How to Get There
Lets deal with the BUT first. We were in room 325 , the door from the bedroom to the bathroom was frosted glass. Why? When one used the toilet at night, and switched on the light, the light little impeded by the glass washed over the room waking my wife. There is a trend among hotel designers to use glass with varying degrees of opacity in the bath room door. Why? I want to meet the guest who on booking said “give me the room with the glass bath room door so I can wake my partner through the night with my nocturnal evacuations, and they can have the unbridled joy of seeing my flabby distorted form performing these acts of relief.” Who is this customer? The glass bathroom door is an act of design desperation craving difference in a crowded market. Doubtless there was a staff meeting where the Head of Marketing said “ we will dominate the hotel market not just by well appointed rooms at competitive prices, supported by superb staff; we are going to dominate this sector through the raw innovation of glass in the bathroom door.” Cue applause by the owner's corporate myrmidons incapable of grasping the practical reality. If you have read thus far thank you I feel better now. The glass bathroom is a design flaw in an otherwise great hotel, built round an interesting space. The Crawford is in the old, but still functioning Denver Union station. This is a superb location, centre of down town Denver, you can catch trains across the west and more importantly to the airport. One of the joys of the Crawford is you can stay in central Denver and not need a car. Our room was on the 3rd floor, the door opening on to a balcony that over looked the central concourse. The concourse is a public space, with a variety of good eateries and bars, and is abuzz with life, so different from the solemnity of the traditional hotel lobby. However abuzz means noise and I was concerned this would be a noisy room . It was not. The thick, insulated door, halted all emanations, this was a triumph of noise suppresion design. The room was quiet, well appointed , Nespresso machine, good wifi , comfortable bed. All supported by well trained staff, truly helpful, friendly, and competent. I would happily go back if they solved the glass bath room door issue.
I have never before stayed at a hotel where before I even left, I was saying to myself that I needed to come back. The Crawford is a truly unique and wonderful experience, from the wooden beams that break through the rooms to the absolutely top notch staff who will go above & beyond for you. Everything about the stay is absolute luxury.
Many thanks to Riley - best courtesy car driver ever - for the r/t to the Fillmore last Sat. eve (Greta Van Fleet was truly awesome... much love to the Fil. as well). This was our forth stay at The Crawford, the room was most excellent (love the high ceilings), the entire staff was great as usual and the location simply cannot be beat. The selection of food, libations and shopping in Union Station is impressive (Pigtrain Coffee is superb... their cro-nuts are my new addiction). We're already looking forward to our next stay, see you then.
Spent 2 nights at the Crawford. The staff were very friendly and professional. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated and clean. The rooms was very quiet, never heard anyone above. below or next to us. The building itself is majestic and historic. Many wonderful restaurants within walking distance of hotel. Would definitely stay again!
We were only able to stay one night at The Crawford after a last minute decision to visit Denver, but it was such a memorable stay. Walking into the Union Station lobby made us stop and drop our jaws... it's beautiful and vibrant.
The woman at the desk generously offered us a choice of rooms on the 3rd floor (high ceilings, views of the train tracks) or the 4th floor loft. We switched to the 3rd floor and were very happy with the room, which was luxurious and romantic.
We ate downstairs that night and at Snooze the next morning. Both meals were fantastic. I am vowing right now that I am coming back to Denver and I'm staying at The Crawford again!
