Rossonian

One of the most important buildings in Denver’s Five Points neighborhood, the Rossonian Hotel opened in 1912 as the Baxter Hotel. Robert Y. Baxter, who owned the Baxter Cigar Company, hired architect George Louis Bettcher to design a hotel on Welton Street at the Five Points intersection. With its triangular shape and Beaux-Arts style, the three-story Baxter Hotel quickly became a neighborhood landmark. In 1929, the hotel was renamed the Rossonian Hotel, and its lounge acquired a reputation as the best jazz club between the Midwest and the West Coast, with performances by jazz greats such as Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald. After the 1960s, as Denver’s African American population left Five Points, the hotel and lounge declined. This landmark 21,000-square-foot building, with an addition built in 1994, has been largely underutilized since the mid-20th century. Palisade Partners’ vision is to restore the Rossonian to its original uses – boutique hotel, restaurant and music venue, respecting the rich history of the neighborhood while being inclusive of the existing Five Points community.
