With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, and boasting stunning Rocky Mountain backdrops and a lively culinary, arts and cultural scene, Colorado’s “Mile High City,” Denver, is becoming an increasingly popular destination amongst discerning travelers.
Located in the heart of downtown Denver, across from the Denver Center for Performing Arts (DCPA), Hotel Teatro is an exceptional luxury boutique hotel featuring 110 guest rooms and suites. What was once the Denver Tramway Tower when constructed in 1911, is now an opulent hotel, consistently recognized as one of the best in the country and the world by leading travel authorities and publications. Hotel Teatro is a recipient of the AAA Four Diamond award, was ranked one of the “Top 50 Large City Hotels in the U.S" in 2009 and “Top 500 Hotels in the World" in 2010 by Travel + Leisure, and was the highest rated Denver hotel by Zagat’s Survey of Top U.S. Hotels, Resorts & Spas in 2009.
While Hotel Teatro’s meticulously restored historic façade imparts the grandeur of a distant day, its interior offers modern-day luxury and uncompromising service. Originally opened in 1999, the hotel recently underwent a renovation in excess of $1 million, and from décor to amenities to dining, it sets the standard of excellence for business and leisure travelers in the Mile High City.
“Teatro,” translating to “theatre” in Italian, was named for its close proximity to the DCPA, and the hotel lobby, parlor and guestrooms are adorned with stunning costumes and black and white photographs from 20 years of past theatrical productions of the Denver Center Theatre Company. Guestrooms feature 12 ft. ceilings, are decorated in rich, soft gold or sage tones and boast high definition plasma flat screen televisions, iHome iPod docking stations and complimentary Wi-Fi. They are finely appointed with Indonesian sandstone floors, custom furniture, Simmons Beautyrest Black Beverly Hills Series mattresses (a favorite with guests) and custom designed 300-thread count linens and down duvets. Marble bathrooms are equipped with European chrome fixtures, televisions, luxurious deep soaking tubs, glass-enclosed rainfall showers, Frette towels and robes, and Aveda bath products.
Additional amenities include complimentary in-room Fiji water, coffee and tea; complimentary daily newspapers delivered to guests’ rooms; and courtesy local car service in Hotel Teatro’s chauffeured Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid. Guests may also take advantage of this boutique hotel’s unique relaxation programs, including an aromatherapy bath turndown service, in-room spa treatments, and its complimentary Dreamaker Program, offering amenities such as meditation CDs and tranquility fountains, as well as a pillow menu.
In addition to its extraordinary accommodations and amenities, guests constantly remark about Hotel Teatro’s stellar service as a distinguishing characteristic, one of the many reasons Teatro is a favorite amongst leisure travelers and celebrities alike. From helping guests find the most posh LoDo restaurant to arranging private jet transportation, Hotel Teatro always provides anticipatory service.
Denver is one of the fittest cities in America, and Hotel Teatro encourages guests to stay active, even while on the road. The hotel offers a complimentary 24-hour fitness center, as well as privileged access to the nearby Colorado Athletic Club, where yoga and spin classes are included at no extra cost. A complimentary daily guided running program is also available at the hotel, or if guests prefer to run alone, Hotel Teatro provides two-way radios so they can maintain contact with the concierge. Also available is a complimentary Yoga-On-Demand program, offering yoga mats, DVDs and props delivered to guestrooms upon request. In-room sessions with a certified Yogi are also offered.
Award-winning chef and restaurateur Kevin Taylor operates two fine dining restaurants within Hotel Teatro. For refined French-American cuisine, Restaurant Kevin Taylor, Denver’s only four-star, four-diamond restaurant, offers exquisite fare in a striking setting, complete with imported linens, table settings and crystal. Seasonal menus change every two months and feature such delicacies as porcini and foie gras ravioli, roasted French turbot with garlic-tomato confit, and veal rib chops with crisp mushroom “purses.” A pre-theatre, prix-fixe dinner menu is available nightly as well. Just on the other side of the lobby, guests will also find Prima Ristorante, offering light, modern, heart-healthy Italian cuisine in a sophisticated contemporary setting. Both Restaurant Kevin Taylor and Prima and offer seasonal menus and extensive wine lists, as well as 24-hour in-room dining upon request.
