Until the mid-1990s, the 1911 Denver Tramway Building, on the corner of 14th and Arapahoe Streets, was falling into disrepair, the coffered plaster ceilings crumbling. But its potential was clear; located in the center of the emerging Downtown district and full of history, the building was waiting for the right opportunity. After it was remodeled in 1997, the structure became the Hotel Teatro, Denver’s version of boutique luxury, and it was updated again with a 2007 renovation. Entering the lobby, which is filled with photographs and costumes from the Denver Center for Performing Arts next door, guests are greeted by friendly staff eager to share their love of the Mile High City. The lobby is cool and subdued and gives off a sophisticated vibe with rich colors and silk damask couches.
Bed & Bath
The 110 rooms have high ceilings and oversize windows for taking in the neighborhood. Superior Queen Rooms are big and airy at 330 square feet and Deluxe King Rooms are 500 square feet with a small sitting area. The beds are comfortable, made up with duvets instead of standard hotel linens, and the bathrooms have deep tubs and rain forest showerheads. Hotel Teatro even has a “bath butler” who will come 24 hours a day and run a bath, fill it with Aveda oils, offer you scotch or champagne and leave you to soak, turning down your bed on the way out.
The symphony is just down the street from the hotel, as are a couple of world-class theaters. And The Nickel restaurant is great for a quick pre-theater dinner, with chef Chris Thompson serving modern farm-to-table American fare.
In the Area
As the name implies, Teatro is in Denver’s fine arts hub. See the symphony, opera or a play at the Denver Center for Performing Arts. The Denver Art Museum’s building is itself a work of art, with an extension designed by Daniel Libeskind. The Tattered Cover, just a couple of blocks from Hotel Teatro, is one of the best independent bookstores in the country — four floors and plenty of comfy seats — and the cafe has great cappuccinos and pastries. Enough with culture, it’s time to drink. Grab a seat at The Corner Office for the humming cocktail hour (try one of the extensive list of martinis) and a dangerously rich lobster mac and cheese. Spend sunny Denver days window-shopping and people watching at the pedestrian-only 16th Street Mall.
How to Get There
The best part of our stay is the staff. It started at the door with our valet,(I didn't get his name),and continued to Barbie and Adam at the front desk. Adam was on a mission to find a lost stuffed animal for a little girl. The next morning everyone was just as friendly. Our room was clean, nicely decorated, and quiet even though we were right next to the elevator. The layout of the room was unique because it is an old building that was converted into a hotel.
I chose this hotel for my wedding day very last minute. I cannot say enough great things about this amazing hotel! I arrived and had a cold red bull waiting with such great genuine happy people that helped me get checked in! As you can imagine I was a nervous wreck and was going a million miles per hr! Michael,Kaylee and Barbie were sooooooo incredible! they not only made my check in experience amazing but thrgouh the night made sure i was feeling comfortable and stress free! They went above and beyond their duties that day and i will forever be grateful! All 3 deserve a huge raise and lots of praise for their amazing customer service and wonderful attitude. The valet man -Brady has 5 stars as well! cannot thank him enough for all his sweet words and help through the night. The rooms were so beautiful and stylish! The BEST experience. Cannot wait to stay there again!
From the time we arrived at the property until we left we experienced a truly GREAT service experience.
We had just pulled into valet and had yet to secure a reservation. We had literally been driving for 13 hours and Aaron greeted us set up our reservation and in 15 minutes we had checked it been to our room and were enjoying the restaurant.
We loved our room but most of all the people....
Thank you so much
As a long-time Colorado resident I have stayed at my fair share of downtown Denver hotels and always pick Hotel Tetro as my first choice. Newly remodeled, this hotel is walking distance to so many options- theatre, Larimer Square, Union Station, Dairy Block and just a quick ride in the hotel SUV to Cherry Creek, RINO, The Source or more!! Teatro’s staff is consistently kind, and hospitable and I do appreciate the consistency. Best in-room soaking tubs in town too!! Borrow a bike, bring the dog and grab a coffee from The Study too!! Favorite thing about this property - the architecture and intimacy.
We stayed here for a night before heading to Aspen and had a great experience. Front desk was very nice and helpful. Room was a nice size and very clean. Bell hop and Valet services were excellent, they have a 24hr car service that is free for anywhere in a 2 mile radius. Adam, Nick and David were super friendly and helpful!
