The Essex

Uptown, Denver

Decorated with Victorian-era and red brick houses, Uptown mixes old-style architecture with modern-day amenities. Welcome to The Essex. This three-story brick building entices you with white trim and wrought iron details. As you step through the front door you’ll find beautiful hardwood floors, intricate historic touches, and expansive windows illuminating each space. Once you’re settled, take a walk down the block to one of Denver’s most eclectic streets, East Colfax. Play dress-up in the vintage shops. Let your tastebuds explore a new cocktail at a cozy dive bar. Or grab tickets to a show at the Ogden Theatre. Enjoy a breath of fresh air at City Park. Your ears will perk up as you hear animals chatter at the Denver Zoo. Stay for sunset and marvel as your eyes dance along the mountain ridge. Make a dinner reservation at a Denver favorite, Steuben’s (we recommend the Steubie snacks). End your night at Retrograde for an ice cream cone or a fancy cocktail in their speakeasy-style bar. Drop your bags at The Essex and explore this mile-high city.
