“A Week Just Isn't Enough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

My husband and I come to Denver every year and stay at "The Grande Damme" for a professional course which is held in the hotel. We come for a week (usually coinciding with the Annual Champagne Cascade!) and simply cannot get enough of this beautiful hotel. Not only are the accomadations top-notch, but the hotel itself is so convenient: its restaurants are fabulous, its location is more than ideal (in the heart of downtown Denver, only a block away from the famous 16th street mall!), laundry services are super easy, fitness center is wonderful, the service is spot on, you name it! The hotel is built on an artesian spring, so even the water coming out of the tap -that you shower in- is like bottled water! So luxurious! And speaking of luxurious, please visit THE SPA when you're here. It's a day in heaven. Shai Albright (esthetician), as well as Haley and Ida were AMAZING! I did a facial, massage and body wrap and it was absolute perfection!

Room Tip: We've stayed in a variety of rooms here, there really is no bad choice! But if you want absolut...

I had a wonderful 5 nights at The Brown Palace Hotel in October. Rich in history (including US presidents), yet complete with modern amenities (Keurig coffee in the room for example) made the stay most pleasant. The staff were most pleasant and accommodating, I would encourage anyone travelling to Denver for any reason to look into staying at The Brown Palace. I look forward to going back!

Room Tip: The higher floors have better views.

My son and I picked the Brown Palace for it's history and it turned out to be a gem! It is within one block of the 16th St. Pedestrian Mall so it is in a great location! The room was spacious, the interior of the hotel is classy and oozes historical charm. They have Piano music in the afternoon in the atrium/bar area with tea and drinks available. They have a great old bar in the hotel and two other restaurants, but we did not get to try them out.

WE couldn't have been happier with this old hotel and it's great location!

My husband and I stayed at The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa for a business trip in October and really enjoyed the hotel. It is a beautifully restored original hotel in Denver that was within walking distance to great shopping and restaurants. The dining was excellent and they have 3 different places to eat inside the hotel. There is a piano player in the front lobby most of the time which was really enjoyable to hear anywhere you are in the hotel. We would definiately recommend this hotel for business or for couples. Not so great for kids as there really isn't anything for them to do.

Wonderfully restored classic hotel in middle of downtown Denver. Piano music in the lobby, afternoon tea, and turn down service. Excellent desk and catering service. Convenient walk to 16th Street, Capitol, Coors Field and Museums. Only negative was tiny room with large furniture and lukewarm shower water.

We enjoyed a great weekend at the Palace with another couple. The service and rooms were terrific, although our bath didn't seem to have enough hot water and a bit of a slow drain--relatively minor issues. We loved the interior decor--it's like stepping back in time, though very clean, friendly, and helpful. We were comped for breakfasts and took advantage of that. The concierge was helpful with directions and the center area is just perfect for relaxing, tea, drinks later, or even playing some cards. We'll definitely be back again.

We are so glad to ready that you and another couple enjoyed your weekend getaway with us, and we appreciate your willingness to share your experience.

We are also grateful for your taking the time to recognize the service from our concierge, and are pleased to know you enjoyed the open and welcoming environment of our Atrium Lobby.

I am sorry if any incovenience was caused by the slow drain in your guest room. We do have a preventative maintenance program in place and regret this issue was not resolved prior to your arrival.

We do hope you will come visit us again soon!
