The Del Marcos Hotel was designed by William F. Cody and built in 1947. It was recently renovated right before I visited during Modernism Week 2012. The afternoon at the open house was relaxed and fun. While taking pictures I ran into a new friend from Denver Modernism. I had no idea the have a Modernism Show next August, with a pageant for Miss Modernism! The atmosphere they provide might reflect the easy going era in which it was created. The shuffleboard court and acoustic guitar hanging in the lobby of the Del Marcos add an interactive way for guests to enjoy today’s world in a reflection of the mid-century youth designed in the 1950’s.
