Denver’s accommodation options are as diverse as the city itself, with lavish hotels downtown, budget chains and artsy Airbnbs in lively neighborhoods. Stay long enough to explore the city’s thriving food scene, art galleries, craft cocktail bars and sports venues or head out to the cloud-scraping Rocky Mountains for hiking, skiing or kayaking.

Four Seasons Hotel Denver

Expect to be spoiled rotten at this sumptuous hotel near the Boettcher Concert Hall. The Four Seasons Hotel Denver has free coffee and croissants in the lobby, a DVD library to raid, custom wood furnishings and original artwork by contemporary Colorado artists. It’s also family-friendly, with child-size bathrobes, toy wagons and kid-approved snacks, while the whole family will love the large rooftop pool. Don’t miss dinner at in-house Edge Restaurant for the shareable wagyu tomahawk and divine peanut-butter-and-jelly ice cream for dessert.

The Maven at Dairy Block

Once the home of Windsor Dairy, the Dairy Block is now a micro-district in the LoDo neighborhood – an area that’s become Denver’s go-to for premium coffee, craft cocktail bars and unique dining. The Maven is an airy seven-story hotel connected to the Dairy Block at the corner of 19th Street and Wazee Street. Rooms are knowingly urban with disarming artwork, polished concrete ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows revealing views over the city, while a converted Airstream dishes out free margaritas each afternoon.

Kimpton Hotel Born

Encouraging you to leave your room and enjoy the city, the Kimpton Hotel Born has thought of everything. It has complimentary to-go coffee in the lobby, bicycles to borrow and even a free happy hour each evening where you can mingle with other guests and staff. However, it’s still tempting to linger, with 50-inch streaming TVs, in-room yoga mats, more than 200 original artworks across the hotel and rustic wood-fired meat and seafood dishes from restaurant Citizen Rail.

    Denver’s booming art scene is mirrored in the thoughtful design details of this house, with original touches more typical of a boutique hotel – think vintage trunks, displays of antique typewriters and cameras, Edison bulb lighting and soft leather sofas. From this art-filled home that sleeps six in three bedrooms, walk to nearby RiNo for street art, working studios and galleries, or stay in and relax in the backyard with a cocktail or two.
