Things to Do in Denver

Discover the Mile High City

You might get lightheaded just thinking about all the things to do in Denver. The Mile High City has 17% less oxygen in the air, after all. But being this high up has benefits — like 300 days of sunshine a year and cool, favorable temperatures perfect for exploring the city’s diverse and intriguing neighborhoods.

Denver Art Museum

Found a five-minute walk from our doors, the Denver Art Museum is one of the largest art museums between Chicago and the West Coast. Stop by the museum and you'll find more than 70,000 works of art throughout their 12 permanent collections. During your visit, be sure to see the Monet exhibit titled Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature, which features more than 120 paintings from the artist. Another notable exhibit at the Denver Art Museum is The Light Show, an exploration of light in art through a variety of mediums. See these exhibits and more when you stay at our hotel near the Denver Art Museum.

History Colorado Center

Located directly across Broadway from the hotel, History Colorado Center features artifacts, stories, and art intermingle to tell the tale of Colorado and the American West. The museum is designed for multi-generational audiences and consists of over fifteen exhibits spanning four floors, capturing the pioneering and individualistic spirit of Colorado. 

Golden Triangle Creative District

Stay in the culturally stimulating Golden Triangle neighborhood, where the most impressive museums in Denver are within walking distance. Don’t miss the Denver Art Museum, Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art, and the Clyfford Still Museum — all within steps of the ART, a hotel. The gold-domed Colorado State Capitol and Civic Center Park are also just outside the hotel doors, making it easy to snap Instagram-worthy shots of the city’s famous landmarks.

Lower Downtown (LoDo) District

Walk through the Central Business District or take the house car to LoDo, the historic Lower Downtown of Denver. From bars to microbreweries, this historic neighborhood has turned hip with the renovated Denver Union Station, the main hall of which the locals affectionately call “Denver’s living room.” Between trying contemporary cuisines,  and exploring innovative collective marketplaces, one can catch a baseball game at Coors Field, or sample local craft brews on the Denver Beer Trail. LoDo has something for everyone.

River North (RiNo) Art District

RiNo brings urban charm to denver. From art galleries to street art, craft breweries and cocktail bars, this revived industrial neighborhood brims with color and creativity. Murals by local and international artists seem to pop up overnight, and Friday evenings invite you to explore pop-up boutiques and shows alongside the city’s young, bold, and tattooed. With influences from New York to California, this innovative district is a living, breathing work of art.
