The Born Hotel, which officially opens its doors in late spring, is owned by long-time Denverites (and, coincidentally, the parents of a goop staffer) who recognized the city’s lack of hotels that offered good design. With mountain-inspired interiors that aren’t at all kitschy—think plaid throw pillows; mid-century furniture and light fixtures; and custom millwork for the walls and beds—the Born is a pretty elegant solution. The hotel itself is a block from the restaurants and buzz of Union Station and the city’s recently opened fast-track rail line to the airport, and in the halls, you’ll find artwork from local Denver artists curated by Adam Lerner, the director of nearby MCA Denver. While the hotel is a major win for out-of-towners, locals are most excited about Tavernetta, the first-floor restaurant from Bobby Stuckey and Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson of the beloved Frasca Food & Wine (only their second fine dining restaurant, and their first in Denver).
