One of Denver’s most famous landmarks is now the home of Renaissance Denver Downtown City Center. The Renaissance opened in May in the former Colorado National Bank building, one of the centerpieces of the “Wall Street of the Rockies.” The hotel has 6,000 square feet of meeting space, which includes 16 restored murals that were created for the bank in 1925 by the famed Allen Tupper True. Fittingly, the bank’s original vaults, which still have their original 33-inch thick, 60,000-pound safe doors, have been converted into meeting rooms. Guests can learn about the building’s history on an interactive walking tour. The eight-story hotel is in walking distance of Colorado Convention Center and Union Station, as well as attractions like Coors Field (home of the Colorado Rockies), the Pepsi Center and Larimer Square shopping and restaurant district. A restaurant is on-site.
