When you think of the Four Seasons fleet of hotels, you instantly picture pristine pampering from the lobby to the penthouse. No matter where you are in the world, this 5-star destination exudes health and wealth in any city you’re visiting. So, we put the newly renovated 14th Street location to the test.
Much to my delight, Four Seasons Hotel Denver did not disappoint. Right in the middle of our city’s urban jungle, you can look forward to a high-end stay; starting with breakfast in bed after your travels, and then if you’re up for a little exploring, head outside to shop at the many one-of-a-kind boutiques in Denver’s infamous Larimer Square.
“Our primary goal at Four Seasons Hotel Denver is to offer our guests and patrons an experience like no other,” says General Manager and Regional Vice President, Thierry Kennel. “While we want to ensure an elevated experience in hospitality for our guests—we also want them to feel comfortable when they’re staying with us. Almost as if they’re staying in the comfort of their own home, but have all of the amenities and services of Four Seasons. I am proud to say that our team excels at this delicate balance.”
The Spa is located on the third floor beside the fitness center with easy access to the private rooftop. If you have time, soak in the sunshine and mingle poolside while admiring the breathtaking mountain views. Downstairs, the hotel lobby boasts the beautiful EDGE bar, perfect for lounging before the night’s activities.
When you’re finished for the day, there’s nothing more relaxing than a bubble bath in your own luxe tub and King Suite. And, if you’re feeling a little peckish before bed, the EDGE Restaurant offers 24-hour in-room service. Tip: Ask about the VIP turn-down service.
“While our restaurant is a traditional steak house in one sense, as you can see upon entry with our custom-built dry-aged meat locker; we flex our menu options towards all food preferences and pride ourselves on ensuring all of our guests have an exceptional meal when dining with us,” adds Executive Chef, Craig Dryhurst. “I am very proud of our talented team in the kitchen. We all work together to create a menu that is diverse, and most importantly, delicious. All of this, combined with the ambiance, service, attention to detail and overall experience that we are able to offer at EDGE sets us apart from other restaurants in Denver.”
Eat & Drink
Edge Restaurant & Bar is a high-end American steakhouse with many global influences. Located next to the lobby of the hotel, EDGE Restaurant & Bar utilizes superior quality meats (which are artistically showcased in a unique meat locker at the hotel’s entrance), locally sourced Colorado game, fresh seafood and produce from nearby farms to cultivate dishes full of seasonal flavors. From freshly made pastries to seasonal fruit plates and apple cider donut holes, you’ll want to try all of their delicious morning offerings. For a special brunch, we tasted the Pesto Chicken Aroncini, Smoked BBQ Brisket Sandwich, Tres Leches Waffle and an apple spice smoothie. If you’re joining for dinner, Chef Craig suggests the caviar, an amuse bouche like the Platinum Osetra Regalis, and the A5 Wagyu or 12 oz. Rocky Mountain Elk Rack with Jumbo Asparagus.
Denver Performing Arts Complex
A short walk from Four Seasons Hotel Denver sits one of the largest performing arts centers in the country. The Denver Performing Arts Complex is a four-block, 12- acre campus of theaters and public spaces in downtown Denver. The Arts Complex houses three iconic theatres: Ellie Caulkins Opera House, Temple Hoyne Buell Theatre and Boettcher Concert Hall, with 10 performance spaces and over 10,000 seats.
Larimer Square represents a lot of firsts in Denver. It’s named after General William Larimer and is touted as the city’s first block, first commercial district, first designated historic district; and is also home to its first residence and first city hall. Today, Larimer Square is known as a popular dining and shopping destination, which has helped inspire numerous preservation projects in Lower Downtown and Union Station.
