A Night at The Jacquard

My eyes used to roll when someone would suggest I do a Denver staycation. I couldn’t justify the expense. Not when I could avoid packing a suitcase and still explore the city day and night but be in my own bed come evening. But that was before Denver had hotels, like The Jacquard, that are currently some of the nation’s most talked about either for their stylish designs or top-notch F+B programs.

In 2018 alone, the city expects to close out with 20 new hotels and another 23 projected in 2019. Among 2018’s most notable is Cherry Creek North’s newest luxury hotel, the 201 room Jacquard Hotel & Rooftop, a spot that adds to Marriott International’s portfolio of Autograph Collection Hotels.

The hotel, named after Joseph Marie Jacquard, a French weaver who invented a way to accelerate and simplify the complex task of weaving fabric, is all about style. It was apparent from the moment my husband TJ and I stepped into the sleek lobby on our recent staycation —  colorful artwork, sculptures, and a library carved out behind the check-in desk with stacks of books to cozy up with in front of the fireplace.

One of the hotel’s top features is Narrative, the in-house restaurant led by Chef Paul Nagan, formerly of Range Restaurant in the Renaissance Hotel. Now instead of serving food focused on the American West, he’s dishing up a modern-American fare. One look at the menu and there was no talking me out of the Caesar Salad Deviled Eggs, which were so delicious, I would have happily ordered a second portion for the main course. That said, the Alamosa Striped Bass caught my eye and was equally delicious. It came served over a hearty and flavorful stew of saffron, chorizo, kale, chickpea, and olive.

TJ decided on the Jacq Cheeseburger, topped with pepper jack, crispy onion, and tomato jam. For drinks, it was tough to decide which wine to pair with our dinner — there are one hundred different labels available. The decor of the restaurant: bright and light and finished with white marble is as inviting as the food. The most stand out design element for us was wallpaper that convincingly portrays a bookshelf; the rest kind of blends into the background, leaving the creative culinary concoctions in front of you as the main focus.

Which is exactly as it should be.

We lingered at the restaurant into the evening before retreating to our room, which featured custom linens and bath products as well as curated artwork. The rooms are done up in a relaxing grey color scheme that is easy to chill in, especially with the soft and cozy Ferette robes they have on loan. And on the nightstands, you will find books that you are free to take home with you. It was a touch I appreciated because I wasn’t able to read past the title before I fell fast asleep.

Come morning, TJ had to pull me from the luxe linens. I was only half kidding when I told TJ to book another night. At the very least, we plan on being back once the hotel’s rooftop bar, Kisbee on the Roof, opens. It is set up against a spectacular 75-foot long swimming pool with sweeping views across the city that is guaranteed to take Cherry Creek nightlife to another level: the pool can be topped with a cover and turned into a dance floor.
