What’s your vision of a romantic place to spend the night with the one you love? If history brings out the romantic in you, there are many possibilities. The historic and luxurious Oxford Hotel has one of the best spas in the city where couples can indulge together in renewal and relaxation. Denver also has its own castle, intimate Castle Marne with nine lavish rooms recalling the romance of the Victorian era. At the Brown Palace Hotel and Spa, romance takes on an impressive and timeless grandeur. Perhaps upscale, contemporary glam is more your style, in which case there’s the impeccable Four Seasons Hotel Denver with a sweet rooftop pool, and The ART, A Hotel, where romance is inspired by a spectacular collection of paintings, sculptures and art installations. Melding contemporary luxury and historic detail, the opulent Crawford Hotel takes its inspiration from the Golden Age of train travel and is set within Denver’s renovated Beaux Arts Union Station, able to bring out the romantic in anyone. Hot and new is romantic, too, as is clear at The Maven at Dairy Block, just opened in 2017. Here are 10 of Denver’s most romantic places to spend an evening, places that make it easy to ignite or rekindle the flames of love.
