Did you know that all the portraits in our lobby are prominent residents of Fort Collins? These beautifully curated paintings highlight individuals from all different backgrounds and industries who have made a difference to this community.
This week’s portrait tribute is dedicated to the legend Ace Gillett. Ace was a passionate businessman involved in many hospitality ventures in Fort Collins in addition to owning and operating The Armstrong Hotel. Ace first opened a coffee shop before taking ownership of the hotel. When the Levinger’s built the speakeasy lounge in the basement of The Armstrong, named after Ace, they knew he would have loved it as it incorporated his ideals of great service, love of music and classic cocktails. Today, Ace Gillett’s continues to bring the retro vibe with classic drinks and nostalgic tunes.
Stay tuned as we dive into the history and mystery behind each of the portraits on our lobby wall. Who will you recognize?
