Four of us spent two nights at the Oxford recently. We enjoyed this unusual property along with the benefit of shops and restaurants in downtown Denver. The hotel lobby was slightly underwhelming and the dark color scheme was downright depressing. Although this color may be historically accurate, I sincerely believe the lobby could benefit from lighter colors, the better to show off the wonderful Western art on the walls. Reception desk was small but we received a warm welcome. It's startling to receive old-fashioned room keys rather than a card, but the keys worked fine! We also received complimentary water. Our party's two rooms were different: one with two queen beds was fairly large, but had a small bathroom. Another with a king was smaller, but had a huge bathroom, a fireplace and a potted plant. I LOVED the older furniture and antiques in each individually decorated room. It's just unfortunate that guests bang up lovely furnishings. Some of our furniture was slightly scuffed up. Climate control was good, beds were comfortable, linens of a high standard, and bathrooms were really nice and super-clean, with an old-style black-and-white tile décor in perfect condition. Interesting touches were antique Western prints, heavy brocade drapes from the floor to the high ceilings, and a cedar-lined closet. Some things I missed were a coffee maker in the room and a full-length mirror. Unfortunately, the mini-bar was present. Wish hotels would do away with the mini-bar concept and replace with empty refrigerator space for guests to use as they please. We eventually discovered free coffee on the second floor near the stairs, apparently available each morning. This property was fun and interesting; staff was always helpful. Others in our party enjoyed the restaurant. Check out the lighting in the Cruise Bar.
