Luxe it up at Cherry Creek’s Halcyon Hotel. The service and amenities at this hotel are off the charts.  Starting with an espresso/wine bar in the lobby for guests as you enter, you can relax next to the fireplace and play board games, or visit the Gear Garage where guests can check out Vespas, bikes, and Adventure Kits to explore the surrounding area. Denver’s most luxurious and iconic shopping center, Cherry Creek North, is just across the street, and the entire neighborhood is filled with fantastic restaurants and boutiques. And to top it all off, there is a rooftop pool and hot tub with an unbelievable view of the Denver skyline and the Rocky Mountains. We even had a unique contemporary record player in our room along with a choice of albums and an espresso machine to craft up a warm drink on a chilly morning.

Located downtown, next to Denver’s art museum, The ART includes its own two galleries of contemporary artworks as well as various mediums of art gracing the hallways and guest rooms.  Be sure to ask the concierge for a tour and check out all of the art while learning more about the hotel. The ART is also home to the FIRE restaurant serving farm-to-table contemporary American fare. Have drinks on the terrace by the firepit or enjoy room service while you relax in the comfort of your room. Take a stroll to the nearby park or visit the Denver Art Museum for even for more remarkable creations. Your stay at The ART is sure to be one to remember.

Travel back in time and stay at The Oxford, Denver’s most historic hotel. Established in 1891 and located across from Union Station, The Oxford is a step into a romantic era of luxury. Some of the former guests at The Oxford include Theodore Roosevelt and the Dalai Lama. The Oxford boasts downtown Denver’s only wood-burning fireplace and bellmen decked out in bow-ties. Enjoy cocktails in the art deco Cruise Room Martini Bar and dine at any of the nearby fine restaurants in Denver’s LoDo area.

Conveniently located in the center of downtown Denver, the Hyatt Place/Hyatt House sit side by side under the same roof and are in walking distance from the Denver Convention Center, where you can spot Denver’s Big Blue Bear.  Begin the day with a complimentary breakfast that includes an omelet bar, where a chef will build your creation with cage-free eggs, along with lots of delicious pastries, all natural meats, Greek yogurt, potatoes, cereals, fresh fruits and more. Take a dip in the indoor pool that is heated year-round, or get a quick workout in at the 24-hour gym. If you’re in town for business or fun, or a combination of both, you’re within walking distance to everything downtown at Hyatt Place/Hyatt House.

Just minutes away from the DIA terminals the new Westin DIA is a modern beauty of a luxury hotel.  Built of glass to represent a bird in flight, the Westin DIA is beautiful to behold. And being right at the airport one might think you’d be disturbed by airplane noise – but not the case. All the windows are triple-paned to block out airport noise. Be sure to stop by the Sky Lounge in the lobby for a cocktail or snack while checking out the views from the floor to ceiling windows. The hotel also has some incredible art installations you won’t want to miss, along with art by local artists. So if you want to sleep in a little longer, the Westin DIA is only 150 feet away from the terminal entrance, yet still lets you relax in luxury. Can’t beat that.
