The Oxford Hotel is truly Denver's best hotel .From the excellent spotless period furnished rooms and baths to the Cruise room Lounge. The best thing about the Oxford is the entire staff, They all were engaging, courteous and a pure pleasure.

For those looking for a sense of history and feel for the old Denver - combined with a boutique hotel level of service then I would recommend the Oxford. the location is exceptional - with walking or short cab distance to major sports venues, lots of bars and restaurants - and shopping. it should be noted that the spa and fitness center are a real bonus - such a cool setup in the old building.

For many years now, when my husband and I want to treat ourselves to a Denver get-away, we book at the Oxford Hotel. Everything about this elegant old hotel is special: the rooms are quiet, spotless and beautifully appointed, the beds and pillows are comfortable, and everything works as it should (lights, plumbing, TV). On the very rare occasion that we've had a complaint, the staff has always been courteous and more than accommodating. The Oxford is also wonderfully located with the The Denver Center Theater, the Tattered Cover, and the Sixteenth Street Mall a hop and a skip away and the Denver Art Museum in walking distance. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby, and McCormick's, which can be accessed from the lobby, can't be beat for oysters and seafood.

Room Tip: We've especially liked the rooms on the higher floors overlooking Wazee Street.

Similar to the Chateau St. Michael in Miami's Coral Gables, The Oxford Hotel has no particular interest in being a business traveler's or budget hotel. The niche to which it caters is the adventuresome; guests seeking something more. And The Oxford consistently delivers.

From the incredibly historic and impeccably-maintained building (constructed in 1891) to the guest rooms lavishly appointed with authentic European antiques, to the oversized key rings you are encouraged to leave with the front desk staff upon departing the hotel, The Oxford sets itself apart.

The staff is great. The LoDo location places you within a short walk to Coors' Field, fabulous art galleries, multiple microbreweries and fantastic restaurants: Not to mention McCormick's Fish House and the best spot in town for a martini, The Cruise Room which are on site.

If you are open to the extraordinary, give The Oxford a try. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: For a small increase in price, the King Corner Suites offer king-sized beds and a sitting area.

We stayed four nights at The Oxford Hotel in December for a family wedding. This is a handsome hotel with a cozy lobby and a great variety of room shapes and sizes. Service was impeccable - very friendly and helpful. From exploring the Tattered Book Store to eating brunch at The Kitchen to catching the light rail at the nearby train station, the location was wonderful. And, if it's snowing outside, enjoy drinks at the Cruise Room. A lovely time for all.

I love the Oxford. It is a beautiful historic hotel right by Union Station. The Tattered Cover is about one block away, you can buy your Rockmount cowboy shirts across the street, and, of course, have cocktails at the Cruise Room. Great place to stay if you are downtown.

The rooms are the thing at the Oxford Hotel. Each is different, so try to sneak a peek at a few if you can. Lovely original fixtures and details such as original fireplaces. Bathrooms can range from barely-a-shower to new tubs and so on, so do inquire as to what it is you need and want. Love the old school feel of this 1891 hotel. Excellent Cruise Bar on the first floor, and breakfast (not complimentary) is excellent--don't miss the breakfast potatoes, if a bit formal. Lobby and the public areas all have the air of an older time---high ceilings, wide halls, antique furniture all give you a sense of what the hotel must've been like back in the day. Beds, however, are fully contemporary and wonderfully comfortable. A super nice stay. Looking forward to another trip down to Denver soon!

Dear guest,

I'm so glad to hear that you were able to stay with us during your business trip to Denver! It sounds like you are a big fan of many of the room's details that draw their charm from The Oxford's past. Next time you visit, check out the hinges on the doors to the guestrooms. Most of them are hardware that were original to the hotel in 1891!

When you plan your return trip, keep in mind that you can request your bathroom preference. If you are interested in the five-piece bathroom with a clawfoot bathtub, any of our premium room types have those luxurious bathrooms.

Thank you again for choosing to stay with us. We hope you return soon - maybe even for pleasure! Have a lovely holiday season!

Best regards,

Teddy
