My girlfriend and I had an amazing stay here. We were desperate for a place because our plans had fallen through, there was a conference in the neighborhood, and when we arrived we had no where to go. The staff was more than accommodating when they heard of our predicament and gave us a cute little room in the staff's quarters. The house has a lot of quirky charm; it is definitely a nice break from all the super-new developments and construction happening in the area. I was not sketched out by the neighborhood as other reviewers have said, it is close to everything downtown, has a lovely outdoor area and the breakfast was delicious and prepared with a lot of love. I will definitely be coming back to this little gem.

I got to Denver in the morning, long before Check-In time at the Holiday Chalet, but the hostess was gracious to let me in while they prepared my room early. I chose the Holiday Chalet because it was close enough (2 miles) to walk to my convention downtown, and allowed me to see a lot of the City. Yes, the neighborhood is maybe not the greatest, but the staff and accommodations were superb!

I have stayed at the Holiday Chalet several times. Each time I have had a lovely time. If I am hungry Crystal (owner) always has something to nibble on. Homemade brownies and chocolate chip cookies are always available. I love the boutique. It is a great place to buy a gift for others or yourself. The Holiday Chalet is located in the heart of Denver. There is so much to do and to see. Sightseeing, shopping, eating etc. I live in the suburbs of Denver so being downtown is a change. The Holiday Chalet is pet friendly which I really like. Sunday brunch is superb. I can't wait to stay again.

The Holiday Chalet is divine and superior compared to any other B & B. This beautiful mansion as one of Denver’s leading B & B’s, is most certainly worth a visit. Why, you ask? Each room has a unique design and is extremely bright and colorful and floral. If you love flowers (most of us do), then Holiday Chalet is like a garden filled with bouquets. The owner Crystal Sharp’s taste will uplift your spirits and make you smile! Trying to impress your man or woman has never been easier in Crystal’s designer fitted sheets and comforters. Her beds are comfortable and flattering for any couple. Crystal’s mansion has socially accepted single men and woman whom come to enjoy eventing in Denver also. This is a great home! You know what else is amazing about Crystal’s home? Mostly just that she is a humane soul and warrior. She caters to four legged creatures. She has a huge backyard for pets to play and frolic and sniff greenery. She also has pet treats for good little babies and food for an extra fee. Another part of this enchantment was this… I literally could not keep my hands off Crystal’s secret recipe chocolate Chip Cookies… Yummm… Speaking of eating… Holiday Chalet’s morning breakfast was served on a plate of China and was covered in delicious Salmon Loc’s and Cream Cheese… Caper’s and all! Ok… I know I have said a lot however, beautiful divinity rang when her morning cook, who was both attractive and smart served my breakfast. Crystal and her crew have stunning good looks and keep this B & B very handsome. As for fame and fortune, her visitors both famous and nice, seemed ordinary and fun. This easy down to earth feel was a nice part of my morning… Blood and guts film makers, to rocks stars, to nation’s leading mens girlfriends, medical doctor’s from Harvard, and some of Crystal’s friends made this really comfortable. I felt both prestigious and at home. I love when everyone turns out to be just normal folks. Crystal is so popular and decadent!!!
