Purchase Part of a Major Capital Expenditures and Property Improvement Plan
Denver – November 20, 2015 – Silverwest Hotels LLC (Silverwest), a hotel investment and management company, today announced the acquisition of The Inverness Hotel and Conference Center. The purchase expands the company’s presence in Colorado and also signals the beginning of a multimillion dollar capital expenditure and property improvement plan for the property. The Inverness has been a Destination Hotels property since 1995.
“We’re thrilled to be acquiring The Inverness Hotel and Conference Center,” said Charlie Peck, co-founder of Silverwest. “We look forward to implementing a plan that we hope will substantially enhance the hotel’s appeal and our guest’s experience. While the transition is planned to be seamless for our guests, we’re looking forward to announcing the changes we’ll be bringing to the property,” he added.
Silverwest plans to begin renovations in 2016 designed to enhance and improve all areas of the hotel. Total renovation of guest rooms is scheduled to begin in November 2016 and is expected to take 3-4 months to complete. Destination Hotels will continue to operate and manage the property. Operations management will largely remain unchanged, and all reservations for guests, group meetings, weddings and catering clients will remain intact.
