The new owner, in partnership with Greenwood Hospitality Group of Denver, will soon embark on a multimillion-dollar renovation to “bring what I’ll call a component of relevance to the hotel,” comments Greenwood principal Tom Conran.

Conran tells that the hotel remained operational through its foreclosure timeline, and the property itself is still in good shape.
