Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, work and food. Hope you have a nice stay and will return soon!

 

Denver, Colorado & Brown Palace Hotel

Denver, Colorado & Brown Palace Hotel

"The air here is so fresh!" was the first thing I said upon emerging outside of Denver's International Airport. This statement was quickly followed by "I don't remember when was the last time I saw so much sky!" while in the cab speeding now the highway toward the city center.

Upon reaching Colorado's capital, it was late enough that checking into the hotel + dinner were the only two things on my agenda. But let me tell you: The hotel - The Brown Palace - was amazing. As one of the first ever built atrium-style hotel, it was build in 1890s and still conserves its atmosphere of old-school, classic-upscale elegance. To give you the picture: in stead of "restroom" with a little female stick figure, the ladies' room is called "Ladies Powder Room" and when I walked into my room... I was surrounded with classic music delicately filling the space from bedside speakers. 

100% disclosure: I didn't get the change to explore the city as much as I would have loved to. But on day two - I did sneak out to walk the 16th street mall. (... and run into some bison sculptures). It seemed very European-like, with restaurants and bars instead of skyscrapers.

Generally: I love the city and will definitively be coming back :)
