The Ramble Hotel, Denver review: Trendy and world-class

In a nutshell: Opulent yet trendy design meets renowned bar scene at this chic boutique hotel set in Denver’s artsy neighbourhood

The neighbourhood

To put it simply, RiNo (River North Art District) is Denver’s hipster paradise. Once a busy industrial area of warehouses and factories, today the trendy neighbourhood is a haven of vibrant street art, microbreweries, craft cocktail bars, live-music venues and food halls, all conveniently located roughly within a one-mile radius. But don’t be fooled by its size. It’s easy to lose days just perusing the local art galleries and huge mural walls, sampling food from the late-night trucks and brewery-hopping to try the seemingly endless offerings of local beers. That’s not to say the area isn’t also the perfect location for first-timers to the Mile High City. With the hotel located just north of Downtown Denver (within a five-minute drive), visitors can be right in the heart of the city in no time, watching the Rockies play at the Coors Field stadium, enjoying a bit of retail therapy in Larimer Square or visiting transport hub Union Station. We took advantage of Denver’s climate (it boasts 300 days of sunshine a year) and the great local food spots RiNo has to offer during a leisurely 20-minute stroll – while armed with a flat white and crafted mochi doughnut – from The Ramble Hotel into the downtown area.

Checking in for a stay is more like being welcomed by your host for a drinks reservation at the latest “it bar” in town. And that’s because, well, you sort of are. The lobby area doubles up as the Death & Co bar (more about this later), giving the whole place an instant feel of a private members’ club – only without the pretentiousness. Plush velvet sofas in jewel tones are scattered around, tan-leather armchairs are willing you to kick back, while chandeliers…
