Are you looking for the perfect weekend getaway? Recently, my hubby and I visited Denver, Colorado, as you may have seen on my most recent blog post here. I had never been to Denver before, and now I highly recommend it as a travel destination. It was so fun to escape reality, and we got spoiled staying at The Crawford Hotel located in Denver Union Station.

The hotel features outlets for several of Denver’s most popular local shops, including the famous Tattered Cover Book Store, as well as 5 Green Boxes and the beautiful flowers at Bloom. I am a huge lover of flowers, so I had to stop and get my picture at Bloom.
This was probably my favorite aspect of the hotel: there are a total of 9 different places to grab a drink or a bite to eat at The Crawford! For drinks, the Terminal Bar is the go-to for craft beers, while the Cooper Lounge features exquisite cocktails and wine, as well as an impressive view overlooking the rest of the station. After a night in the lounge, PigTrain Coffee Co. is a great way to get your caffeine fix before starting off your day the next morning. The food options are plentiful, too. Snooze features some of the best and most unique breakfast creations I’ve ever had; I enjoyed trying unique pancake flavors. For being in the middle of the country, Stoic & Genuine manages to serve up fresh, delicious seafood. Mercantile is a farm to table restaurant with many options as well as their own market, while Acme (New York style deli with some tasty sandwiches) and Next Door (American style food with unique Denver touches) are also great options. For dessert, they even have an ice cream shop! Milkbox Ice Creamery, famous for their iconic Little Man Ice Cream shop out in the Denver Highlands, brings their creative flavors to The Crawford.
If you’re planning a trip to Denver, I highly recommend staying at The Crawford Hotel. Stay tuned for my full guide on what to do in Denver soon.
