I cannot stay enough good things about Hotel Teatro. We usually go for the larger hotels (you know, the hotels with the massive Christmas trees in their lobbies in December) but will without a doubt stay at Hotel Teatro on all future trips to Denver. The staff was incredibly friendly, helpful, and professional while still providing a relaxed and calm environment. The location was also very convenient, especially if you plan to take advantage of Larimer Square’s decadent restaurant scene (which we did and you can read about here), walk to Union Station, head out to a Colorado Rockies game, or enjoy a performance at the Denver Center for Performing Arts. You can also walk to mostly mainstream shopping on the 16th Street Mall or boutiques in Larimer Square. But back to the hotel…
When entering the hotel, you walk up a slight incline to be greeted by a console table filled with wonderful old treasures and an old bike that must have seen fabulous rides around Denver. The design incorporates the old world charm of the original 1911 Denver Tramway Building as it has transformed into this beautiful hotel with modern amenities.
To the right is the front desk and lobby. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I could have spent the entire trip in the lobby. I don’t even feel as though it should be referred to as a “lobby” because it felt more like I was lounging in someone’s very, very nice library, complete with a cafe and wooden Connect Four game.
There was so much to see on the floor to ceiling shelves without it feeling like an antique store. The furniture was stylish and comfortable. I did ask for the name of the designer who had created such a spectacular setting, and the hosts behind the desk readily answered my questions, showing equal enjoyment in our design discussion. (It was designed by Studio Frank, in case you were wondering 😉 .) Just look at those coffered ceilings!
To the right of the entrance was Nickel, a long restaurant complete with an outdoor space. Again, the service was incredible, not too stuffy, not too casual. The charcuterie that we ordered was almost too beautiful to eat. We did, however, manage to try the food, and, of course, it was delicious. My husband even asked for some olives and our server readily snuck some from the bar for him. I really cannot say enough good things about our experience with the staff at Nickel and Hotel Teatro.
Doors were always opened for us. The hotel provided a complimentary car service to take guests wherever they needed to be within a 2-mile radius. Bikes were also available and running routes suggested.
The rooms were cozy, clean, and comfortable. Ours came complete with a green velvet sofa and I noticed various colored sofas throughout the hotel, which was a fun touch. On our next visit to Denver, we will, without a doubt, stay at Hotel Teatro. Did I already mention that? But back to the lobby…
I highly recommend you keep this hotel in mind for the next time you visit Denver. Coincidentally, I have a pin for that.
