The Inverness Hotel and Conference Center in Englewood has announced that it will become part of the Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand by March 2017. This conversion will not affect guest reservations, though the property is set to undergo a multimillion dollar improvement plan.

“The conversion of The Inverness Hotel & Conference Center to a Hilton Hotels & Resorts property will bring a newly designed hotel to the Denver area,” says Susan Bachman, senior director, northwest development, Hilton. “While also offering all the benefits and high-quality service expected from a Hilton hotel.”

Silverwest Hotels has been managing the hotel since November 2015 and recently embarked on a large room renovation project; the renovations began in November 2016. The new rooms will offer outlets and USB ports on the base of lamps, walk-in showers and modern fixtures. After the conversion, Two Roads Hospitality will continue to retain the on-site event planners.

“We're very excited to announce the conversion of The Inverness Hotel and Conference Center into a Hilton Hotels & Resorts hotel,” says Charles Peck, CEO, Silverwest Hotels. “We’re looking forward to sharing the beautiful room renovations and upgrades and all of the wonderful amenities of the Hilton brand with our guests.”

Whether a team is still working from home, or has made a phased return to the office, the past few months have seemed monotonous with not as many in-person meetings and events to break up work weeks. Meeting with a group boosts motivation, and Zoom meetings can’t compare when it comes to rallying morale. After months at home, planning small meetings and corporate getaways away from home is a great way to motivate and revitalize a team’s performance–especially when the destination provides all of the benefits that Colorado offers.

 

As working from home has become the norm since March, so has connecting with coworkers using webcams and Skype. Button downs and sweatpants have become a work-friendly outfit, and Zoom happy hours were the only way to grab a drink with friends. Especially for teams that used to meet in the office every day, a chance to shake up the (new) same old and safely reconnect in person is much needed after months apart. An out-of-state trip could be a memorable way to sync up with coworkers again, as well as do wonders for motivation and productivity upon return.

 

So far, webcams and Zoom meetings have been an essential part of 2020. While digital options are functional placeholders for meetings, chatting with a coworker over Skype doesn’t always set up a team for success. Human connection is vital to team building, and hosting safe, small meetings is a great way to revitalize teams after months of working from home.
