If Marie Antoinette had made it to Colorado, this is where she’d stay. The historic hotel in the thick of the theater district has remodeled rooms with cherry finishes and luxe bathrooms, plus a staff who anticipate needs you didn’t know you had. But what puts this hotel firmly in awards territory is its food. Expect one of the “top five meals of your life” at Restaurant Kevin Taylor, where the menu—say, coconut mascarpone grits or chocolate toffee fondant—is worth scrapbooking.
