I don't think that anyone can enter this hotel without a sharp intake of breath. It, without a doubt, has one of the most beautiful lobbies I have ever seen. A gorgeous atrium area soars high to a bright stained glass ceiling, with intricate wrought iron enveloping every open floor level along the way. A lovely tea room occupies the center of the lobby, live music filters through the air, and details of great craftsmanship are seen everywhere. History permeates the place. Our bedroom, a basic king, was very nice. High ceilings, a small updated bathroom, a desk, flat screened TV, and small table and chairs make the room quite comfortable. The bed and the rain shower in the bathroom were especially good. The hotel's service was excellent all around, and our visits to the cigar bar, the Ship Tavern for lunches, and the Ellyngton restaurant (for breakfast), even a salon purchase, all were positive experiences. All around, an outstanding place to stay in Denver.
The only negative I found in this hotel was the location of the bathroom in our particular room (Room 528). It opened to the bedroom right at the bed, and a slatted wooden double door separated the two. It did not afford much privacy, and as this older building has only a passive exhaust system (no fan), some people might find it... indelicate.
Oh, and WIFI will put you back a couple bucks (about $13) each day. Silly, really, in this day and age. However, I suspect that most of the people who stay here don't mind.
Again, this was a wonderful hotel experience. A beautiful, elegant treat. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
