Jetlag induced early morning (5am) for Henry and a sensible sleep-in (7am) for fellow travellers.

LA to Denver was a nice short hop of under two hours (compared to Sydney - LA) and some great scenery below, flying over Las Vegas and Utah then into Denver.

Historical Traveler Reviews Oxford Hotel Denver
The Oxford Hotel was very nice. We had exceptional service the entire visit. The rooms are updated but with some of the original furnishings. When needing assistance with the area, ask for David. He is a six-generation Coloradian and knows everything about the hotel, restaurants, history or the area and more. Excellent stay.
My wife and I stayed here in August 2004 for our 2nd wedding anniversary and could not have chosen a better romantic spot. Beautiful, restored classic, our room, a "Deluxe Victorian" was well worth the premium room charge and was very large with a fireplace, luxurious king bed (reminded me of the Westin Heavenly Bed), Sony WEGA flat panel TV, beautiful antique furniture and fixtures, etc. I booked on Expedia for $159, the lowest rate I found.
Great service and location
We chose this hotel because of the reviews and location and we were not disappointed. The room was comfortable and really spacious, (we booked an interior room with 2 beds), and furnished with fine antiques. The bathroom was small but very quaint and clean. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. We also took advantage of the free wireless internet that is available. Complimentary Sherry is available in the lobby. The Oxford's valet parking is your only option and it costs $21. A hotel car will drive you anywhere downtown, but shopping/restaurants/bars are within walking distance. We walked to the Wynkoop Brewery (2 blocks) and enjoyed the best meal of our 6 day trip.
Wonderful and personal service
Stayed one night at the Oxford before leaving the USA.
Old fashioned atmosphere, excellent rooms and beds. McCormicks fish restaurant next door with very high quality cuisine.
Good location downtown in quiet area and close the Union Station. About 35 mins from airport by cab.
Courtesy car to ferry you around town if desired.
Staff charming and efficient, especially porters who simply could not do enough.
Coffee makers on every floor and free sherry decanter provided during afternoon in reception area. LIttle touches that make a good hotel excellent.
Go Back In Time
My husband and I stayed at the Oxford on Easter Weekend and was very impressed with the accomodations and atmosphere. If you like modern, this is not the hotel for you! But, if you like to feel like you've gone way back in time, then you'll love the Oxford. Our accomodations were very nice and the bed was extremely comfortable. The retro bar and McCormick's restaurant (on site) were excellent also. All the service folks we encountered were very courteous and friendly. One GREAT benefit of staying at the Oxford is the complimentary use of a towncar so you don't have to drive to get around. No hassle! There are no in-room coffee makers (too modern!) but there's coffee service on every floor. I would definately stay at the Oxford again. We had a great time!
We had the best time ever. I can't decide what I liked most the beautiful hotel, tasty diner downstairs, or superb service.
Wonderful, don't miss the spa.....
We stayed at The Oxford over New Year's this year and had a fabulous time. Not only is it supremely located near fabulous restaurants and other amenities it has a wonderful spa with fantastic rates on services. It also houses one of the most fabulous bars, The Cruise Room. The Art Deco ambience is not to miss, and you can even order in from the fabulous McCormick's Fish House next door. We're coming back next year!
Best in Denver
Wonderful Service, Beautiful Victorian Room. For the difference in price, beats the Brown Palace every time. Its location is much better, for the hotel is surrounded by great restaurants. Never stay anywhere else.
Quiet, quaint, and in the middle of it all.
One of the most wonderful accommodations you'll ever enjoy. Plush, historic, yet everything is modern and extremely upscale. The beds are marvelous. Very warm, comfortable surroundings and while the hotel is quiet and quaint, the city outside the room is non-stop. In the heart of downtown Denver (LoDo) and minutes away from Larimar and the mall.
You won't want to miss the Cruise Room and their not-so-infamous Lemon Drop Martini. The Oxford will truly spoil you forever.
We love the Oxford.....and the decor is lovely with the antiques! It's a special place to go and be well taken care of! We'll certainly go back! Thanks Stewart for all your extra help and info.....
