When it comes to Denver hotels, there’s the good, the bad and the ugly. The ugly: a lot of boring, cookie-cutter hotels. The bad: hotels with little imagination to design, rooms and amenities. The good: these hotels below. These are easily the hotels the ones that stand out, and you can’t go wrong with their signature luxury-drenched suites. You’ll definitely want to book one of these rooms when getting your bachelor party on in Denver.
Four Seasons DenverPresidential Suite Four Seasons Hotel Denver, 14th Street, Denver, CO, United States
One of the tallest buildings in downtown Denver, the skyscraper-y, 45-story high Four Seasons Denver feels like it belongs in a bustling East Coast metropolis. There’s no other hotel that offers such amazing views of both the city and the mountains. The spa facility is a highlight, with an outdoor pool, relaxing treatments, a massive gym and unbeatable classes (the hotel’s fitness instructor and personal trainer Doug Graham used to train the Minnesota Timberwolves and Minnesota Vikings). The rooms feel residential, and the 910-square-feet, one-bedroom suites (about $700 a night) are perfect for entertaining. There’s a living area furnished with a built-in bar and a sofa bed if your crew ends up crashing. If you want to baller up, book the presidential suite ($4,000): 2,235 square feet, complete with local art, fireplaces, dedicated fitness room, a sauna and 52-inch HDTVs.
The Art HotelCapital Suite 1201 Broadway, Denver, CO, United States
In the emerging River North neighborhood (basically the “it” hood that’s the next big thing in Denver), the new, visually stunning Art Hotel doubles up as a museum with tons of art covering the walls, massive art installations and art-centric furnishings. The Capital Suite, the highest category room, is possibly the best bachelor-party friendly suite in the city. It’s pretty busy for the eyes (lots of color, shapes, lines—even the shape of the room is triangular) but huge windows drenches it in sunlight, and the outdoor balcony is one of few in the city. It’s also equipped with literally everything they can jam in possible (espresso machine, goose-down pillows, 55-inch TV, docking station, etc). It’s an affordable $629 a night, so live it up.
Ritz Carlton DenverLuxury Suite The Ritz-Carlton, Denver, Curtis Street, Denver, CO, United States
It’s all about the good life at the Ritz Carlton. There’s a pampering spa, a steakhouse, the city’s only club level lounge and tons of swagger. The AAA-Five Diamond hotel has five suites to choose from, but go straight for the Luxury Suite. It’s 2,473 square feet with a formal 10-seat dining room, a huge marble bathroom and a king bed. And did we mention you’re at the Ritz Carlton? You’re at the Ritz Carlton, guys. They don’t screw up here. The suite will set you back about 50 cent a foot ($1,200 a night, to be exact). The Ritz Carlton Suite, at 3,030 square feet ($3,500 a night), isn’t too shabby either. In addition to the size and access to the club lounge, the major perk here is the mountain view (the Luxury Suite has city views).
Hotel Monaco DenverPremiere Guest Room Kimpton Hotel Monaco Denver, Champa Street, Denver, CO, United States
Kimpton hotels are known for comfortable crash pads throughout America that treat your pet better than you (the chain is known for bending over backwards for pets). They’re mostly 3 and 4 star, but millennial-centric Hotel Monaco Denver is one of the best. With all the bells and whistles you’d expect for a luxury hotel (in addition to its playful, quirky ambience), this boutique truly delivers (also: yoga mats in rooms, 24 hour fitness center and free bikes). While it’s no Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons, the hotel’s colorful, contemporary Premiere Guest Room is perfect for a bachelor-party weekend. It’s the largest room at 850 square feet, complete with a studio-style space with sleeping sofa, 50-inch TV and awesome mini-bar. It’s also only $370 a night, so it’s a steal.
Hotel TeatroChancellor's Suite Hotel Teatro, 14th Street, Denver, CO, United States
Hotel Teatro is basically the luxury version of Hotel Monaco Denver. It’s one of the coolest hotels in Denver, definitely one of the most modern. It’s stylish as hell, and it’s one of those places you’ll find business professionals checking in next to tattooed hipsters. The best room in the house is the Chancellor’s Suite, a 1,400-square-foot playground with insanely comfortably king bed, separate parlor, wood-paneled walls, limestone fireplace and insane views of the Rocky Mountains. The rate heavily fluctuates, but expect to spend at least a grand a night.
