Burnsley All Suite Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 31, 2009

The Burnsley is a 17-story landmark hotel in downtown Denver. The hotel enjoys rich history it was originally constructed as an apartment house in 1963. It gained popularity when it was made into a hotel and jazz club. Ella Fitzgerald and actor Kirk Douglas were part of a group that invested in the hotel. The European décor comes from its remodeling in 1983. Since 2005 there have been renovations.
The rooms offer private balcony that you can step onto. There is a separate living, bedroom, dining, and kitchen. The kitchen has a stove, refrigerator, plates and utensils. There is free in room wi-fi which I took advantage of
The hotel is a few blocks southeast of the capital. The Colorado Convention Center, Denver Art Museum and State Capitol are all close by. They offer complimentary shuttle service which we used. The hotel staff was excellent. We used the shuttle to go to the Bump and Grind café. The place was just about closing. The hotel staff Wyatt suggested nearby places to go to if it was dead. Those were great suggestions. We went to the tavern he suggested and had a good time there before going to the Church. In the morning the staff took us to the pharmacy to pick up some essentials. I can’t stress enough how helpful the front desk staff who are also the drivers are.
The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There is a cool lounge area is a hich we enjoyed. There is live piano Tuesday to Saturday and jazz on Friday and Saturday nights. When we were at the lounge we were entertained by a jazz singer who was really good. At times she sounded like a man to us. There is a 2 for 1 happy hour special from 4-7 PM. We enjoyed their $2 tapas while drinking. Another thing I have to mention is that they serve absinthe here. The bartender did not do the absinthe ritual properly by any of the standards. He poured the absinthe in the glass placed a sugar cube in and forgot it for awhile. He picked it up the sugar cube with an absinthe spoon and lit it on fire. He left it to burn then when it extinguished itself he put the spoon in and poured ice water in the absinthe mixture. While it was not done correctly it did taste good and formed a lute. This is one of the few places I’ve seen with absinthe so I think it is worth a mention.
