Catbird is an independent hotel in RiNo that blurs the line between hotel and home. The hotel creates adaptable spaces that foster a deeper sense of belonging for our guests and community. More than a mash-up of periods and styles, this hotel creates all the feelings that travel should provide. Catbird will be 165-rooms with hybrid furniture providing massive functionality in a small amount of space. The lobby will feature comfortable spaces, grab-and-go food options, and flexibility between work-flow and life-balance that experiential travelers seek out. Guest rooms will feature full kitchens with functional housewares, unique storage, and multi-functional furniture where small spaces realize their larger potential.
Paying homage to the history of the neighborhood around it, Catbird encompasses a 3,600 square foot, four-bedroom historic home, originally built in 1890, which has been preserved as part of the hotel. Amenities include a “playroom” stocked with bikes, skateboards, scooters, cameras and other items, package delivery lockers, a guest storage area where repeat guests can leave often-used items, and a dog run for man’s best friend.
The rooftop at Catbird will feature a stunning indoor bar and an inviting outdoor deck with lounge seating and firepits, perfect for enjoying unobstructed views of the Denver skyline with friends and colleagues. The rooftop will also be home to an additional 3,300 square foot deck that will be dedicated to hosting corporate and social events. Guests will be sure to enjoy the two jacuzzi tubs and a beautiful area of green grass up on the roof, created for outdoor activation in the Denver sunshine.
