The Ritz-Carlton, Denver
The Ritz-Carlton has an earned reputation for luxury, and its Denver outpost offers a relaxing oasis from the bustle of the city with some of the largest hotel rooms—more than 500 square feet—in town. High-end linens, featherbeds, and marble baths come standard, and the navy, cream, and dark-wood decor lets the city and mountain views take center stage. The in-house Elway's restaurant—named for the famous Broncos quarterback—is an easy option for hand-cut aged prime steaks, happy hour, and cocktails, and the property even has two Tesla car charging stations. The spa is one of our favorite places to indulge in Denver (try the city's only Vichy shower as part of the Waterfalls treatment), and guests also have access to the adjacent 52,000-square-foot TruFit Fitness Club. Splurge a little and add Club Level access to your room; the dedicated concierge, wine, snacks, and continuous food options are worth it.
