Loveland lies 40 miles south of the Colorado-Wyoming border.
Construction on the 3,000-acre Centerra development project in Loveland, Colorado, began in mid-2006 and included retail, residential and business office plans. As of 2011, the Promenade Shops at Centerra, Motorplex Marketplace, medical centers, office campuses and Marketplace at Centerra are operating. The development area is split into an eastern and western portion by U.S. Interstate 25, making access to Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado State University and Anheuser-Busch Brewery convenient. Hotels within the development serve visitors’ accommodation needs.
Best Western Crossroads Inn & Conference Center
Located directly across from the Marketplace at Centerra is the Best Western Crossroads Inn & Conference Center. Meeting space and provisional catering services for up to 220 attendees is available. Its 89 rooms were renovated in late 2008, and each now provides a microwave, refrigerator and complimentary high-speed Internet access. Guests can enjoy an outdoor swimming pool and easy access to the Promenade Shops at Centerra East and Boyd’s Lake State Park. Restaurants such as Chick-fil-A, Old Chicago Pizza and Qdoba are located directly across the hotel.
