The Curtis Hotel in downtown Denver, Colorado is known for its pop culture accommodations. Here you’ll find “hyper-themed” rooms based on video games, sports, Barbie, chick flicks, Star Trek, disco, talk shows and more. This weekend, the hotel is celebrating the opening of Ghostbusters: Afterlife with an all out hotel celebration.
If you are lucky enough to get reservations for Friday, November 19th, The Curtis is offering a free event which includes a screening of the original Ghostbusters movie, green beverages, slimy green popcorn and a Ghostbusters trivia contest. This is great and all, but the star of the show is a stay in the Ghostbusters Suite.
Found on the hotel’s 13th “scary movie floor,” the Ghostbusters Suite features an over-the-top experience. The crisp, white walls contrast against the “Slimer Green” flooring (which moves under one’s feet), the drapes are printed with repeating Ghostbusters symbols and the Ecto-1 car is featured above the bed. Snacks available include an “ectoplasm” drink and sticky, Slimer green popcorn. In addition, some of the hotel staff have been known to dress up in the iconic jumpsuits from the movies and Vigo the Carpathian (from the second movie) might show up in the bathroom.
