Enough with the stuffy and musty Victorian B & B image. The Patterson is a unique, Chateauesque boutique-like bed and breakfast, tucked in Denver's hip, urban Capitol Hill area. I can't wait to return in the summer or fall so we can go out and explore the neighborhood's eateries or even walk downtown. We were in the Antoinette room on the first floor and were delighted with it (the most inexpensive of the rooms). The attention to details are unbelievable; the decorator did an fantastic job in coordinating each room's ambience. The use of films to inspire each room's theme is done in a clever and classy sort of way--no tackiness here! The Patterson is an immense house, but specs of dust were few and far between. We loved the plush linens, bedding, and towels. The breakfast spread was laid out buffet style, but it was a notch above a typical continental (quiche and french toast casserole were included). I always appreciate a substantial and hot breakfst--something more than I what I would do at home. The onsite hosts, Mike and Melissa, went beyond the call of duty and were clearly enjoying their roles (Mike spent over an hour giving us an insider's tour of the renovation, Melissa shared a recipe). Most B & B's are pricey anymore, and not a "cheap way to go". Still, we received so much more individual attention than one would get at an upscale hotel. It was a fun, romantic, way to have a special weekend. Plus, we were supporting an historically preserved property! This place has great potential as a venue for weddings, catered events, etc. I'm hoping it will be a success; it is a relatively new business and is finding its stride. The money spent restoring this place was phenomenal, I'm sure. Anyone staying here should appreciate that the Patterson is one more priceless mansion that has been saved from demolition.
