LOCATION: Situated in Denver’s Golden Triangle Museum District at 1201 Broadway, the ART Hotel is only steps away from the Denver Art Museum and History Colorado Center and in close proximity to Denver Performing Arts Center, Lower Downtown Denver (LoDo) and Santa Fe Art Gallery District.

OVERVIEW: The property is being billed as a contemporary hotel rooted in an urban art gallery. Guest rooms have been curated with artwork from each floor’s designated artist, with décor playing off the artist’s color-scheme and tone. The ART Hotel is part of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, a global collection of independent luxury hotels.

THE ART
The collection is a who’s who of modern art, including Claus Oldenberg, Tracey Emin, Sol LeWitt and more. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by a large-scale light installation by Leo Villareal that draws the eye from Broadway into the hotel’s Portico Gallery. From the Portico Gallery, an elevator takes guests to the fourth-floor Welcome Gallery with masterpieces by notable art- ists like Ed Ruscha and Deborah Butterfield. Forget boring elevator rides, avant-garde video art keeps it interesting. The hotel’s restaurant, FIRE, features works by Joel Otterson and Allan Houser. Contemporary works in meeting spaces also are sure to inspire creativity. Dining: FIRE exudes creativity through innovative cuisine and libations and avant- garde design, including a lounge, dining room and two private dining spaces. The menus honor classical techniques and utilize locally grown and sustainably raised foods. Floor-to-ceiling window panels disappear in summer to connect the Welcome Gallery and the rooftop FIRE lounge and terrace.

The key to maximizing success (and limiting risk) is for marketers to better understand how their audiovisual team works. 

It is almost event day. You are excited, but you are also stressed.

You have spent the last few months preparing for your live stream: that big product launch, quarterly Town Hall, or video conference that your boss needs to go well. Your marketing and communications teams have been working hard, and everything appears ready.
