A new hotel is coming to the Golden Triangle district, Element Denver Downtown, located on Elati Street directly south of the Denver Justice Center parking garage. Part of the Starwood/Marriott family of hotels, the new Element hotel will feature 157 extended-stay guestrooms in a seven-story structure.

The site is currently occupied by an auto-repair facility and features a lot of asphalt and a fairly unpleasant sidewalk environment. Below is a Google Earth aerial photo showing the site outlined in yellow, along with a Google Street View image of the existing conditions:

The new building will stack up as follows: The ground floor will feature the main lobby, fitness center, conference room, bar/lounge, an outdoor patio, and the parking garage entry via the alley. The second level will contain valet-only parking spaces for 72 vehicles. Levels three through seven will hold the 157 hotel rooms. The top floor also includes an outdoor terrace and conference center.

Thanks to the Beck Group, the project’s architect and general contractor, here are some renderings of the proposed Element hotel:

This is the proposed ground-floor site plan:

Construction is expected to begin later this spring with completion for late 2018.
