Conveniently Located Hotel Close to Downtown Denver and Airport
The construction of Denver International Airport in 1994 was a milestone for the city. But in its wake, Stapleton International Airport—which served as the city’s airport for more than 60 years—was abandoned. For years, Stapleton was a maze of empty terminals, runways, and hangars. Since then, however, a development project has transformed the old airport site into the largest neighborhood in Denver. It now boasts acres of parks and an intimate town square lined with restaurants and specialty shops. Residents here also enjoy one of the best locations in the city; Stapleton is just minutes from downtown attractions such as the Denver Zoo and Denver Art Museum. It’s also close to Rocky Mountain National Park and its many wilderness trails.
Located on the edge of Stapleton closest to downtown, Holiday Inn Denver East Stapleton has an 11-story atrium with views of the city skyline and the Rockies. You can also take in the vistas from the private balcony of your room.
Dining options onsite include Quebecs Bistro, which serves New American cuisine in a casual atmosphere. Alternatively, you can head to Martini’s Sports Bar, which offers small plates and sandwiches alongside local microbrews. The lounge also has a pool table and flat-screen TVs if you want to catch the game.
Denver: Mile High City in the Rocky Mountains
Modern urban life meets the Old West in the Mile High City. Founded as a mining town in the 1850s, Colorado's capital has never quite lost its rugged frontier spirit. The proximity of the Rocky Mountains probably has a lot to do with it. The great outdoors are bound to stay near the forefront of your mind with such a spectacular reminder crowding the horizon.
If you can tear your eyes away from the scenery, though, there's a lot to see in the city. In the trendy Lower Downtown Historic District—LoDo to natives—you can take a stroll through the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver or mingle with the fashion-forward crowd filling the restaurants, boutiques, and nightclubs of Larimer Square. Downtown, the pedestrian-friendly 16th Street Mall cuts a swath through the heart of the city, past sidewalk cafés, skyscrapers, and plazas filled with street performers.
For an outdoor adventure inside city limits, make your way to City Park, which houses the Denver Zoo as well as the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. The museum’s long-standing wildlife hall features more than 90 dioramas and taxidermal animals from around the world, including the Arctic walruses and the cheetahs that once guarded Nicolas Cage's mind.
