Hello, Halcyon!

Cherry Creek North hotel a stylish newcomer.

halcyon-logoTwo months ago, I posted news of the high-tech, high-touch features of the Halcyon Hotel that was about to open in Denver’s tony Cherry Creek North.  I get a lot of news about hotel openings, but I post very few that I haven’t seen or experienced. This one, however, interested me because of the location and the features. At the time, I wrote, “No pix yet, because I haven’t been there, and there as yet are no images on the hotel’s website, but I’m intrigued enough to post it now.”

The Colorado Tourism Office hosted a reception at the Halcyon, so I can now confirm that it is delivering on its promise and I also have some photos to post:

Sophisticated décor with clean-lined furniture, white bed linens and well-placed lighting in all guest rooms.
