Centrally located between Denver and Boulder, Westminster is a northwest Denver suburb that boasts unobstructed views of the Rocky Mountains. Presenting an urban setting without the downtown nuances, Westminster meeting venues are 20 minutes from Denver International Airport and have convenient access to a variety of entertainment and recreational activities.
Chief among Westminster hotel venues is the Westminster with 60,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor space. Located on the I-36 corridor, the AAA 4 Diamond Westin Westminster offers a Colorado welcome to attendees, beginning with its distinctive western-themed lobby (including an oversized fireplace) with over 30,000 square feet of indoor meeting space conveniently located off to the side. Its 30,000 square feet of outdoor event space, with the Colorado Rockies as a backdrop, gives planners a reason to take their meeting outside. Other Westminster venues that offer limited meeting space are Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Denver – Westminster; Comfort Inn Westminster; Fairfield Inn & Suites Denver North/Westminster; and La Quinta Inn & Suites Westminster Promenade.
One of the most unique event venues in Denver is the Butterfly Pavilion, which hosts 125 events per year. Accommodating up to 250 guests, the Butterfly Pavilion features an outdoor garden and a rainforest full of tropical plants, allowing attendees to get up-close-and-personal with 50 species of butterflies, a variety of anthropods, invertebrates and small sea animals.
Another outdoor event venue is the Promenade Terrace at City Park, the city's newest meeting space. The 2.1-acre, $1-million outdoor amphitheater accommodates approximately 500 and is located east of the Westin at Westminster City Park. Additional unique venues in Westminster include Adventure Golf & Raceway, three NHL-sized ice-skating rinks at Ice Centre at the Promenade, Water World, and hundreds of restaurants.
The Westminster Promenade is an outdoor pedestrian hub with filled with dining and entertainment venues in Westminster (it is also steps away from the Westin Westminster). Take in a movie at the AMC 24-screen Movie Theatre. Book a group dinner at the brew pub, Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery. Have the group's improv funny bone tickled at MadCap Theatre.
For a fun-filled unique venue for up to 2,000, Dave & Busters' 40,000 square feet of great food and fun includes private banquet rooms and complete audiovisual equipment in their showroom and executive boardroom.
For the sports-minded, golf is within driving distance of any Westminster meeting.
