A fun and lively hotel, Aloft Denver Downtown has the perfect address for city explorations. Stripping back superfluous luxury from its rooms didn’t steal the atmosphere from its lobby and bar – they’re great places to hang out.

Aloft Denver Downtown has a focus on making things easy. It’s easy to get to the 16th Street Mall and Mile High stadium. It’s easy to grab a quick coffee and snack before a day exploring (thanks to the 24/7 pantry). And you don’t even have to venture out for a lively evening - the Aloft’s wxyz bar always draws a crowd. Time it right, and you might catch some live music. While the rooms may lack the luxury of other hotels, they’re modern and comfortable nevertheless. Everything you need for a quick city pitstop and a good night’s sleep is here – a decent bed, soundproofed windows (a welcome consideration in busy downtown locations), a modern bathroom, and plenty of places to charge your phone. There’s even free bottled water and a coffee maker.
