Day 23 of the Nowhere To Be Project was spent at the Born Hotel in Denver. This newish hotel is part of the Kimpton brand and is conveniently located in Denver’s trendy LoDo neighborhood adjacent to Union Station. I frequent Kimpton hotels mainly because of their pet-friendly approach to hospitality. They are always my first choice when traveling with my dog, George Bailey. He absolutely adores their offerings of canine-centric amenities. Another member of the Kimpton brand, Hotel Monaco, was my staple in Denver. As much as I like the Monaco, the Born Hotel will now be my first choice in Denver and should be yours as well (even if you’re traveling sans pooch).
The vibe at the hotel is what I would describe as trendy western with lots of warm wood, exposed concrete and clean lines. The service is exceptional. From the moment I entered the valet area yesterday to the moment I left today, every staff member I encountered went above and beyond in terms of service. I was graciously offered early check in and late check out and was upgraded to a top floor room with floor to ceiling windows offering a lovely view of the city. The room was spotless, quiet and wonderfully comfortable. While everything from shopping to dining is mere steps away, I definitely would consider taking advantage of the free bicycles or even the hotel’s Tesla for zipping around town.
One of my favorite perks when staying at a Kimpton property is the wine hour. My pupper also loves this part of our stays as he gets to meet the other pooches who are guests of the hotel. The Kimpton wine hours are usually held in the lobby area and typically include several complimentary beverage and hors d’oeuvre options. I was thrilled to learn last evening that Kimpton selects and serves only wines that give back to charity! I mean, who wouldn’t want to drink in the name of charity?
From top to bottom, this stay exceeded my expectations. It was so hard to check out because we simply did not want to leave the comfort and warmth of this beautiful hotel. Let me put it this way, my dog and I will most certainly be born again.
