After a day of fresh air, sunshine and beach frolics, bed down at one of these excellent Denver-area hotels, now bookable with Culture Trip.

Cherry Creek State Park is only a 20-minute drive from Denver, Colorado, yet it feels like you’re days away from the big city. The beach, the trails and the on-water activities create the perfect weekend getaway, even for those who live close by. Get your fill of recreation at this reservoir, and take time to relax when you stay at the best hotels near Cherry Creek State Park.

1. Denver Marriott Tech Center

Denver Marriott Tech Center knows how difficult it is to keep it “business as usual” when working so close to the great outdoors. The hotel will help you stay as focused as possible, though, with a full range of business services and a complimentary corporate shuttle. The minute five o’clock hits, however, the staff will also help you loosen up your tie, with Rocky Mountain brews at the Pint Brothers Alehouse and directions to their favorite Denver dives close to the Light Rail.

2. Lone Tree Golf Club And Hotel

We’re not sure which is more appealing: the views of the twinkling city or the golf course’s rolling fairways at Lone Tree Golf Club and Hotel. Granted, the Downtown Denver skyline makes for a perfect backdrop when hitting a drive, but the bird’s eye view of the course from your room’s balcony will look even better while sipping an Arnold Palmer. Play the par-72 – designed by the legend himself – and see for yourself.

3. Hilton Denver Inverness

No need to run to the Rockies for a pampering; just book a room at Hilton, and let the spa spoil you just the same. A private outdoor hot tub and fire-lit patio will put a cap on an afternoon of age-defying treatments, stress-zapping massages and that mani-pedi combo you’ve needed for ages. Squeeze a little more serenity out of your trip by reserving the Presidential Suite so you can keep the oversized jetted tub all to yourself.

4. Woolley's Classic Suites

The good news is that Woolley’s Classic Suites is just a few minutes away from Denver International Airport, so you can eliminate the anxiety of missing your flight out. The bad news is that, once you check in to this all-suites hotel, you’ll never want to leave. The only way the staff will be able to coax you out of your VIP Suite is to hope that your wet bar runs dry long enough for them to steer you to the free shuttle.

5. The Adagio Bed & Breakfast, Denver

The Adagio, once a 19th-century home, is now a bed and breakfast so charming, you’d think it was ripped from the pages of a Victorian novella. The quiet outdoor garden and hot tub are as relaxing as an in-room massage, and, with three of the six rooms featuring two-person jetted tubs or walk-in showers, this is one that’s too good not to share. If you are alone, wander down to Tattered Cover Bookstore, and pick up a Harlequin novel for your own private enjoyment.

6. Patterson Inn

Bed and Breakfast, Hotel

Opulence is always in season at the Patterson Inn. This landmark mansion will dazzle you with the grand, gothic design of the Prague Suite or the rich monochromatic theme in the refined Biltmore Suite. It’s hard to choose a favorite, and the floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and writing desk in the Library Suite don’t make it any easier. Though the charming neighborhood is the perfect setting for a carriage ride, you’ll need a little more horsepower to make the 20-minute drive to Cherry Creek State Park.

7. The ART, a hotel

There’s more than a brushstroke of bias towards the arts at this Downtown Denver hotel. The ART is as colorful as the city’s creative scene, boasting its own curated collection and hosting artist showcases. The mountain-view suites are so inspiring, you’ll want to jump on one of the hotel’s rental bikes and speed off to the nearest art supply store. Don’t forget to stop at the Denver Art Museum and the Clyfford Still Museum on your way back.

8. Hotel Teatro

With both a craft beer concierge and a charcuterie concierge, Hotel Teatro lets you know you’re deep in Denver from the moment you arrive. Naturally, a balcony suite is a must when enjoying the Mile High City properly. Round-the-clock dining ensures that munchies make it to your room no matter the hour. If we could tempt you to leave the hotel late at night, the reindeer, rattlesnake and jack-a-lope hot dogs at Biker Jim’s are well worth the 1mi (1.6km) walk.
