Located at the heart of Downtown Denver, just two blocks from Union Station is The Maven at Dairy Block, one of the city’s most stylish hospitality properties.  The urban boutique hotel exudes a trendy and vibrant vibe from the moment you set foot through its welcoming front entrance.  The industrial design and loft style guestrooms are detailed with eclectic touches and comfortable luxury.  We loved being located right in the center of the micro-district Dairy Block which boasts a plethora of local businesses, stylish cafes and eateries, and a colourful and energetic scene.

Our spacious double queen room was perfect for those traveling with young children and featured a private balcony overlooking Dairy Block’s lively ambiance.  Each evening guests are treated to a complimentary happy hour and we loved sampling the creative cocktails at Poka Lola before heading to the on-site Mexican restaurant, Kachina, for a mouthwatering meal.  The Maven’s buzzing lobby acts as a modern social space with long tables optimal for co-working, cozy couches where you can congregate with friends, and plenty of restaurants and bars just steps from the front entrance.  The hotel also offers a state of the art fitness center, complimentary courtesy car within a 2 mile radius, and accommodating staff always on hand to make the best local suggestions for your city break.  We had an amazing stay exploring the area on foot, shopping in nearby districts, and even found ourselves just minutes from the famous Coors Field.  The Maven at Dairy Block is a fun and friendly home away from home for family or solo travelers looking for a bustling and unique area while visiting Denver.
