Biographical / Historical
The construction of the original Albany Hotel in Denver began in the early 1880s by a builder from Albany, New York. The buidling was completed in 1882. Three years later the original owner found himself in financial difficulties, so he sold the hotel to a firm headed by Senator Thomas M. Patterson and Samuel Morgan, leading figures in Denver of that day. Samuel B. Morgan was a pioneer real estate dealer in Denver, who formed a partnership with others under the firm name of Morgan, French & Company. In 1936 the Patterson family bought the Morgan share.
The hotelwas originally located at 17th and Stout. Annexes to the hotel eventually pushed the structure on down to 18th. The main building was burnt in a large fire on September 2, 1962, and as a result was extensively remodeled. The Albany became one of Denver's major downtown hotels in the 1970s.
