Conde Nast Traveler gives kudos to Crawford Hotel

The Crawford Hotel in Denver Union Station got a stellar review from Condé Nast Traveler.

Excerpt:

One of the most distinctive things about the Crawford is that you can "go out" without really "going out." Sure, lots of hotels have restaurants in their lobbies, but most of the time, you feel like you're having dinner in a hotel. Because there is so much going on at the Crawford -- and the fact that there's really no lobby -- guests can forget that they're in a hotel upon exiting their room. Dining options range from small coffee shops to local favorites: Stoic & Genuine for seafood and raw bar, the Kitchen Next Door for farm-to-table fare, and Snooze, Denver's infamous "A.M. Eatery" known for its pancakes and Benedicts.

When standing in the middle of the main terminal, or the "Great Hall" as it is called, you can look up and see the rooms on either side. Above is a view from the hallway outside the rooms. There's a total of three floors and 112 rooms, and each is laid out differently: 112 rooms, 112 layouts and designs. If you have special needs, be sure to let them be known when booking a room. For example, some rooms don't have desks, and each has a uniquely arranged sitting area.

The Crawford's flagship rooms are known as the Pullman Rooms. While some feel a little smaller under a slanted ceiling, the idea is to evoke the feeling of a sleeper car on a luxury train with Art Deco decor (think train travel–inspired art and mahogany with bursts of color). Perhaps even more in line with the theme -- all Pullman Rooms look out onto the train platform and tracks. To ensure this remains a novel experience (and not a nightmare), every room at the Crawford is fully soundproofed.
