Holliday Fenoglio Fowler announced it has closed the sale of the DoubleTree Denver–Aurora. The 248-room full-service hotel, located at 13696 East Iliff Pl. in Aurora, was marketed by HFF on behalf of the seller—GTIS Partners. The property was purchased by New York-based Garrison Investment Group for an undisclosed amount.

The DoubleTree Denver–Aurora, built in 1983, is located between Denver’s major highways I-25 and I-70 near the 6.5 million-square-foot Anschutz Medical Center and Aurora Town Center Mall. The hotel features 10 meeting rooms totaling over 12,700 square feet and other amenities such as a full-service restaurant and bar, café, fitness center, indoor pool and business center.

The hotel will continue its affiliation with the DoubleTree by Hilton brand, and Aimbridge Hospitaly will continue to manage the property. Senior Managing Director Bill Stadler and Managing Director John Bourret led the HFF team representing GTIS Partners.
