Where to Stay in Denver

Where to Stay in Denver

There’s not necessarily a wrong choice when it comes to deciding where to stay in the Mile High City. Your living plans in Denver are likely dependent on what brings you to the city. But whether you’re here for family, business, or just to see whether the city lives up to its reputation, there’s an upscale travel apartment waiting for you. And between us, although there’s no wrong way to stay in Denver, we’re here to tell you about the right way to stay on top in the Mile High City.

LoDo

“What the heck is a LoDo?” is probably what you’re asking yourself right now. Is it a new species of bird? A baking shop? What? Fear not, citizen, for answers are forthcoming. LoDo is a neighborhood in Denver. Specifically, it’s the best neighborhood in Denver. What makes LoDo unique is that it isn’t an officially registered neighborhood – rather, it is a conglomeration of the coolest parts of lower Downtown. Mile High City natives got sick of not having a way to refer to this particularly cool section of Denver, and thus the term LoDo was born. But what makes LoDo the best neighborhood in Denver? What attractions does it have to warrant your spending your hard-earned cash on a travel apartment within the neighborhood’s unofficial boundary lines? Let’s take a peek at just a fraction of what LoDo has to offer.

Larimer Square

Don’t fret – Larimer Square is a whole lot more than a weird semi-rhyme. In fact, it’s not so much a square as it is a historic several blocks of Denver. Historians and architecture enthusiasts alike will appreciate that Larimer Square hosts the oldest buildings in all of Denver. Worry not, youthful adventurers, for Larimer Square is also one of the most bustling attractions in the Mile High City. Famous shops, boutiques, and restaurants are all grouped together in this small section of LoDo, all for your amusement. Have fun exploring Larimer Square!

Museum of Contemporary Art Denver

For almost a quarter century, the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, or MCA Denver as it’s known locally, has strived to bring the best in modern art to the people of Denver. And it’s been quite successful. Today, MCA Denver is renowned for its contributions to the culture of the Mile High City. The MCA Denver hosts local, national, and international works of art, displayed through rotating exhibitions and public educational programs. If you have any interest in the arts, or in culture in general, prioritize a trip to the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver.

Coors Field

This one is cheating a little bit. Technically, Coors Field is outside of LoDo. However, since the back fence rubs against the invisible LoDo neighborhood line, and since you can easily walk to Coors Field from any travel apartment in LoDo, it seemed fair game to include in this list. Coors Field is unlike any sporting attraction you’ve ever been to. Sure, you can yell at your favorite baseball team any day of the week. But how often do you get to do it right alongside 50,397 other fans? Suck down a healthy (or unhealthy) portion of beer and brats while you’re enjoying the game, all with the knowledge that you won’t even have to worry about finding a ride home because you’ll be living so close. As an added bonus, since Denver is precisely one mile above sea level, there’s less air resistance, meaning Coors Field is one of the best places for heavy hitters to swing for the fences. Hey, maybe you can even break your personal batting record!
