Dynamic Denver has all the nightlife, big-name shopping and top museums of America’s better-known cities, but also 250 city parks and 14,000 acres (5,666ha) of spectacular mountain parks right on its doorstep. Dubbed the Mile High City due to its elevation above sea level, Colorado’s capital is home to artsy districts, foodie hubs and an attraction-packed downtown. You can explore it all from the city’s chic luxury hotels, where rooftop bars, heated pools and mountain views elevate the city break.

Four Seasons Hotel Denver

Kids will never want to leave this lavish hotel close to Larimer Square, as free snacks, a toy wagon, a DVD and game library, child-size bathrobes, pastry-decorating sessions and the use of a Nintendo Switch or Wii are all up for grabs. But grown-ups aren’t forgotten. There are free coffee and croissants in the lobby, a plush spa, a rooftop pool lined with juniper trees and free transport within 3mi (4.8km) of the hotel.

The Art, a Hotel

At this hotel in the Golden Triangle Creative District, cutting-edge art takes center stage. Curated works include a 1983 wall painting by Sol LeWitt and a Tracey Emin neon, while art buffs keen for more are steps away from Denver’s best galleries and museums. You will appreciate the in-room Illy espresso machine, bike rental, departure candy bag at check-out and the unmissable weekend brunch at sleek Fire, where buttermilk banana-walnut pancakes come with bottomless mimosas for $8.

    JW Marriott Denver Cherry Creek

    Shoppers on a mission can visit the area’s stores moments after having breakfast at the elegant JW Marriott in Cherry Creek. The neighborhood is Denver’s shopping paradise, with hundreds of chain stores and independent boutiques alongside salons, galleries and upscale restaurants.
