Fusing together the crisp feel of the Rocky Mountains with a classic French flair, Le Méridien has captured the best of both worlds with its new property in Denver, the first for the brand in Colorado. 

Filled with mid-century touches and nods to French mountain chalets, the hotel is a stylish mixture of clean lines, eye-catching millwork that references the design of snowboards and skis, and vibrant graphics inspired by the stock patterns and textures of ski and alpine wear. 

From the spacious, light-filled rooms, which have been realised in a cool palette of whites and greys, to the inviting shared spaces that combine warm wood panels, shaggy fur accents and a fireplace or two, the property, designed by Chicago-based firm Simeone Deary Design Group, has both the bases and details covered.

In addition, the hotel not only boasts a substantial art collection, created by local artists, a partnership with the Clyfford Still Museum also awards guests complimentary entry by simply presenting the hotel key card.

For sustenance, the hotel’s all-day eatery Corrinne offers delicious comfort food in a cosy setting. In the lobby, The Lobbyist starts off as a coffee bar and transforms into a chic bar at night. However, both guests and locals are most likely to head to its seasonal, open air rooftop bar, 54Thirty. Located some 5,430 feet above sea level, it delivers the perfect finishing touch.
