Design Force Corporation refreshes Courtyard by Marriott Denver Downtown with ‘modern vintage’ feel

The hotel will feature several pieces of Colorado art curated by Denver art consultants NINE dot ARTS.

The Courtyard by Marriott Denver Downtown is kicking off off 2017 with a renovation designed to give the hotel’s lobby and meetings spaces a “modern vintage” feel. The renovation is starting this month and is expected to last until early April.

The update will honor the hotel’s architectural history. The building was originally designed by Denver-based architect Frank E. Edbrooke in 1887 and was home to Joslins Department Store for much of the 1900s. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the historic building will also get new exterior awnings.

The updated lobby and event spaces will have a contemporary design, with dark wood beams accented with pops of bright blue, turquoise and yellow, designed by Denver’s Design Force Corporation. There will also be several pieces of Colorado artwork curated by Denver art consultants NINE dot ARTS.
