Visitors love property's historical charm and top-notch customer service
In-room Wi-Fi costs extra for guests without Marriott Bonvoy program memberships
Denver's landmark hotel is a hit with history buffs and luxury lovers alike. The Brown Palace Hotel in the Uptown neighborhood has catered to the city's visitors for more than 100 years, and recent guests praised the property's period accents and antiquated ambiance, as well as its premiere customer service. In fact, this lavish hotel may be a great choice for a couples getaway thanks to the romantic Victorian decor and on-site extras (like a flower shop). Meanwhile, guest rooms feature more updated decor and high thread-count linens, making the bed a cozy place to curl up with your special someone. If you're still not relaxed, indulge in one of several couples-friendly spa services or plan to spend date night at a table for two at the Palace Arms restaurant. Because The Brown Palace is owned and operated by Marriott and is part of the brand's Autograph Collection, those who take part in the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program can put points toward extra perks or free nights.

This is the historic high point of hotels in Denver. The Brown Palace's doors opened in 1892 and in the 120-plus years of continuous operation, much has stayed the same.
