Four Seasons Denver

For some reason, this winter has involved a lot of travel.  There are, of course, weekend drives to Tahoe, but it seems like we have also been boarding a higher than average number of airplanes.  This week I had meetings in Denver that required an overnight stay, next week it will be Chicago.  Sometimes work travel is interesting and fun; other times it is the opposite.  This trip was not particularly interesting or fun, but was very necessary.

For those trips that I am not looking forward to, I find that having the opportunity to stay in a great hotel makes all the difference and that was definitely true this time.  I was lucky enough to stay at the Four Seasons Denver and it made the trip infinitely better.

The hotel room itself was great.  I don’t think it is the brand’s most recently-renovated property, but it is lovely nonetheless.  It is an urban space, but also had a mountain-y feel (it is Denver after all).  The decor used just the right amount of shale and earth tones but didn’t make me feel like I was in a lodge.

While I am not usually much of a fan of rock walls, it was used with restraint and worked here.

And, of course, being the Four Seasons, the room had nice amenities such as a new Nespresso machine, plush robes, and a TV built into the bathroom mirror.

The hotel is also conveniently located near Larimer Street, an area that had many nice shops and restaurants.  It was a great place to take a stroll and grab a cup of coffee before getting back to business.

My favorite part of the Four Seasons Denver was the staff.  They were all genuinely nice and helpful.  The valet went so far as to make sure that I wasn’t over-charged by my cab driver on my way in from the airport (turns out that I had been) and the employee at the reception desk went out of her way to make sure I knew of good local restaurant choices.  And, their efforts seemed so sincere that you got the feeling that they were really looking out for your best interest.  I don’t know much about the Four Seasons’ training program, but they are definitely doing something right.  I’m not sure when I’ll be in Denver again, but when I am, I hope I am lucky enough to return to the Four Seasons.
