Glenwood Springs Colorado

The Best Colorado Mountain Town

If you’re going to get stuck on a road trip, Glenwood Springs, Colorado is the place! Vail Pass (10,666′ mountain pass over the Rocky Mountains) was closed due to a snowstorm so we were lucky to enjoy an extra day. We loved it so much, now we always make this a two night minimum stop. *Note- make sure to plan for unpredictable weather when traveling through Colorado in April.

We’ve stayed in a few different hotels in Glenwood Springs and so far Hotel Denver is our favorite dog-friendly hotel. Their service is consistent and above and beyond every time. It’s a super convenient location- walkable in town with an attached brewpub and in-house coffee shop. There’s also great community space which we love to hang out or work.

The rooms are historic (Doc Holliday stayed at The Hotel Denver) and so pretty with beautiful views.

The Glenwood Hot Springs are right across the river with a walkable bridge to enjoy all the health benefits of a dip.

We loved the food from the Brewpub too. It’s great atmosphere and I appreciate gluten free options. The coffee shop rocks too!
