Located directly in Denver’s Union Station (the city’s main railway station), this hotel couldn’t be any more convenient for families. The 112 guestrooms are all unique. No two rooms are alike in this historic space. Some feature 14-foot ceilings and others are designed like a train car. All of the guestrooms feature free Wi-Fi, in-room iPad access to view news and magazines, two bottles of water and a coffee maker. The dog friendly hotel also offers Tesla courtesy transportation within two-miles of the hotel and priority seating at the restaurant Snooze in Union Station (wait times can be extra long at this popular breakfast spot).

This hotel is THE place to stay in Denver. Centrally located within the fantastic redeveloped Union Station.
The rooms are spacious and well appointed and the staff are always available to assist where needed. But it is the Union station itself which makes a stay at the Crawford so memorable. The selection of high quality food/beverage and specialty stores within the building is very impressive - several with special deals for those staying at the Crawford.
But why oh why has the Crawford decided to levy the dreaded US$20/night 'Resort Fee' (payable at the hotel in addition to the accommodation charge) on those choosing to stay here? It is a real blight on what was otherwise a memorable part of my US vacation.
The imposition of the Back Door Resort Fee added to the published rates detracts from what would otherwise be a 5 star review.
My boyfriend and I decided to stay at The Crawford Hotel after our friends had such a great time. The staff was beyond amazing- they were welcoming, friendly and attentive to everyone's needs. We were upgraded to a loft style room which was amazing with exposed brick walls and wooden beams. The Tesla was an amazing touch and was able to take us to dinner nearby. We loved all the little items you get being a guest- especially the craft beer and ice cream. We will most definitely be back!
