Denver hotels offer a good night’s rest, and then some
DENVER, Colorado – Whether you are looking for a good night’s rest in Denver, or just a fun evening out at a hip restaurant or bar, Denver hotels have what you are looking for.
Conventioneers and business travelers will have plenty of hotels to choose from in downtown Denver. The Hyatt Regency and Marriott City Center are some of the newer hotels, while the Brown Palace Hotel and the Oxford Hotel offer historic charm as well. Denver’s most luxurious and elegant hotels are sprinkled throughout the city’s historic districts. Rooms at any downtown hotel are within walking distance of the Colorado Convention Center and many wonderful restaurants and sights. You can take in a theater show and do a little shopping without ever driving.
Also in downtown Denver, hotels like the Monaco and the Magnolia that offer mid-range prices have made wonderful use of historic buildings, as have bed and breakfasts in Capitol Hill and City Park where spectacularly restored mansions now offer regal and comfortable rooms for romantic getaways or business travel.
Beyond the core neighborhoods of the city, there are plenty of airport hotels and a couple of intriguing inns, such as Table Mountain Inn in Golden, a small town in the foothills west of Denver.
When Denver International Airport opened on the plains northeast of the city in the 1990s, the nearest hotels were still located near the old Stapleton Airport a few miles east of downtown. Stapleton is now a large infill community and the hotels managed to survive. Now travelers in the vicinity of both Stapleton and Denver International Airport have a selection of brand new or refurbished hotels-most with free shuttle service to the airport as well.
There are few budget hotel options in downtown, other than hostels, such as the Innkeeper of the Rockies or the Melbourne Hotel and International Hostel. Insider’s tip: Go to www.denver.org to find out about any $52.80 deals currently being offered at area hotels. These are typically on sale during slower winter months.
Even if you’re not checking in, many of Denver’s hotels are destinations themselves for an evening out. Stop by the Cruise Room in the Oxford Hotel for a cocktail, go up to the Peaks Lounge in the Hyatt Regency for a breathtaking view of the Rockies or dine at Restaurant Kevin Taylor in the Hotel Teatro before going next door to enjoy a night at the theater. The Brown Palace Hotel has three restaurants to choose from, a cigar bar and a stunning atrium where cocktail hour includes live music.
