How Warwick Denver's Playboy connection inspired the property's renovation

The Warwick Denver has completed the renovation of all its 216 guestrooms and suites.

The hotel was originally built as the Governor’s Court and used to be the first and only Playboy Club in Colorado. In a nod to its history, the interior design was inspired by the Playboy connection with references found through guestroom artwork.

Every room was reconfigured and now has Wi-Fi connection and multiple power points for charging electronic devices. Averaging more than 425 square feet, the rooms use natural textures, and reflect the rustic characteristics of the Rocky Mountains and the state of Colorado. In addition, each room or suite has an outdoor balcony (measuring 120 square feet), overlooking the downtown skyline or the Denver cityscape.
