In the Colorado National Bank building (1915), the lobby is real showstopper, featuring marble columns and restored murals by legendary artist Allen True. The onetime bank reopened as a hotel in 2014 and deftly blends historic features—vaults are now meeting rooms, the teller counter has been transformed into a bar, and historic photos and documents abound—with contemporary art and decor, and even a bit of colorful whimsy. Sleek rooms include king beds or two queens, and the deluxe rooms have a bit more space. Enen if you are not a guest, drop by for a drink or meal at the resident “New American West” Range restaurant and then pull out your smartphone for a tour enabled by QR codes throughout the property.
