Overview

The Review

Don’t judge the Warwick Denver by its exterior — compared with glass monolith neighbors like the Hyatt, the Warwick’s boxy shape looks downright dowdy. Inside, the place is much more intriguing.

The Warwick starts out wholesome enough. The lobby is set up like a family living room, complete with board games and books on dark wooden shelves and plenty of comfy couches. Things get more interesting on the second floor, where an antique French harpsichord is front and center. This instrument-turned-art was once part of the hotel’s greatest claim to fame: It hosted one of country’s original Playboy Clubs on its top floor. Rumor has it the 15th-floor lounge, now used for wedding receptions, used to have portholes for pool peeping. If so, they’ve been covered, but the rooftop pool remains a landmark in the city and one of its sexiest hotel amenities. The only year-round outdoor hotel pool in Denver, the water is close to 90 degrees even in the dead of winter.

With the exception of rooms on the 14th floor, all have private, furnished balconies facing either east or west. At first I found their black carpeting a bit odd, but after a night on the town it certainly felt nice to kick off my heels and step out to take in the lights of the city in my bare feet.

The extensive use of balconies in the building dates back to its roots as an apartment complex in the 1960s, origins that also translate into rooms and suites that are uncharacteristically spacious for a city hotel. Other legacies of the Warwick’s residential past are two water sources in each room — so make use of that wet-bar nook away from the bathroom — and enormous closets.

The Warwick rises on historic Grant Street between Denver’s Capitol Hill and Uptown neighborhoods, just a few blocks from Downtown and the 16th Street pedestrian mall with its free shuttle to LoDo (Lower Downtown). That puts the city’s best attractions, including the Denver Art Museum and its new Daniel Libeskind–designed wing, within striking distance. Explore the city and its excellent eateries and microbreweries, but be sure to make it home in time for the perfect nightcap: a dip in that steamy heated pool, bunny ears and smoking jacket not included.

Lovely hotel for our girl weekend!
Reviewed 20 hours ago

I was a little nervous booking this hotel, as ratings and some reviews were slightly lower than other hotels. However, I am so glad I ended up going with the Warwick. It is an adorable hotel that was perfect for our girl's trip. It's not a 5 star Four Seasons, but it is a lovely, comfortable, reasonably priced hotel I would absolutely return again.

Hotel: The hotel itself was clean, cute (loved the photo/phone area on each floor), and easy to get around. Parking was free around the hotel on the weekend, so we were able to stay put and Uber very easily. Only needed to park in the garage one night when it was snowing.

Room: I thought the rooms were adorable. The decor was great, the beds were surprisingly comfy (I'm a picky business traveler), the patio was great for looking at the city and watching the snow. I even liked how they stocked the snacks and drinks for you and they were very reasonably priced.

Staff: The staff was great, it seemed at times some were a bit green or newer, but any time we needed anything they were helpful. We asked for extra blankets and they came right up. The bar was closing down, but they were willing to make us a quick drink to take to the room.

Amenities: Loved the pool! No one was up there, but it was perfect at 85 degrees after a long flight from the east coast. Great area to take a drink, relax, and chat. Happy hour was also good. We just got a few drinks at BOGO prices.

First stop on a month long road trip!

The Warwick was the first hotel on a 18-stop road trip in the Eild West of the US!
This former Playboy Club is located in the centre of downtown Denver and very convenient for touring the city centre, which is very pedestrian friendly.
The room was exceptional, with king size bed, walk-in wardrobe and a separate lounge, making for a very comfortable to acclimatise on our first night in the States!
The hotel staff were very friendly and exceptionally helpful and should we find ourselves back in Denver in the future then this will be our preferred accommodation, highly recommended!

Nice hotel, friendly staff

The room was big as was the balcony. Excellent linens. Loved the pillows. Very helpful bellhop/doormen. Restaurant was mediocre. My only real complaint was the air freshener in their lovely lobby was overwhelming.

Beautiful hotel but no sound barrier
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We recently stayed at the Warwick and we arrived early but unfortunately we were unable to check in early until 20 minutes prior. It's in a great location so it was easy to stay busy until check-in time.

The hotel was beautiful and well decorated. The rooms were probably the most beautiful I've ever stayed in. My only complaint was the amount of noise was unbearable. There were kids in the room next to ours and we heard everything. Any door that closed near our room were unbelievably loud. Very difficult to sleep and to sleep in.

Such a shame for such a beautiful hotel. Hopefully they can reevaluate their sound issue to make this a 5 star rating.

great building, shockingly poor staff
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Should have been five star review, very well finished and furnished building, let down totally by inept and incompetent staff. Room was fine on arrival for seven nights, but from the remaining six, maid service just did not happen (despite a late request via reception) another so late we told them not to bother and a third where they were so late we were back at the room and had to sit out on the balcony while they worked. All from an upmarket hotel. Over 7 nights the bed linen went unchanged, we found a ticket to request this hidden in a drawer on departure day. With maids so reluctant to service our room, it would have been of little value to try using it, of course. The room was advertised as having bottled water, bath robes, slippers, a 'refreshment station'. All absent from our experience. Our room was above a service yard where waste collection lorries arrived at 5/6am each day, with noisy engines and the metallic noise of changing skip sized containers guaranteed to wake occupants several hours earlier than desired. A nice touch was being issued with tokens for a free drink in the bar each day. Less nice was seeing an inexperienced staff member alone and struggling to cope with her duties in there. When this was raised along with other issues at reception it met with a laugh. Odd reaction, but perhaps reflective of the fact that staff/management don't have a grip on things at the Warwick at present. It needs senior management to do their job and it could be excellent. Until that happens, the wise will look for alternative options. The Warwick isn't a cheap option and guests deserve a level of service reflecting the price they pay.
