Hotel Maverick at Colorado Mesa University
LocationGrand Junction, Colorado
Modern Meets Western on Colorado's Western Slope
As a means of capturing an unfulfilled market niche, Colorado Mesa University’s new boutique hotel seeks to bring visitors and notoriety to their expanding campus. Overlooking a future campus green space to the north and future mixed-use campus developments to the south, the new hotel bridges the academic environment with campus life. Deliberately adopting a strikingly separate architectural aesthetic to contrast itself from other campus facilities, the hotel consists of 63 boutique hotel rooms, three of which are custom suites with expansive views of the Western Slope.
Guests are immediately welcomed by the modern western decor in the lobby with soft furnishings and a custom fireplace to warm the guests. A cozy cafe located off the lobby offering views to campus activity provides coffee, drinks, quick bites and an atmosphere indicative of the region. Amenities include a sun-drenched patio with hot tubs and outdoor grilles. The second floor provides a fitness room with expansive views of the surrounding vistas and a multipurpose classroom to host corporate meetings and educational classroom settings. The memorable feature of the hotel is the upper-level restaurant and outdoor patio. The new restaurant is touted as one of the finer restaurants in the city and the outdoor patio provides guests unobstructed views of the beautiful mountains and mesas to the east and southwest outskirts of the city.
