I spent a total of 2 weeks at the Chalet in Denver and I am excited to return as soon as possible! Like the title states, the people are what makes the Chalet a wonderful place to stay while in Denver. The staff was so accommodating and genuinely positive in attitude and willing to help me feel welcome while staying...

Stopped at this B&B on my way for a convention. Did not want to bore the spouse with a usual hotel stay. Wow, close to COORS Fiel (9 min), Voodoo Magic Doughnuts (3min) & Denver Chop Steakhouse. A 120 years old building with current commodities. Includes breakfast, cookies, popcorn and all the DVDs you care to watch. Excellent, different and...

Lovely. Breakfast was top not he eve had almond milk! My room was clean and roomy. The customer service was outstanding. I can't imagine what a let down stay in in a hotel is going to be when I have to travel to somewhere other than Denver. Absolutely fabulous and in an excellent location with many walkable places to visit...

The Holiday Chalet is quite charming and the owners have paid attention to the finest details to make their guests comfortable and welcome. There are both historic and modern amenities that make it a very comfortable place to stay. Everyone we encountered was positively friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, HC sits directly on Colfax, a very busy street and with the...

I booked 2 rooms in this B&B, a queen for my husband and myself, and 2 queens on the 2nd floor for our mothers. On the good side, the staff was friendly and helpful, and they serve a great breakfast. On the bad side, the place was shabby but moderately clean. However, the worst was when we discovered the 9...

After years and years of business the holiday Chalet is now better than ever. It's walking distance from 3 music venues which is what makes it easy to stay. It's in the middle of everything that you want to do in Denver. Most importantly they are dog friendly.

My fiance and I love B&B's! This is our 5th one we have stayed at and we will NEVER go back! I am not sure where to even begin. When we first got there we had to park on a very busy street. We knew about that before arriving and that was not a deal breaker but the group of...

Rooms are old-fashioned but very clean and I felt as at home. There was plenty of space in the roon even having a small kitchen and an oriel. You feel the long history of this building. Breakfast was very good. Unfortunately, they do not serve it before 7:30 am but there was also the possibility to go to the dining...

The Holiday Chalet is a gorgeous albeit old victorian mansion turned B&B. Located on edgy gritty Colfax Avenue at High Street - superb launching site for an urban adventure. Within walking distance of the Fillmore, the Bluebird, Twist and Shout, Tattered Cover, Botanic Gardens, the Zoo, the Museum of Nature and Science. Just a short sometimes B-movie-esque bus ride to...

We reserved a room for three nights. When we arrived, they said they had been having problems with double-booking and they had us down for only one night. To stay three nights, we would have to move from one room to another each day, for a total of three different rooms. We went elsewhere.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel is a fully-restored Victorian, brownstone mansion originally built in 1896 for prominent Denver jeweler Henry Bohm of Bohm Jewelers. Elegant period décor along with high ceilings, hardwood floors, intricate moldings, private baths and kitchens make us Denver's most alluring and comfortable bed and breakfast. From our eclectic Capitol Hill location visitors enjoy Denver's best sight-seeing, shopping, music, art, and nightlife all within minutes of our front door-the neighborhood described in the Jack Kerouac classic, On the Road. The Holiday Chalet enjoys the benefit of an exciting, high-energy central location within the vibrant heart of the city amid an eclectic mixture of shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues. The creative spirit in our neighborhood appeals to artists, architects, designers, writers and musicians alike. However, enveloping warmth, charm, comfort, and security within the hotel also make The Holiday Chalet a convenient home away from home for business and leisure travelers alike. As a Bed and Breakfast we begin each morning in true style with a full, home-cooked breakfast served from 7:30 to 10:00 am. A variety of delicious homemade offerings are made fresh including Cowboy pancakes, crustless veggie or bacon quiche, French toast, eggs and bacon, fresh fruits, juice, tea, and premium coffee. ... more   less
