This time of year Downtown Denver is bustling. From the many restaurants, bars and stores, there is no better place to find some holiday cheer. If you are planning to be in the area and looking for a place to stay, look not further than the Halcyon Hotel in the charming Cherry Creek district.
The 154-room hotel is just steps away from Cherry Creek’s renowned shopping features three restaurants, a state of the art gym, bike rentals and a rooftop deck with a pool that now also features Denver’s only rooftop ice-skating rink where guests can enjoy elevated views of the Rocky Mountains and the Mile High city. “We can’t wait to kick off the holiday season with our first-ever rooftop ice skating experience, as well as the Holiday Bake Shop, curated by our talented pastry chef Saura Kline,” said McClinton Heil, managing director of Halcyon. “Our holiday offerings are a chance for our team to connect with the local community and for the community to connect with one another—we’re excited to provide that catalyst in the clouds, with sweet treats, traditional holiday meals, overnight stays and more.”
