The Ritz-Carlton, Denver

1881 Curtis St., Denver, Colorado 80202, USA

Leah Charney

Slightly off the beaten path on the north side of downtown, this spot is perfectly central. It’s a few blocks in any direction to reach the 16th Street Mall, Denver’s financial district, historic LoDo, or Coors Field. The property is ultra friendly to families, with Ritz Kids programming for travelers aged 5 to 12.

room

Rooms are spacious (550 sq. ft. or larger), with large beds and an abundance of natural light to soak in Denver’s 300+ days of sunshine. Amenities include an in-room safe, cappuccino machine, 24-hour in-room dining, and even a complimentary overnight shoeshine.

Families traveling with kids may want to add on the City Camper package and provide the littles with an in-room tent, activities, and camping-themed snacks.

gym

dining

The menu at Elway’s Downtown (yes, as in NFL Hall of Famer John Elway) is heavy on dry-aged steaks, but the sizable salads are a wonderful meal all their own. With a sidewalk patio available seasonally, the interior is decked in leather seating and an amber light wall for a cozy, almost mountain retreat, feel.

Always the perfect setting, ELWAY'S Downtown warmly welcomes your celebrations, events and business gatherings.

LOCATION

Getting Around

It’s two blocks to the 16th Street Mall, a pedestrian walkway with free shuttle service through downtown. A weekday shuttle service to Union Station (buses, trains, Amtrak) or Civic Center Station (buses) operates during morning and afternoon rush hours along 18th Street, with a pick-up around the corner from the hotel entrance. The hotel provides valet parking, or it’s easy to walk, pedicab, or find a ride-share. The nearest Bcycle bike share station is just outside the hotel at 18th & Arapahoe.

Restaurants

For more beef, but also locally-sourced and vegetarian options, check out Guard and Grace (6-minute walk). All diners, including those who are gluten-free, dairy-free, or vegan, will appreciate the offerings at Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox (4-minute walk), including a spectacular happy hour and bomb brunch. Classicists should visit Vesta (7-minute walk), a romantic favorite wowing diners and winning awards since 1997.

Bars

The rooftop deck at Tavern Downtown (7-minute walk) is a spectacular space to see a sunset or peek over at the Rockies baseball game. For whiskey and a wide selection of well drink in an Irish pub atmosphere, wander into Scruffy Murphy’s (6-minute walk). Those wishing to test out local craft brews can find freshly made beer at Jagged Mountain Craft Brewery (3-minute walk).

WHY WE LIKE IT

The Ritz Carlton, Denver is an excellent outpost from a brand known for its swank service and sleeping quarters. We love the larger standard rooms than you’ll find at other downtown hotels. Though the location is little off the beaten path from other properties, this gives visitors alternate views of Denver and a quieter overall experience. Plus, the access to a full scale gym, as well as other amenities and new restaurants opening in the adjoining building next door, can’t be beat.
