DENVER – March 2018 – 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. The hotel’s historic, 1400 sq. ft. Chancellor’s Suite received similar updates, in addition to new sofas and a custom conference table; the new furnishings complement historic original details within the suite, such as wood-paneled walls and a limestone fireplace.
Lightly used furniture from the previous guest room design were donated to Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit organization that brings people together to build and furnish homes for those in need.
“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.
