Stay with Inspirato in our hometown of Denver at one of our luxurious partner hotels. The Halcyon Hotel, an upscale boutique hotel in the posh shopping hub of Cherry Creek, offers hors d’oeuvres, fresh breakfast, coffee, and a glass of wine, beer, or a cocktail upon arrival. The hotel’s Gear Garage offers adventure equipment for rent—like Vespas, bikes, longboards, and GoPros—perfect for exploring the Mile High City and the Rockies beyond. Nestled in the heart of downtown, the Thompson Denver is a vibrant boutique hotel located in LoDo, close to the city’s top attractions, landmarks, and activities.
The largest city between the Pacific Ocean and Great Plains, Denver is known for its outdoorsy lifestyle, laid-back locals, and urban amenities—like museums, theaters, nightlife, sports teams, and elevated cuisine. The Mile High City is a convenient homebase for exploring the Rockies, but there’s plenty to do right here. Go for a bike ride along the South Platte River, learn about the state’s mining history at the Colorado History Center, or take in a play at the Denver Center for Performing Arts. No trip to Denver would be complete without a stop at Wynkoop Brewing Company in the heart of Lower Downtown. The state’s oldest brewpub dates back to 1988.
One of the world’s most famous natural amphitheaters, Red Rocks is a must-see for any summer visitor to Denver. Tour the museum and learn about the legends who’ve performed live here, take in a show, or even attend a movie screening.
Lower Downtown—or LoDo—is Denver’s historic center. The 120-year-old, recently renovated Union Station is a hub for dining and shopping. Elsewhere here, you’ll find brewpubs, coffee houses, shops, and charming Larimer Square.
A top-ranked botanical garden on 24 acres near the heart of downtown, Denver Botanic Gardens offer an incredibly scenic spot to stroll. Admire a wide range of flora from all over the world, as well as water gardens and more.
Famous for having 300 days of sunshine annually, Denver's climate is fairly mild compared to towns in Colorado’s high country. Summers are hot, with temperatures regularly reaching the 90°F in July and August. Winters are snowy, but not frigid—it’s not uncommon to have warm, 50-degree days sporadically throughout winter. Both spring and fall are mild, though spring snowstorms occur quite frequently. Denver’s sunny climate and relatively high elevation means the snowfall always melts quickly.
