Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco Denver has unveiled its newly renovated lobby and meeting spaces. The new design pairs Western influences with Denver’s bustling city charm and is the final step in the hotel’s complete renovation. In 2011, the hotel’s 189 guestrooms were redesigned and in 2010, its award-winning restaurant, Panzano, was remodeled.
Renowned interior designer Susan Caruso, who designed the renovated guestrooms, was tasked with overhauling the hotel’s acclaimed lobby and meeting spaces. Her theme, “Rugged Cowboy Meets City Slicker,” drew inspiration from the hotel’s location, situated in the historic center of a modern city.
The lobby boasts bronze, iron and rustic metal fixtures that mix classic styles with modern cut globes. Guests will find a combination of dark wood furnishings, comfortable seating, and locally themed artwork, commissioned to complement the existing decorative ceiling, a popular attraction in Denver that was not altered during the renovation.
Downstairs in the meeting spaces, the lush carpeting carries guests toward a pair of backlit photographs flanking the foyer and depicting Denver during a bygone era. The ballroom and meeting rooms are updated with glowing copper and cream walls, graceful sconces and silky fabric drum pendants. The refurbished Wine Cellar features modern fixtures and fabrics as well as a stacked stone wine display and exposed brick walls.
Hotel Monaco Denver is a boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Denver within walking distance of Larimer Square, 16th Street Mall, and the Colorado Convention Center, as well as sporting complexes, dining and nightlife. The full-service hotel offers such personal touches as a pet-friendly environment, hosted evening wine hour and a goldfish for every guestroom upon request. To learn more, visit www.monaco-denver.com.
