Whether you’re visiting Denver for a weekend (see our 3-day Denver itinerary) or an extended workcation, Four Seasons Hotel Denver promises exquisite accommodations and amenities with a top-notch location in Downtown’s Theater District. 

Rooms range from massive guestrooms to multi-bedroom, apartment-style suites — the best of which feature stunning views of the Denver skyline and distant mountains. 

The hotel’s in-house restaurant / bar, EDGE, features an elevated, locally sourced menu, and there’s also a spa with a variety of treatments, including hot-stone massages, cold-therapy facials and more.

2. The Source Hotel: one of the coolest, uniquely designed hotels in Denver's RiNo neighborhood

Super stylish with a unique blend of Scandinavian and Japanese influences, The Source is located near many of Denver’s best breweries, art galleries and other cool sights. Whereas Four Seasons Hotel Denver goes all in on contemporary elegance, The Source — which is still very much a luxury hotel — has more of a hip, youthful appeal. 

Pro tip: the rooftop bar scene offers great views, bites and brews. In fact, there are over 20 craft options on tap. 

(P.S.: if you’re especially interested in boutique, check out this guide.)

Fora Perks at The Source:

  • $25 hotel / resort credit.

  • Welcome treat in room on arrival.

  • Upgrade & guaranteed late check-out.

3. The Ramble: 17th-century French Salon meets 2020s-luxury at this cool Denver hotel

With decor and a theme self-described as having taken “inspiration from Madame Rambouillet’s French Salons of the 17th century,” The Ramble emphasizes sophistication and old-school-cool glamor. The vibe here is unique, artful and interesting.

Per its owners, The Ramble aspires to be more than a luxury hotel in Denver. It also serves as an engaging social space that fits well among River North’s trendy streets.

4. The Art Hotel Denver, Curio Collection by Hilton: a solid choice near many of Denver's best museums

While not as luxurious as the Denver hotels we’ve covered so far, The Art Hotel boasts a fun, bold and vibrant theme. Curated local artwork fills the hotel’s corridors and rooms, and many of the city’s top museums — like the Clyfford Still Museum and Denver Art Museum — are within easy walking distance.
