Still, our room was warmly furnished with lots of bold stripes, tassels and fringe, and a king-sized feather bed with down comforter and pillows. A glass-fronted armoire, CD player and our own goldfish were nice touches. The view of neighboring skyscrapers afforded a peek into the loft-style apartments that have become trendy in downtown Denver. One nice or inconvenient feature of the room, depending how you look at it, was the location of the bathroom. Upon entering the room the bathroom was off the long hallway to the right, and the bedroom was down the hall around the corner. Added privacy, but a longer trek from bed to bath. The bathroom itself was small but classy, with inlaid wood, granite surfaces and monogrammed towels.
Though we arrived too late, the Monaco offers a wine hour in the evening and coffee service downstairs in the morning. The best amenity is their canine hospitality, with a pooch on staff to welcome guest dogs.
One detail I could have done without: In-room magazines of the world’s best hotels, prominently featuring the Monaco, and a local magazine listing the hotel’s marketing director as one of Denver’s hottest singles. Get over yourself already. And if you can’t, at least make sure your staff are properly trained.

Our guest room, a King Deluxe room, was equally inviting. The room was quite large, 350 square feet, had 10 foot ceilings, and a large southern exposure window. The decor was similar to that in the lobby. In addition to a sitting area and desk, there was an entertainment armoire that included a large TV, mini-stereo with CD player, a fax/copier/printer, and an honor bar stuffed with snacks and drinks.
The Bed! A firm king sized mattress layered with a down feather bed, down comforter and down pillows. Can you say COZY?
Even though it was August, we wanted to turn the A/C to 32 degrees and play Eskimos!!
Soft terry cloth robes made getting out of bed a bit easier, as did the in-room Starbucks coffee and complimentary Wall Street Journal. The room was sparkling clean, and included nice touches such as Aveda skin products, and a complimentary wine bar. The Hotel Monaco was truly a Denver dream!

Lobby and front desk:
The hotel is build in an old railway exchange building from 1917. The lobby also looks historic. The choice of colours and furniture is unique with many different and strong colours in stripes along with other patterns. It may sound confusing but it works very well in the Monaco Hotel.
The check-in service was kind and charming making you feel welcome at the hotel.
We were very impressed with our double room. Alone, the size of the room was very impressive when you consider that the cost of space is higher in a city like Denver. The rooms consists of a quite long hall of 3-4 meters with a bathroom to the right and an oversize wardrobe closet to the left.
The rooms have a more modern feel than the lobby but they have kept the strong colours and stripes which again works very well. It seemed to us that every room had a slight twist in terms of colour and design - a unique feature. Another unique feature was that the rooms came with a gold fish.
The rooms were equiped with a fax machine, high speed internet access, and the possibility to play Nintendo games along with a selection of the newest movies.
Needless to say the rooms were very clean and nice.
Between 5pm-6pm you could enjoy free wine in the lobby. It seems that you were welcome to drink as much as you would like, however 2 glasses were more than enough as a predinner drink.
The hotel has meeting facilities if needed. The hotel also has an Italian restaurant called Panzano. It looked very nice but we didn't try it.
The Monaco hotel in Denver has thought about many small details and the hotel comes very close to perfection. I couldn't find anything to complain about.
I have never been as impressed with a hotel on this price range. I can't recommend it enough if you are going to Denver.

The rooms are decorated in vibrant colors. While a bit small, they were very well equipped with a large desk, two phone lines, modern bathrooms, robes, and a big King bed. If you are travelling alone, request a companion. The staff will be delighted to bring you up a faithful goldfish to accompany you during you stay.
The lobby is large and comfortable. Every day they offer coffee in the morning (Strong and flavorful coffee that you will enjoy drinking) and wine and cheese in the evening. The staff was extremely friendly and competent.
The restaurant Panzanno is well known in Denver for its posh environment and excellent food. There bar is well stocked with all your favorites wines and scotch.
Located downtown, the hotel is close to everything. You can walk to the 16th street mall for some shopping or down to LoDo for a night out. They have valet parking, or you can park in one of the many self-pay lots about a block from the hotel.

The hotel staff was very helpful and even when the hot water heater pump went out, they did everything they could (including giving us a discount) to make our stay comfortable.
This hotel is located right near the 16th Street mall so there is plenty to do and see. For those with a vehicle, there is valet parking, or a pay parking lot right next door (only $5 a day on weekends!)
Each room is filled with lots of vibrant colors and a mix of shapes. We stayed in the Deluxe room which had two queen beds and was plenty spacious. The bathrooms are filled with Aveda products that come from the Aveda salon and spa on the premises.

I personally loved the decor. It's colorful, very bright. Clean to the extreme. Bonus points for fun extras like the ability to request a goldfish to keep in your room as a pet during your stay. Clearly that alone is not reason enough to stay here, or at any hotel, but that, plus the style and service made me like the hotel even more.
Another fun extra is HM's daily "Altitude Adjustment", a happy hour in the hotel lobby featuring complimentary wine and fifteen minute massages.
You'll find all of the usual amenities at HM that you would at other hotels of this class: a restaurant and room service, exercise room, gift shop, etc. But many people get excited about other perks like the on-side Aveda spa or the fact that it's a pet-friendly hotel.
