Our top hotel choices include:
The Brown Palace Hotel: I finally got to see this historic hotel as I have heard about it for years. Though a little out of LoDo this is a hotel that is closer to the Denver Art Museum and the State Capitol building. It opened in 1892 and is still on many top hotel lists. Attached to The Brown Palace by skybridge is the Holiday Inn Express Downtown Denver. You might stay here if you are on a budget and still be connected to the hotel for its amenities.
The historic Oxford Hotel, 1600 17th Street: I checked out this historic hotel, which has been around since 1891. It looks outstanding and is in a great location within LoDo.
Hotel Teatro: This is an attractive boutique hotel located in LoDo near the Performing Arts Center and the many downtown shops, museums and restaurants. It is on many top recommended hotel lists. 1100 Fourteenth St.
A great new hotel option in LoDo is the new Crawford Hotel at Union Station which is perfect option from which to explore the restaurants and museums downtown. It was part of a $54 million renovation of the 1914 landmark that was completed in 2014. It has 112 stylish rooms. There are several dining options within the hotel and station. 1701 Wynkoop St.
Also getting good reviews is the new The Art Hotel at 1201 Broadway. It has a focus on contemporary design and art. Make sure to ask for a catalog of the collection when you arrive. You will see works by Sol Lewitt, Sam Francis, Frank Gehry, Ed Ruscha, Josef Albers, Clyfford Still, Sam Francis and Jim Dine. The 4th floor lobby is attractive with outdoor terrace and contemporary restaurant and bar.
