Favorite place to stay so far. Scott was a big part of the charm with his humor and welcoming attitude...the architecture and ambiance of the building provided a comfortable environment. Try out some local dives while you're so close, like Pete's Kitchen and the Lion's Lair...not necessarily in that order. Character of the neighborhood is priceless in my book. Fun...

This is a cozy, Victorian style B&B. Comfortable, clean and close to Botanical Gardens, Cheesman Park, zoo, museums, etc. but the best thing about this place was the staff. Charming, friendly and so professional, the manager, Scott took great care of us! We'll be back!

The Chalet is a beautiful place. It's cozy and comfy, as soon as you walk in there is nothing but welcoming feelings.The location is perfectly convenient, there is in no way a shortage of things to do. And there are so many within walking distance. No matter what you have done during the day the Patio area is a grand...

Scott really made our vacation to Denver incredible with not only the atmosphere of the chalet, but also stellar recommendations of what to do during our stay in Colorado. It's really wonderful to be accepted like old friends into an establishment, I have no question where we will be staying in the future! Thanks, Scott!

Back in May, I treated myself to a pre-birthday gift and travelled solo to Denver for a concert at the Ogden Theater. The Holiday Chalet is in prime location for walking to most of the downtown music venues. (I walked to and from the Ogden for my show.) That being said, I am a woman in my early twenties traveling...

My husband and I booked a room for 6 nights the week prior to Memorial Day. Although the Inn is charming and the staff exceptional, the location was less than desirable. The Inn is adjacent to a bar and there is a public bus stop across the street. The first afternoon we were there, I watched a drug deal taking...

We stayed at holiday chalet in April 2014. Room was big, clean and great value. Location - while a little seedy but not unsafe in my opinion - is close to the city centre so easy to get everywhere. There was also all day parking on the side street right outside the hotel. The breakfasts were great - in particular...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel is a fully-restored Victorian, brownstone mansion originally built in 1896 for prominent Denver jeweler Henry Bohm of Bohm Jewelers. Elegant period décor along with high ceilings, hardwood floors, intricate moldings, private baths and kitchens make us Denver's most alluring and comfortable bed and breakfast. From our eclectic Capitol Hill location visitors enjoy Denver's best sight-seeing, shopping, music, art, and nightlife all within minutes of our front door-the neighborhood described in the Jack Kerouac classic, On the Road. The Holiday Chalet enjoys the benefit of an exciting, high-energy central location within the vibrant heart of the city amid an eclectic mixture of shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues. The creative spirit in our neighborhood appeals to artists, architects, designers, writers and musicians alike. However, enveloping warmth, charm, comfort, and security within the hotel also make The Holiday Chalet a convenient home away from home for business and leisure travelers alike. As a Bed and Breakfast we begin each morning in true style with a full, home-cooked breakfast served from 7:30 to 10:00 am. A variety of delicious homemade offerings are made fresh including Cowboy pancakes, crustless veggie or bacon quiche, French toast, eggs and bacon, fresh fruits, juice, tea, and premium coffee. ... more   less
