“Amazing and Pet Friendly”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

My husband and I go to Glenwood Springs about once a year to treat ourselves, and have previously stayed at other hotels in the area. I have known of The Hotel Denver for a while, as it is located central to downtown and right across from the train station. After hearing rave reviews from a coworker of mine, we decided to look into staying at a new place. We were planning on bringing our six month old golden retriever, and the pet deposit for where we normally stay in town was crazy! Once we saw the Hotel Denver was pet friendly with NO pet deposit, we were sold. I booked an interior room that faces into their large lobby. The lobby is clean, well lit, and has an outdoor patio/courtyard feel with dark wood and antique accents. From the pictures on the website I was not expecting much, but the interior was BEAUTIFUL. When we arrived however, we were upgraded to a room with an exterior view of the mountains and the river (room 305). It had two queen beds, rather than one (which we had booked) but the room was bigger and we had no issue with the extra space, or the view of town. The room was recently redone with refinished wood floors, big screen tv, Kurig in the room, and antique accents and furniture. Very charming and very clean. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. The staff was the most helpful and friendliest of any hotel I have ever stayed at, and it set the scene for the whole stay. It is a block from the shops and restaurants downtown, and walking distance of the hot springs. Free parking, great bar attached, and across the street from our favorite eatery, The Pullman. The hotel also offers breakfast bars, apples, bottled water, and coffee in the lobby every morning. Free internet, and a library space for work.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the train station may have some noise pollution

Great staff, quiet, well-appointed rooms, convenient location!

We got engaged in Glenwood Springs 28 years ago and have returned once or twice a year since. This is my favorite hotel in Glenwood; it's got history, comfort, nice decor, and responsive staff. It also now has a brewery with good bar food housed in the same building. I asked for a quiet room for a recent milestone birthday, and they gave us a corner room - perfect. The decor comprises wonderful antiques with bare wooden floors. It's older construction, so the heating fan was noisy, bothering my husband, but not me. The room was spacious with two sleep-worthy queen beds, flat screen TV, two desks, a sofa and coffee table, plenty of storage room, small dining table, Keurig coffee maker, a microwave and fridge. The bathroom had two separate sinks, mirrors, and a tub; lovely tiling.

The hotel is right across the street from the train station, and is a perfect place to stay for someone traveling by rail. A block away is the footbridge across the Colorado River, paralleling the street bridge, providing easy access to the main attraction of Glenwood, the Glenwood Springs' thermal pool, now known as the Glenwood Springs Spa of the Rockies. We went there twice during our three-day stay, purchasing discounted tickets from the Hotel desk. They also provided us with large, plush bath towels - which one must otherwise rent at the pool. The hotel is within a block or two of the more popular restaurants in town, as well as unique shops.

The in-room coffee is great, but you can also go downstairs mornings to a sideboard with coffee, tea, apples, granola bars, and biscotti.

Need advice, directions, or have room questions? There is no better staff to help you out, and they are always warm and friendly.

For a unique boutique: stop by the Mona Lisa on the ground floor.

We were especially impressed with Roxy at the front desk. She was very helpful, welcoming and friendly. She really takes an interest in her guests and their comfort. She very much added to our enjoyment while we were there. The rooms were pleasant and unique, with exposed brick walls, antiques and nice views. We will certainly return.

Stayed here with a friend who traveled all the way from Japan to experience the best of Colorado -- we toured the whole state in ten days, and the best move was starting off with a couple nights at the Hotel Denver, in a top-floor room with lovely valley view.
It was my second stay here, and I must say I like the tasteful way they've done their updating while preserving and continuing the rich and interesting history -- and the talk of ghosts is positively thrilling, because...well, you'll see -- I mean, hear... Seriously, I am not joking...
The staff is wonderful, helpful, friendly, and fabulous, and with the Hot Springs an invigorating walk across the river bridge, great dining options everywhere nearby -- including the BrewPub and Restaurant connected to the hotel on the first floor, there's simply no way to go wrong here!

Room Tip: Top floor old corner room if you want to and can handle the idea that some energy may live on past b...

One of the best front desk staffs I've encountered in awhile, as we were checking out and heading over to the hot springs, Roxie offered us a pool towel to take along. We had to return them, of course, but it's not often you encounter someone with that level of hospitality. Very impressed.
The room was comfortable, the hardwood floors beautiful. Bed was cozy but big, and the stained glass window was nice.
Coffee, fruit, and granola was a nice touch in the morning - particularly since the hotel does not advertise offering a breakfast.
Great beers and food at the brewpub.

We'll be back.

Glenwood Springs is an upbeat mountain town and Hotel Denver is just the place to stay to enjoy the vibe here. It is perfectly located on the river and in the center of town. Walking distance to lots of great restaurants and shops.

The interior is a mix of historical and Scandinavian decor with lots of exposed brick. It definitely has a boutique feeling to it.

Adjacent is the Glenwood Canyon Brewpub where we enjoyed a delicious dinner and handcrafted brew.

The bedrooms are large, clean, nicely decorated with comfy beds and soft sheets. I highly recommend the suite is staying with children. In the morning they serve hot beverages and breakfast snacks.

They offer a green discount and have superb service and restaurant recommendations.

A must if in this area. Less than one hour from Aspen.

We rode the train from Denver up, the hotel is right across from the hot springs pool, a couple of blocks from downtown restaurants and shopping. You do not have to have a car to spend the weekend in Glenwood unless you would want to travel the hills. It was a wonderful time. We will be back! :)
