Back in May, I treated myself to a pre-birthday gift and travelled solo to Denver for a concert at the Ogden Theater. The Holiday Chalet is in prime location for walking to most of the downtown music venues. (I walked to and from the Ogden for my show.) That being said, I am a woman in my early twenties traveling...

My husband and I booked a room for 6 nights the week prior to Memorial Day. Although the Inn is charming and the staff exceptional, the location was less than desirable. The Inn is adjacent to a bar and there is a public bus stop across the street. The first afternoon we were there, I watched a drug deal taking... More

We stayed at holiday chalet in April 2014. Room was big, clean and great value. Location - while a little seedy but not unsafe in my opinion - is close to the city centre so easy to get everywhere. There was also all day parking on the side street right outside the hotel. The breakfasts were great - in particular... More

I had a great time staying here- the neighborhood can get a bit shady at night but the hotel is safe. It is close to the 16th street mall a $10 taxi ride- The breakfast is great! I do recommend the cowboy pancake. The place has history- comfortable beds as well and spacious rooms.

I trundled myself into The Holiday Haven for a couple of days of focused writing (I'm an author) and meetings with bookstores. The inn is beautifully restored and really IS a haven from the hustle & bustle of the E. Colfax area. The staff is welcoming, friendly, and helpful, and best of all, they are DOG FRIENDLY. I brought my... More

This is my favorite place to stay in Denver, it's close to everything and even includes a wonderfull homemade breakfast. The staff is awesome and provided world class service. I travel to Denver about six times a year and look forward to my stay at the Chalet!

I recently held my book signing (STILL LIFE IN BLOOD by Crystal Heidel) at The Holiday Chalet B&B and the staff was so wonderful! Scott, the manager, recommended an awesome little place to eat, Vine Street Pub, just several blocks away. The B&B, owned by the lovely and quirky Crystal Sharp, is near or within walking distance of everything fun... More

The breakfast are was artsy and the good was good. The vibe is colorful and the accommodation is very interesting a tribute to the owner Crystal. But it is really really hard to sleep in rooms that face Colfax. The area is poor but we did not have any problems.

Super precious... and I didn't even stay there. My friend had a room there for her last night in Denver. The place felt safe and was so cute! The room had lots of historical charm and you could stay there for several days with the efficiency kitchen. The lady that let us in was very sweet and helpful.
