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
This hotel is very close to everything in downtown Denver. Walking distance to the Coors stadium, tons of restaurants, shops and museums. Denver is a great city. I came out to mainly go to Red Rocks Amphitheater to see a show. It was a really neat and beautiful venue. Also, spent a day at Rocky Mountain National Park. Its views are breath taking. It's a must see. I spent 4 nights at this property. Super nice staff. I can't remember his name but when you walk into the lobby, there's a very distinguished looking gentleman, perfectly dressed, with a tray of delicious cookies welcoming you back. The club lounge had excellent service. Ritz Carltons usually have Pepsi products and the club lounge made sure to order extra Diet Coke during my stay so I would have it. And, this is why I'm loyal to this hotel brand. However, since this is more of a city property and not a resort, the food selections were super limited. The breakfast was very good but the other presentations were meh. But, the staff was so incredible, it made up for the food falling short. My flight from the east coast arrived early and the hotel happily let me check in a few hours early. My flight back was in the evening and again, late check out was not a big deal.
This is a smaller Ritz and not the most "blingy" but the staff makes you feel like you're the most important guest at the hotel. I would absolutely love staying here again on my next visit to Denver.
We stayed for a conference at the convention center this week . The staff is pleasant and hard working. I was able to check in early and check out late due to a late flight. The concierge gave excellent recommendations and was able to get us tickets to the sold out monet exhibit at the art museum. The spa was delightful and very professional . I enjoyed the hot apple cider and nut mix in the evening at the lobby entrance. Everyone I met was helpful. I enjoyed drinks and the game on TV at the Elways bar. The rooms could use some updating and I didn't like the carpet in the room. Felt dirty and old. I would prefer a tile or wood floor. But that is my own preference . Also the bathroom was large but a narrow tub/shower combo which I don't love. The mattress was not great but okay.
Had a great stay, close to everything including the baseball stadium & shops and the bars & restaurants. Can’t go wrong! Probably should have stayed longer than just the 2 nights. Would stay here again next time
