The Mile High City is a fantastic place to see a sporting event, go skiing, do some shopping and attend business meetings. Unfortunately, Denver is also a city that is sometimes hit with inclement weather that can lead to flight cancellations and road closures. If you find yourself stuck in Denver, here are a few hotels that can keep you busy until you can get on your way.
If your flight is cancelled and you find yourself stranded at the airport, Hyatt House is the place you want to be. With spacious suites that have a full kitchen and free Wi-Fi, staying in will feel like home. Hyatt House also offers a complimentary breakfast and evening social, which will allow you to meet other stranded folks.

Getting stuck at the Brown Palace actually wouldn’t be such a bad thing! Over a hundred years old, the Brown Palace is full of history: with the exception of Calvin Coolidge, every president since Teddy Roosevelt has visited; and in 1964, the Beatles stayed there. In addition to interesting historical facts, the Brown features several restaurants including the Ship Tavern, Ellyngton’s and the Palace Arms, each critically acclaimed. You can enjoy live entertainment in the Atrium every afternoon and early evening and a cocktail in the Churchill Bar. To soothe away the anxiety of being stuck, perhaps a trip to The Spa at the Brown Palace is in order where you can treat yourself to a deep tissue massage, or, if you’d prefer, a mani and pedi. By the time you’re relaxed and worry free, you will no doubt find that you’re no longer stuck in Denver.
