Denver luxury hotels can mostly be found in the Downtown District, and they tend to come in the form of boutique hotels that have an enchanting level of charm. While a few Downtown Denver luxury hotels, such as the Ritz-Carlton and the Four Seasons, are chain brand establishments, the bulk are unique to Denver, helping to make them attractive.
When looking for 5 star hotels in Denver, the Ritz-Carlton, and the Four Seasons are good places to start. Travelers can also consider the luxury resorts that can be found outside of the city. These resorts include the Inverness Hotel & Conference Center and the Omni Interlocken Resort.
The best Denver luxury hotels enjoy fantastic locations that are close to all of the city's fantastic downtown attractions. The Ritz-Carlton is one such example. This elegant hotel enjoys a prime downtown location, with attractions such as the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall and Larimer Square within walking distance. Lodo and everything that it has to offer is just a short walk away as well. As for the amenities and the facilities at the Ritz-Carlton Denver, they include 202 posh guest units, a divine spa, an excellent restaurant, an indoor lap pool, a fitness club, and a business center. Essentially a downtown resort, the Ritz-Carlton Denver has little trouble satisfying guests who desire ample amenities and fine facilities.
The Four Seasons Denver, as is true of the Ritz-Carlton, is a relatively new hotel. Unlike the Ritz-Carlton, however, it is not only a hotel, but also a residential building. The residential units are found on the upper floors, and much like the hotel rooms, they are quite luxurious. In fact, some cost more than 7 million dollars apiece. For those who prefer one of the Denver luxury hotels that are not chain hotels, boutiques such as the Brown Palace Hotel & Spa (pictured) and the Hotel Monaco figure among the best hotels in town.
Travelers looking to stay at 5 star hotels in Denver that have a lot of character, might also consider the Hotel Teatro. The Hotel Teatro is easily one of the best Downtown Denver luxury hotels, especially for those who are in town to see a show at the Center for the Performing Arts. The large and dazzling performance venue is right across the street. An exquisite boutique hotel, the Hotel Teatro features immaculate guest units that are hard to top. These 110 units feature things like marble accents, sumptuous fabrics, custom desks, sleek flat-screen TVs, and iHome docking stations that you can plug MP3-players into. These are just some of the standard amenities, and outside of the guest units, two enticing restaurants figure among the facilities. Both restaurants are headed by one of the most renowned chefs in the city. It is also worth noting that this same chef oversees the room service, so dining in can be a real treat.
These are arguably the best 5 star hotels in Denver, though visitors shouldn't limit their choices when searching for upscale accommodations. The 4 star Downtown Denver luxury hotels, such as the Hyatt Regency, can satisfy discerning travelers, and there is no shortage of upscale vacation rentals in the region, some of the best of which are found in the nearby mountains. A luxurious cabin near the city can also be worth considering, especially for nature enthusiasts. As for luxury lodging in Denver proper, those who want to enjoy good amenities at a good price can always look to save at one of the cheaper boutique hotels, such as the Magnolia Hotel and the Curtis Hotel.
