Colorado’s capital was founded in 1858 after General William Larimer placed cottonwood logs on the land adjacent to the South Platte River.

The neighborhood is home to the Rockies stadium, Union Station and many iconic spots.

Brown Palace Club

President Eisenhower and his wife frequented Denver often. The Brown Palace Club once served as campaign headquarters for Dwight D. Eisenhower prior to his election as president. During their visits, The Brown always served as the Western White House. The Club also served as a gentlemen’s private club until the 1980s.

 

Silver Plume

357 SQ. FT.  |  FLOOR PLAN

The town of Silver Plume was named in remembrance of the silver found in the small mountain town during the mid-19th century. Silver Plume’s railroad was originally expected to continue onto Leadville. Instead the railroad ended up serving the mining camps between Denver and the small town. Today the famous Georgetown-Silver Plume train travels between the two towns, separated by two miles and an elevation difference of 600 feet.

Georgetown

400 SQ. FT.  |  FLOOR PLAN

The historic town of Georgetown saw years of prospecting, first gold, then silver, causing the town’s population to fluctuate. In 1893, the Sherman Silver Purchase Act wiped out many fortunes in Georgetown and silver camps throughout Colorado. Henry Brown was forced to mortgage The Brown Palace as a result.

Leadville

336 SQ. FT.  |  FLOOR PLAN

In 1877, the Colorado Silver Boom began in Leadville and made the fortunes of Horace Tabor, J.J. Brown (Molly Brown’s husband), the Guggenheims and the Boettchers. Charles Boettcher’s hardware store was located right across the street from Tabor’s Clarendon Hotel, formerly managed by William Bush.

Central City

2150 SQ. FT.  |  FLOOR PLAN

Central City’s population grew to 10,000 people after gold was discovered in 1859. It eventually became known as ‘the richest square mile on earth.’ The town’s famous hotel, The Teller House, was managed by William Bush. Bush also co-managed The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa with N. Maxcy Tabor.

Cripple Creek

340 SQ. FT.  |  FLOOR PLAN

Cripple Creek gave rise to many who would become associated with The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa. Notable figures who began their careers in the early mining town include: prospector and philanthropist W.S. Stratton, real estate developer Horace W. Bennett, and mining magnate Henry M. Blackmer. Blackmer’s son and daughter-in-law later resided in an apartment on the top floor of the hotel.

Prospector Suite

FLOOR PLAN

The Prospector Suite was originally designed as 11 guests rooms. Today’s Prospector Suite offers many design options, all of them with elegantly draped windows overlooking Denver’s financial district.

Boettcher Board Room

365 SQ. FT.  |  FLOOR PLAN

Named for the three generations of Boettchers, who owned The Brown Palace from 1922 until 1980, this board room tucked away on the eighth floor conveniently adjoins to an executive one-bedroom suite (if needed). It features a cherry conference table, perfect for up to 14 persons, with leather executive-style chairs and large windows with views to the southeast.

Coronet Room

672 SQ. FT.  |  FLOOR PLAN

In 1911, Coronet was the site of room 321 occupied by China’s Dr. Sun Yat-Sun. The doctor was visiting Denver to raise funds for the overthrow of the Ch’ing Dynasty. News of the revolution reached him while staying here, upon which he immediately returned home. He was then elected provisional president of the new Republic of China on January 1, 1912. Today Coronet features large windows, a restroom and its own wet bar.

Stratton Room

437 SQ. FT.  |  FLOOR PLAN

Winfield Scott Stratton discovered the Independence Mine near Cripple Creek, Colorado on July 4, 1891. Stratton became involved with The Brown Palace in the early 1900s when he acquired Henry Brown’s outstanding mortgages. He remained part of the hotel’s ownership until it was purchased by Horace W. Bennett and Charles Boettcher in 1922. This adjoining room can now be opened to create the Onyx Suite.

Tabor Room

483 SQ. FT.  |  FLOOR PLAN

This meeting facility, once known as an Executive Chamber, was set aside for regional sales conferences.  It was renamed the Tabor Room to honor one of The Brown Palace’s first general managers, N. Maxcy Tabor, son of Horace and Augusta Tabor. Since 1955, it has been the site of countless family photographs for the annual Denver Debutante Ball. This space opens to the Onyx and Stratton Rooms.

Gold Room

500 SQ. FT.  |  FLOOR PLAN

Once known as the Wedgewood room, the Gold Room adjoins the Onyx. It features walnut paneling, a gold sunburst wall clock and marble fireplace. In 1997, the Gold Room was transformed to the Oval Office for US President Bill Clinton’s bi-lateral meetings with world leaders during the G7 Summit.

Onyx Room

1425 SQ. FT.  |  FLOOR PLAN

When the hotel opened in 1892, the Onyx Room was known as the Grand Salon. The room featured white-onyx wainscoting and columns, as well as a medallion mural on the ceiling. After a century of aging, the hotel commissioned artist M. Lloyd Way to recreate the medallion mural. The new mural was inspired by writing on the hotel’s original brochure: “here are blue skies and soft fleecy clouds amid which rosy, blossom-wreathed cupids disport themselves”. M. Lloyd Way added a personal touch by painting the cupid’s faces to resemble his family and friends.

Grand Ballroom

5800 SQ. FT.  |  FLOOR PLAN

Our elegant ballroom has hosted weddings, galas and countless notable events such as, the appearance of Sir Humphrey ‘a Hereford yearling’ at the Junior League Ball in 1962, the Colorado Inaugural Ball in 1968, and a dinner for French President Valery Giscard d’Estaing in 2001.
