The Story Behind the Newcomer in Our Lobby

Published by under Hotel Denver

Originally purchased from Sears Roebuck for a reported $29.95, the organ in our lobby now was a wedding gift to Nellie Reagle in 1908 from her parents. Nellie lived for a few years in Valentine, Nebraska, before she and her husband loaded their belongings (including the organ) into a wagon and came to Colorado to start a new life.

The History of our “Denver” Rooms

Published by under Hotel Denver

The group of rooms we call “Denver Rooms” are relatively new construction. An old building was demolished, and after 288 days of construction, the 17 new Denver Rooms were completed. Completion was August 2001, 11 days before the 911 tragedy. The Denver rooms line the entire eastern (Denver-side, thus the name) face of The Hotel Denver, with views toward the stunning Glenwood Canyon and Colorado River.

The evolution of our rooms

Published by under Hotel Denver

The Owner / Operator of our hotel, April Carver, gives us valuable insights in this edition of our blog!

Back in 1914 when the Hotel Denver was conceived, small rooms were the norm. The typical traveler at that time was a business man or a couple on holiday. Silver kings built the hotel across the river, but here on the south side was a real town with real, working class people and business travelers. As the hotel joined up with properties on both sides, remodels were done to include modern (as defined in the 40’s) bathrooms in each room, and eight larger rooms were added to accommodate the boom of post-war traveling families.

Come and See What We Mean!

Published by under Hotel Denver

Do you see what I see?

From Room 442 of The Hotel Denver, a fourth floor private deck boasts great views of Glenwood Springs’ top three attractions.

With its secret trails, steep rock walls and even a hanging lake, view Glenwood Canyon as it winds east from this room. Glenwood Canyon is 16 miles of steep rock, carved out over millions of years by The Colorado River. Three rest areas provide parking and trail access to the popular local trails of No Name, Grizzly Creek, and the infamous Hanging Lake Trail. Hanging Lake was formed by a glacier, and seems to suspend on a high ledge in the narrow canyon. Hanging Lake is one of the top hiking destinations in Colorado. Spouting Rock feeds the lake, and is a great place to get misted in the summer, or for a sculptural ice photo in the winter. There are also great biking trails through the canyon and for a real adrenaline rush, try a river rafting adventure in the white water!
