ATLANTA – IHG Hotels & Resorts announced that the second Atwell Suites hotel is now under construction in Denver, owned by Kendall Combs and KJ Hotel Properties.

With close proximity to the airport, we know its convenient location along with the property’s flexible design will appeal to both business and leisure travelers looking for a fulfilling experience.”
