This boutique, luxury hotel is perfect for a romantic getaway—swank enough so a partner knows pampering is on the agenda, but not sopricy that stress levels start talking. Located inside the former 1917 Railway Exchange building, the hotel is full of color, thanks to unique artwork and a whimsical design. The guest rooms, which were updated in 2010, are bold but tasteful with modern décor and punches of vibrant color. Tourists bringing a furry companion on the trip are in luck- pets stay complimentary and receive treats and in-room bowls. Before heading out the door to explore Denver’s nightlife or for a fancy dinner, remember to swing by the lobby between 5 and 6 p.m. for complimentary red and white wine and appetizers from Panzano that are well beyond cheese and crackers. There is even an on site masseuse to offer complimentary neck and shoulder massages.
When it comes to unique amenities, Hotel Monaco chalks it up. Accomodating staff are on-call to bring a goldfish by for some additional company. Explore the city via a a complimentary bicycle rental. For fuel along the way, grab a picnic lunch from Panzano and pedal to a nearby park. Yoga mats are also provided in rooms so travelers can find Zen before calling it a night.
