How to Get There
Wow oh wow! Where do I start! I have seen the grandeur of the Crawford so many times in passing while going between places near Union Station (for work trips) in the past. Finally, I had the opportunity to stay that the exquisite Crawford Hotel, and it was even better than I imagined. The Crawford has a unique vibe about it which I have not experienced anywhere else. It is at a real, working train station, so that is marvelous in itself that the planners managed to figure out how to meld the flow of the workers in transit together with the folks there with less hurried schedules, and create a lovely mix of energy and ambiance in its symbiosis. I also got to learn its history a bit - that the station dates back to turn of the century train transit; and the hotel itself is actually very new - starting only in the last 5 years renovation work. The rich history together with the beautiful neoclassical architecture and decor make the experience one definitely for bucket lists. I have often thought to myself - this reminds me of Disneyland - so beautiful and cute, but it is REAL! One other person we ran into in the course of my stay (while getting our free ice cream :-P) remarked the same thing about it feeling all very surreal and fantastical. The customer service of the hotel was very awesome. At check-in, the hostess walked us, guiding us to our room, while describing all the free things included with the stay. She made us feel very welcome there, which was nice since we had been traveling for such a long time. The views are breathtaking anywhere at the Crawford - whether through the window, or just looking down to the terminal of Union Station. I had a wonderful time just walking around Union Station at night admiring the beauty of everything, while proud of America's rail transit heritage. When at Crawford/Union Station I can really see how other cities/metros would be wise to imitate what Denver Union and the Crawford have done with their transit/infrastructure planning! Oh, and the Tesla ride/driver which we used for getting to/from dinner one of the nights was very enjoyable as well!
The Crawford Hotel located in the Denver Union Station is a unique hotel in a great historic location. We stayed in a Pullman Room, which was clean, comfortable, roomy, and nicely decorated. Bathroom was spacious with nice amenities and a large shower. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The train station provided the perfect setting for one-stop dining and lounging. A little pricey, but worth it.
My husband and I were embarking on a week long trip to ride excursions trains in Colorado and New Mexico, so we stayed at the Crawford for our first night in Denver. The hotel is located in the renovated train station, which seemed like the perfect place to begin our journey. My husband is the train fan, and he really enjoyed staying at the station and learning about all the intermodal transportation options that come together there. Our room was on an upper floor in the building, and must have been an office before it was converted to a hotel. The room was not large, but was very well appointed, with a lovely bathroom and very comfortable bed. It was quiet and well-designed. When you arrive at the Crawford, it takes someone to show you where the hotel front-desk is located, as it is off to the side of the train waiting area. Service was prompt and cheerful from the staff. The main level of the station has a number of bars and restaurants, so it is very convenient that way. The only negative is the price--it is over $400 a night (including parking) for a fairly small but nice room.
Great time at the Crawford. Really fun to stay in a high end hotel with a train station for a lobby. Best part was complimentary TESLA to get us around town. Riley, aka Tyler the TESLA driver is da BEST.
Let’s start with the Crawford Hotel’s price which is on the higher end. With that said every single facet of the hotel met or exceeded our expectations for the price. The rooms were very comfortable, well appointed, and quiet (a big concern based on the location). The staff were all top notch and there are to many amenities to take advantage of in under a week’s stay. I would strongly recommend the historical tour of Union Station (1 hour) to give you an appreciation for the site. Also take advantage of the Hotel’s Tesla X to get you to and from dinner. We have stayed at a number of Denver Hotels and the Crawford is our new favorite.
Certainly worth singling out are Dusk (excellent service at the front desk), Conlin (sp) (an outstanding tour guide and concierge), and Riley (our Tesla driver). Well done.
