Recap: The Source Hotel Hard Hat Tour

On Tuesday, September 12, 2017 and Tuesday, September 26, 2017, we toured The Source Hotel.

The Source Hotel is a culinary complex and lifestyle hotel in the heart of Denver’s vibrant RiNo Art District. It expands on the nationally recognized The Source market hall, a collection of top food and beverage artisans set in an 1880s iron foundry.

In partnership with the group behind Boulder’s acclaimed St Julien Hotel, the 100-room, eight-story tower is The Source’s modern counterpoint, with rooms characterized by natural light, fresh air and views of the Colorado mountains and downtown Denver skyline. Guest rooms showcase a design-forward yet timeless aesthetic featuring comfy beds and minibars stocked by market hall vendors. High ceilings, expansive windows, and operable glass garage doors flood the spaces with natural light. Custom Baltic birch casework and small touches like vintage cookbooks complement sweeping city and mountain views.

Two market halls totaling 45,000 square feet make up the foundation of The Source Hotel’s culinary complex, with a collection of 25 artisans including a bakery, taqueria, modern wood-fired restaurant, barber, art gallery, kitchen goods shop, and barbecue. The eighth-floor terrace features The Woods – an indoor/outdoor rooftop restaurant, a pool, and a beer garden showcasing New Belgium’s brews with panoramic views of the mountains and downtown.

The experience begins at check-in, where guests are greeted with a New Belgium beer and a first-hand glimpse into the brewing process at the brand’s first Denver production brewery, which sits just off the lobby. Other amenities include a 2,300-square-foot modern event space with floor-to-ceiling windows, a fitness center, and an on-site parking garage. – Description and rendering courtesy of Zeppelin Development
