The Story

The Elizabeth Hotel in Fort Collins celebrates the city’s fun-loving, often off-beat personality, as well as it’s adventurous spirit. Featuring talented local and regional artists, many of whom studied at Colorado State University (CSU), the art collection explores themes of both music and nature. With amenities like a Music Lending Library and in-room record players, we were inspired to curate an art collection which integrates music via subject matter, materials, mood, harmony and rhythm. As a city known for outdoor recreation and appreciation, the art collection pays tribute to Fort Collins by incorporating references to the surrounding landscape throughout the hotel. The three signature suites host three separate themes: Beer & Bikes, The Ram, and Music in a myriad of ways through a mixture of fine art and unusual found objects. The Elizabeth proudly hosts a series of activations for the enjoyment of their guests, working with artists and performers to continue to enhance the guest experience and create immersive environments and atmospheres for all to enjoy.

Our ability to create authentic experiences for our guests is a key differentiator against our competition, and the art program that NINE dot ARTS created is a prime example.
