Denver is a popular budget-travel destination offering a bit of everything
for visitors. With scenic Rocky Mountain beauty, seven professional sports
teams and vibrant culture, Colorado’s capital continues to be an extremely
popular destination. If you're planning to visit Denver, IHG’s wide range
of hotels will help you make the most of your trip.
Things to See
Denver offers a number of must-visit destinations and attractions. For
families, the two biggest draws are the Denver Zoo, one of the largest in
the U.S., and Denver's Downtown Aquarium, which features 17 acres of
interactive marine exhibits. Catch live music acts and walk along the
trails at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre, which has 9,000 seats and has
been called one of the best outdoor music venues in the world. Visitors
should also visit Larimer Square, a historic neighborhood and hub for
entertainment, nightlife, art and restaurants, to fully experience the
culture and heartbeat of the city.
Hotels in Denver
Denver is an attractive vacation destination year-round, but certain
seasons offer considerable savings. A majority of visitors venture to
Denver in the summer, but the city’s warm seasonal weather brings higher
hotel prices. You can avoid crowds and costly room rates by traveling in
the spring or early autumn months, and even though Denver is popular for
nearby Rocky Mountain skiing, winter months are also a budget-friendly time
Where to Stay
Families and business travelers may find downtown Denver convenient, since
it includes many of Denver's major attractions like the Colorado Convention
Center, Denver Art Museum
and Denver Botanical Gardens. The pedestrian-friendly LoDo (Lower Downtown)
and Larimer Square area, home to the popular 16th Street Mall, is teeming
with restaurants, art galleries and nightlife spots, and is known to many
as Denver's trendiest spot. Since Denver hotels in these areas can be a bit
pricey, budget-conscious travelers might consider staying in the Highlands
area, which is home to a number of art galleries, authentic multicultural
restaurants and live music venues.
Whether you're looking for outdoor adventure, world-class museums or
vibrant nightlife, Denver is a wonderful, budget-friendly vacation
destination. Book through IHG® to ensure top-quality hotel accommodations.
