Denver's Snob Capital

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 21, 2011

My time was spent at the Churchill Lounge only, not the hotel. After enjoying a good meal and trying to enjoy a good cigar, the lounge filled up. I was asked to move to accomodate another person fitting into the bar. The only seat left in the place was jammed behind a pillar - no view, no room to move. Bartenders need to get a clue - you don't ask someone to move seats when there are no options - it's just rude. The expectation is that you should be HAPPY to accomodate - you know - to help someone else out. If you say no, you look like a horses patoot, if you DO move, you're in a miserable location - no win. Thanks for making my last night in Denver truly a misery in order to accomodate your friends - that's customer service for you. One can only assume this is an attitude to be found throughout the hotel. Best of Luck.

Directions: Downtown

For those interested in history and who appreciate fine old things.....stay at the Brown Palace!

Unique Quality: Impressive atrium---before atriums were in style! I'm told there are definitely ghosts in residence. The food in all the restaurants is wonderful.

Directions: One block off the 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver.

I recently stayed at the Brown Palace on a business trip. Very classy, a bit posh, but as historic as it can get in Denver

I'm sure their web page will have a better history, so grab a look at theirs.

Unique Quality: This historic fixture cannot be missed if you visit Denver. Please explore the hotel, look up in the lobby toward the stained glass, look out on the socialites having tea and chocolates, ask the desk staff and they'll tell you everything you care to know about their palace. Try the food in one of their restaurants if you have the time and dress, it's wonderful!

Directions: Northwest corner of Broadway and 17th

Denver's oldest hotel

by written on March 11, 2003

Hotel has a 9 story lobby with a stained glass ceiling, 230 rooms and 4 restaurants, one of which has won an award from Wine Spectator.

Unique Quality: Brown Palace, not shown in the photo, opened in 1892, is Denver's oldest hotel. Upon opening, it was advertised that the hotel had every feature that could be desired by anyone staying at a hotel. Brown Palace featured a private library, bowling alley and billard tables. There is also a crematorium built into the basement of the hotel. There is no record that anyone used it and it was apparently eliminated as a result of remodeling in 1923.

This is the most top of the line exquisite hotel in all of Denver.

Unique Quality: Located in the heart of downtown Denver, this hotel rolls out the red carpet for all guests. The best foods, best services, plenty of high quality suites.

Can't remember--my company paid! I think it's in the mid $200s though.

Unique Quality: Wonderful old style hotel with beautiful rooms. I used to stay here when I lived in San Francisco and would come here for business.

Unique Quality: For those who want to experience the finer side of Denver and expect to be pampered when staying in a hotel, then this is the place. One of the oldest buildings in Denver, it has been called home to several of the rich and famous, including President Eisenhower and the Unsinkable Molly Brown. Inside, the stain-glass ceiling and enormous crystal chandelier are the calling cards for the hotel. I truly enjoyed the Churchill Room - a cigar room where you can have a smoke and try one of their many fine single malt scotches.
