JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE is honored to share that the DoubleTree by Hilton Greeley was honored with an Excellence in Community Design award from the City of Greeley. These awards are given to projects constructed, redeveloped or created during 2017 or 2018 that demonstrated exceptional design elements.
“Excellent design has the ability to both lift our spirits and improve a business’ bottom line, so we celebrate those who make a commitment to high quality construction and innovation,” said Brad Mueller, director of community development of City of Greeley, in a news release.
When JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE was hired to design Greeley’s first downtown hotel and conference, we wanted to build something that would reflect the town’s rich history, while also emulating a promising future for the community. The six-story, 147-room hotel includes a 12,000-square-foot ballroom – the largest in Greeley – with boardrooms, an executive lounge, restaurant and bar, a fitness center and indoor and outdoor spa. The lobby pays homage to Greeley’s prideful history with a mix of rustic and modern looks with barn-style doors, wood floors and steel desks.
Since the opening of the hotel in September 2017, we have watched Greeley undergo a profound revitalization. Local businesses have enjoyed hundreds of new visitors thanks to various conferences, meetings and galas booked at the new hotel. The opening of the DoubleTree at Greeley also opened the door for several additional projects. South Maddie, a 220-unit apartment complex just east of the University of Northern Colorado campus, is slated to open late 2019. This project is predicted to provide a “domino effect” for downtown Greeley retail, according to developers in the area.
We continue to be proud of the lasting impact this special hotel has had on the city of Greeley.
