Fodor's Review

Named after William Jackson Palmer, owner of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad, the General Palmer Hotel is a faithfully restored historic property with a clean, bright look as well as period furniture and Victorian touches that reinforce an old-timey feel. The library and Teddy Bear Room are quiet areas for relaxing. The beds are four-posters, brass, or pewter, and the rooms are charming without being cutesy (except for perhaps the signature teddy bear in each room). Cookies, coffee, and tea are always available in the lobby, and a Continental breakfast with homemade muffins is served daily.
