Did you know?

dinoplackThe Best Western Denver Southwest is just a stone’s throw from the geological and paleontological goldmine where the Great Plains meets the Rocky Mountains.

To celebrate the natural beauty of the area as well as the romance  and adventure of the classic 19th century fossil expedition, we’ve renovated from the rooftop to the bedrock and relaunched as a dinosaur-themed hotel that will bring out the explorer in all of us.

Our ultimate goal is to create an immersive experience that echoes an old explorers’ club.

“Great price, great hotel.”

My favorite Best Western so far. Hotel is decorated with dinosaur fossils, which is a fun background. Rooms are modern and big. Breakfast is great – Eggs made to order and yogurt among with all the usuals. Restaurant on-site that we didn’t get to try.

“Classic Business hotel with a Colorado twist”

The lobby has beautiful stone tiles and antique wooden and glass cases– it looks like a classic study from an old movie. There are books, casts, fossils, and decorations about dinosaurs in the lobby– so it’s very cool. It is slightly stunning to see such a beautiful lobby– looks like it belongs in a museum.

“Great value; Great Stay Near DEN”

Breakfast service was terrific. Love the omelettes and the heated outdoor pool. The bartender on Wed night was excellent. Very knowledgeable about the local brews; played great music and very friendly. Beds and TV are top notch. Thankfully no more bedspreads. A great place for us when we are in the DEN area.
