The Jacquard, Cherry Creek North’s third new hotel in less than 2 years, set to open in early 2018

Cherry Creek North’s third new hotel set to open in less than two years has a name: The Jacquard.

Stonebridge Cos. officially announced the moniker Tuesday during a “topping off” celebration for the eight-story, 201-room luxury hotel at Second Avenue and Milwaukee Street. The Jacquard is on schedule to open early next year.

“Our goal is to position this hotel as the highest quality of all the hotels in Cherry Creek,” Stonebridge CEO Navin Dimond said in an interview before the event. “We will firmly position this hotel at 4 1/2 stars.”

The Jacquard will be part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection, a global portfolio of luxury hotels that maintains an independent identity while gaining access to Marriott’s reservation and loyalty program backbone. The only other Autograph property in Denver is The Brown Palace Hotel.

In Cherry Creek North, it will join an increasingly robust hotel market that this time last year only had one property with 100-plus rooms, the JW Marriott.

The first hotel to open in a decade in the tony neighborhood, Sage Hospitality’s 154-room Halcyon debuted in August on the site of the former post office on Columbine Street. The independent luxury hotel promised guests the “homey” feel of staying with a friend, albeit a very well-off friend.
