A Place to Stay in Denver: A Hotel Review of the Al Gardens Denver

If you’re looking for a luxury hotel in the heart of downtown Denver, then your search is over. The secluded al gardens hotel is the perfect place to stay. It’s only a short walk to the symphony hall, the art museum, and the botanic gardens, so it’s the perfect spot to stroll after a long day of sightseeing. Staying here also means being just steps away from some of Denver’s most popular restaurants, clubs, and nightlife, so you’ll never be far from a happy hour, bar hopping, or live music. The Al Gardens is a unique and stylish hotel that’s sure to make you feel refreshed and ready to explore the city again.

What I loved about the Al Gardens

When I arrived at the Al Gardens, I was immediately impressed by the hotel’s style. The architecture is gorgeous, and the hotel is adorned with vibrant mosaics, stone statues, and fountains. It’s the perfect spot to relax and unwind after a day of exploring the city.

The rooms are also beautiful and well-appointed. You get picturesque views of the boulevards and fountains, and they’re comfortable and spacious enough for a family of four or a small group of friends. You can tell that a lot of thought went into the design of the Al Gardens, so I highly recommend checking out the rooms if you’re planning on staying here.

What to know before you book

The Al Gardens is a boutique hotel, so it mainly caters to an older crowd and couples. Because of this, it can be a bit pricier than other hotels in downtown Denver. To give you an idea of what to expect, a standard double room will set you back $199 per night. But if you’re willing to splurge a bit, the Al Gardens also has some truly luxurious rooms, including a premium king with a spectacular view of the city.

The hotel is also pet-friendly, so if you have a dog in tow, you won’t have to stay anywhere else. Just note that dogs are only allowed in the Al Gardens’ main (ground) floor and the second (parking) floor. They must be kept on a leash at all times and are not allowed in any of the hotel’s public spaces.

How to book the Al Gardens

To book the Al Gardens, you can go through the hotel’s website or use an online booking site like Expedia,, or When you find a room that you like, just click the “book now” button and choose a payment method. The Al Gardens will also give you the option to pay with a credit card at checkout.

Where to eat in Denver

If you’re staying at the Al Gardens, you’ll be just a short walk from some of Denver’s best restaurants. To start, make your way to the Colorado Convention Center. This is where all of the city’s best food and drink events are held, and it’s only a short walk from the Al Gardens.

Once you’ve eaten your fill, make your way to the Art District on Santa Fe, which is just a quick walk across the 16th Street Mall. Here you’ll find stylish restaurants, cafes, and boutiques, so you can relax and unwind after a busy day of sightseeing.

Where to drink in Denver

If you’re looking for an upscale place to sip wine or cocktails, make your way to the Highlands neighborhood. This is one of my favorite downtown spots because it’s filled with quaint wine bars and cocktail lounges. Try the Library at the Denver Post or Mayahuel, which has a stunning rooftop terrace. If you’re looking for a more casual vibe, head to the RiNo neighborhood instead. Here you’ll find tons of charming neighborhood bars with live music and a fun, bustling atmosphere.
