The Best Kid Friendly Hotels in Denver

Leah Charney | April 24, 2018

Those of us who travel with kids regularly know a hotel can make or break a trip. Thankfully, these Denver kid-friendly hotels don't treat kids as an afterthought but as guests who need amenities designed just for them. Whether you're new parents who need to adhere to nap time, expert globetrotters who want to make sure your kiddos get good service too, or well-heeled vacationers who want the very best life has to offer, these Denver hotels can give you just what you need.


JW Marriott Denver at Cherry Creek

Why it made the list

The JW Marriott Denver provides kid-sized robes, plus a neat activity pack with coloring books and a scavenger hunt, to younger guests. Parents from nearby Denver neighborhoods turn up at Social Fare, the hotel restaurant, on Sundays for the pancake breakfast.

The Curtis — A Doubletree by Hilton Hotel

Why it made the list

An excellent choice for families with late-elementary to high school aged kids, The Curtis makes our list of Denver kid friendly hotels for a few reasons. First, if the kids don't crack up at the talking elevators, salivate at the oodles of vintage candy in the lobby, or get a kick out of the themed floors, then you've got bigger problems. Guests have pool privileges at the nearby Embassy Suites and the gigantic theater complex is across the street, so everyone can find a good time.

Four Seasons Hotel Denver

Why it made the list

Give the Four Seasons a heads up that you're bringing a child or two and you'll arrive to find a room that's child-proofed for crawlers or toddlers, or been stocked with tiny bathrobes and fun, age-appropriate games and movies. If you need a night out, a babysitter can also be arranged. What could feel more kid (or parent) friendly?

Courtyard by Marriott Denver Downtown

Why it made the list

The rooms are big, compared to other properties in the same area, and the location right on the 16th Street Mall makes it easy to get to popular family destinations like the Denver Mint, Denver Art Museum, Elitch Gardens Theme and Water Park, and Coors Field, not to mention shopping at Denver Pavilions and dining at Union Station.

The Ritz-Carlton, Denver

Why it made the list

The Ritz Kids program is so cute, it makes us wish those little tents came in our size. For little campers who would enjoy s'mores and getting specialized salon services, this is a good bet for kid-friendly hotels in Denver.
