Home to Confluence and Civic Center parks, with Red Rocks Amphitheater on its outskirts, the Colorado capital of Denver, in the Rocky Mountains, has some pretty good sights. Choose a room with a view – and a balcony – to enjoy them to the max.

The former Colorado National Bank, built in the early 20th century, has bags of character: you’ll be greeted by a three-story lobby lined with creamy marble pillars, and decorated with murals by Allen Tupper True. Meanwhile, the three original bank vaults may no longer hold stacks of gold, but they can host guests for private meetings or dining events.

2. Warwick Denver

Warwick Denver is in the sweet spot of the city, with 16th Street Mall, the State Capitol building, Union Station and Coors Field all in batting distance. From the exclusive rooftop, featuring a year-round heated pool and bar, you’ll be able to enjoy these sites. Of course, if you’d prefer to admire the views in solace, do so from the privacy of the balcony in your own spacious suite designed with a modern take on mid-century cool.

3. The Maven at Dairy Block

The Maven at Dairy Block emanates simplicity, with large loft-style rooms that cleverly maximize on light and space. Think exposed concrete walls, gigantic windows that allow light to flood in, and balconies that bring you closer to the Rocky Mountains. The hotel’s micro-district is full of alternative cafés, boutiques and bars, but you don’t need to venture outside to find a cool cantina; the Maven’s eclectic Kachina Cantina will sort you out with that green chili taco you’ve been craving.

4. The Art, a Hotel

The Art Hotel Denver, in the city’s famous River North Arts District (RiNo), is named like so for a reason: it’s surrounded by some of Denver’s coolest contemporary galleries, stop-you-in-your-tracks street murals and eclectic cocktail and craft beer bars. The glass-front hotel itself will have you double-take it for a gallery; its modern interiors are highlighted by a curated collection of contemporary art. You’ll find yourself surrounded by artwork – whether you’re resting in your room or indulging in a fresh dish at the Fire Restaurant & Lounge.

5. Halcyon Hotel Cherry Creek

Halcyon Hotel Cherry Creek, in the center of Denver’s shopping district, is a chic home away from home. The front desk has been swapped for the Kitchen Counter, which serves up wine on arrival, while the lobby-cum-living-room invites you to luxuriate around the fireplace or get stuck into board games. Adventurous? Head down to the Gear Garage, and help yourself to bikes, yoga mats, Vespas and longboards, along with gadgets like GoPros and binoculars.

6. The Ramble Hotel

The Ramble Hotel possesses the two greatest assets of the surrounding River North Art District (RiNo): art and community. Designed to reflect the vintage glamour of 17th-century French salons, this hotel’s characterful spaces will spark conversation. After a day spent exploring Denver, sip on a tongue-tingling Strange Brew at the award-winning cocktail bar, Death & Co., before retiring to your pied-à-terre to watch the sunset over the Rockies from your balcony.

7. DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Denver

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Denver, in quiet Stapleton, is just 10 minutes from all the action. It might not be the fanciest joint in town, but what it lacks in glamour, it makes up for in affordability. Plus, the rooms and suites provide much more space than those in a more central location. Ask for a balcony to make the most of an uninterrupted view of the mountains beyond.

8. Queen Anne Bed and Breakfast

Bed and Breakfast

The Queen Anne Bed and Breakfast is a superb 19th-century Victorian property where luxury and sustainability go hand in hand. On its way to becoming zero-waste, the B&B reduces, reuses and recycles where possible, and buys fresh produce from local vendors. The B&B’s rooms and suites boast many indulgences, from a log fireplace to a private deck; the latter comes with a jetted spa to soak in as you admire the Denver skyline.
