Traditional Italian decor in an older Denver-area hotel
From the outside, it’s hard to tell whether the Loews Denver's building is an office space or a hotel. But once inside, the lobby impresses with grand Italian style -- lots of marble, hand-painted murals, and Renaissance-inspired paintings.
It's apparent that the Loews Denver is an older hotel (it was built in 1987), even though it was last renovated in 2005.
The Loews Denver Hotel is located 15 minutes outside of downtown Denver, and a mile outside of Cherry Creek.
Surrounded by office buildings and strip malls, this hotel is not ideal for leisure tourists who want to walk to the sites in downtown Denver. The nearby Cherry Creek features a large shopping center, but little else.
Rooms at the Loews Denver are decorated in warm Italian-inspired decor, with soft golds and red accents, and have flat-screen TVs and Keurig coffeemakers. They're comfortable, if not as upscale as some four-pearl hotels downtown, and a few have dated bedspreads and decor. Bathrooms have black-and-white tile floors and granite countertops, but could use upgraded fixtures.
A small fitness center and no spa
An Italian restaurant and a bar
With lower rates than at many other Denver hotels, the Loews Denver Hotel might seem like a deal -- but be prepared to make a few compromises. The hotel is actually near Cherry Creek, a 15-minute drive from downtown, the building is older, and there's no spa. Rooms are pleasant enough, however, with warm colors and flat-screen TVs, and the lobby impresses with its rich, Italian-inspired decor.
