In early 2017, the Courtyard by Marriott Denver Downtown will begin remodeling; it is expected to finish in early April. The multimillion-dollar revamp will include updates to the lobby and meeting spaces. The design will have a modern vintage feel while staying true to the rich history of the building, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Denver’s Design Force Corporation will be responsible for the design, with help from Denver art consultants NINE dot ARTS assisting on the art selection. The spaces will feature dark wood beams with blue, turquoise and yellow color accents.

“Our hotel has been offering guests a superior downtown lodging experience for nearly 20 years,” says Jason Mueller, general manager. “This remodel embraces our past while helping us remain relevant to today’s traveler.”

The 177-room hotel, managed by Sage Hospitality, offers 3,200 square feet of meeting space, with seven venues that can hold up to 250 guests. Other amenities include free Wi-Fi, a business center, valet parking and a fitness center.

BIG Wall Décor challenges the notion that owning large, beautiful artwork is only for the wealthy art connoisseur. With more than 20 years of experience printing for luxury brands, the BIG Wall Décor team uncovered a new print/framing solution that makes it easy and affordable (pieces start at $125) to display large-scale, on-trend artwork in trade show booths, at events, in the office, and at home.
