Four Seasons Hotel Denver Rating: 5.0 Pearls
The Four Seasons' central location, attentive staff, and ultra-luxurious rooms make it one of Denver's top hotels. It offers all the features you'd expect from a property of this caliber: a year-round, heated outdoor pool, large fitness center, and upscale spa. The decor blends the sleek sophistication of a luxury chain with subtle Colorado influences.
The Ritz-Carlton, Denver Rating: 5.0 Pearls
The 202-room, sophisticated luxury property has a prime downtown location, upscale rooms that are the largest in Denver, and a popular steakhouse. The large spa is first-rate, as is the privately-owned fitness club, which guests can access for free. Only the Four Seasons and Brown Palace Hotel can compare.
Hotel Teatro Rating: 4.5 Pearls
This 110-room luxury boutique, located in a historic building across the street from the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, has sophisticated (if smallish) rooms, two of the city's best fine dining restaurants, a grand marble lobby, and theatrical costumes displayed on the walls. But it lacks some amenities you'll find at larger luxury properties, including a spa and pool.
The Oxford Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls
The Oxford is one of Denver's most notable historic hotels, ideally located in the lively LoDo neighborhood and in close proximity to area hot spots. Many of the 80 individually decorated rooms include luxe touches like claw-foot bathtubs, pillow-top mattresses, or bath butler service. Modern updates like free Wi-Fi, iPod docks and flat-screen TVs are standard, but some guests have found some of the room styles to be a bit stuffy and outdated. Despite the lack of a pool, the hotel offers ample entertainment with its beautiful two-story spa and The Cruise Room Bar, Denver's oldest bar.
Hotel Monaco Denver - A Kimpton Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls
This upscale boutique delivers all the fundamentals of the Kimpton chain: bright, quirky decor, a free nightly wine hour, and an open-arms pet policy. The day spa, which is recognized as one of the best in Denver, has a wonderful menu, including treatments for couples, and rooms are stylish, with 37-inch flat-screen TVs. The colorful lobby is one of the most unique in Denver.
