Magnolia Hotel Denver started a multi-million-dollar renovation. More standard sized guestrooms will be added to the property, along with a dedicated Presidential Suite and a refreshed look and feel to the guestroom design and décor. Additional back-of-the-house enhancements will also be made.
The hotel is adding 51 standard guestrooms by splitting some of the existing suites. The hotel was originally designed as an extended stay hotel so there are numerous suites with full kitchens and living rooms. The change is to accommodate the shift in the market demand from extended stay.
In addition, one master Presidential Suite will be created on the 12th floor. The two-bedroom suite will be the largest on property with its own distinctive design. The suite will have a hand-crafted wood floor with custom wool rugs, a solid oak dining table that seats 12 with white leather chairs, a fireplace, two full bathrooms, a marble kitchen and views of the surrounding area.
When the renovation is completed, Magnolia Hotel Denver will offer 297 rooms - three new boardroom suites, a Presidential Suite, 196 king guestrooms, 44 rooms with two queen beds and 53 suites, 24 of which have fireplaces.
The renovation is slated for completion in September.
Jim Staicoff of Portland-based Staicoff Design Company is overseeing the new interiors of the property.
Magnolia Hotel Denver is located in what was formerly the American National Bank Building. The property was originally restored to reflect its original appearance with terra cotta details and a replicated corner clock adorns this 13-story landmark edifice built in 1910. The hotel, which opened in 1995, is located in the heart of downtown Denver with access to the Colorado Convention Center, Pepsi Center, Coors Field, shopping and entertainment along the 16th Street Mall, as well as other local attractions and businesses.
Magnolia Hotel Denver is managed by Stout Street Hospitality.
