The
Story

With artworks ranging from an oversized reproduction of the Governor’s Honorary Proclamation of Major League Baseball Day that stands at 8 feet high to paintings and photographs of the Denver landscape, The Rally Hotel tells the story of Denver, Colorado through a mixture of various mediums. The aesthetic approach balances the contemporary with the past to create a visual narrative of the people, brands, activities and places that we were proud to know then and are still with us today. From a jaunt to the mountains to the first pitch, kickoff, or faceoff to an architectural moment experienced while touring Union Station, guests will come to understand just what it is that makes the Mile High City tick.

Each entrance ensures every guest is greeted with warmth and vibrance. A playful 96” x 54” print on aluminum by Daryl Thetford is showcased at one entrance, while the other is lined with a bright three-part panel commission of cowboys by Maura Allen to remind visitors of Denver’s western roots. Laser-cut monotypes, oil and acrylic paintings, watercolor and ink artworks, photographs and more are scattered carefully throughout the 13 floors. A nine foot tall interactive sculpture installation on the third floor by Peter Yumi features unique rotating blocks, including custom blocks designed with scenes of Denver experiences.

Designated the official hotel of the Colorado Rockies, The Rally features an extensive collection of historic bats, bases and pennants from the inception of the MLB team. The displayed baseball bats are signed by all players at the end of the season, going back to the first team roster in 1993. 

As for the guestrooms, various prints, paintings, and found objects are placed throughout the space to provide a vintage and urban feel. The bathrooms pay homage to the LoDo neighborhood, as well as the city itself with commissions of cityscapes and skylines. NINE dot ARTS and the Rally Hotel created a spirited art program that showcases the pride and joy of Denver, Colorado.

Even the attached diner, The Original, features original artistic elements that connect the hotel’s Americana feel with local flair through a colorful column mural featuring a delicious stack of pancakes by local painter Tom Ward and a feast of traditional diner treats seen in the food motif painting by New York-based illustrator Pauline de Roussy de Sales.
