Ornament Amplifies the Guest Experience

Project Location

Fort Collins, CO






Interiors, experiential programming

Situated at the base of the Rocky Mountains, The Elizabeth Hotel, Autograph Collection evokes a light and airy ambiance, accentuated with handcrafted details in furnishings and moldings, juxtaposed by raw and aged wood. With the owner’s philanthropic commitment to arts and music, the design approach embraces and sets a stage for the arts.

We used an abundance of neutral tones in painted moldings, unapologetic filigree, and rich ornamentation on walls, amplified when their shadows further reveal their depth in the daylight. The experience of music resonates throughout the property, hearing and feeling the physical vibrations of the drum or guitar at their core.

A Music Lovers Dream

Keeping with this focus on local culture and heritage, the hotel offers three Fort Collins-inspired signature suites – the Music Suite, the Beer and Bike Suite, and the Ram Suite. Between a vibrant immersion into musical influences, a spirited homage to Fort Collins’ local flavor, or a tribute that conjures up the excitement of Aggie history, guests find themselves in a refreshing place to enjoy pure Northern Colorado hotel luxury.


Guests can choose their delight between three food and beverage destinations within The Elizabeth Hotel: a quick service shop featuring local coffee blends, a locally-sourced kitchen and wine market with unique roots, or a bar and event venue presenting live music nightly.
