No matter where you choose, it’s best to stay close to Union Station for quick and easy access to public transportation.
Here are Insider’s top recommendations for the best places to stay in Denver.
Steps from downtown Denver, Crawford Hotel is located just above Denver’s iconic Union Station, a hub of transportation, restaurants, bars, and shopping. Founded in 2014, the hotel features historic details such as 65-foot ceilings and stunning chandeliers reflecting the state of Union Station when it opened in 1881.
Tucked away in Denver’s historic Capitol Hill district, the Patterson Inn is a Victorian mansion turned boutique hotel. From a Marie-Antoinette themed bedroom to a Prague-inspired suite, each of the nine accommodations has its own theme. And, according to rumors, the hotel could even be haunted.
The Oxford Hotel
The Oxford Hotel is a luxury hotel one block from Union Station in Denver’s Lower Downtown (or LoDo) neighborhood. The hotel combines historic and contemporary design to create a welcoming stay. Inside you’ll find an art collection and a luxury spa, and over a dozen fine restaurants are within walking distance.
In addition to avant-garde accommodation, Source is close to the highway, allowing easy access to state parks and nearby nature trails. It’s also in the Denver’s River North (or RiNo) district, so guests are steps away from trendy breweries, trendy restaurants, and expansive food courts.
Perhaps the biggest perk of staying at The Source is the market downstairs, which includes a collection of independent shops and restaurants. To try Temaki Den for fresh sushi, or The Woods restaurant and the rooftop for its striking views of downtown Denver and the Rocky Mountains.
For a unique and affordable stay, consider a room at the Curtis, a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel. Rooms start at just $ 88 a night and are decorated with pop culture references and pops of bright color. Located in downtown Denver, the Curtis is steps from the Denver Art Museum, Coors Field baseball stadium, the Denver Aquarium and many restaurants.
A Victorian Airbnb in Curtis Park
Located in Denver’s Curtis Park, this exceptional one-bedroom Airbnb shines with historic details and peaceful porch. It’s located in a quiet area of Denver, but within walking distance of the trendy bars, restaurants, cafes, and stores that fill the North Denver River (or RiNo) neighborhood.
