This ultra-contemporary property gives a design nod to the mountain and outdoor influences. You may have to look carefully, but you can find these references in the minimal wood garden decorating the lobby – and furniture made with natural materials. Conveniently located to downtown attractions yet not far from the airport, this hotel is well suited for business travelers. Rooms are spacious yet modern and offer great views out to the Denver skyline and the Rocky Mountains. Enjoy the fresh cuisine of the Fifty300 restaurant – along with the Elevate Lounge for cocktails and local brews.

2. Courtyard by Marriott Denver Central Park

This modern property is well located for all of Denver’s attractions – but particularly the Denver Botanical Gardens on York Street. The gardens are 24-acres (9.7ha) of urban oasis – visit the Cactus and Succulent House or the Dryland Mesa where there are often bunnies hopping around. You’re only a stone’s throw from the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Reserve – and, for golfers, the Aurora Golf Courses. Back at the hotel, the Bistro is perfect for casual dining and after a swim – in the indoor pool ensconced in a conservatory with a glass roof – extend your day at the outdoor terrace, complete with a fire pit.

5. Catbird Hotel

Independent Hotel

The overriding theme of this offbeat and eccentric independent hotel is creativity. There is art literally everywhere around the Catbird, which is situated amid the up-and-coming RiNo district. Head straight up to the rooftop bar and terrace and take in views of the city skyline, before settling into a hot tub or lounge seating. Guest rooms are achingly hip with striking use of space – and, again, that artistic flair that is so much a part of this hotel’s ambiance.
