Cherry Creek may be a small neighborhood in south-central Denver, but it has big-city amenities. These include luxury accommodations, one-of-a-kind galleries, boutiques and eateries. Considered the stylish shopping and business district of the metro area, Cherry Creek is less than 5 miles from downtown Denver attractions and 24 miles from Denver's airport (For the actual city of Denver see Denver meeting space or event venues in Denver.) Planners can choose from several meeting venues in Cherry Creek, including brand and boutique hotels that can accommodate groups up to 300.
In fact, hotel venues in Cherry Creek are bristling with AAA Diamond ratings. The 4 Diamond, 196-room JW Marriott Denver Cherry Creek is often the premier choice for meetings. The JW Marriott has 8,400 square feet of meeting space, including the Grand Ballroom accommodating up to 360. JW's on-site restaurant, the Second Home Kitchen + Bar, also embraces the outdoors with patio dining or cocktails around a 15-foot fire pit. The 4 Diamond Loews Denver Hotel and its 5,000 square feet of meeting space offers planners a luxury hotel option a few minutes from the activity of the Cherry Creek shopping area. Planners can still opt for budget-friendly Cherry Creek hotels with meeting space, such as Courtyard by Marriott Denver Cherry Creek; Holiday Inn Cherry Creek; and the Hilton Garden Inn Denver/Cherry Creek, without sacrificing access to the amenities.
The two main shopping venues in Cherry Creek, the Cherry Creek Shopping Mall and Cherry Creek North, are known for upscale and boutique shops. The Cherry Creek Shopping Mall is an enclosed mall with more than 160 of the nation's top retailers, such as Macy's, Louis Vuitton, Eddie Bauer and Saks Fifth Avenue. Cherry Creek North consists of 16 blocks of tree-lined streets with over 320 art galleries, specialty shops, restaurants, spas and more, perfect for attendees to stroll at their leisure.
Both shopping areas offer convenient access to more than 50 restaurants, many with meeting venues. Cherry Creek private dining venues include NoRTH (Modern Italian Cuisine); upscale yet casual dining at Elway's Cherry Creek including Bronco football memorabilia; and the casual Argyll GastroPub, with its Scottish theme, impressive brews and eats from the UK.)
People in Cherry Creek are constantly moving, largely due to the Cherry Creek Trail, a 20-mile, super-pedestrian way. The path is ideal for walking, biking and people-watching. A local favorite, the path connects many of these hotels to The Cherry Creek Mall, Cherry Creek State Park and Downtown Denver.
For a unique outdoor venue, Cherry Creek Marina & Yacht Club, located inside Cherry Creek State Park, is a 5,000-square-foot facility overlooking beautiful Cherry Creek Lake, available for private events.
