Integrated commercial and academic spaces provide students with real world learning experiences

What do you get when you combine a higher education classroom building, teaching laboratory, commercial hotel, and conference center? You get the Hotel & Hospitality Learning Center, home to the Hospitality, Tourism, and Event Department at Metropolitan State University of Denver. It's the only facility in Colorado of its kind and one of 11 in the nation.

A blend of commercial—a Springhill Suites by Marriott—and academic spaces is integrated into a single building to help further the school’s mission to provide students with hands-on learning opportunities and real-world experiences. The academic program includes food and beverage teaching laboratories, classrooms, and faculty offices. The hotel includes 150 guest rooms, 7,500 square feet of meeting space, and 75 structured parking spaces.
