Our team was recently able to stop by Denver’s trendiest luxury hotel to check out their hotel suites: The Crawford Hotel. The Crawford Hotel is a boutique hotel with a truly unique concept. Located in the heart of the Denver Union Station, this hotel is full of surprises. If you’re looking for the best hotel suites in Denver, you’ll want to start your search here.
The lobby itself is located in the station, shared with passenger and the public, along with surrounding business and shops – more to come on that! While the hotel is located right within the train station, we were surprised to find that the hotel rooms and suites are very quiet.
Rated at 4 stars, we found the hotel was unique and lots of fun with easy access to local business and restaurants. When it comes to amenities, this is not your average luxury hotel where you can lounge around in the lobby, get a fancy facial at the spa, or relax at the pool. The Crawford is truly an urban hotel with a twist.
If you’re planning a cross country trip on Amtrak or simply just want a hip hotel for an urban stay, the Crawford hotel would be the perfect stopover. While the hotel does carry a destination fee, staying at the Crawford will allow for many benefits and local discounts which can more than even out the fee, namely:
- Free delicious ice cream at Milkbox
- Tesla courtesy car service for local trips within 2 miles
- A free craft beer at bar during happy hours
- A free coffee from PigTrain Coffee Co.
- A reservation at the local hot brunch place, Snooze: an AM Eatery (located within the building)
- … and many others benefits
Outside of the lobby, the Cooper Lounge, located on the second floor, is a wonderful bar which has been rated among the best cocktail bars in the country. The decor itself is worth a look, reminiscent of another era of luxury travel by train. The lounge is a chic and quiet spot overlooking the humming busy station lobby.
When it comes to hotel suites choices, this Denver hotel offers unique layout but the room are on the smaller side. The Deluxe Loft offers high ceilings, beams and a larger space.
The Premium Loft provides a large space with a clever use of furniture to split the room between sleeping quarters and living space, but as its indicates, in true spirit of a loft, this is an open floor plan.
The Lodo Suite offers a large bathroom with a deep soaking bathtub and separate shower, a separate living space, and timber beams for a unique look.
As a whole, the Crawford hotel is a great place to stay in the heart of Denver. Recommended.
