Arvada’s first hotel, the Hilton Garden Inn Arvada, celebrated its first birthday March 15 with cake for the community.
“I think our first year went exceptionally well,” said Jim Burkett, general manager of Hilton Garden Arvada. “We exceeded our expectations in many areas.”
Some of those areas include summer occupancy and finding dependable employees.
“We can’t be successful without successful employees,” Burkett said.
The 139 room hotel with 2,262 square feet of meeting space is located at 5445 Olde Wadsworth Blvd. in Olde Town Arvada.
“The welcoming we get from the community is amazing,” said Megan Patton, director of sales and marketing for Hilton Garden Arvada.
Moving into its second year of business, leadership at the hotel is hoping to connect more with the community through outreach. Last quarter staff got involved with local retirement homes by delivering valentines to its residents and with the local food bank by holding a food drive. Leadership hopes to do more of these activities in the coming year.
