Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has opened Kimpton Hotel Born Denver.
Located at the end of the Union Station platform and in the heart of one of the most dynamic urban districts in the United States, every detail of Hotel Born — from Bavarian-inspired materials to exposed concrete ceilings, from floor-to-ceiling windows to 700 original works by local Denver artists — has been crafted to impart an elevated, urban vibe that is uniquely Colorado, according to the company.
Developed by Continuum Partners, the co-master developers of the Union Station Transit Station, and designed by Denver-based Semple Brown in collaboration with Ellen Bruss of Ellen Bruss Design, Hotel Born has an Alpine modern design. Design elements include a balance of wood, concrete and metal.
The exterior of the building reflects the brick masonry of the area’s original historic warehouses. The lobby has knotty pine paneling, custom millwork, and walnut herringbone floors combined with board-formed concrete. Hand-woven rugs, textured materials, warm lighting and unique one-off custom furniture pieces are also included.
Hotel Born’s 200 guestrooms—40 of which are suites, including two premier suites with separate living rooms, six-top dining tables, wet bars and free-standing soaking tubs—feature dark brown and gold herringbone patterned carpet and a mix of traditional and modern furniture offset by fresh white walls. The most dramatic feature of the guest rooms are the knotty pine headboards which fold into a ceiling canopy. Each room features large floor-to-ceiling windows.
