When travelers are away from the comforts of home, there is no better way to start off a day than with a complimentary hotel breakfast. Denver happens to have some fabulous hotels that offer that all-important beginning to the day.

The Residence Inn Denver City Center

Denver, CO 80202

The delicious selection of breakfast goodies including eggs, sausage, hashbrowns, waffles and assorted fruits, yogurts and juices is masterfully prepared by Chef Stuart Gonzales with help from Food and Beverage Director Sergio Barba, Carlos Garcia and the beloved bartender, Kelly Miller. Most of the staff has been serving guests at the Residence Inn since its opening in 2006 and their warm, inviting personalities have guests coming back year after year. If you are staying downtown for just one night or on an extended stay, The Residence Inn Denver City Center has everything you need – including a free happy hour Monday through Thursday for guests which includes complimentary beer and wine with a light dinner.

Denver Magnolia Hotel
818 17th St.
Denver, CO 80202
(303) 607-9000

Guests at the Denver Magnolia Hotel start their day off with a delicious free full breakfast at the hotel. However, one of the best parts will definitely be the welcome home with the warm cookies and cold milk. In addition to these special treats is a free wine and beer reception to top off the relaxation. Not only is the breakfast tasty, but the coffee is good and the happy hour is worth a trip from the comfortable room. The overall theme of the hotel is carried through to the guestrooms with beautiful décor mixed perfectly with the comfort of home. Although the Magnolia is just a little over a block from the 16th Street Mall, it will be difficult for guests to tear themselves away from the pampering.
