Curtis Hotel, Denver, Colorado

OU EDI will be held at the Curtis Hotel in downtown Denver!

The Curtis is an experience. We’re right across the street from the 16th Street Mall, Denver’s best shopping, entertainment and attractions just steps away. Step inside our doors, and you’ll find cartoons playing in our retro-chic lobby, an impressive art collection with works by local and nationally renowned artists, and a 5 and Dime filled with treats from the past.  At The Curtis, we think there’s always time for a little fun - a game of Candyland in the lobby, martinis in The Corner Office + Martini Bar, or host a stylish soiree with 28,000 square feet of innovative event space (whimsical touches included).  The Curtis features 13 pop-themed floors of guest rooms and suites.  Explore this fun, funky, and super comfy hotel!
