More than 22,000 white LED nodes cover the ceiling of the ART Hotel’s entrance in Denver, and from the minute you step out of your car and into the glimmer of the lights, you’ll be swept away into the charm of Denver’s ‘Golden Triangle’ Museum District. The lights, a piece by Leo Villareal, are just one piece of enchanting art that is worked into the design of the ART Hotel (which is actually a museum within itself).
Step inside to find a Sol LeWitt wall drawing, a Frank Gehry fish lamp and a Tracy Emin light sculpture, all before being greeted by a sculpture of a small girl by Kiki Smith right outside the elevators and before you check in.
Your room will not disappoint the artist in you. Each guest room is carefully curated with hand-selected art placed thoughtfully throughout the space. The rooms are designed to blend natural beauty with contemporary design, and the architecture is constructed in such a way that every window offers tantalizing views of the Denver skyline and Rocky Mountains.
And the hotel, of course, is located in the ideal location for an art lover. Next door, you’ll find the Denver Art Museum, and around the corner is the Clyfford Still Museum. Just a stone throw away, you’ll find the RiNo Arts District, a neighborhood decorated with street art by local artists and local gems like the Redline.
