The Art Hotel is pulling out all the stops for the holiday season. While the property’s art collection serves as an amazing backdrop for meetings and events any time of year, creativity also is woven into the seasonal decor, food, and beverage. With the ready-made holiday fun for groups, it’s an ideal time to gather at the downtown Denver hotel located next to the Denver Art Museum.
The property decks the halls and lobby with elaborate Pop art-inspired trees designed by local florist The Perfect Petal. All trees are inspired by the hotel’s art-filled guest experience with masterpieces by notable artists like Ed Ruscha, Deborah Butterfield, Sean Landers, Roy Lichtenstein, and more. This year, a Claes Oldenburg tree has been added to the collection and features accents of yellow, blue, and brown.
Book a gathering in tandem with holiday tastings that are complimentary for guests staying at The Art Hotel, with most running from 3-6 p.m., except for on Dec. 2 when the hot cocoa tasting before downtown’s Parade of Lights is scheduled for 3-7 p.m. On Dec. 1, try George Dickel Rye Whiskey or enjoy Bailey’s S’mores and Almande on Dec. 8 and Ryan Reynolds’ botanical Aviation gin on Dec. 15.
Instead of the usual office dinner and drinks, consider brunch and mimosas as an alternative. Festive holiday brunches are happening at the on-site Fire Restaurant from Dec. 23-Jan. 1, 2024, overing both savory and sweet items. Envision a steak skillet with roasted peppers, onions, potatoes, eggs, and fire aioli with a side of roasted acorn squash crostini with pomegranate seeds, goat cheese, and micro greens. On the sweeter side, enjoy cinnamon French brioche toast stacked with orange zest, cookie crumble, and vanilla whipped cream.
Why go to all the work of lining up all the details of Christmas cheer when ready-made holiday fun is available for groups at Colorado properties like The Art Hotel in Denver, Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Aurora, and The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs.
