The Best Sleep of my Life was In a Train Station

The Crawford Hotel

Union Station stands as one of Downtown Denver’s most recognizable and significant landmarks. Much of the beauty and style of Union Station today is thanks to a 2012 restoration project of the Denver Metro transportation systems, focusing on Union Station as the transportation hub.  Dana Crawford and a group of visionaries invested 54 million dollars to restore, redevelop, and return Union Station to its original glory.  Blossoming out of this project is the unmatched Crawford Hotel.  

The Crawford is an upscale, boutique hotel inside Union Station. The Crawford Hotel Manager, Ed Blair states “There's nothing like it”.  Anyone who's had the pleasure of staying at The Crawford knows exactly what he means.  From the minute guests arrive at Union Station, they are greeted with the opulence and grandiosity of true Beaux-Arts architecture.  The great arches and oversized chandeliers send guests right back to 1881 when Union Station first opened its doors. The Crawford’s 112 guest rooms are designed to capture the unique styles that have flowed through Union Station in its 142 year history.  The first floor of rooms conjure feelings of true pullman train car elegance.  The next floor boasts large rooms and high ceilings, giving a Victorian Era feel.  Finally, the upscale attic with its exposed beams has a more modern New York City loft vibe.  Each room has an iPad where guests can order from eight restaurants for local meals delivered right to their room.  Guests are given a daily, complimentary cup of coffee at Pig Train Coffee, a free scoop of ice cream from Milkbox Ice Creamery, and one daily craft beer at The Terminal Bar.  Guests can also enjoy access to the gym and fitness class at Oxford Club as well as discounted treatments at The Oxford Club Spa and Salon. Anyone staying at The Crawford must make sure to visit  The Cooper Lounge for a hand crafted cocktail and some 1920s Hollywood Glam.  Cocktails can be sipped in the lounge, among the local excitement in and around Union Station, or can be taken to go and enjoyed in the comfort of your own room. 

The luxury of The Crawford Hotel mixed with the restaurants, retail, and vibrancy of Downtown Denver, gives locals and visitors alike an experience like no other.
