To celebrate my birthday this year Matt and I wanted to stay in Denver at a hotel we had never been to. After researching we found the perfect spot at The Crawford Hotel in Denver’s Union Station.
The Crawford Hotel was built in 2014 inside the exquisite Union Station that was built in 1881. The old charm of the station was kept and is filled with fine dining (see a list of all dinning options here) , bars, shopping and spaces to work and study. Its often a central meeting space for locals and visitors because of all of the amenities it offers.
The Crawford Hotel is located in the heart of LODO (Lower Downtown.) This area of Denver is a hot spot because of all of the things that are available to do within walking distance. The Crawford also provides free transportation within two miles of the hotel with their in house tesla service!
For a list of things to do check out the Crawford’s exclusive recommendations HERE.
We were in a beautiful king sized classic guest room that instantly welcomed us with the old charm of union station. I loved the little details that were placed in the room to keep that 1800’s classic feel. The view out our window was of the beautiful Denver landscape and the Cooper Lounge was right outside our door for easy access to food and drinks.
We loved how The Crawford was such a unique experience. Union Station is Stunning! The architecture is breathtaking and truly takes you back in time. Our room was also so quite, we were worried it would be loud with all the people in union station but we didn’t hear a sound and slept like babies!
As a special treat for my birthday I was able to visit the Oxford Hotel’s Spa another historic sister hotel located across the street from The Crawford. This spa was STUNNING! I definitely felt old Hollywood glam vibes and like I was somewhere really special.
The staff was absolutely amazing and and my massage therapist Lindsey did a winter body scrub treatment followed by a 50 min massage that felt like heaven! The spa also has a chic salon upstairs with talented stylists. I will be coming back to this spa it was a amazing experience.
The Perfect Staycation
I would highly recommend staying at the Crawford hotel. The location can’t be beat, the amenities are wonderful, the service was impeccable and the surrounding bars and restaurants are what every foody dreams of. There are many choices when looking at hotels in Denver and we are so glad we chose to stay at The Crawford in Union Station.
