Top 5 Luxury Hotels in Denver

When you think of Denver, what is the first thought that comes to mind? Mountains? Sports? Cannabis? I will assume that the word luxury wasn’t in the top five, but that is the past! The scenery in the greater metro area of Denver, especially in the culinary world, really started to change when Top Chef filmed their season in Colorado in 2017. This allowed people all across the nation to see what was happening here, culinary and socially, and business owners of social establishments found themselves taking on a new level of poise and refinement.

Denver, currently and well into the future, will continue to be an incredible city that offers both outdoor exploration and luxurious settings.

I do know this, for certain, that the five luxury hotels I have listed here are one-of-a-kind and a must stay! These are in no particular order of admiration, because each one has their own unique and exquisite story to tell.

Kimpton Hotel Born // 1600 Wewatta St, Denver, CO 80202

Modern, elegant, easy sophisticated luxury located right in the downtown Union Station and LoDo neighborhoods. Hotel Born is in a league of their own with an original art collection, sleek finishing’s, floor-to-ceiling windows in every guest room, two restaurants of impeccable caliber, an incredible wine bar, and a patio that over looks the train station at Union Station.

Halycon Cherry Creek // 245 Columbine St, Denver, CO 80206

Halycon is also in Cherry Creek but the spin on this hotel is a little different. Instead of checking in at the lobby, you will check in at the Kitchen Counter where the host is there to prepare your accommodations and serve you with a complimentary glass of wine or espresso. Halycon wants you to feel like you’re home; games by the fire, a private cabana by the rooftop pool, or soak in a luxurious bath while overlooking the Rockies from your room. There are three dining spaces to choose from: Italian; a neighborhood feel dining atmosphere; or, the rooftop bar with light fares. There are a multitude of rooms to choose from but all offer the same experience; cozy elegance with a modern and welcoming take. Just outside of the restaurant you will find shopping, other dining options, art galleries, and jewelry boutiques. Cherry Creek is just a short 15 minute ride to downtown.

I have spent time at each of them and honestly, I can’t pick one I love more than the other. All five of luxurious hotels have their own unique attributes. What I can say with the utmost confidence, is that no matter which location you pick, you will make memories to last a lifetime. You will also continue to come back to Denver, if you don’t immediately move here, to experience each hotel.
