DENVER, Colo. - The ART Hotel Denver, a brilliant boutique hotel conveniently located in downtown Denver’s Golden Triangle district, and Condé Nast Traveler’s 2020 Reader’s Choice Awards No. 22 hotel in the world; No. 9 hotel in the U.S. and the No. 1 hotel in the Southwest and West, today announced it has joined Hilton’s upper upscale Curio Collection. The exclusive global portfolio of more than 90 handpicked hotels and resorts caters to travelers seeking local discovery and authentically curated experiences. Originally opened in June 2015, the ART Hotel Denver, Curio Collection by Hilton is located within walking distance of the famed Denver Art Museum, the Clyfford Still Museum and more than 16 other galleries, museums, world-class public art installations, shopping destinations, historic landmarks and surprising locales that encompass one of Colorado’s most dynamic urban destinations.
“We are honored and excited to have the opportunity to add our hotel to the global collection of unique and distinctive Curio Collection properties across the country and around the world,” said Aaron Bajorek, hotel manager. “Our recent Condé Nast Traveler 2020 Reader’s Choice Awards accolade underscores the unique and unparalleled experience The ART brings to Denver, and our partnership with Curio Collection only serves to position our hotel as the premier choice for both business and leisure travelers.”
In the heart of Denver's Golden Triangle Museum District, the ART Hotel Denver pays homage to its iconic next-door neighbors and expansive museum district. Surrounded by the city’s cultural and architectural landmarks, and in proximity to over 100 restaurants, bars and clubs, the ART Hotel Denver enjoys a privileged location in Denver’s Golden Triangle neighborhood—a walkable and burgeoning arts district perfect for gallery hopping and cultural exploration—often referred to as the masthead of downtown Denver.
The ART adds another layer to this rich environment by presenting a collection of original works of art that celebrate the creative spirit of 20th and 21st century artists around the world. Experiential, intimate and refined, the ART is a modern architectural gem bursting with unique, multi-sensory installations. In-house curator, the esteemed Dianne Vanderlip, has assembled a collection of more than 40 pieces that boast the “who’s who” of modern art, including Claus Oldenberg, Tracey Emin, John Baldessari, Ed Rucha, Leo Villareal and Sol LeWitt. Many pieces of original artwork commissioned specifically for the ART have been carefully curated to maximize the guest experience from the moment of arrival. Each guestroom floor is inspired by an individual artist, whose original artwork is stylistically translated throughout each room and suite.
Guests can relax in one of the 165 stylishly appointed guestrooms or one of the twenty well-appointed suites, each completely reimagined with amenities and décor created with today’s modern traveler in mind. Other highlights of the hotel include FIRE restaurant and lounge, which embodies the American art and craft of playful yet sincere hospitality in a modern contemporary setting that draws on the energy of the city below; a 24-hour fitness center and for those seeking a memorable, event, conference or wedding, more than 7,500 square feet of flexible event and meeting space that can accommodate up to 350 guests. The hotel also offers ample and diverse spaces for smaller group events, including conference rooms, a boardroom, private dining spaces and an outdoor terrace space. As part of Curio Collection, and with the health and safety of guests and staff top of mind, The ART has implemented a number of enhancements in order to adhere to local government standards. The property is also participating in the Hilton CleanStay Program to help guests enjoy a clean and safe experience during their stay. The new standards under Hilton CleanStay include a Hilton CleanStay Room Seal to show that a room has not been accessed since being thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, additional cleaning of common areas and items, contactless check-in, innovative disinfection technology and flexible housekeeping options.
The ART also takes part in Hilton’s EventReady with CleanStay global meetings and events program designed to create event experiences that are clean, flexible, safe and socially responsible. EventReady provides curated solutions with creative food and beverage, thoughtful technology resources, elevated standards and practices with spaces designed for physical distancing, and reimagined ways to meet and gather.
