Hotel Overview

TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Badge
TripAdvisor Travelers Choice Award

The Best Western Denver Southwest is the perfect destination for visitors seeking a convenient location just minutes from both downtown Denver and the Rocky Mountain foothills. Our hotel offers superbly appointed accommodations and a wide variety of amenities ideal for business and leisure travelers alike.

Show More / Less

Uniquely situated in suburban Denver, the hotel provides easy access to the nearby Denver Zoo, Pepsi Center, Coors Field, Botanical Gardens, Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Elitch Gardens Amusement Park, Bel Mar Shopping Center, and the 16th Street Mall. If you plan to spend some time exploring the foothills and Rocky Mountains, our location affords incomparable access to some of the best attractions and day hiking available on the Front Range. Take in a summer concert at the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheater, or enjoy the thrill of drag racing at Bandimere Speedway, both less than a ten minute drive from our hotel.

Each of our immaculately clean and comfortable guest rooms are furnished with 40-inch flat screen televisions and more than 60 channels of HD programming, including HBO®. For your convenience, complimentary Wi-Fi access, microwaves, refrigerators, and coffee makers are also provided in every room.

Our one of a kind, year round outdoor heated pool and hot tub were designed to imitate the shorelines of the Cretaceous Interior Seaway which covered Colorado more than 100 million years ago. The hotel boasts a strong sense of prehistoric regional identity in a nod to early paleontological explorations of the area. You may feel as if you walking through a natural history museum as you peruse our collection of replica artifacts, dig panels, and fossils found throughout the lobby building and hotel.

Enjoy the best that Denver has to offer and still find time to take in the scenic beauty of Colorado while experiencing the same great service and value you have come to expect at the Best Western Denver Southwest.
