Best Hotel Bets for Bedding Down in Romantic Style

For a city with such auspicious roots – a century before the Mile High City became trendy, it was famed for the number of bars and brothels it housed – Denver delivers in the romantic hotel department today. From modern sexy to historic romantic (and maybe even haunted) to artsy boutique there is a property for every type of couple. Many also offer really unique specials and extras that cater especially to couples. For instance, if your significant other is a beer aficionado, the best gift you can give them is the "Ex”beer”ience of the Mile High Malt Scrub and Microwbrew Massage" at the Ritz Carlton, which is likely one of the only places where you can combine beer with a spa day. While the historic luxurious Oxford Hotel offers a "Vintage Romance Package" that includes breakfast for two plus two loved themed cocktails at the hotel's wine bottle shaped bar.

So whether your idea of romance is staying downtown at the artsy boutique Hotel Teatro and incorporating a show at Denver's massive performing arts center complex into your overnight date night or you wish for a holiday from the city that's still close to town, and opt for a round of golf followed by a bottomless mimosa brunch at the Inverness Hotel, The Mile High City delivers in the romantic variety department. Here are our 10 favorites:
