Denver’s Curtis – a Doubletree by Hilton completes $7M renovation

Denver’s only pop culture hotel, the Curtis - a Doubletree by Hilton, completed a $7-million property renovation that included upgrades to all 336 guestrooms and a lobby expansion.

The hotel also created “hyper themed” suites on each of its 13 themed guest floors, including custom art by Colorado artists, unique flooring and decorations.

The 8th “Sci-Fi” floor has the Star Trek Enterprise room, with futuristic flooring, Lucite furniture and cast photos. The 13th "Dun Dun Dunnnnn!" floor has “Ghostbusters” elements, such as lime green "Slimer" floor tiles and a ghostly three-day art illusion. The 15th floor “Mad About Music” has the new Jimmy Buffett room, which has ocean blue floor tiles and a giant Margaritaville mural highlighting top hits like "Five O'clock Somewhere." Meanwhile, the 16th floor "Pedal to the Medal" has custom movie wall art and over-the-top NASCAR trinkets in the Talladega Nights Suite.

The Curtis also added two new one-bedroom suites to complement its existing Rolling Stone Suite: the KISS Suite, named after American rock band; and the Spice Girls Suite, dedicated to Britain’s girl band. Each suite is 800 square feet and includes a separate living room and master bedroom, and is decked out with rock star furniture and art.

Each of the Curtis guest rooms underwent transformation, and now includes new furniture, custom artwork, carpeting, drapery and Sweet Dreams by DoubleTree bedding. Each guestroom now has a refrigerator and a safe.

The Curtis lobby was also expanded and renovated to create a larger and brighter welcome to the hotel. The space now inclues complimentary coffee service for guests, and a business center.

Last year, the Curtis unveiled the new Four Square Ballroom, a 7,000 square feet indoor/outdoor space that included a large retractable nano glass wall and an outdoor patio complete with a private bar and a fireplace.

Managed by Denver’s Sage Hospitality, the Curtis is a member of Hilton HHonors guest rewards program. The hotel also has a fitness center, the Oceanaire Seafood Room and The Corner Office Restaurant + Martini Bar, a Sage Restaurant Group concept by restaurateur Peter Karpinski.
