ART Hotel Denver, Curio Collection by Hilton recently completed its $3 million property-wide refresh to its 165 guestrooms and suites, meeting and event spaces, 24-hour fitness center, private dining and public spaces.

The art-centric hotel, located in Denver’s Golden Triangle District, provides guests with a new enhanced experience inspired by its art collection curated by the esteemed Dianne Vanderlip, former curator of modern and contemporary art at Denver Art Museum. Perfect for cultural explorers, ART Hotel Denver serves as the keystone to the downtown Denver area.

“We are thrilled to usher in a refresh for guests of The ART Hotel Denver with a new era of design and aesthetic,” said Alison Mitchell, general manager, ART Hotel Denver. “Staying true to our artistic ethos and the cultural roots of our surrounding community, we are committed to offering a captivating and exceptional experience to all.”

Spearheaded by TDA Interiors, the refresh of The ART Hotel Denver intends to keep the iconic artistic essence and neighborhood influence that serves as the basis of the property. Contemporary works grace the hotel’s two galleries, inspire its meeting rooms, spill into the hallways and adorn every guestroom. Floor-to-ceiling windows fill the property with natural light, allowing each piece to fully be experienced.

Pops of color in the new custom furniture, paint and carpet seamlessly complement the hotel’s natural finishes, modern design and comprehensive art collection of original works of art celebrating the creative spirit of 20th– and 21st-century artists around the world. Each guestroom reflects a refreshed design concept featuring navy textured carpet accented by blue, yellow and green seating chairs; window drapery; colorful bedding fabric; and an upgraded bathroom with white Italian marble.

Guests and locals delight in the hotel’s cosmopolitan FIRE Restaurant and its outdoor lounge, which embodies the American art and craft of playful yet sincere hospitality in a modern setting drawing on the energy of the city below.

The property-wide refresh also includes an enhancement of its 7,500 square feet of flexible meeting and event spaces, including new furniture, carpet, lighting, baseboards, paint, wall coverings, and audio and visual upgrades. This includes a refreshed 3,100-square-foot ballroom that can be divided into three sections, conference rooms, a boardroom, private dining spaces and an outdoor terrace space for smaller events.

Through a new national partnership with Soothe, guests of The ART Hotel Denver can book on-demand, spa-quality massage treatments in the comfort of the newly refreshed guestrooms. Other wellbeing enhancements include Peloton Bikes in the refreshed 24-hour fitness center outfitted with new furniture, rubber flooring, wall covering and finishes.

Come Face-to-Face with Mountain Gorillas on a Trek in Uganda

Not a word was spoken as I settled into a cozy spot on the outdoor terrace just outside the main lodge at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge in Uganda. The air was so still the ice in my single malt seemed to echo off the forest in the distance as it clanked against the glass. I sat among a handful of fellow adventurers, each sitting silently beneath the night sky for one collective goal. Moments earlier, we learned a troop of mountain gorillas had made their way down the mountain near our lodge, and we left our meals to instead sit in eager anticipation of hearing the guttural grunts of the primates below. The chills on my arms never left me that night, even as I made my way up a stone pathway to my personal banda (guestroom). Thankfully, sleep came quickly for me that night as I drifted into dreams of what my next day would bring.

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
