Our Hotel

Welcome to one of the newest luxury hotel in Denver, CO, the ART, a hotel where your stay will be the perfect blend of refined comfort and intimate service. With contemporary design, high tech amenities and works of art that grace two galleries, spill into the hallways and adorn our every guest room, we are pleased to offer you a highly experiential stay.

The lobby transformed. A grand entrance, indeed. Be welcomed by Leo Villareal’s undulating, 22,000-light art installation—and by a thoughtful valet. Then, step inside the Portico Gallery to relax, converse and wonder at pieces gathered by longtime Denver Art Museum curator Dianne Vanderlip. Speaking of curated, so will be your every experience at the ART, from fine cuisine and contemporary accommodations to masterfully personalized service.

The standard check-in gets an upgrade. Next, you’ll head upstairs to the Welcome Gallery for a seamless and personalized check-in—and to check out additional works by Ed Ruscha, Nancy Rubins, Deborah Butterfield and Kiki Smith. Here, you can soak up city views on the expansive terrace, as well as the ART’s sophisticated, yet relaxed atmosphere. Intimate and authentic. A refined palette of memory-making moments customized to each guest—whether on business or pleasure.

A refined palette indeed. Modern presentation. Classic technique. Refined flavors conjured from fresh, local ingredients. This is the artistic vision behind FIRE Restaurant, Lounge and Terrace. Mingle with colleagues or meet your special someone for a meal, cocktails or after-dinner drinks on the terrace, gathered around a mesmerizing fire feature. Or gaze at the cityscape and mountains through walls of glass, cozily inside, where intriguing chandeliers and kinetic sculptures are sure to spark conversation. 

Whether you’re looking for a night on the town, a place to escape for vacation retreat or a location for your company’s business program, the ART, a hotel offers the perfect setting to make memories. We are pleased to offer a unique Denver, CO experience for every traveler.
