The resort has also been honored by Smart Meetings, Mountain Living Magazine and Colorado Meetings + Events.Developed by Colorado’s East West Partners, The Westin Riverfront earned its Silver LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council last year, making it only the ninth hotel in the U.S. to earn Silver LEED status and the first in the Westin brand to receive this green accolade.
