The Story

A boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Denver, The Curtis Hotel has become sought after by travelers looking for an anything-but-ordinary stay. As a part of the hotel’s recent renovation, we were selected by Sage Hospitality to update The Curtis’s art collection. The new collection had to simultaneously accomplish these goals: support local artists to fulfill Sage’s company-wide mandate; fit within predetermined guestroom themes ranging from Lucy & Desi, Talladega Nights, Talk Shows, Ghostbusters and more; predominantly take the form of massive wall murals and brand the hotel as a one-of-a-kind, pop culture experience for guests. The result is a vibrant destination for pop art and an eclectic, playful experience waiting around every corner of the hotel, even in the parking garage.
