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 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. Or perhaps The Grand, Royal, Roosevelt, Reagan or Beatles Suites are more your style. The Brown Palace is just steps away from all the best nightlife, dining and attractions the city has to offer, but the suites make staying in enticing, too. In-room couple's massages, chocolate-covered strawberries, Champagne and flowers are all available upon request.
With a sweeping, unobstructed view of the Rockies, the Chancellor's Suite at Hotel Teatro 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; and 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 car service or complimentary cruiser bikes, which will get you around downtown Denver in style.
You know the saying, “Go big or go home.” But who wants to go home on their wedding night? Instead, book The Oxford Hotel’s Presidential Suite, which features a sprawling, Victorian-inspired living space with a separate sitting room, fireplaces and a clawfoot soaking tub. For something a bit cozier, consider a junior suite in this historic beauty.
Who says luxury hotels have to be solemn and serious? The Curtis in downtown Denver adds a bit of whimsical fun and nostalgia to a romantic rendezvous. Each of the hotel's 13 guest 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, with themes that are a nod to the Rolling Stones and KISS, feature breathtaking city and mountain views and extravagant amenities. If you're a couple that likes to do things out of the ordinary, The Curtis is the hotel for you.

Located in Capitol Hill, one of Denver's most historic neighborhoods, the Capitol Hill Mansion Bed & Breakfast Inn 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 other 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. Ask for the Honeymoon Package, which includes Champagne, chocolate-dipped strawberries and roses.
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. If only the best will do, reserve the Presidential Suite, with a jetted whirlpool tub for two and a private balcony with views of other elegant Victorian-era mansions.
