The JW Marriott Denver Cherry Creek is pleased to announce that is has completed a renovation of its 196 luxurious guest rooms, capping off more than $5 million in upgrades to the 7-year-old Denver hotel, including the commission of more than 600 works of art by Colorado artists.

Created by renowned designer David Ashen – who calls the look “naturally refined” - the JW Marriott Denver’s guest rooms showcase the idea of an updated Denver Bungalow, a modern twist on the timeless Craftsman design found throughout Denver. The color palate features dark blues, with hints of magenta and orange for a contemporary vibe. New carpet in the public corridors features the Colorado state flower - the Columbine - in an abstract design.

“We tried to capture the urban sophistication of Cherry Creek while also playing up the unique relationship that Denver has with the outdoors,” said Ashen. “I think we created a really calming and polished environment."

Each of the JW Marriott Denver’s 196 guest rooms, which all feature exquisite four-piece marble bathrooms, as well as the hotel’s 8,400 square feet of meeting space and the Concierge Guest Lounge, feature new furniture, carpet, wall coverings and accessories. Other recent property enhancements include a new state-of-the-art Fitness Center and upgrades to the hotel’s Business Center.

The JW Marriott Denver also now features more than 600 pieces of original art created by local Colorado artists, including photographer Mark Sink, mixed media artist Sabin Aell, painter Ian Fisher, sculptor Tsehai Johnson and sculptor Pard Morrison. The works were curated by respected art advisor Paige Powell, former associate publisher of Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine. Powell has curated shows for Jean-Michel Basquiat and Julia Galan and contributes to Paper Magazine.

To help celebrate the new works featured throughout the hotel and Cherry Creek North’s vibrant arts scene, the JW Marriott Denver has created the Embrace Cherry Creek Arts package, which includes a $50 Cherry Creek North gift card that can be used at any neighborhood gallery or to create your own work of art at the nearby Canvas & Cocktails studio.
