Denver, Colorado, also known as the Mile High City, is known for its sporting events and artistic attractions, both of which are featured often in the most entertaining hotels in the city. From kid-friendly fun to sultry adult entertainment, Denver's hotels provide amusement for all kinds of guests. Many of these hotels are located in the downtown area, the locale of many of Denver's attractions.

The Curtis Hotel

The Curtis Hotel is a 336-room boutique hotel in downtown Denver. It is a self-described "celebration of pop-culture," with every room bedecked in vibrant pop colors and artwork by British pop artists. The 13 floors of the Curtis each feature a different theme, from the Sci-Fi Floor to the The Dance Floor; guest rooms on each floor are adorned with decor expressing the respective floor's theme. Dining at the Curtis comes in the form of Asian cuisine with Latin American influences; the food is just as vibrant as the hotel's adornment. The hotel is just a hop, skip and a jump from many entertaining attractions including The Pepsi Center, The Downtown Aquarium and Elitch Gardens.

Warwick, Denver

The Warwick Hotel is situated in the heart of Denver's bustling downtown and is less than a mile away from The Denver Art Museum and the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Each of the newly renovated rooms is supplied with velvety cushions and rich Mahogany furniture. High-speed wireless Internet is available for a daily fee, smoking is allowed in certain areas, and a roof-top swimming pool is open and heated year-round.

Hotel Monaco

Bold, vibrant stripes of color, stylish furniture and a jubilant atmosphere make up the Hotel Monaco, a Kimpton Boutique Hotel in downtown Denver. In-room amenities at the hotel include free high-speed Internet, personalized welcome gifts, 24-hour room service, and even spa services -- from pedicures and manicures to massages and aromatherapy.

The Jet Hotel

Low blue lights against dark walls create an atmospheric and ethereal quality at The Jet Hotel. The stylish and modern Jet Lounge is always popping with trendy Denverites looking to socialize, have a drink and listen to some of Denver's best DJs. Private bottle service, a large dance floor, and a full bar can be found in The Jet Hotel's 150-person private dance club, Twenty. Hair styling for both men and women is available at the Rita B. Salon.
