Unique artwork hangs on crisp, white walls in each of the 165 guestrooms and suites — a magnificent touch underlining the hotel’s artistic theme. Wake up underneath a deluxe down comforter to spectacular views of Denver’s striking mountains or its charming cityscape. Pamper yourself in your stylish bathroom, crafted from white Italian marble. If you book a suite, slip into your custom robe, select a beverage from your refreshment bar, and watch the skyline twinkle from your private balcony.
Use the 24-hour concierge service for recommendations and reservations, while a nightly turndown service ensures that your guestroom or suite remains impeccable. Complimentary coffee and infused water can be found at the hotel’s lounge bar, known as the Living Room, and a guided art tour takes place on Saturdays, making the hotel perfect for immersing yourself in Denver’s rich culture. With its close proximity to the city's financial district, state capitol building, and convention center, while offering 4,100 square feet of on-site meeting space, the hotel is ideal for business visits.
At the ART, a hotel, the creative streak continues in the kitchen, where each and every dish is a masterpiece. FIRE has a number of vibrant settings spread across the hotel — restaurant, lounge, and terrace — each adorned with arresting artwork, overseen by an award-winning chef, and staffed by a talented culinary team.
FIRE – Considered an adored component of the hotel’s art, FIRE’s seven menus offer a novel take on American cuisine, blending sumptuous flavors with a farm-to-table philosophy. Set on the hotel’s roof and enclosed by floor-to-ceiling windows, the restaurant is striking, and the ambiance, lively and warm.
FIRE Lounge – Visit FIRE Lounge for an extraordinarily well-crafted after-dinner cocktail. One of the city’s premier social hot spots, this bar hosts live music while expert mixologists shake up new American interpretations of classic drinks.
FIRE Terrace – Step onto FIRE Terrace during the day for a bird’s-eye view of Denver in the sunshine or wait until evening to see the city in lights. Enjoy the warmth from nearby fire pits as you order a light bite or a properly mixed drink. Chic armchairs and strings of bistro lights add to the stylish ambiance of the hotel’s crown jewel.
The Living Room – As the hotel’s lounge bar, The Living Room is ideal for socializing or networking. Order a cocktail or a light dish and enjoy the plush seating and surrounding art pieces, including Deborah Butterfield’s seven-foot-tall bronze horse.
Private Dining – Dine with a 180-degree view of the city and the mountains in the Bear Den Room, the hotel’s most elegant private dining space. Adorned with playful bear-themed artworks by Sean Landers, it seats up to 22 guests under a unique pin-lit ceiling. For a smaller affair, set up a private meal in the Bottoms Up Room, with seating for six against utilitarian and deconstructivist art pieces.
This unforgettable hotel houses a number of art galleries, including the lobby’s Welcome Gallery — home to Kiki Smith’s arresting bronze "Singer" and John Baldessari’s colorful "Eight Soups" — and the Portico Gallery, which includes works by Frank Gehry and Tracey Emin. You can also expand your knowledge of Denver’s vibrant art scene with the hotel’s complimentary guided art tour. When not admiring art, keep fit at the 2,000-square-foot Art of Motion fitness center, featuring state-of-the-art cardio and strength training equipment.
The city is home to the Denver Art Museum, a six-minute walk from the hotel, while the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver is a pleasant 30-minute stroll away. Start your day with a visit to the picturesque Denver Botanic Gardens before wandering to the Clyfford Still Museum to view striking large-scale paintings by the eponymous abstract expressionist. Alternatively, head to the lively 16th Street Mall or Cherry Creek Shopping Center for main-street retail, or take your children to the Denver Zoo or the Downtown Aquarium. In the evening, take in a play or a musical at one of Denver’s many theaters.
