BOULDER — Owners of the Best Western Plus Boulder Inn have begun the second of a three-phase $3.8 million renovation project to spruce up the 99-room hotel at 770 28th St. in Boulder.

Steven Wallace, Boulder Inn’s general manager, said the renovation that includes a complete redesign, will keep the hotel competitive in an expanding market.

Within the next year, 540 hotel rooms will be added to the city’s existing inventory of 1,728 hotel rooms. New hotels that are expected to open in 2017 include a 172-room Hilton Garden Inn and a 203-room Embassy Suites on the north side of Canyon Boulevard between 26th and 28th streets on the former site of the Golden Buff hotel and Eads Newsstand, plus a 155-room Residence Inn at 26th Street and Canyon Boulevard.

Kephart of Denver provided architectural services while Fort Collins-based Brinkman Construction Inc. was hired to transform the hotel.
