Great location

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Oxford Hotel for his birthday this past weekend and we had a wonderful time! It was a very neat experience to stay in the oldest hotel in Denver. We also ate dinner at Mccormicks Fish House, the attached restaurant and had a very romantic, great tasting seafood dinner. The hotel room has your normal basics. The bed was very comfortable and the bath tub was HUGE which was pretty amazing! The hotel is in a great location, right in the heart of the LoDo district so it was close to fun nightlife hotspots. I enjoyed the old style décor in the room including the thick curtains with tassels. Very expensive room but the location and ambience makes it worth it. Would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

Great location

Really fantastic location and cool historic hotel. I had a problem getting a hairdryer delivered to my room - it took 3 calls to the front desk and over an hour in which I was waiting with wet hair and was then late for plans that evening. That doesn't seem like 4 star service to me.

Great getaway with old world charm

Had a great time staying at a unique place rather than the cookie cutter syle hotels that are out there. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Very close to many dining or shopping places, but if you feel up to it, more places can be found with a longer walk.

Great Location

We stayed here after a Broncos game. It was super easy to take the light rail to the game from the hotel - they even let us check in early before the game (it was an afternoon game). Larimer Square is close too so we walked to a great dinner after the game. The staff was great and the room service food was good. They have a funky old-school bar downstairs that was fun.

Perfect Blend

I tend to like boutique hotels that offer modern conveniences, personal service and unique settings. The Oxford hits all the marks. It is a perfect blend of a historic hotel with modern conveniences and exceptional service. You are greeted at the door and provided help with your luggage. Coffee is conveniently available each morning on your floor. Any time I needed help from the front desk, I received it immediately. The atmosphere is very warm and comfortable. Free internet and other amenities simply add to an already good experience. I would definitely book there again.

Very nice experience. This is a hotel dating back to about 1890, which defines some basic structural elements like room size, elevator size, etc. But remodeling has made this a very comfortable, warm and charming hotel. The customer service was among the best I've experienced. The attitude of the staff really makes the difference. Great location in the heart of downtown Denver.

It's an older hotel in downtown Denver that comes with all of the creaks and sounds that come with age.

Great Location!

Great Location, but expensive hotel. Was nice but not super clean as I would have expected. Very friendly staff, except for one girl. Spa is right next door! Very friendly at the spa, would definately recommened the spa to everyone! If you stay in the hotel you get 10% off spa services! The beds are very hard. My husband and I had a very hard time getting to sleep. Also you can hear everything from the street in your room. We were on the 3rd floor and still heard everything.

Beautiful Old world Style Hotel

This was a pricey stay but an amazing hotel nonetheless! It was like being in the flapper age and the bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! If you have the money to spend then this is where it's at!
