Tucked between the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains, Colorado’s capital has a booming cultural scene, a walkable downtown and over 100 breweries. Enjoy Denver on a budget by staying at one of these cheap hotels in handy locations.

La Quinta Inn and Suites by Wyndham Denver Airport DIA

Add a large indoor pool and hot tub, a well-equipped fitness center, a convenience store in the lobby and a complimentary breakfast, and this cheap option just off Pena Boulevard seems a smart choice.

  • The Holiday Chalet

    Forget identikit chain hotels: the Holiday Chalet oozes history and charisma. Built in 1896, the Victorian brick property has three lavish suites and seven snug rooms – but those wanting five-star luxe should book the Albert Suite with its chandelier, velvet drapes, claw-foot bath and Tiffany-designed window. If you can drag yourself away, you’re just steps from the museums, music venues and nightlife of the artsy Capitol Hill district, described by former resident Jack Kerouac in his classic novel On the Road.
