The Hilton Garden Inn Denver Union Station won't open until April, but the project has already made an award-winning save. Built in 1882 for Denver's all-volunteer fire department, Denver Hose Company No. 1 served a bustling immigrant neighborhood known as the Bottoms. It later became a print shop, then a welding shop, but by the early '90s it was empty and crumbling, and it looked like this last reminder of the area's past would disappear. The developers of the twelve-story hotel managed to save it, though, and the restored structure will reopen as a restaurant named after Woodie Fisher, a Denver fireman who lost his life in an early conflagration.
