This is the 1600 Market Hotel update you’ve been waiting for!
One of the ugliest and most prominent surface parking lots in downtown—facing the 16th Street Mall no less—has closed for good. This void in the urban fabric will be filled by a new 214-room, 11-story hotel with active ground floor uses to engage pedestrians.
Here’s the scene at 16th and Market today:
The 1600 Market Hotel project is being developed by T2 Hospitality. As we reported in our recent post on the proposed 1637 Blake Hotel project, also by T2 Hospitality, the 1600 Market Hotel will be branded as the Thompson Denver upon opening.

What an excellent improvement to Downtown Denver!
