The Crawford Hotel
Newly opened in 2014 as part of the $500 million renovation of Denver's Union Station, the 120-room Crawford hotel is a sleek new addition built into the wings of the city's oldest train station. The Crawford's lobby hosts the bustling Terminal Bar (perfect for cocktails) and a slew of dining options (head to Stoic & Genuine for seafood). Each of the richly decorated rooms follows a certain theme; some pay homage to the heyday of luxury train travel, others feature exposed timber and brick. Just steps from the new train line to the Denver International Airport, the Crawford's location simply can't be beat. It's the ideal choice for anyone looking for easy access to Lower Downtown's thriving food and cocktail scene and those wanting to go car-free on vacation.
