Whether it's the incredible museums, the historic music scene, a passion for hiking the Rockies or 300 days of sunshine per year that bring you to Denver, Stay Alfred on California Street is the ideal place to get your vacation started.
Revel in the uber-cool vibes of Five Points, an area that features in Jack Kerouac's On The Road, and the equally cool amenities at Stay Alfred's luxurious modern apartments. With access to a pool, spa and cutting-edge fitness facilities, not to mention some of the best microbreweries in the country right on your doorstep, your swanky new digs are the only way to see Mile High City in style.
A neighborhood full of soul
Five Points is a colorful multicultural neighborhood with a celebrated musical history – Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis have all played here. Spend an evening listening to indie music acts at Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom or Mercury Cafe and you'll appreciate just why this neighborhood is the center of Denver's music culture. Dynamic bars, gourmet cafes and friendly restaurants serving up classic soul food are currently enhancing Five Points' culinary reputation too, and the neighborhood does some of the best Caribbean food and barbeque you'll find anywhere in the city. Throw in a raft of craft breweries springing up everywhere, and you'll have trouble packing it all into your stay.
Your Stay Alfred apartment is only a 13-minute walk from Coors Field, so you can go cheer for your team – and admire breathtaking views of the Rockies – without worrying about traffic or parking. The National Ballpark Museum is right next door, with its exhibitions of classic baseball memorabilia from the early 1900s. You're also less than a mile from several theaters, including the beautiful Art Deco Paramount Theater, and Denver Center for the Performing Arts, a sprawling complex of theaters, concert halls and opera houses that has hosted some major Broadway shows.
The major sights of downtown are around 15 minutes away on the light rail, and include the Colorado State Capitol and History Colorado Center. The Denver Botanic Gardens are a must-see for their interactive Science Pyramid and concerts hosted in the sunken amphitheater, and nature-lovers will also get a kick out of the capybaras, kangaroos and komodo dragons at Denver Zoo. The sleek modern architecture at Denver Art Museum is almost impressive as their collections of fashion, furniture and Native American art, while the Clyfford Still Museum next door specializes in the abstract expressionism that made its namesake famous.
A little luxury pampering
You might be coming to Denver for the amazing hiking and climbing, but there's plenty of adventure to be had on the climbing wall in your building's state-of-the-art fitness center. If you prefer a more traditional workout, there's also cardio and strength-training equipment, an invigorating yoga studio, and a spinning room to really get you sweating.
If you're here on business or you just want a little peace and quiet to get things done, Stay Alfred on California Street features work pods with community WiFi where you can easily knock out your to-do list, along with a conference room for extra space or brainstorming sessions.
All work and no play isn't in the Five Points spirit, so when you're done come hang out in the resident's lounge, with its snug fireplace, pool table and very lounge-able couches. Both outdoor decks – that's right, there are two! – have grilling areas and cozy fire features, and the urban oasis with swimming pool and luxurious spa is the perfect place to pamper yourself at the end of the day.
Your home away from home
There's more to your Stay Alfred digs than just a place to rest your head. Each apartment comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, so you've got plenty of space to cook all the fresh local produce you've bought at Denver's bustling farmers' markets. And coffee connoisseurs don't need to worry – the kitchen facilities include a proper coffee machine, and Five Points is full of first-rate coffee shops. No more trying to balance takeout on your knees when your apartment has a full-size dining table and all the plates and flatware you need.
We make check-in easy with keyless entry in every unit, so all you need is your smartphone. Connect all your devices to our high-speed WiFi and you can get started arranging meetings or looking up bars as soon as you unpack. And at the end of a busy day of work or sightseeing, what better way to relax than with a beer on your balcony while you admire sensational views of the Denver skyline.
