Hospitality Snapshots: The Maven Hotel

Hospitality Snapshots: The Maven Hotel

An immersive experience for both locals and travelers to Denver, JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE designed The Maven Hotel to celebrate the culture and history of its surrounding downtown neighborhood.

Since opening in 2017, The Maven Hotel has been a jewel of the Dairy Block, a micro-district in Downtown Denver just steps away from Coors Field and Denver’s iconic Union Station. The architectural design of the hotel reflects the neighborhood in which it sits – Denver’s Lower Downtown (LoDo) – an area rich with historic, industrial brick buildings, many of which were developed in the late 1800s in response to the railroad, and the manufacturing and transportation of goods along that artery.

The intricately designed Maven Hotel celebrates the creative ethos of LoDo with 400+ pieces of art curated by NINE dot ARTS, that create an immersive experience for travelers and locals alike. Upon entering the lobby, one is immediately greeted by a stunning 500-pound handmade reclaimed-wood-and paint sculpture suspended from the ceiling. Created by Colorado artist Andy Tirado, The Quantifiable and the Ineffable required a moving truck, a forklift and a touch of resourcefulness to be installed.
