14 Jan Hospitality Update: 2020
OLC has been in the hospitality business for over 25 years. Interior Design is one of the three pillars of our firm and we have a group of talented professionals working around the clock to deliver hotels and resorts, of every size and service level, that bring beauty and function to their guests. Whether it is a local boutique or an international resort, our designers strive to capture the essences of harmony, balance, and tranquility in every part of the building, from the lobby to the guest room, to amenities like the spa, the pool or the dining area.
Some of OLC’s recent hospitality projects include:
DoubleTree by Hilton Renovations, Denver, CO
OLC served as the Architect/Interior Design Consultant on this DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Denver. The renovation includes the lobby, lobby bar, restaurant, grab n’go, and banquette space. The design concept embraces the western heritage of Colorado lifestyle with a modern sophisticated twist. The unique environment created by the low-lying meadow with a slow stream, the quake of aspen tree canopies above a soft, flat grassland, fostering a quieting of the soul. This is the guest experience in Knife & Board restaurant. The new Hub Bar, within sight as soon as the guest enters the hotel, offers a rich combination of Colorado; the wild beauty if the west tamed by the civility of the city. While at Grab n’ Go, with a drink in hand, the guest is invited to settle into a private cubby, lounge chair, or chat with others at the communal table or dining tables.
Hot Springs Lodge and Spa Renovations, Glenwood Springs, CO
OLC is currently providing interior design services for the Glenwood Hot Springs Resort renovations. OLC is responsible for the project which includes both the main lobby and downstairs seating area in the Lodge. The Lodge’s downstairs lobby will be transformed into an area for guests to socialize and use the internet. The Athletic Club is also undergoing a lobby remodel and will incorporate the history of the facility.
“These Club and Lodge remodel projects are just the start of a multi-year plan designed to update our existing guest areas to improve comfort and style,” Chief Operations Officer and Vice President of Glenwood Hot Springs John Bosco said. “The design will complement the coming additions to the Glenwood Hot Springs Resort experience in the next four or five years.”

DoubleTree by Hilton Renovations, Stapleton North, Denver, CO
OLC was contracted to create a new holistic, regionally influenced, guest tower design, while adhering to strict Hilton design standards. In order to create a room renovation which holistically blends the existing public space décor with a new updated décor, the design incorporates warm woods, Colorado colors of the red rock, wheat fields and mineral grays, with more urban accents of brushed nickel and clean architectural lines to reflect the Stapleton lifestyle.
DoubleTree by Hilton Tower Renovation, Denver, CO
The new guestroom towers of the Double Tree by Hilton, Denver will reflect the vibrant, yet serene spirit of Denver, Colorado. Natural colors and textures will be combined with authentic materials and timeless forms to create guestrooms that welcome relaxation. A hit of surprising, yet subtle details spark an enchanting space for guests to enjoy. In coordination with the new lobby, lobby bar, dining and grab n go finished in May 2018, the guest tower will be a sensory delight of classic designs paired with modern twists. The design concept combines the color palette of nature, rich textures and modern, sophisticated accents. The guest tower experience starts in the elevator lobby as the doors open to flooring of wood look tile, carpet patterned with abstract leaves, and walls covered with rich bronze and silver wall covering, accented with dimensional black substrate to offset the striking wall sculpture. This experience follows the guest to their guestroom. The serenity of the palette is achieved through artwork representative of the nature in various artist mediums including watercolor and cast metal and wood.
Sheraton Denver West Renovation, Denver, CO
You never get a second chance at making a first impression. While the inside of the hotel is fresh and up to date, the building itself which was constructed in 1982 was badly in need of a face lift. The design team took cues from colors and materials from the hotel public spaces and brought them out to the buildings edge. A new entry vestibule with its slow curved front and clean lines speaks to the future with a dash of glitz. The granite stone pavers provide a sleek sense of arrival from your first step out of the car. The last bit of sparkle comes from new decorative strip sconces on the stone feature wall and pendants that are reminiscent of sleek large blade ceiling fans. First impressions are important, and this one will be remembered by every guest for years to come.
