Meeting Customer Tech Demands with the Link at Sheraton
We just read a great article in Hotel Interactive about how hotels are trying to meet and exceed customer tech demands by offering programs and services that (hopefully) differentiate them from the competition. The piece quotes Starwood's Chief Brand Officer Phil McAveety, who talks about the Link at Sheraton, our take on the Internet Cafe.
Kudos from the Colorado Democratic Party and the Global Down Syndrome Foundation
Fall is in full swing here in Denver, with snow in the mountains and a chill in the air. But with Thanksgiving just around the corner and the holidays quickly approaching, there's no time like the present to start planning for winter, spring - and summer! - meetings and events. And of course, there's no better place than the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel. We host many meetings (both large and small) as well as special events. But don't take our word for it - check out some feedback we received from the Colorado Democratic Party and the Global Down Syndrome Foundation, who recently held high-profile events at our property.
A Nice Thank You from the Girl Scouts of Colorado
We recentely received a very nice note from Greg Movesian, EVP of Resource Development for the Girl Scouts of Colorado, folllowing their annual Thin Mint Dinner, which was held at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel on October 23:
"Last night was great! My compliments to the chef – the food was delicious and the service was wonderful! My staff was very appreciative of all the help they received from Sheraton staff following the event as well. I’m very pleased that we moved our event to the Sheraton, and thank you for guiding us through the process."
Thank YOU Greg - and the Girl Scouts of Colorado - for selecting us as your partner. We look forward to working with you again next year - and in the years to follow!
November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month - Why Not Try Quitting Now?
November is officially Lung Cancer Awareness Month, and hotels around the world are encouraging guests to take a proactive approach to end smoking habits and reduce their chances of lung cancer. HotelChatter lists a few packages, programs and treatments being offered by a select few in this article, including properties in the UK, Australia, Portugal and - closer to home - southern Florida.
Of course, there's always the cold turkey route...but friends and family might not want you sticking close to home for that. So go ahead - book a night (or two or three) at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel instead!
Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel Hosts Denver's Annual Pink Tie Affair for Breast Cancer Awareness
We really enjoyed this article by our friend Joanne Davidson at the Denver Post about the 2012 Pink Tie Affair that was held at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel on Oct. 27. Approximately 1,000 guests helped the Susan G. Komen for the Cure's Denver Affiliate fight breast cancer by wearing pink outfits and accessories and pledging $420,000 for research and treatment. Way to go! We think EVERY month should be Breast Cancer Awareness Month - let's keep working together to promote awareness, share information and provide greater access to services.
