The 110-room, eight-story, 42,000-square-foot tower is a Renaissance Revival, clad in glazed red brick and white terra cotta, with coffered plaster ceilings, overhanging parapet and galvanized metal cornice. Interior marble from Tennessee, Vermont and Arizona complement Pike’s Peak granite in the façade of this streetcar headquarters, once scarred with bullet holes during the 1920 Tramway Strike. Additionally, onyx chandeliers adorn the ceilings, and an eight-story, restored brass mail chute adds vintage charm through the property.

Hotel Teatro recently received a new round of renovations in Summer 2014, led by Colorado-based interior design firm Studio Frank. With the renovations came The Study, the new contemporary-yet-rustic lobby area of the hotel, as well as the Barista Bar, which offers coffee from local vendor, Method Roasters. At this time, the property also welcomed The Nickel, a new chef-driven restaurant within Hotel Teatro that focuses on modern Rocky Mountain comfort food while distilling flavors from the best of Colorado.
