The Westin - Denver, CO
January 01, 2011 • Hotel
In the heart of a bustling metropolitan downtown beats the heart of a Fido-friendly four-diamond hotel. Go mile high and take a trek to Denver, Colorado, for some Rocky Mountain hospitality at The Westin Denver Downtown (formerly known as Westin Tabor).
Despite its hub-of-the-city location, parking is plentiful at the on-site parkade. The attentive valet service took care of our needs and displayed extreme graciousness to our pooch. The rooms are some of the largest we have stayed in, and Fido is welcome to do some “chillaxing” on Westin’s Heavenly Bed®. So divine are the pillows, bed and linens that Westin makes them available for purchase…
With a grassy area for Fido nearby, access to a host of Fido-friendly stores and amenities at the 16th Street Mall, the Westin Denver is a picture-perfect hotel when staying in the Denver area...
Go Mile High and take a trek to Denver, Colorado for some doggone Fido friendly fun!!
We visited the Denver, Colorado region and stayed at the Westin Downtown Denver where we discovered just how Fido welcoming and enjoyable the nearby 16th Street Mall area is.
In the heart of Denver’s downtown area is a mile-long pedestrian mall. This tree-lined region is a mile long and brimming with shops, chain stores, quaint boutiques, and plenty of cafes and eateries.
FIDO is welcome to explore this region with you, as it is conveniently located in the heart of the downtown Denver district.
Many of the restaurants and cafes allow Fido to eat with you outside as you watch the passersby and enjoy the feel of a small town within the surroundings of big city. We chose the Corner Bakery Café, where toasty panninis, grilled sandwiches, and divine desserts made for a delectable outdoor dining experience (highly recommended: the lemon bars).
Be sure to stop by the Barkin’ Boutique and Bakery for some Fido gourmet treats and goodies (note: we love the glow-in-the-dark “My Mummy Loves Me” Halloween shirt).
Stop for some gelato, window shop, have a sample of Rocky Mountain chocolate (the apples are oh-so-worth the trip), and grab some Broncos souvenirs along this downtown district’s pathways.
Check out this video FIDO Friendly shot and make this one of your “places to spend a day” the next time you are in the Denver area.
