4.7 ART Hotel Denver

The ART Hotel, Denver


“The Art, in downtown Denver, is a capital-A Art hotel with a museum pedigree. The hotel’s in-house curator, Dianne Vanderlip, is the former curator of modern and contemporary art at the Denver Art Museum, which is just steps away from the 165-room hotel.”

4.6 Queen Anne B&B Denver

Queen Anne Bed & Breakfast, Denver

The Guardian

“The bedrooms at this eco-minded guesthouse in the city’s Five Points neighbourhood are popping with personality. The four suites incorporate designs by local artists, and the nine smaller rooms may have mural artwork, log-cabin stylings, a private deck or a hot tub.”

4.6 Crawford Hotel Denver

Crawford Hotel, Denver

New York Times

“Opened in 2014 above the main terminal of Denver’s renovated Union Station, the Crawford Hotel is designed to evoke Pullman-era train travel while offering decidedly modern perks like a Tesla courtesy car and complimentary gym access. Each of the 112 soundproofed rooms are unique and some are smaller than others.”

4.4 Hostel Fish Denver

Hostel Fish, Denver

Lonely Planet

“This swanked-out hostel is an oasis for budget travelers. Stylish, modern and squeaky clean, dorms have themes – Aspen, Graffiti, Vintage Biker – and sleep five to 10 people in bunks. Mattresses are thick and duvets plush.”

4.5 Brown Palace Hotel Denver

Brown Palace Hotel, Denver

Lonely Planet

“Standing agape under the stained-glass-crowned atrium, it’s clear why this palace is shortlisted among the country’s elite historic hotels. There’s deco artwork, a four-star spa, imported marble and staff who discreetly float down the halls.”

4.3 Hotel Indigo Denver

Hotel Indigo Downtown, Denver

The Guardian

“Hotel Indigo opened in January 2017 and mixes industrial chic and Scandi minimalism with the friendly vibe Denver is famous for. The hotel’s restaurant, Hearth and Dram, is a destination in its own right.”
