Hotel Monaco Denver Hotel Review: This colorful, elegant and completely renovated boutique hotel was once the 1917 Railway Exchange building. Its location --- within walking distance of Lower Downtown's numerous restaurants, jazz clubs and Coors Field --- attracts an upscale business crowd during the week and an art crowd on weekends. The comfortable chairs and sofas in the two-story lobby are covered in a manic mélange of stripes, dots and bright primary colors. This is the setting of complimentary coffee every morning and a wine hour every evening. The 189 guest rooms and suites are equally audacious, done up in shades of persimmon and tangerine by designer Susan Caruso. Music buffs will enjoy the themed suites. The Grace Slick Suite has some of Grace's original Jefferson Starship artwork, and the John Lennon suite features framed handwritten lyrics of Beatles songs. Amenties include 24-hour room service, a Renaissance Aveda Spa and Salon and an on-site fitness center. Dogs are welcomed by Lily, the resident Jack Russell Terrier.
