Hotel Teatro Completes Multi-Million Dollar Guest Room Renovation
Hotel Teatro, Denver’s original boutique hotel, announces the completion of a $2.5 million property-wide guest room renovation. Since the project’s start in late 2017, all 110 guest rooms have undergone significant updates and now feature custom-built hardwood furniture alongside stylish and comfortable décor.
Guest rooms now offer guests custom-stained white oak cabinetry; a subtle grey fleece wall treatment; new 50-inch flat-screen televisions; new furniture, including a custom chaise lounge, lounge chair, nightstands, and coffee table; updated, design-forward soft goods; new lighting; creative touches such as terrariums and contemporary artwork; and more. Designed by internationally recognized interior design and architecture firm Parker-Torres Design Inc., and influenced by the thriving city of Denver and its Rocky Mountain backdrop, the updated rooms blend tailored elements with natural materials to achieve an updated residential aesthetic.
“We’re proud to showcase our new guest rooms,” said David Coonan, general manager. “The first floor of the property was renovated in 2014, and we continue to receive positive feedback regarding the distinctive, thoughtful design. We’re confident our guests will similarly respond to the new guest rooms and find a sense of home blended with a uniquely ‘Denver’ aesthetic.”
As Denver’s original boutique hotel, Hotel Teatro provides guests with a modern experience juxtaposed with the historic setting of the 20th century Renaissance Revival building in which it is housed. The property was built in 1911 as the Denver Tramway Building, with an original design that incorporates a modern steel skeleton and traditional Renaissance Revival-style edifice. In 1997, architects began restoring the Denver Tramway Building, transforming it into the exquisite building that stands as Hotel Teatro, which opened in 1999. The first floor of the property underwent a large-scale renovation in 2014 that included the addition of The Nickel and The Study. The new guest rooms are designed to reflect the look of the property’s first floor. HotelTeatro.com

“Our new location offers far greater visibility for the museum’s three collections—international decorative art, Colorado and regional art, and the work of Vance Kirkland—which will complement the collections of the museums nearby and make it even more convenient for art lovers to experience all the internationally important artwork Denver offers in the Golden Triangle,” says Hugh Grant, Kirkland Museum’s Founding Director and Curator.
All three collections are displayed chronologically in salon style, allowing visitors to time travel as they walk through the new building. The museum has acquired a number of stunning new pieces in each of the three collection areas that were unveiled today.
Kirkland Museum features an inaugural exhibition of 19th and 20th-century American prints, Prints Near and Far: Contrasting Regional and National Prints from the Kirkland and Mayer Collections, in the new exhibition space through June 17, 2018. KirklandMuseum.org
