounds of waste diverted from landfills and 5.5 million gallons of water saved in the past year.
The hotel's tower, built by legendary architect I.M. Pei was actually constructed by using aggregate from the site in 1959, one of the first sustainably constructed buildings in Denver. At the Sheraton Denver Downtown, sustainability isn't just an initiative, but a legacy.

US Travel Campaign to Boost Awareness of Meetings
Submitted by Admin on Feb 06, 2012 - 4:16pm
The meetings and events sector has been receiving some considerable attention lately from the highest level of government. Why? A few weeks ago, the U.S. Travel Association launched a major year-long campaign – called “Vote Travel” – to raise awareness of the travel industry’s impact on the economy and build support for travel industry policy and advocacy, among other goals. As the largest hotel in Colorado with the most meeting space, the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel is uniquely positioned to join the conversation and highlight the critical importance of meetings and conventions to the economy – which happens to be another objective of the “Vote Travel” campaign. For more details and to read our thoughts on the subject (GM Mike Ehmann’s to be specific, as he’s quoted!), check out the article below, which appeared in online news resource Hotel News Now on Feb. 9, 2012.
