Four Seasons Hotel Denver
The Four Seasons is a modern hotel right in the middle of downtown Denver that works for business travelers with all the amenities a family could want. The hotel takes up 24 floors of the 45-story skyscraper, across the street from the Denver Performing Arts Complex and a few blocks from the Convention Center. The lobby is sleek and minimal, but a double-sided fireplace and warm leather furniture keeps it from feeling too cold. Guest rooms are spacious at 400 or more square feet, done in tasteful neutrals with stone accent walls, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the downtown skyline or mountains. Bathrooms have separate soaking tubs and in-mirror TV screens, and the hotel can provide humidifiers and air ionizers. Kids can expect their own tailored amenities, from games and DVDs to child-sized bathrobes to in-room tents. The extensive fitness center overlooks the pool on a landscaped terrace planted with indigenous trees. The spa has a beauty and nail salon, couples’ suites, and happy hour specials for short treatments. Signature services include a gemstone massage for altitude adjustment and a deep-tissue massage using Colorado evergreen oils for inflammation. EDGE steakhouse restaurant serves locally sourced produce and meat from Colorado ranches grilled in a pecan-wood oven. The Four Seasons is a block from the many restaurants and shops around historic Larimer Square, and the hotel will provide complimentary car service within a few miles of the hotel.
