Halcyon, a Hotel in Cherry Creek A modern boutique hotel located in the heart of the Cherry Creek North shopping neighborhood, Halcyon blends hipster-cool design with helpful amenities (hello, latte on arrival), modern art, and loads of style. The 154-room hotel wants to give its guests an experience, and it starts at the “kitchen counter” check-in desk with staff wearing satchels and typing on iPads. The counter doubles as a coffee bar, where complimentary beverages and snacks are served all day long. Likewise, a chic “living room” boasts a sectional couch and a mix of soothing grays, wood tones, and painted white brick. Moxy Denver Cherry Creek There’s not much that’s budget-oriented in pricey Cherry Creek, but the 170-room Moxy offers an approachable price point without sacrificing plush beds, happy hours, and cheeky style. This edgy, millennial-focused hotel in the posh neighborhood starts you off with a free cocktail at check-in—the reception area doubles as a bar—and keeps the party going with buzzy communal public spaces and playful decor. The Oxford Hotel Built in 1891 and Denver’s oldest hotel, its charming period details remain like the wood-burning fireplace, bow-tie-wearing bellmen and the 1933 Cruise Room (main picture), a red-hued temple to all things Art Deco which is shaped like a wine bottle, modeled after a bar in the Queen Mary, and features ten panels depicting “cheers” from different countries. Kimpton Hotel Born It doesn’t get more convenient than the Hotel Born, a 200-room Kimpton located in the hot Union Station neighborhood just steps away from the A-line train to the airport. Mixing plaid, wood, and rich leather furniture, the lobby feels like a modern, upscale cabin. It’s mountain chic decor distilled into a high-rise, downtown setting.
