“Great LoDo hotel”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

Large comfortable beautifully furnished room. Updated bath. Cool martini bar. McCormicks serves good breakfast. Very convenient to ballpark and 16th St Mall. Staff quite nice.

Once again, had an incredible experience staying at the Oxford Hotel and did not want to leave. From the friendly door man, to the welcoming lobby... to the food. I am a service snob but was only pleased with my stay. The cruise room desserts and cocktails were a very pleasant discovery since I did not try it last time. I expected good but got great. I need to point out that the bartenders working on the evening of 6/2 were exceptional - they carried themselves with class but were nothing but friendly and had none of the entitled attitude of certain other 4-5 star places. I love this place and did not want to go home. Frankly, you could charge more for this place!

Room Tip: it is worth the extra money for an upgrade to a corner room or suite

Hi!

A friend of mine brought me to The Cruise Room tonight. She loves The Cruise Room and it was my first visit. I fell in love with the ambiance, history and atmosphere. The cocktails were outstanding. I am "in the business," and I have to say that for everything you have going for you the true point of differentiation was the service. Our server was Kim, and she was fantastic. She was always available, but never intrusive. She had great recommendations and also made sure we knew whatever we chose was going to be great. She was witty and charming without interjecting herself into our experience other than to make sure it was great and that we were comfortable. Kim was subtle when she needed to be and engaging when appropriate. Kudos to The Cruise Room and to Kim. I will come back again not only for the atmosphere, but also in hopes that Kim will be my server again. Please make sure she knows she was appreciated tonight!

Thanks,
Andrew

My husband and I chose The Oxford for the history and location, but we were disappointed in the check-in service and room service. In fact, when we called for room service, we were told someone would have to call us back later. The staff in general was not overly friendly or helpful. The downtown location was fantastic and it was an enjoyable walk to Pepsi Center. Both The Cruise Room and McCormick's offered convenience and great atmosphere, but we were again disappointed in the service.

Great hotel very convienent to Rockies stadium, 16th st mall, Pepsi center just a short cab ride away. Excellent service from front desk to the doormen. They have complimentary town car that will take you anywhere withing a couple miles downtown. Get the crab bisque at McCormicks and try their happy hour!

We stayed at the Oxford for 5 nights, and loved the location in the center LoDo with easy access everywhere, the car service and staff were very pleasant. The Cruise Room, is a wonderful vintage bar, and we enjoyed sipping classic cocktails amongst art deco loveliness.

However....the room left a LOT to be desired for the high price tag. The king bed was a high creaky, four postered bed, which blocked the view of the TV and was overall not luxurious and comfortable, and the sheets felt itchy. A big disappointment, would return to the bar, but would not stay at the hotel again unless the rooms were redone.

We stayed at the hotel for a few days on our way to Vail to ski. We wish now that we had done this years ago as part of our annual ski holiday. Firstly the hotel simply exudes history. From walking into the lobby with its antique oil paintings, old world charm and chandeliers to having a pint of ale and a cheeseburger in the big, airy saloon bar, we felt were observers of days gone by. The restaurant still has the original partition which was used to section off the room during prohibition.
Our room was splendid. A huge bed flanked on either side by antique furniture and two large windows framed by heavy Victorian style drapes. The ensuite bathroom with bath on legs, was beautifully finished and echoed the past yet provided modern conveniences. The food was very good in the bar and in the restaurant. However, the surroundings, atmosphere and service are probably the most memorable aspects of our . If you are looking to step back in history for a while and like good food in a comfortable and laid back environment then this place really hits the spot.
