Hilton’s Slate Denver, Mile High City’s newest property

Next week, Hilton will open its new The Slate Denver, a historic new hotel that will bring a new flavor to Hilton’s Tapestry collection.

In total, the 4-story hotel will offer 251 rooms in downtown Denver, just blocks from the city’s Civic Center Park and just north of the Capitol Hill neighborhood.

The hotel sits on the former site of the Emily Griffith Opportunity School, one of America’s earliest business schools founded by educational pioneer Emily Griffith in 1916 as an all-ages school for “all those who wish to learn”. The Slate incorporates this heritage into its design, with typewriter artwork around the hotel and the school’s original staircases and hallways still occupying the building.

Outside of the rooms, the hotel will offer Teachers’ Lounge Food + Drink, a restaurant with a menu filled with local ingredients, including bison from Colorado’s Rock River Ranches and Jumpin’ Good Goat Cheese produced in the heart of the Rockies.

The property will also offer 4,500 square feet of meeting and event space, themed around that educational touch with rooms called Assembly, 1916 Boardroom, Library and Study Hall.

The property is set to officially open on Tuesday, May 24.
