Visitors to Denver are immediately drawn to the historic sandstone building - even if not spending the night. Those that are will find rooms with historic appeal and thoughtful modernity. Since its opening in 1892, this 'grand dame' of Colorado hotels has worked hard to keep the character of its cultural and historic roots while continuing to modernize. The eight-story atrium, topped with a stained-glass ceiling, certainly gives a feeling of grandeur. I highly recommend the traditional afternoon tea served in this space, which features specialty teas, sandwiches and desserts (my favorite treats are the almond paste macaroons). Located on a lower floor, the quiet spa provides the ultimate relaxation experience. Standard rooms feature updated, Victorian-influenced décor with modern amenities such as a luxurious bedding package, flat-screen TVs, and a high-tech coffee machine.
