Modern Amenities Meet Historic Charm at Hotel Teatro

Modern amenities meet historic charm at Hotel Teatro, Downtown Denver’s original boutique hotel. Hotel Teatro blends Denver’s history with the comforts of today, inviting you to experience a stay like no other. Hotel Teatro is often sought out by travelers who want to be in the heart of downtown Denver and who have read about the historic ancestry of the building.


Unique History

In 1911, two architects set out to design an eight-story office tower for the Denver Tramway Company. Much Denver history revolves around the Tramway building, which has been designated both a Denver and a National Registered Landmark. The Denver Tramway trolleys were in service in Downtown Denver from the 1880s until June 3, 1950. Too elegant and sturdy to be demolished, the Tramway offices were soon used by the University of Colorado at Denver. The Tramway Building’s official “reincarnation” kicked off in 1994, when the building was purchased by the Tramway Hotel, LLC. With the assistance of a grant from the State Historical Fund, reconstruction began in 1997 to transform the Tramway building into a hotel. After a significant rehabilitation, the landmark reappeared in 1999 as the 110-room Hotel Teatro.

Many properties market themselves as boutique; however, Hotel Teatro is the Mile High City’s Original boutique hotel – with unparalleled service standards and accolades to match.


What Makes a Property Truly Boutique

Boutique properties are typically classified so by being smaller in size, up-to-date with trends and style and are often set in fashionable urban locations. Hotel Teatro honors these appeals by offering upscale amenities including a complimentary car service, deep soaking tubs, curated stays via their Guest Experience Manager and front desk agents, along with a stylish community gathering space, The Study. Hotel guests and locals alike can also enjoy locally sourced meals at Hotel Teatro’s onsite restaurant, The Nickel.

Blending rustic charm with industrial detail, our lively dining room is downtown Denver’s best-kept secret. Join us for Happy Hour from 4-6 Tuesday-Saturday and enjoy newly crafted appetizers and drinks at our Nickel Bar.


Luxury Amenities

Hotel Teatro hosts a complimentary happy hour in The Study from 5-6pm every night– includes bottled beer, crafted can cocktails, or a glass of wine.

To assist guests in exploring all that Denver has to offer, we also offer a complimentary luxury car service within 2.5 miles of the hotel. Additionally, guests have access to Hotel Teatro custom vintage cruiser bicycles throughout their stay.
