Cruise into Luxury at The Oxford Hotel :: Denver

Walk into the Oxford Hotel in Denver’s Lower Downtown (“LoDo”) and take a step back in time.

Settle into the legendary Cruise Room bar and be transported back about 70 years to the Art Deco era when architectural lines were clean and cocktails were classic. Leave the bar and cross into the grand lobby to return to the late 1800s when city-center hotels were extravagant.

The multi-era opulence is enhanced by the updated comforts and necessities for today’s travelers, including high-speed internet access, multiple telephone lines, CD players and complimentary Cadillac car services to any of downtown Denver’s galleries, boutiques, theaters, restaurants or nightclubs. McCormick’s Restaurant on the hotel’s main level offers one of Denver’s best happy hour menus; the adjacent Oxford Club Spa’s massages soothe away all the kinks from travel and some of the city’s trendiest nightspots are just a few steps away.

Guest rooms are decorated with English, French Country or Art Deco antiques and several include romantic canopy beds. The Oxford offers a wide range of first-class items and services for its guests beyond the usual 24-hour room service and nightly turn-downs. This hotel serves free evening sherry as well as morning coffee, provides complimentary access to the Oxford Health Club and discounts on Oxford Club Spa products and services (try the indulgent spa pedicure!). Valet parking and pet-friendly rooms are also available.

The Oxford has won many accolades, including being elected one of “Colorado’s Most Romantic Hotels? and being named one of the “50 Best Hotels in the World,? for good reason. The guest rooms are luxurious, the customer service generally flawless, the history fascinating. Hotel events range from hosting Denver’s International Wine Festival to holding elegant tea parties for girls and their dolls.

But the single biggest attraction for many guests and generations of local residents is the Cruise Room, which hasn’t changed since its Art Deco creation in 1933. The room, reminiscent of the bar scene with Jack Nicholson at the end of the movie, “The Shining,? was modeled after one of the lounges on the Queen Mary and opened with great fanfare the day after prohibition was repealed. The original neon lighting, deep booths and bas-relief walls just beg visitors to sit back, relax and enjoy a perfect martini.
