The Maven Hotel

McWhinney Foundation
175 Guestrooms
Denver, Colorado
Year Complete


The Maven Hotel expresses an industrial, downtown loft feel reflecting the neighborhood in which it sits – Denver’s Lower Downtown (LoDo) – an area rich with historic, industrial brick buildings, many of which have been lovingly restored for a modern tenant. The stylish, simple design celebrates craftsmanship and the spirt of the maker – themes that resonate strongly with Denver’s history and its people.


The interior design of the guest room levels by JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE is similarly inspired and designed with a loft-like feel, infused with urban style and industrial spirit. The fox is the inspiration for the spirit of the hotel and makes appearances throughout the design.

Public spaces in collaboration with Crème Design.
