Named for Dana Crawford, the legendary preservationist who spearheaded the restoration of Larimer Square, this new entry into the Denver hotel landscape effortlessly meshes old and new. First off, its location in historic Union Station is old, but the new news is a $500 million redevelopment completed in 2014. Likewise, the rooms, lofts, and suites hark back to days past with handpicked Western art (including plenty of railroad relics and jackalope heads) and classic style, but they also feature ultra-modern amenities like smart TVs and tiered Internet service. The hotel even has a Tesla that will ferry you around downtown. The restored depot is home to plenty of restaurants, bars, and shops, and the location—right at the hub of light rail in Denver—is ideal.
