Where to Eat
McCormick's Fish House and Bar - Daily seafood specials are served for lunch and dinner weekdays in the wood-paneled dining room. Saturday lunch is served in the adjacent lounge, a lively bar frequented by locals and businesspeople. McCormick's Sunday brunch is also popular.
The Cruise Room - This sophisticated bar opened to much hoopla the day after Prohibition was repealed, and was renovated in 1933 to resemble a lounge on RMS Queen Mary. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it remains a popular downtown institution. Genuine Art-Deco decor and wall panels depict light-hearted "toasts" from around the world. Open late, serving from a full bar and upscale pub menu.
Nearby Things to Do
Guests have complimentary access to the Oxford Club Spa & Salon, that offers an ideal urban escape for men and women seeking relaxation and renewal. Inside an elegant Victorian building built in 1912 is a fitness club and a full service spa and salon that is open to the public. The downtown Denver spa and salon, the first in Denver, opened its doors in 1987 after award-winning preservationist and visionary Dana Crawford saw a need for an urban sanctuary.
