Hotel Crush: The Curtis Hotel, Denver
In recent years, large hotel chains like Hilton have jumped on the boutique bandwagon by creating their own versions of these trendy accommodations to appeal to the modern traveler. Located in the heart of Downtown Denver, The Curtis Hotel actually falls under the Doubletree brand, but with its bright colors, and quirky feel, you would never know.
Only a few blocks from Denver's bustling 16th street, The Curtis is a themed boutique hotel made especially for lovers of pop culture. Each level in the hotel has a different theme. From the TV-themed 14th floor to the horror-themed 13 floor (cute right?) it's hotel heaven for lovers of sci-fi, movies and pop culture in general.
Each room comes with complimentary wifi, a flat screen tv, refrigerator, a huge closet for hanging clothes and a comfy bed with fresh white linens. The hotel is quirky and fun, but still offers guests luxury Crabtree & Evelyn soaps and shampoos. If you're too tired to hit the town for dinner, head downstairs to the adjoining restaurant The Corner Office, that specializes in delicious global fare. The Corner Office menu is also the room service menu, so you can enjoy a delicious meal right in your horror-themed room if you like!
For those who enjoy sleek modern accommodations, but also enjoy colorful designs and are a culture vulture, The Curtis is worth checking out. The hotel is family friendly and pet friendly (the 8th floor) making it a great option for travel with kids. Aside from the themed floors, the colorful lobby also has a slew of cool pop culture books as well as classic board games to play.
If you're in the mood for a unique hotel experience, but still want to be able to accumulate your Hilton points, The Curtis Hotel gives you the best of both worlds.
