Well, another visit from Jeff has come and gone. It’s definitely getting a hard on both of us to have this split living situation, but hopefully it will be resolved soon! In the meantime, we are using his visits as an excuse to stay at local boutique hotels and have some great Denver staycations. Last visit we stayed at The Source hotel.
This time we booked a room at The Ramble Hotel in Denver. This cute, 50 room hotel is located in the RiNo district. The location at 25th and Larimer is great – you can walk to shopping, breweries, coffee shops and even downtown easily.
Aside from the great location, we chose The Ramble for 2 other reasons – the amazing old world meets modern decor, and they have Death & Co located in the hotel lobby.
The flagship location is in New York, and Denver is the only other location. This cocktail bar will give you #moodyvibes for DAYS! It’s got a real golden age, timeless elegance with a bit of an edgy modern twist.
We had dinner and drinks with them and I was very impressed! They serve an upscale, small plate menu – we highly recommend the lobster rolls, oysters, and the pork belly mac and cheese!
But the real standout, of course, is the cocktail menu. I had the Faded Memories, which consists of Junmai Sake, Shochu, Mirabelle Plum, and Islay Scotch. It was smooth, smokey, and just a little sweet – an amazing drink. I’m definitely going to bring my sister for a girl’s night!
The lobby is an interesting layout – alongside the check in desk is the bar, lounge, and restaurant seating. This all-in-one treatment gives a busy and energetic feeling to the space.
Enormous windows, high ceilings with crystal chandeliers, a rich color scheme, and a glorious, victorian-esque bar will transport you to another world! I kind of wanted to move in, to be honest. It’s certainly Instagrammable as heck. I wanted to take photos in every corner of the room – there are props and backdrops galore.
Above the lobby area is a beautiful loft area with another bar that’s a bit more intimate. You can overlook the lobby at eye level with the glittery chandeliers. There’s also an outdoor seating area with with another bar. It was slightly too chilly to be outside, but in the summertime it must be fabulous.
Our room was absolutely gorgeous. With dark blue walls, huge windows, another crystal chandelier, and cool artwork – it’s kind of my decor goals. We loved the floor to ceiling mirror/barn door that separated the restroom from the main room. Upscale amenities included cushy robes and a selection of full sized liquor bottles.
Naturally I loved the big picture of the crow above the bed – crow people are my people. <3 Little details such as the speaker shaped like an old gramaphone and an iPad instead of a phone made the experience special.
We enjoyed sitting in the comfy armchairs and looking out the window. Our room faced west and overlooked Larimer street, so the sunset and the people watching were excellent. The bed was super comfy as well.
The next morning, we took photos in the lobby as it was a lot more quiet than the night before. It was already filling up for brunch by the time we started. It’s a popular destination for people to come and hang out, eat and drink too. We stayed for brunch and I had the best biscuits I have ever eaten, hands down.
Jeff and I absolutely loved our Ramble Hotel staycation – this hotel was one of our favorites of all time. It feels elegant and intimate at the same time. I think that this might be a regular destination for us on the weekends.
After our fun night, we hit up several boutiques in the neighborhood and did some fun shopping. We got a super cute wall hanging that I’ll have to share soon! The walkability of the RiNo district makes it such a fun weekend destination.
I highly recommend Ramble if you’re looking for a classy getaway in Denver. And if you don’t want to stay the night – get over to Death & CO for some killer cocktails! You can pretend you live in the roaring 20’s and feel oh-so-cool.
Do you have any recommendations for cute boutique hotels in Denver? Jeff and I would love to check them out! Drop me a comment and let me know.
