Grand Opening Delayed Until July 26th
As you may remember from our previous posts the Denver Union Station Grand Opening was to have occurred yesterday.
Clearly that didn’t happen so please don’t race over there to enjoy the New Union Station without checking to make sure your destination restaurant has opened. The Union Station Alliance announced that there was still some time needed on construction so the Grand Opening would be delayed. They didn’t mention which of the different eateries might be running behind in their finishing touches but it sounds like a wise choice to wait until everyone is ready. After all, what sort of a GRAND opening would it be if there was still hammering and construction tarps littered around.
I think we can all patiently wait until July 26th to enjoy the amazing new Union Station Terminal in all it’s glory.
The Crawford Hotel Did Open
First let’s talk about what did not get delayed. The New Crawford Hotel DID open and that means people are actually spending the night in the new Historic Union Station. If you read our previous post about Stoic and Genuine from this past week you know that a few friendly diners at the table next to us were in a group along with Dana Crawford that were to be among the first to stay in this new hip urban Denver hotel.
Curious about what a night’s stay might cost at the new Crawford, and to confirm they were indeed open, we did a little reservation hunting on the Crawford Hotel website.
Rooms definitely came up as being available AND they are encouraging folks to be the very first to stay with a “For a limited time, we are offering a “Be The First” 30% off offer”.
Here is what the booking calendar looked like when we pulled it up.
So that confirms the hotel is open. With rates just over $200 for downtown I am guessing it will be booked out quickly. If you are curious about Denver’s newest hotel in the Historic Union Station you can read the Trip advisor reviews that have begun to flow in. It looks like the Bar / Restaurant within the Crawford Hotel is up and running as well.
That is still on our to do list.
Stoic and Genuine is Open
Read our great review of Stoic and Genuine to learn about this delicious new Oyster and Seafood Bar that opened this past week at the Historic Union Station. The delay in the Grand Opening was not a delay for S & G. They seem to have their top notch food and service in place.
