Denver, Colorado, is one of the coolest cities in the United States. Known as The Mile High City due to its location almost a mile above sea level, Denver is home to great music, a thriving performing arts scene, hip places to eat and drink, and a buzzing student community.

We’ve rounded up a selection of our best picks for where to stay in Denver:
