Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

A theater-focused luxury hotel housed in a historic Renaissance Revival building

The 110-room Hotel Teatro is located in a beautiful Renaissance Revival building dating to 1911, when it operated as the headquarters for the Denver Tramway. Original details -- such as the grand wall-to-ceiling marble work in the hotel lobby, and the dramatic, gray-veined marble staircase -- have been preserved.

Teatro literally means theater in Italian and Spanish, and this downtown luxury hotel is perfectly situated for theater enthusiasts. The Denver Center for the Performing Arts is located right across the street, and the hotel fully embraces the proximity by offering theater-night packages and one-of-a-kind theater decor. Original costumes, including a costume Annette Bening wore for the Denver Theatre Company, are on proud display on the walls. The rooms are decorated with a little theater flair as well, including old production posters and still photographs from performances. The staff is knowledgeable about current shows, and some of them have theater backgrounds themselves.

 Location

In downtown Denver, within walking distance of most attractions, including the Colorado Convention Center and the popular 16th Street Pedestrian Mall

The Hotel Teatro is located in downtown Denver's Central Business District, within walking distance of many major attractions. It's next to several other major Denver luxury hotels, including the Four Seasons and The Curtis.

The 16th Street Pedestrian Mall and the Colorado Convention Center are both a short walk away. Other frequented downtown attractions include the Denver Mint, the State Capitol Building, Coors Field, and Denver's renowned microbreweries.

 Rooms

Contemporary and upscale, but a little small for the price

While smaller than other luxury hotel rooms in the Downtown Denver area, the rooms at Hotel Teatro are understated and sophisticated, with plush beds and modern bathrooms featuring big soaking tubs. Large windows and the earth tone color scheme make the rooms feel warm and bright.

  • 12-foot ceilings make the rooms feel more spacious than they are
  • Large bathrooms featuring big soaking tubs, separate glass showers with rain showerheads, double sinks, robes and high-end toiletries
  • Free bottled water
  • Coffee/tea makers in every room
  • Empty mini-fridges
  • A marble/leather work desk, with a couch or sitting chair (sometimes both).
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • 32-inch flat-screen TVs
  • Only six of the 110 rooms are suites

 Features

Small fitness center, but no on-site spa or pool

  • Modern fitness center, although it's small -- only four cardio machines and a single rack of free weights
  • No spa on-site, but in-room spa treatments available
  • The Nickel offers dishes like eggs benedict in the mornings; scallops and ribeye in the evenings
  • The Barrel Bar serves house barrel-aged cocktails
  • Free Wi-Fi in guestrooms
  • A 2014 renovation introduced The Study -- a library lounge area with Barista Bar
  • Valet parking only, with a daily fee
  • Free hotel vehicle/shuttle service within a five-mile radius
  • 10,000 square feet of meeting space
  • Pet-friendly, with no extra fees
  • No pool
