This luxury hotel in the Mile High City offers the best of both worlds: a cosmopolitan setting in the buzzy downtown district and views of the majestic Rocky Mountains. Sports are something of a fixation here, with steak and seafood restaurant Elway’s named for Denver Bronco quarterback and NFL Hall of Fame Inductee John Elway – the venue even puts on special brunches before any home Broncos game. The spa, meanwhile, offers everything from bespoke body treatments to manicures, and there’s a café for healthy snacks post-pampering.
In the Area
Did we mention Denver is passionate about its sports? Get into the team spirit at one of several arenas within ten minutes walk of the hotel. Coors Field, a 76 acre ball park, is home to the Colorado Rockies; The Pepsi Center hosts professional teams including The Denver Nuggets (NBA Basketball), The Colorado Avalanche (NHL Hockey) and The Colorado Crush (Arena Football), while state-of-the-art INVESCO Field at Mile High is the place to see the Denver Broncos play. Prefer retail therapy? Hit up Larimer Square, where you can shop for everything from antique costume jewelry to artisanal chocolates, and do outdoor public yoga, if that’s your thing.
How to Get There
The only recommendation I have is to be sure your staying at the club level. Great little bites throughout the day and complimentary liquor. Also have a steak within the hotel at Elways is top notch.
If you want luxury and terrific service this hotel will not disappoint.
This was our fourth stay at the Ritz-Carlton in Denver. We enjoy coming back. We took advantage of our AMEX Fine Hotel and Resorts offer - early check in, late check out, $100 hotel credit, $60 breakfast credit, and room upgrade (when available).
We received a warm welcome from every one that we walked by - valet, concierge, and check-in staff. Although this may not mean a lot to some, it meant a huge deal to us as we were coming from spending the night at a Marriott property in Colorado Springs and received no welcome (and friendly smiling faces) at all.
We were upgraded to a room with a better view and on the very top floor. The room was spotless and offered everything one may need to be comfortable. The spacious bathroom (and shower) is always a plus!
We visited the hotel's bar for a few drinks during happy hour and ordered an appetizer and dessert (all tasted great). If you like martinis, ask for the blueberry-lemon martini; it used to be on the menu, but the bartender mentioned it and it was as good as I remembered it. Breakfast the next morning was delicious and so were the mimosas. Altogether, everyone assisting/serving us in the bar and restaurant was very friendly and professional.
We cannot wait to return to this property. We prefer it over the historical Brown Palace Hotel (also Marriott's property). Thank you to the management and staff for continuing to produce such a welcoming environment.
My niece and I had the wonderful opportunity visiting the Ritz Carlton Denver.
We were greeted by the warm hospitability of the staff and were personally brought to our room.
The rooms are very well appointed with Ritz Carlton luxury amenities along with showcasing the 5 star impeccable room, especially the bed, amazing comfort.
We started our stay with a workout at the TrueFit club which was state on all 3 floors from swimming to a full workout. Followed by spa appointments for massages which was heaven giving high marks to why the Spa can not be missed. The spa was in a perfect location, being quiet and in a private area and caring the best smelling candles and body treatment line.
Dining at Elway's restaurant is located on the first floor of the property and is also quite amazing. It is a little pricey however, well worth the dining experience. Amazing wine selection.
Living in Colorado, I can not wait to visit The Ritz Carlton Denver time and time again and highly recommend the experience of staying at what I consider a true 5 star property.
It was splendid! The location is right in the center of the downtown! Loved the way we were welcomed! The staff was very friendly! Recommended great places to visit and for the food too! The room/suite was very spacious!
This place rocks. Service is their game and they are on top of it. The room were large and well appointed. We stayed on the the club level. The food drink and help were out of this world. Special shout out to Patrick in the lounge. He made breakfast each morning as smooth as silk. We spent 5 nights. The staff knew our names by the end of day 1 and knew our likes and dislikes. Can’t wait to return.
