Arrival/Check-In: With check-in taking less than five minutes, we were given our keys and proceeded immediately to our rooms. The Oxford Hotel, located in the heart of Denver’s lively Lower Downtown historic district, was Denver’s first, originally constructed in 1891. Set in the city’s most vibrant neighborhood, the grand property is a boutique at heart, offering a unique and personalized guest experience in a stylish space filled with art of the American West. The hotel, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is the only one in the city with a fully functioning wood-burning fireplace.
Guest Quarters: I stayed in room 516, one of the property’s 80 guestrooms. Recently refreshed, all rooms at The Oxford are individually decorated, with features such as claw-foot bathtubs and floor-to-ceiling Chinese silk curtains in all rooms and French and English antiques displayed everywhere. The room, measuring 350 square feet, featured a beautiful queen-sized bed and a great city view. A nice office space with many outlets to charge electronics allowed for a comfortable work experience. The Oxford boasts a number of room amenities, including 400-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets, pillow-top mattresses, a flat-screen plasma TV, complimentary WiFi and, for that extra-nice touch, robes and slippers.
Services/Amenities: Guests can enjoy the use of the Oxford Club, Spa & Salon (with fitness center) as well as a business center.
Urban Farmer, attached to the property, opened just a couple of weeks before my visit. This steakhouse serves fine food in an airy, open and fun atmosphere. That particular evening I was in the mood for seafood and thoroughly enjoyed a seared sea scallops entrée with grain risotto, carrot juice and pepita seed.
Also, do not miss the hotel’s bar, The Cruise Room and Martini Bar, where you can enjoy the vintage jukebox with complimentary song selection amid the red-hued ambience and panels depicting toasts from all over the world. Located just off the hotel lobby, The Cruise Room was modeled after the bar of the famous Queen Mary and designed by the same architect.

If fabulous food and beverages are a must-have for any weekend getaway, then look no further than the City of Brotherly Love. Whether your palate has a penchant for vibrant Latin American fare or cozy French cuisine, whether you're an oenophile looking to swirl, sniff and sip your way around the globe or you’d rather sample farm-to-glass cocktails, Philly’s got it all this fall. (With the exception of Bolo, which is a short taxi or Uber ride away and definitely worth the trip, the rest of these spots are all within walking distance of each other.)
