Denver JW Marriott Shows Off “Naturally Refined” New Look

The JW Marriott Denver of Cherry Creek has just completed a renovation of its 196 guest rooms under the direction of renowned designer David Ashen.

The new look of the guest rooms showcases the idea of an updated Denver Bungalow. Ashen, who calls the look “naturally refined,” explains:

“We tried to capture the urban sophistication of Cherry Creek while also playing up the unique relationship that Denver has with the outdoors. I think we created a really calming and polished environment.”

Featuring a modern twist on the timeless Craftsman design found throughout Denver, the color palate features dark blues, with hints of magenta and orange for a contemporary vibe. New carpet in the public corridors features the Colorado state flower - the Columbine - in an abstract design. 

The Denver JW Marriott’s new look also comes with more than 700 pieces of original art by local artists, including sculptor Pard Morrison, sculptor Tsehai Johnson, painter Ian Fisher, mixed media artist Sabin Aell, and photographer Mark Sink.

Paige Powell, former associate publisher of Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine, curated the collection.
