Overview

Victorian grande dame gone Wild West bawdy in Denver’s buzzy LoDo with a classic bar, seafood eatery and spa

The Look

The Victorian–meets–Art Deco Oxford is Denver’s most historic hotel, a fixture in the Mile High City since 1891. A witness to the city’s bawdiest decades, it sat next to a brothel during the silver boom and hosted boozy parties behind a secret wall with underground escape tunnels during Prohibition. The décor pays respect to the past without feeling stuffy. In the lobby, gilded oil paintings, ornate wainscotting and grand fireplaces preside over buttery leather sofas and chenille armchairs in warm natural tones.

Bed & Bath

No two rooms, spread across five floors, are alike, and the owner routinely adds new pieces of art and antique furniture to the constantly evolving design. Antique furniture—four poster beds in some, grand amoires in others—is complemented by all the mod cons, including free WiFi, flatscreen TVs and iPod-friendly Bose audio systems.

Beyond

The Oxford holds down its stretch of 17th Street with a nautical wink: The hotel’s Cruise Room bar opened up the morning after Prohibition was repealed and is modeled after a bar on the original Queen Mary ocean liner, and the McCormick’s Fish House serves the best seafood in a culinary scene dominated by red meat. Work off your indulgences in the fitness center and then head to the spa, which uses local products in many of its treatments.

In the Area

The Oxford occupies an ideal LoDo location, within stumbling distance of the Performing Arts Complex, Union Station, Coors Field and many of the city’s famed microbreweries. Take a bite – or a sip – out of Denver’s culinary and drink scene with a Local Table Tour. Thematic walking tours include Market to Table and Patio Cocktail trips; check the calendar for what’s on offer when you’re in town. Denver’s most beloved independent bookstore, the Tattered Cover, is nearby, and has multiple floors filled with hard-to-find and locally written books.

Charming historic hotel located in the heart of LODO

This is a beautiful, well appointed hotel with unique historic rooms equipped with the necessary modern features. The rooms are spacious and clean with comfortable beds. The hotel staff could not be nicer or more helpful. We stayed over my birthday & they placed a basket full of birthday goodies in our room. You are within easy walking distance of Coors Field, Union Station, and too may great restaurants to count. The restaurant attached, The Urban Farmer is delicious with fun seasonal food & cocktails. We travel a good bit, and we are picky about hotels, but we would definitely stay here again!

From the moment I checked in, I felt pampered. Mark at the front desk took great care of me when the system to check in was down. He got me a water and a glass of sparkling rose while I waited. He then came and got me when I was able to check in. Wonderful service and the rooms are luxurious and comfortable. My favorite hotel for a staycation in Denver. Awesome location with a great restaurant too. Will be back

Great experience at The Oxford

We recently stayed at the classic Oxford Hotel while catching a Colorado Rockies game. What a pleasant surprise!
The hotel staff is very welcoming and pay attention to the details, they are most accommodating. This recently remodeled hotel is within short walking distance of Union Station and Coors Field. The rooms are very comfy & spacious.

Practically a perfect weekend with a Rockies win, excellent dinner and margaritas at the Blue Agave Grill (16th Street Mall & Larimer), great breakfast at Urban Farmer, and pampered stay at The Oxford Hotel!

A/C In the room was not the best( we visited during a heat wave). Limited in room dining, but fabulous restaurant just downstairs. Amazing location and service. Would def recommend.
