WHY GO NOW? Hotel Indigo appeals to locals with its pet-pampering policy and frequent promotions that include discounts of up to 25 percent for Colorado residents and a special Urban Explorer package this spring. Only a few blocks from the Union Station light rail station and just across the street from the train station itself, it’s a perfect place to escape weekend chores for a night or two—especially if you’ve got tickets to see the Nuggets, Avs, or your favorite crooner at the Pepsi Center.
WHAT YOU GET: Rooms are ultra-modern and—good to know with the steam plant next door—ultra-quiet. Barn doors, hardwood floors, polished concrete ceilings, and plush beds give a luxurious, contemporary feel. Tip: Vast views of the city await on the eighth floor!
THE EXTRAS: Union Station offers a happy hour buffet of such gourmet bites, brews, and libations, one can while away the afternoon enjoyably knowing that respite is only steps away at the Indigo. There, the food, whisky, and staff at Hearth & Dram, just off the Indigo lobby, push a stay over the top. A whisky flight at the bar with Guy serves up education with indulgence. And there’s this possibility for the footloose and fancy-free: At the bottom of Hearth’s brunch menu Day Drinking section is the entry “Take The Elevator Home” at market price. While you enjoy your brunch and $15 bottomless mimosas, ask the staff about that— you might be in for a steal of a one-night room deal!
