The soon-to-open Thompson Denver teams up with Victrola, a Denver-based manufacturer of turntables for more than 100 years, to offer exciting musical experiences for hotel guests, including a one-of-kind, refined listening lounge on the hotel’s sixth floor.


“We are thrilled to team up with Victrola, an iconic, locally based brand, to extend such a unique amenity to our guests,” said Amanda Parsons, area vice president and general manager, Thompson Denver. “Music not only plays a key role within the Thompson Hotels brand, but it has helped shaped Denver’s identity and we wanted to honor that distinction for our guests who seek to be in the center of innovation and culture.”


Thompson Denver will feature five different record players and one Bluetooth-enabled radio at the property, with each offering a distinct listening experience. The Linden Wood Bluetooth Radio, in guestrooms and suites, will allow guests to sync smart devices. In 12 Skyline Studios and Executive Suites, guests will find V1 Stereo Turntables, which seamlessly stream music and serve as a television soundbar. The V1 Turntable Music System, pairing a V1 turntable with a wireless subwoofer, will be in Mile High Suites. The 1,032-square-foot Thompson Suite will boast the T1 Turntable System, known for its meticulous attention to sound, design and ease.


“Our collaboration with Thompson Denver creates a special opportunity for guests to make lifelong music memories in their home away from home,” said Scott Hagen, CEO, Victrola. “Not only will travelers and locals enjoy iconic and timeless records throughout the property, but we truly look forward to working with the Thompson Denver team to create unique experiences beyond our players that will keep visitors coming back to the property and the city of Denver.”


On the sixth floor, the communal Victrola Listening Lounge, adjacent to the hotel’s Reynard Social cocktail lounge, will boast an edgy selection of vinyl for all types of music fans. Guests will be able to check out the Revolution GO, Victrola’s portable and rechargeable record players.
