This beautiful property features warm woods, elaborate glass fixtures, and luxurious details, and the pampering service is typical of the chain. The location is good—it's only two blocks from the 16th Street Mall—but the Ritz makes it tough to leave your room, with its buttery leather furniture, featherbeds, oversize baths, and espresso machines. The state-of-the-art fitness center is complimentary; the spa is almost too pretty and has a full-range of treatments emphasizing
natural products. The club-level rooms start at an extra $200 per night and garner five food offerings throughout the day as well as a dedicated business center. Elway's restaurant ($$$)—one of three outposts of the original in Cherry Creek—serves superb steaks and seafood.
