Located exactly where you want to be in Denver, Colorado, Hotel Teatro occupies the cornerstone of the city's theater district. This downtown enclave sits in a restored century-old building originally built in the early 1900s as the Denver Tramway Building, and is now restored with careful efforts taken to preserve original touches like marble flooring and wainscoting. Its central location allows for an easy walk to the best of Denver's cultural offerings—the Denver Performing Arts Center and Colorado Convention Center provide a meeting place for musicals, ballets, and symphony performances; Coors Field and the Pepsi Center house some of the city's best athletic events; and the 16th Street Mall boasts local boutiques and street performers showcasing their best acts. The only problem with Hotel Teatro is getting yourself out of the hotel itself.
Taking a nod from its surroundings, Teatro's décor is a whimsical bow to the arts, featuring masks and playbills as wall art plus ornate furniture and rich fabrics reminiscent of a grand opera house. Suites feature Indonesian sandstone foyers and wood salvaged from Italy and Guatemala. And each of the 109 rooms is outfitted with oversized soaking tubs, rainforest showerheads, and Aveda bath products. A blissful night's sleep comes easily on Simmons Beautyrest mattresses that sport cashmere pillow-tops and memory foam, topped with 600 thread-count sheets and luxurious down comforters. Plasma-screen TVs, Frette terry robes, and complimentary nespapers delivered daily to your front door serve as additional amenities to make your stay homey.
Downstairs, adjacent the hotel lobby, is Restaurant Kevin Taylor, a fine-dining establishment that has received the AAA Four Diamond award for eight consecutive years, quite an honor in the culinary world. Nosh on specialties like Roast Bison Strip Loin with Root Beer and Cumin Braised Short Rib and Butter Poached Lobster, a seasonal artisan cheese selection, or a la carte items like Grilled Onion and Pale Ale Soup and Seared French Foie Gras. After your meal, walk, or waddle, outside the hotel's double-door entrance, and take in the Mile High City's Rocky Mountain backdrop.
