Gaylord to build hotel, entertainment complex near Denver

AURORA, Colo. (AP) -

Officials in the Denver suburb of Aurora have approved an incentive package to help build an $800 million, Western-themed hotel and entertainment complex.

The Denver Post reports that the package was unanimously backed by city councilors on Monday and is worth up to $300 million.

Gaylord Entertainment - which owns the Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville - is behind the project near Denver International Airport. CEO Colin Reed plans an announcement in Aurora on Tuesday.

The National Western Stock Show & Rodeo is expected to move to a facility near the planned complex. However, stock show organizers and Gaylord don't have a deal or a contract yet.

The planned hotel would have 1,500 rooms, which would make it the largest in metro Denver.
