Check in at These Denver Hotels, Then Stroll to the Ball Game

One of the best things about Denver’s historic LoDo neighborhood, where Coors Field is located, is that it’s wonderfully walkable. On practically any block it’s possible to find a good restaurant, local brewery, craft distiller, art gallery or eclectic shops, making walking to and from the stadium a rewarding adventure even if your favorite team doesn’t hit it out of the ballpark that day. The closest hotel to Coors Field is the stylish, historic Oxford Hotel, across the street from Union Station. Other ballpark-area lodging evoking Denver’s colorful history include The Crawford Hotel, Renaissance Denver Downtown City Center Hotel and Courtyard by Marriott Hotel Downtown Denver, all housed in significant historic buildings. Among the nearby hotels are also dependable brands favored by many travelers including The Ritz-Carlton, Denver, Four Seasons Hotel Denver and The Westin Denver Downtown, which is conveniently located on the 16th Street Mall. The hotel on the list farthest from Coors Field is the quirky and charming Curtis Hotel, yet it’s still only about 11 blocks from the ballpark.

For those who don’t wish to mosey along LoDo’s streets, the free MallRide travels up and down 16th Street, dropping off or picking up baseball fans at Blake Street, just four blocks from Coors Field. And, of course, many of Denver’s most upscale hotels offer their guests the amenity of ride service to destinations within the downtown area. However you get to Coors Field and however the game ends, the neighborhood itself is always a home run.
