The Maven Hotel

This boutique hotel is part of Dairy Block, a LoDo micro-district with 73,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. After cocktails at Poka Lola, Dairy Block’s soda fountain cocktail bar, visit Milk Market—an impressive food hall—and check out murals and outdoor art installations in The Alley. Catch a Rockies game at Coors Field before settling into a funky guest room with a loft aesthetic owing to high ceilings, oversized windows, and innovative décor. Feeling low-key?
