Ramble Hotel Final Update

If we were to say that the Ramble Hotel is a great adaptive reuse project that converted an old building into a beautiful hotel, it wouldn’t be a stretch to the imagination to see that it could possibly be true. However, the 50-room Ramble Hotel is actually brand new construction. It looks like it has been in the area for decades, blends in with its surroundings, while replacing a couple underutilized single story buildings.

DenverInfill has stopped by a few times to cover this project. Make sure to check our post history to follow it from announcement to present day.

The Ramble Hotel features a striking red brick facade with dark metal accents. The building recalls an early 20th century industrial style with intricate metal and brick detailing, along with steel windows.

The brick facade continues around the building towards the alley however, there is a blank wall facing the open lot behind the building. This will eventually be covered up by a future development.

When the sun starts to go down, uplighting on the Ramble Hotel becomes visible. This subtle feature makes a large impact, especially on a heavy retail corridor like Larimer Street in River North.

This fantastic looking project is now open for both hotel guests and visitors to Death & Company, the hotel’s cocktail bar and restaurant. Welcome to Downtown Denver and River North, Ramble Hotel!

    So many of the efforts to match historical looks are miserable fails, with the brick and other materials chosen looking not at all “historical” or appropriate to the surrounding neighborhood. This is a huge exception.

    The building is gorgeous – I love the brick chosen and the other industrial design features. I’m not sure if the success here is just from great design or the fact that very high quality (and presumably, expensive) materials were used. But what a great looking development!

    Kudos to all involved!

    Wow! Now this is a nice building. Nice scale, nice materials. It all works well.

    When I first saw renderings for this one, believe it or not, I was most worried about the window trim. The design looked solid but so often with these neoclassical designs (I’m not 100% sure “neoclassical” is even the right word but I’m just going to go with it), the end result ends up looking a bit off because of some cheap, vinyl – sometimes even white – window trim. These windows look great. The whole thing looks great (let’s hope that blank wall gets covered up soon). I’m pleasantly surprised. Gravatas/Strohe did a great job.
