DIA and the Westin have announced the opening date for the new hotel in front of the terminal. The Westin Denver International Airport will officially open at 3 p.m. on November 19, 2015. The 433,000 square foot, 14-story hotel, at the fifth busiest airport in the United States, has 519 guest rooms.

The hotel is designed entirely with walls of towering, shimmering glass, overlooks both the mountains and DIA flight paths, and is part of Denver’s new Hotel and Transit Center program. Building upon imagery of flight and aviation, the sleek form resembles a bird with its wings extended as it hovers above the public plaza, framing and accenting the acclaimed tents of the Jeppesen Terminal.

The 37,000 square-foot conference center is one of the few above-ground conference centers located at an airport, and will feature a Grand ballroom, junior ballroom, and 15 additional meeting/board rooms, bringing it to a total of 19 meeting rooms. In addition to the hotel and conference center, there will be an 82,000 square foot open air public plaza, a transit center, and commuter rail connection.
