There’s A Room For Any Design Style At These 3 Colorado Hotels

Clayton Members Club & Hotel

With the spring debut of the Clayton Members Club & Hotel, the Cherry Creek North district got not just three new restaurants and a 63-room boutique hotel, but also a first-of-its-kind members club with unique events, amenities—and two restaurants—of its own. For overnight guests, design firm AvroKO created rooms, studios, suites and a multilevel penthouse that nod to both Denver modernism with clean-lined, low-slung furnishings, and Colorado’s unique geological features and mining history with carpets, striated stone finishes and custom light fixtures rich in texture and sparkle.


Public House Lofts

Ever since the 2011 debut of Eleven Experience’s flagship property, the Scarp Ridge Lodge—a Wild West saloon turned ultra-luxe lodge in the heart of Crested Butte—the Colorado-based adventure-travel specialist has earned a reputation for pairing historic buildings with of-the-moment amenities and experiences. The Public House Lofts, located just a few blocks away, follow suit with three cozy suites set above a pub and underground tap room in an original 1800s saloon. In these cozy accommodations, designed by architect Daniel J. Murphy and No.12 Interiors, rustic wood ceiling beams, locally forged ironwork and period-inspired finishes—from Belgian bluestone bathroom floors to cast-iron tubs—mingle with vintage concert posters, Moroccan rugs, and furnishings sourced from antiques shops in Aspen and Carbondale, while the rich textures of ceramics, leather, wool and suede offer warm reminders of the property’s high-country locale.


Rally Hotel

When imagining the interiors for the Rally Hotel, a 182-room property at the heart of the Colorado Rockies’ new McGregor Square complex, design firm Icrave did “a deep dive into all aspects of baseball,” says principal Jesse MacDougall. The hotel’s reception desk is made from lathed wood elements that reference bats, and top-stitched leather wall panels nod to the laces on a baseball. Guest rooms offer more connections to the narrative, with leather headboards and banquettes inspired by baseball gloves, perforated minibar and wardrobe doors that mimic metal lockers, and plaid carpets and mismatched-denim chairs—subtle details the designers noticed while watching old baseball movies.
