The Benson Hotel and Faculty Club celebrated its grand opening in July
18, 2023. The hotel is the new hospitality center for the nationally
recognized University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora.
Long considered the gateway to the Rockies, Aurora has evolved into
Colorado’s biotech hub and a health and life sciences research center.
The Benson Hotel, a Preferred Hotel & Resorts member, is adjacent to the
Fitzsimmons Innovation Community, the new business and residential
district focused on medical and bioscience.

The Benson Hotel has been designed to accommodate the needs of the
Aurora community as well as the hospitals and the University, offering
luxury guestrooms, a full-service restaurant, spacious light-filled
meeting facilities, and an elegant ballroom and a garden for weddings
and large social functions. The Benson’s 106 accommodations include a
mix of guestrooms, suites, and an entire floor of apartment-style

The Common Good, The Benson’s 100-seat restaurant, serves a menu of
freshly prepared cuisine created by Executive Chef Donovan Davis, a Four
Seasons Hotels & Resorts veteran.

 Visitors to The Benson Hotel & Faculty Club will experience a premier
Western art collection featuring over 100 original new works by a
selection of contemporary Colorado artists led by William Matthews. The
Faculty Club at The Benson Hotel will serve as an off-campus, private
environment for the CU Anschutz Medical Community leaders and
influencers to gather socially.

The Benson Hotel is named for Bruce Davey Benson, the longest-tenured
President of the University of Colorado (CU) system, from March 2008 to
July 1, 2019. Olympia Hotel Management will operate the hotel, which was
developed by Denver-based Aimco.
