Set to open doors in winter 2017, the Ramble Hotel is a design-forward, 50-room boutique hotel that will be situated in Denver’s RiNo neighborhood. The hotel features an theater and bar; flexible meeting space; a small retail outlet; an outdoor courtyard; an independently owned restaurant; and a marquee lobby bar—Death & Co. Denver.

The bar is the first location of the popular bar outside its New York City headquarters, which opened in 2006; they’ve won several awards in the industry, including America’s Best Cocktail Bar and Best Cocktail Menu at the Tales of the Cocktail convention. Death & Co. also will manage the hotel’s room service program, a coffee bar and a reservation-only private bar.

“We’ve long thought about growing Death & Co., but have been understandably careful to do so,” says David Kaplan, cofounder of Death & Co. “I believe the Death & Co. DNA can be expanded to a host of different spaces and experiences, and with Death & Co., at The Ramble we’ll be able to show that.”

The hotel will be one of the first to open in the RiNo neighborhood. Denver-based firm Gravitas Development Group is developing the hotel; the company has been behind many of Denver’s sought-after urban neighborhoods.

“Not only is our most recent development in RiNo, but our office always has been as well,” says Ryan Diggins, Gravitas Development Group partner. “The neighborhood is fertile ground for artists and creative entrepreneurs, and we hope to create a space where travelers and locals can personally experience the art, authenticity and ambition that make RiNo so great.”

The interior design is headed up by Los Angeles-based Avenue Interior Design. They plan to integrate industrial and elements that can be seen in RiNo neighborhood with soft fabrics that highlight patterns and textures. The Ramble Hotel’s design is inspired from French salons of the 17th century.

“The edifice is designed to engage the passerby, the hotel guest and the restaurant patron,” says Tobias Strohe, partner at JNS. “Evoking an Old World charm and a certain curiosity that allows a moment of pauses and lets the eye wander to intricate masonry and metal detailing.”

The time is right; the stage is set. Groups are ready to meet face to face again, and the four-star luxury hotel MGM Grand Detroit is ready to welcome you back.

According to MPI’s report “Spring 2021 Meetings Outlook,” three-quarters of meeting professionals predict a face-to-face event this calendar year. And that definitely rings true for Lisa Williams, executive director of sales for the hotel.

 

Destination Niagara USA designed its series of 360-degree videos with the purpose of allowing meeting planners to virtually explore meeting and event venues in Niagara Falls, NY. The introductory video, with its footage of scenic spots that include Niagara Falls State Park, Luna Island, Stedman’s Bluff and Cave of the Winds, could do double duty as a meditative app on a stressful day.

 

After a year that kept most explorers close to home, the newly transformed Rand Tower Hotel Minneapolis is ready to whisk guests away on a new adventure. With the completion of a $110 million-dollar transformation, the Jazz Age architectural icon that once housed office space has been reborn as a luxe 270-room boutique hotel.
