Historic digs in the Mile High City’s fine arts hub and near the best restaurants and bars in town
Until the mid-1990s, the 1911 Denver Tramway Building, on the corner of 14th and Arapahoe Streets, was falling into disrepair, the coffered plaster ceilings crumbling. But its potential was clear; located in the center of the emerging Downtown district and full of history, the building was waiting for the right opportunity. After it was remodeled in 1997, the structure became the Hotel Teatro, Denver’s version of boutique luxury, and it was updated again with a 2007 renovation. Entering the lobby, which is filled with photographs and costumes from the Denver Center for Performing Arts next door, guests are greeted by friendly staff eager to share their love of the Mile High City. The lobby is cool and subdued and gives off a sophisticated vibe with rich colors and silk damask couches.
Bed & Bath
The 110 rooms have high ceilings and oversize windows for taking in the neighborhood. Superior Queen Rooms are big and airy at 330 square feet and Deluxe King Rooms are 500 square feet with a small sitting area. The beds are comfortable, made up with duvets instead of standard hotel linens, and the bathrooms have deep tubs and rain forest showerheads. Hotel Teatro even has a “bath butler” who will come 24 hours a day and run a bath, fill it with Aveda oils, offer you scotch or champagne and leave you to soak, turning down your bed on the way out.
The symphony is just down the street from the hotel, as are a couple of world-class theaters. And The Nickel restaurant is great for a quick pre-theater dinner, with chef Chris Thompson serving modern farm-to-table American fare.
In the Area
As the name implies, Teatro is in Denver’s fine arts hub. See the symphony, opera or a play at the Denver Center for Performing Arts. The Denver Art Museum’s building is itself a work of art, with an extension designed by Daniel Libeskind. The Tattered Cover, just a couple of blocks from Hotel Teatro, is one of the best independent bookstores in the country — four floors and plenty of comfy seats — and the cafe has great cappuccinos and pastries. Enough with culture, it’s time to drink. Grab a seat at The Corner Office for the humming cocktail hour (try one of the extensive list of martinis) and a dangerously rich lobster mac and cheese. Spend sunny Denver days window-shopping and people watching at the pedestrian-only 16th Street Mall.
