Though we want to rave about how much we absolutely loved the Oxford, we're hesitant because we want "our" room to be available whenever we're in Denver. Our search for a historic downtown Denver hotel brought us to the Oxford. We booked online after a recommendation from our son who has frequent meetings there. The hotel is gorgeous with period furnishings and friendly professional staff. Upon arrival, valet Stuart came to open my car door - how lovely. Then at the front desk we were assisted by Tracy, who couldn't have been a more welcoming host.
Our room was on the 3rd floor corner. Beautiful, comfy bed, pillows and sheets. Immaculately clean bathroom. Room darkening curtains. And the hotel sits right in the middle of the city with easy access to public transportation and walking distance to great restaurants. We were grateful to Stuart who arranged hotel transport one evening after being exhausted from walking all day. Valet parking is available. High speed internet computers are available on the 3rd floor (not sure of other floors) as well as morning coffee on each floor. We always travel with a sound machine which drowns out any exterior noise so I can't comment on traffic noise since I never heard it.
Each evening upon our exit, the staff would inquire of our plans and sometimes add some recommendations. And when we came back in for the night, the staff always inquired if we had a nice night. We have traveled throughout the world and these are the things that make a great hotel become a memorable experience.
Our original reservation was for the beginning of our trip to Denver only. We hadn't realized that we wouldn't want to leave! Inquiries to the front desk came back with no room available for our remaining nights. But before we gave up, we saw Tracy again and amazingly, she found our room for us again. We are so very appreciative. We went off for one night and returned missing our new home-away-from-home. The Oxford kept our luggage for us and welcomed us upon our return like long lost family.
The Oxford has become one of our top 5 hotels - ever. We can't wait to go back!
