JW Marriott, Denver
Although the JW Marriott is located three miles outside of downtown, the hotel is still convenient to several attractions, including the upscale Cherry Creek Shopping Center. Inside, the lobby is decorated with hardwood floors, velvety blue armchairs, and brown leather furniture set beside a working fireplace. The 196 guest rooms are stylish but understated, with local artwork, marble-and-granite bathrooms, and in select rooms, panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains. The on-site restaurant, Second Home Kitchen + Bar, serves New American cuisine and creative cocktails like the Dos Flores 10, made with tequila, crème de violette, rhubarb bitters, and homemade sour.
