U.S. News Review

Located in Denver's LoDo district — just blocks from Coors Field and Elitch Gardens — this boutique hotel knows luxury like the back of its hand. Rooms come decked out with beautiful wooden beds and sport a variety of tech-friendly extras, such as plasma TVs and iPod docking stations. What's more, you'll be treated to high-end perks like complimentary Lincoln Town Car and bath butler services. And if you're traveling with kids, The Oxford Hotel has you covered, providing cribs and other amenities to make your little ones feel more at home. Recent guests particularly love The Oxford's unique decor; the property feels very turn-of-the-century with four-poster beds, claw-foot tubs and silky drapes. This theme carries through to McCormick's Fish House & Bar, which serves up hearty steak and seafood entrees in a classic pub environment. The spa, on the other hand exudes a more contemporary ambiance, pampering guests amid colorful curtains and pillows.

Critic Reviews


“While parts of the hotel can feel old and stuffy (and creaky in certain spots), renovations are ongoing, slowly adding updates as needed (such as modern rainfall showers) without compromising The Oxford's rich past and historical charm.”

Condé Nast Traveler

“Rooms are on the small side, but who cares? You're hardly in them. Individually decorated in French, Victorian, and classic early-twentieth-century American decor, they're 'interesting and not carbon copies,' with claw-foot bathtubs, Chinese silk curtains, and antiques.”
