The outdoorsy, family friendly and generally wholesome aspect of Denver city makes it a perfect place for a vacationing retreat. Whether you're hitting up the Mile High city for a hiking holiday, a family trip or a weekend of LoDo partying, you're going to want somewhere comfy to rest your head at the end of the day. Some happy-go-lucky travellers are happy with a serviceable and centrally located apartment, but for those vacationers who plan to spend a little more time in - and money on - their hotel, Denver city boasts some seriously luxurious hotels ideally located to allow you to best experience all the city has to offer. The following are the five very best of Denver's luxury hotels.
One of Denver's most well-preserved buildings and most stunning hotels, the more than a century old Brown Palace lives up to its name as a truly palatial downtown mansion. The architecture here makes the hotel worth a visit even if you're not prepared to pay the steep price to stay in one of the luxurious rooms (for those interested in taking a peek, guided tours are available). Spiral staircases, high cathedral ceilings and rich, dark wood are recurrent features of the decor throughout the hotel, restaurant and bar. Well serviced rooms and world class cuisine bring this hotel from the 19th century into the 21st.
The Mile High City's Four Seasons offering is as luxurious and quintessentially Denver as you'd expect from the ever-tasteful hoteliers. Modern clean lines and muted colors are complemented by wood accents in a nod to Denver's traditionally rustic personality, and the in-house Edge steakhouse will satisfy even the most discerning diners with seasonal produce. An urban resort, Four Seasons Denver allows for a relaxing get away without having to leave the city limits.
In the heart of Lower Downtown Denver, the Oxford Hotel is ideally located for those who like their hip urban ambience with a side of class and luxury. Every part of this charming hotel is uniquely and elegantly styled with attention to detail, maintaining the historic aspect of the building with period pieces and quirky accents. Conscientious staff and accessible amenities make this hotel a perfect and relaxing spot from which to experience the exciting atmosphere of the Lower Downtown district.
The commendable staff, comprehensive amenities and comfort at this hotel are all characteristic of all of the Kimpton hotels, but the Hotel Monaco has a distinctive, imaginative design all its own. The hotel reflects the frivolous, fun and modern aspect of Denver city and it's perfectly placed for all the guests to experience exactly that side of the city right outside the hotel's doors. Small touches like animal print bathrobes in the bedrooms, organic non-alcoholic cocktails and bikes available for hire distinguish Hotel Monaco from the more traditional upmarket hotels.
Fresh, smart and tasteful are the buzzwords for this luxury LoDo accommodation. The Hotel Teatro's beautifully historic facade blends in seamlessly with its atmospheric old town surroundings, and inside guests are greeted by restrained, classic decor which allow the building's period features to speak for themselves. Hotel Teatro perfectly blends historic opulence and urban luxury to make this a trendy but restful place to stay in downtown Denver while staff offer an attentive, tailored service to all guests.
