Magnolia Hotel Denver

Shoes: high-heels

I'd heard Harry's Bar was a local "hangout" for businesspersons on their way home, but it wasn't until yesterday that I was able to enjoy the fascinating people-watching and HUGE appetizers (14 mini-hamburger sliders with mango salsa!) at Harry's Bar, a part of Magnolia Hotel Denver.

This summer the 246-room property completed a $7 Million renovation from top to bottom, including new paint, carpet, furnishings, bedding, d├ęcor and fixtures throughout. Bathrooms were redone with oversized Kohler porcelain sinks, marble tile and new fixtures. The Magnolia has a new, enhanced linen package that rivals the world’s finest hotels—guests are already raving about the incredibly comfortable bedding. Consisting of a top-of-the-line Sealy mattress, a mattress topper and mattress pad, 300-thread-count sheets, a triple-sheeted down blanket and an accent throw, plus two white goose down-filled pillows and two poly-filled pillows, the deluxe bedding ensemble ensures a restful night’s sleep. New furnishings include contemporary dark wood tables, dressers and nightstands in classic, clean lines, along with oversized sofas and chairs. Historical elements including the architecturally alluring 11-and-12-foot tall ceilings with crown molding and oversized original windows make the guestrooms and suites open and inviting. The rooms are again funky, and perfect for both pleasure and business guests. Business guests will particularly like the oversized safes, with enough space to secure your laptop!

Probably the best part are the nooks and crannies, reminiscent of the 70's, located throughout the downstairs in the Magnolia Club. Their “Mag Time” concept offers complimentary hot American buffet breakfast, evening happy hour, and a bedtime fresh-baked cookie and milk buffet, amounting to extraordinary value.

Harry's Bar is a great spot for hanging out with the locals, and Magnolia Hotel Denver is a funky hotel, Old World meets funky yet classy 70s.

Until next time, Diana
