The Four Seasons Hotel Denver has reopened after a seven-month renovation. The property now has converted guest rooms, suites, and meeting and event rooms. The hotel restaurant Edge also received a new, modern look as part of the expansion.
The design team at Marzipan, the original designers of the Four Seasons Hotel Denver when it opened in 2010, focused on Denver’s architecture, urban geography and social scene as three key elements of the renovation. The nearby mountains and urban energy of Denver are brought about by the superimposition of geometric and organic shapes throughout the property.
“During the renovation, we really wanted to balance the warmth of the existing architectural surfaces with icy grays, midnight blue, and snow-white – mostly cooler tones that spoke to the mountains and the crisp blue Denver skyline,” said Molly Dunn, senior designer at Marzipan. “While the original design of the hotel included darker elements such as earthy, natural woods, these have been organically integrated into the new design and offer a palette and repetition of materials and colors that visually connect all areas.”
The Edge Bar was expanded into three bar areas distributed over the lobby level in order to open up the space. The Corner Bar is right next to the lobby. The original Edge Bar has been opened to give guests more space and offer live music and entertainment. The outside terrace of the original bar has been redesigned. The third Edge Bar is located inside the restaurant and ranges from the new Raw Bar to the Private Dining Rooms.
Three private dining rooms offer additional options for guests looking for a more intimate dining experience. The Butcher’s Block has a custom built butcher’s block dining table for table-top cooking demonstrations and floor-to-ceiling glass walls that showcase the back-of-house team in the kitchen.
The banquet level has also been redesigned with a new, modern look on the 24,000 square meter event area. Each of the ballrooms and private meeting rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows with plenty of natural light and views of downtown Denver.
