    Imagine yourself a person of means during the 19th Century and you've just taken a long, tedious train ride across the Great Plains to see Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. Imagine where you would want to stay as you walked out of Union Station. The Oxford Hotel is that place. A stately red-brick edifice in sight of the train station, the Oxford has a distinct Victorian feel on the inside with plush draperies, wood paneling, chandeliers, clawfoot bathtubs--the works. The only downside is it's $250 a night, but hey, enjoy the best that the West has to offer!

    The Oxford Hotel is one of those places you want to love: It’s historic (it opened in 1891, making it one of oldest hotels in town), it’s located in the thick of the action downtown, it’s got a killer view of the landmark Union Station, and it houses The Cruise Room, one of the best martini bars in town (my favorite bar in Denver, in fact). The lobby also is wonderful—opulent but not ostentatious, with early 20th century antiques, deep leather seats, and huge oil paintings depicting the old west. But the charm, at least for me, ends at the guest rooms. Most are decorated in early 20th century style, clearly to remind you of the hotel’s history. And though it accomplishes that, it also just makes it feel old. As in, how long have these curtains been here? And when was the last time this rug was changed? It’s not like it screams dirty, but it just kinda feels stuck in time. It also gave me a little bit of the creeps. I guess if you’re into turn-of-the-century ambiance (albeit with updated bathrooms and good lighting, and yes, flat screen TVs and iPod docks), this might be a good fit. As far I’m concerned, I’m sticking to the bar.

    Stayed here for one night. A lot of old fashioned and swanky decor. The lounge downstairs was nice too. Hotel staff was helpful again, I would definitely return

    The Oxford is one of the coolest hotels in Denver. It’s a block from Union Station, a block from the pedestrian mall, and close to two must-go downtown bars: The Cruise Room, which is actually part of the Oxford and home of the “007” and other killer martinis, and Wynkoop Brewing Company, an easy-going bar and pool hall founded by our very governor (and former Denver mayor) John Hickenlooper. The hotel is over a century old, so you get antique desks and bear claw bathtubs, but has been updated with modern beds, plasma TVs, etc. It’s also got wide decorative hallways, which are so much more pleasant than the drab narrow passageways of modern hotels. Finally, legend has it there was a murder-suicide here in the early 1900s, and that a womanly ghost still haunts the halls--sweet. All in all, a cool, comfy and interesting place to experience Denver.
