Elegant Downtown Denver Boutique Hotels
Romance your sweetheart in one of the city’s elegant boutique hotels: The Crawford, The ART, Hotel Monaco, or Hotel Teatro?
Downtown Denver’s newest hotel is the Crawford at Union Station, a hotel transporting the guest back to the magic of train travel and the Victorian era. Named for Denver’s Union Station partner Dana Crawford, the Crawford Hotel is already a city favorite, with its three types of hotel rooms and vibrant lobby (Great Hall) in the renovated Union Station.
Relax with your loved one at the Terminal Bar, on the east end, marked by the original ticket windows, or take your drink and explore the lobby. Multiple restaurants are also within the property, or step out into the Denver sunshine (300 days a year!) and explore the city.
The ART, a Hotel is a downtown Denver masterpiece, especially for those who enjoy the art exhibits. Located in downtown Denver’s Cultural District, the boutique hotel utilizes its prime location to capture the local contemporary art scene. Artwork also lines the walls of every level, and each floor is dedicated to a different artist and their work. Even the elevator features video art!
For a romantic evening, lounge in the open-air lobby, FIRE, the contemporary American restaurant with a terrace and cocktail lounge, as the Mile High City will often surprise you with a beautiful day even in the winter.
Bold, playful and vibrant, the Hotel Monaco Denver is an upscale boutique near everything Denver. Start with its lobby, called the “living room” with its bright colors and high ceilings, and where the social gathering is every afternoon at 5 p.m. for its free nightly happy hour.
Its rooms are hip, alluring and full of color, a fascinating blend of urban and Western décor. This Denver boutique hotel is also home to the simply amazing Northern Italian restaurant, Panzano, courtesy the culinary magic of Chef Elise. You can wrap up your romance with a spa treatment at VEDA Salon & Spa, located off the lobby.
Distinctive Blend of History Hotels in Downtown Denver
Or walk the halls of history with a stay in one of downtown Denver’s historic hotels: the Teatro, Brown Palace or Oxford Hotels.
It’s a win-win at the Hotel Teatro, a boutique and historic hotel near the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. And for those who prefer romance with their family pet, Hotel Teatro welcomes your pet at no additional charge.

Hip and Chic Downtown Denver Hotels
For hip and chic, consider these stylish and welcoming Denver accommodations: AC Hotel by Marriott with its rooftop bar.
Independently owned Ramble Hotel Denver offers just 50 guestrooms, featuring an outdoor courtyard and lobby bar, Death & Co. Denver. The latter is an outpost of a decade only New York City bar of the same name. It’s fun and funky, and romantically quirky.
Although I haven’t stayed here yet, I’ve enjoyed happy-hour and lunch in its lobby bar and it’s always bustling.
