PROPERTY:
Great hotel. Classy, and classic - literally - it's been around FOREVER. :) That said - forget about leaving any comments about it needing updates, or remodeling, etc.....it's not supposed to be a modern, cookie cutter property. The locks and doors are period, as are some of the fixtures and accent furniture. By staying here, you're taking in the classic feeling, but with the comforts - the beds are great, the hardware (bathroom, etc.) are Kohler, and the staff is largely helpful.
STAFF:
Bell staff was awesome. Accommodating, professional, and prompt. The desk staff was pleasant and went the 'extra mile,' when we requested different pillows. Sasha searched the entire property (all closets), and even called the night clerk to inquire further as to where she might find some, however there were none (hotel was full), but the effort was much appreciated.
FOOD:
McCormick's appetizers - meh; not memorable, but overall what you'd expect.
Cruise Room - great atmosphere, but overpriced cocktails (and I'm not talking about the wonderful specialty cocktails that have their own history), but rather just the Crown-Cola at $11.
The AM coffee service on the floors is a nice touch.
OVERALL:
Great hotel, service, etc. The ONE gripe I couldn't get past was that darn recycling/garbage truck we heard at least 2 of the 3 nights at about 3 or 4am.....quite the annoyance/wake-up call (perhaps one that could be avoided/corrected).

Room Tip: -Art Deco rooms are a tad small (relatively), but comfortable. -Be sure to request a room off of the alley. Recycling truck seems to come nightly about 3-5am, and if you're a light sleeper...you WILL wake up. :) -Don't expect all of the rooms to have a 'view,' this is an older building, and of course has many sides...not all face Union Station naturally.

Dear Guest,

We are grateful you chose to stay with us and thank you for the accolades! It means a lot to our hotel to be able to uniquely combine our past with modern convenience and luxury. It turns in to quite an adventure to walk through some of our halls; we have framed some very interesting pictures that tell the story of The Oxford Hotel throughout the years. When the current owners acquired the property, they uncovered some of the original technical drawings of the hotel which are now framed and displayed for everyone!

I am sorry the early-morning garbage truck was such a nuisance and wish there was something I could do about the city’s trash schedule for that very reason. Hopefully, those comfortable beds you mentioned were able to coax you back to sleep. We hope that we will get to have you as our guest again soon!

Best regards,
Brandon Hendricks

Staff is extremely friendly and go out of their way to accommodate guests requests. The gentleman that valeted our car even drove us to a restaurant in the hotel car and picked us up so we didn't have to take our own vehicle. The rooms are beautiful, very clean, beds are comfortable and rooms very quiet. The hotel offers nice meeting rooms and a computer center and is affiliated with a spa. The location is walking distance from the train station (currently under renovation, but will re-open when tracks to the airport are completed). We stayed here twice; once before we took Amtrak to Glenwood Springs and then when we returned to Denver before flying home. This hotel is a great choice for downtown business meetings with numerous restaurants within walking distance.

Dear Guest,

We are so excited for LoDo and for Denver to have the other light rail tracks completed! With Union Station reopening, we will have even a few more choices for restaurants within walking or town car distance. Our neighborhood truly is lively. Whether you are traveling by train into the mountains, or enjoying a vacation in our dynamic part of town, we look forward to your return visit.

Best regards,

Brandon Hendricks

The place was beautiful, comfortable, clean, updated with old-world luxury charm. It's located within walking distance to everything. We even walked to the capital and the U.S. Mint. Took in a Rockies game and tried many of the great restaurants, never got in our vehicle for two days. The street at night was a little noisey, but we closed the black-out curtains and it was not bad. However, when I made this reservation I knew this was a little out of our price range, $280 a night, but I had heard parking was a real issue in the downtown Denver area and I figured it would be nice to just park the car and walk to everything. I haven't seen this in the reviews nor was I told when I made the reservation that I would be charged an additional $30 per night for parking. Be prepared to pay an additional $70 - $80 per night from the quoted price in fees, taxes, and parking. Also, a few hours after we left, I realized I left a necklace in the room. We called the hotel for several days, but it could not be found. I guess housekeeping is the same no matter how much you pay for a room or how luxurious the hotel.

Dear Guest,

We are pleased you chose to stay with us and are sorry to hear about the disappointments you experienced during your stay. I’m glad to hear that you were able to make the most of downtown Denver; several of my favorite restaurants are within five blocks and who doesn’t enjoy being at a ballgame? It’s because of all of those restaurant and attractions that downtown parking is at a premium. If you are visiting again, consider checking out one of our many package rates that include more for your Denver experience and your money. Parking is included in package rates to add to your savings.

As far as your necklace, we will check again to see if something has turned up; please let us know, too, if it turns up for you. We hope to see you back here soon!

Best regards,
Brandon Hendricks

If you want central location, personalized attention, historic and charming facilities (yet clean, clean, clean with modern convenience) - stay at the Oxford! It's got a first class restaurant, spa and martini bar(!). The staff was amazing, all went out of their way to know our names and to assist us in making our stay over the top. Would definitely go back - can walk or very short taxi ride to absolutely everything.

An informal reunion in Denver led us to the Oxford for our weekend stay. The beautifully restored 1891 hotel is comfortable and reasonably spacious. The staff is friendly and attentive and the dining room and lounge are warm and attractive gathering places. The location in lower downtown known as the LoDo District is a very active and popular part of the city and an easy walk to Coors Field where we enjoyed a Rockies game followed by a stop at one of the many roof top cafes on our way back to the Oxford. This is a nice reasonably priced hotel with amenities which I would recommend to families and friends young and old alike.

Room Tip: External rooms will have a nice view of the city if you want a vista. Internal rooms look into the center and across to another room with no view so ask if you want a room with a view.

Dear Guest,

We are so pleased we had the opportunity to be part of your Denver getaway! It sounds like you really made the most of your time in LoDo. Of course, our staff is as passionate about this area as a visitor might be! Next time you are here, ask our staff about some other fun and local activities like biking brewery tours or live, outdoor entertainment. We all use downtown in different ways and look forward to sharing new experiences with you during an upcoming visit!
Best regards,

Brandon H.
