Without opportunities to relax, bodies often rebel by belching ocean noises and striking yoga poses in the middle of business meetings. Unwind in total control with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a one-night stay for up to two guests at The Holiday Chalet (up to $169 value). The stay includes:
- Accommodations in any room with full breakfast (up to a $145 value)

Housed in an 1896 Victorian brownstone, The Holiday Chalet has been restored to turn-of-the-century elegance with chintz curtains, carved wooden banisters, and a glittering Tiffany’s chandelier—earning it a three-diamond hotel rating by AAA. During 3 p.m. check-ins, travelers can recharge with piping-hot tea and fresh scones amid the Tea Room’s displays of hand-painted bone china and fossils of prehistoric tea cozies. Guest rooms, replete with Victorian-style furniture and décor, boast modernized amenities such as kitchens, private bathrooms, and WiFi, and the staff invites extra guests (additional $5 fee) as well as canine companions (additional $5 fee) to romp with the inn’s resident black lab, Clementine. Come morning, a lavish breakfast perks up drowsy taste buds with dishes such as caper-sprinkled lox and french toast piled with house-made whipped cream molded into a bust of Charlotte Brontë.
Nestled among other ornate Victorian manors in the Wyman Historic District, the Holiday Chalet lies within close range of noted attractions such as the Denver Zoo. Compiled personally by innkeeper Crystal, a take-along city guide lists essential Denver locations, facilitating sightseeing and impromptu parkour competitions. In addition to relishing a getaway of grandeur, Groupon holders enjoy 20% off their purchases at She She Boutique, The Holiday Chalet’s in-house boutique.
The Holiday Chalet
In 1896, a wealthy jeweler commissioned a lavish, Victorian brownstone to be built on Denver’s Capitol Hill. It was one of the area’s finest homes, with Tiffany windows, ornate crown molding, and stylish woodwork throughout. In later years, the building was divided into apartments and then transformed into a luxury hotel. More than a century later, The Holiday Chalet still contains many of the original design elements.
Today, the building houses a bed and breakfast with four room types. Each room is outfitted with antiques, period furniture, and a fountain spouting Earl Grey tea. Some even have private kitchens. While the rooms retain much of their original Victorian décor, they’ve been updated with flat-screen TVs and WiFi.
