The Holiday Chalet is a gorgeous albeit old victorian mansion turned B&B. Located on edgy gritty Colfax Avenue at High Street - superb launching site for an urban adventure. Within walking distance of the Fillmore, the Bluebird, Twist and Shout, Tattered Cover, Botanic Gardens, the Zoo, the Museum of Nature and Science. Just a short sometimes B-movie-esque bus ride to...

We reserved a room for three nights. When we arrived, they said they had been having problems with double-booking and they had us down for only one night. To stay three nights, we would have to move from one room to another each day, for a total of three different rooms. We went elsewhere.

I don't usually write reviews but feel like this time it is important. First of all, this place looks nothing like the pictures inside or out. We did not get the room I initially booked but was charged for. They were going to give us the room for part of our stay but we would have had to change rooms...never... More

This B&B was lovely, but felt bad that they were in a part of Denver with a lot of homeless and not-so-upstanding people. We felt safe enough in the guesthouse, but not so much outside at night. During the day it was fine! Even walked all the way to Coors field and back (day game - wouldn't have thought of... More

Was initially put off by Colfax ave, but as soon as we turned on High St and walked to the park it was like we were in a different world. Our second floor room was very adequate for our needs, and the courtyard was private for our brief encounter with smoking. Close to the Botanical Gardens, the zoo and Museum... More

The Holiday Chalet is a beautiful B&B. I stayed on the third floor, in addition to my room with a full kitchen, I had a beautiful sitting area of the house adjoining my room. The sitting area had a piano, bookshelves, 2 rocking chairs and 1 sitting chair. The neighborhood on Colfax Ave. itself is abit rundown, but do not... More

We love Victorian homes and older neighborhoods, so Holiday Chalet was right up our alley. Our check in staff was nice and accommodating. She listened to what we wanted to do and recommended The City Park and Pete's Diner. We enjoyed both. We loved the charm of the house and would come back the next time we are in Denver.... More

As stated in the title, this bed and breakfast does not look like the outside photo at all. We actually drove past it looking for something like the photo shown on the website. The bed and breakfast itself is very quirky and there is quite a menagerie of items decorating the place. The room was large and accommodating, however it... More

Decided to arrive Denver a day early and was looking where to stay. My wife found this on TripAdvisor about 2 hours out and called them as we needed 2 beds for our family of 4. They had it and we booked it. Street parking (we had no problem). Good internet. Beautiful patio. A great vegetarian restaurant near by. Walking... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel is a fully-restored Victorian, brownstone mansion originally built in 1896 for prominent Denver jeweler Henry Bohm of Bohm Jewelers. Elegant period décor along with high ceilings, hardwood floors, intricate moldings, private baths and kitchens make us Denver's most alluring and comfortable bed and breakfast. From our eclectic Capitol Hill location visitors enjoy Denver's best sight-seeing, shopping, music, art, and nightlife all within minutes of our front door-the neighborhood described in the Jack Kerouac classic, On the Road. The Holiday Chalet enjoys the benefit of an exciting, high-energy central location within the vibrant heart of the city amid an eclectic mixture of shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues. The creative spirit in our neighborhood appeals to artists, architects, designers, writers and musicians alike. However, enveloping warmth, charm, comfort, and security within the hotel also make The Holiday Chalet a convenient home away from home for business and leisure travelers alike. As a Bed and Breakfast we begin each morning in true style with a full, home-cooked breakfast served from 7:30 to 10:00 am. A variety of delicious homemade offerings are made fresh including Cowboy pancakes, crustless veggie or bacon quiche, French toast, eggs and bacon, fresh fruits, juice, tea, and premium coffee. ... more   less
