Great Honeymoon Suites
For those lucky romantics willing to splurge, The Mile High City has more than a few options.
From sweeping mountain views to old-world luxury, the honeymoon suite is all about indulgence (and room service, of course). Be careful, though; once you and your sweetheart have checked into any of the suites described below, you may never want to check out.
The Brown Palace Hotel & Spa
321 17th St.
The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa lives up to its regal name with the lavish Eisenhower Suite. Named for the hotel's most frequent presidential guest, Dwight D. Eisenhower, the 1,250-square-foot suite spoils you with spacious living, dining and sleeping areas, as well as extravagantly-appointed 1 ½ baths. The Brown Palace is just steps away from all the best nightlife, dining and attractions the city has to offer, but the Eisenhower makes staying in enticing. In-room couple's massages, chocolate covered strawberries, champagne and flowers are all available upon request.
The Hotel Teatro
1100 14th St.
With a sweeping, unobstructed view of the Rockies, the Hotel Teatro's Chancellor's Suite can't be beat when it comes to pure visual splendor. Cuddle up in front of the limestone fireplace; enjoy the warm, wood-paneled walls; sink into the comfy, modern European furniture, covered in elegant damask fabrics; take a long soak in the Indonesian marble- and sandstone-finished bathtub. And when you're ready to hit the town, take advantage of the hotel's local Cadillac Escalade car service, which will ferry you around downtown Denver in style.
The Oxford Hotel
1600 17th St.
Romance is always in the air at the historic Oxford Hotel in downtown Denver - but things are turned up a notch or two around Valentine's Day. The hotel's "XO At the OX" package offers couples a night they won't soon forget, complete with a complimentary CD of handpicked love songs, a book of starry eyed poems, chilled champagne, rose petal turn-down service and overnight valet parking. Take your pick from one of the Oxford's unique suites, designed in either Art Deco or Victorian style.
The Curtis - A Doubletree By Hilton
1405 Curtis St.
Who says luxury hotels have to be solemn and serious? The newly redesigned Curtis in downtown Denver will add a bit of whimsical fun and nostalgia to your romantic rendezvous. Each of the hotel's 13 guestroom floors is built around a different pop culture theme, from the Star Wars-centric Sci-Fi floor to the rockin' Mad About Music floor. The Curtis' two luxurious master suites boast hip retro design, breathtaking city and mountain views and extravagant amenities. If you're a couple who like to do things out of the ordinary, the Curtis is the hotel for you.
The JW Marriott
150 Clayton Ln.
Honeymooners will feel right at home in the JW Marriott's expansive, 1,720-square-foot Presidential Suite, with its private bar, plush seating area and intimate dining room. The suite's two bathrooms are the epitome of style and elegance, boasting a sumptuous four-piece marble master bath with a separate glass shower. Throw in a walk-in closet, a butler's pantry, a 42" flat screen TV and - of course - a stunning view of the Rocky Mountains and you'll probably be ready to move into this Cherry Creek hotel permanently.
818 17th St.
The Magnolia in downtown Denver knows how to treat the lucky-in-love. Their "Romance at the Magnolia" program is the perfect package for honeymoons, anniversaries, or simply a spur of the moment amorous getaway. You'll stay in a luxurious one-bedroom fireplace suite, lounge about in plush signature Magnolia his and hers robes, enjoy complimentary cocktails in Harry's Bar, sip chilled champagne and fall asleep very, very happy. Starting at just $239 per night, per couple, "Romance at the Magnolia" is appealing in more ways than one.
1717 Champa St.
The Mediterranean Suites at downtown Denver's Hotel Monaco are boldly designed, luxuriously furnished and, you can be sure, extremely romantic. With large windows that wrap around half the room, you and your loved one will be treated to a bird's-eye view of the glittering cityscape. You'll also love spending some quality time in the oversized jetted Fuji soak tub. If you're a couple whose love of music matches your love for each other, the Monaco has suites devoted to rock and jazz legends such as John Lennon, Miles Davis and Grace Slick.
Capitol Hill Bed & Breakfast
1207 Pennsylvania St.
Located in one of Denver's most historic neighborhoods, the Capitol Hill Bed & Breakfast is one of the city's most beloved B&Bs. Honeymooners favor the Shooting Star Balcony Room, which occupies the building's classic Victorian turret and boasts a balcony with a view of the area's grand old mansions. The room also features a lovely floral mural above the headboard of the queen-size bed, as well as a whirlpool tub.
1572 Race St.
Take a romance-filled trip back in time by checking into downtown's Castle Marne, a truly grand 1889 mansion that's been lovingly restored as one of Denver's finest bed and breakfasts. Each room is unique, combining Victorian décor with modern amenities - but if only the best will do, reserve the Presidential Suite and ask for the Honeymoon Package. A vase of freshly picked roses greet you upon arrival and the private balcony will provide the perfect setting for a romantic interlude. A six-course candlelight dinner for two is served on-site; on your second night you'll be whisked away to a nearby meal at the historic Fort Restaurant. Finally, relax and enjoy the jetted whirlpool tub for two.
