Excellent Experience

Gourmet food each morning, convenient location, spacious and quite rooms. The hosts are warm and engaging and quick to offer suggestions, advice or service. This is a great place to stay in every way. We will certainly be back! Jerry and David

Don't miss this amazing gem!

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Capitol Hill Mansion while in Denver for our daughter's wedding and we had the best time staying at the Inn. The owner, Karl, and his daughter, Bailey, are hospitable beyond words! Our daughter and future son-in-law joined us for breakfast one morning and our daughter and her maid of honor joined us for breakfast the 2nd morning. We enjoyed a wonderful gormet breakfast outside in the "secret gardein" as our daughter referred to it. The Inn is in pristine condition and the rooms are beyond comfortable. Our room, on the 3rd floor, had a small balcony that was charming. The location is so convenient to all of the cultural offerings of Denver but yet affords a great "neighborhood" experience, as well. The atmosphere is so laid back and the other guests seemed to be seasoned "B and B" travelers, as we are, too. But even if this is your first "B and B" experience, you will be very comfortable and will never go back to impersonal hotels again :) Don't miss this gem! Our daughter, who lives just 2 blocks away, said that she and her husband are going to stay there sometime just to be part of this historical masterpiece!

A Night in a Silver Magnate's Mansion

For Bed & Breakfast lovers, this is as good as it gets. You will enjoy the well kept rooms and the Western hospitality of Carl & Bailey. Capitol Hill is family owned and operated and it has the feel of a home away from home.

Gorgeous downtown Denver pampering!

Never have I stayed at a cleaner, friendlier, more comfortable bed and breakfast. The food is the best and the service and staff are incredible. In fact, we've all become good friends! Carl & Bailey understand what it takes to run an exemplary bed and breakfast!

As a writer, I often need a quiet escape to plow through a manuscript. Capitol Hill Mansion is perfect... lots of places to work, close to great coffee, and one of Carl's breakfasts will feed you for the day. Amazing. If I'm not working, it's a great getaway for me and my husband!

Spring Evening

5 on May 02, 2013

We had a lovely spring evening with a walk to the nearby Denver Art Museum. The Inn is beautiful, the owners very nice and the food was delicious. I really appreciated how clean everything was, and they didn't miss a thing in making the stay a pleasant one. Good job

Wonderfully Elegant

I really liked this B&B and it was wonderful to be able to stretch out in my large room (the Forget-Me-Not) and gather my thoughts and emotions after a 5-state and 9-night road trip. This old and historical B&B is in the heart of the Capitol District but isn't noisy. I had a beautiful four-poster bed that was very comfortable and cozy. My breakfast was hearty and filling and Carl and Bailey were so friendly. Off-road parking with free Wi-Fi enabled me to relax and catch up on my travels before getting a good night's sleep. I liked using the old-fashioned writing desk and also loved the turret in my room, complete with long windows! Loved the décor and lovely appointments throughout the house. Adrienne

Pleasantly perfect Denver mansion B&B stay.

Simply one of the best bed & breakfasts in which we’ve vacationed. Immaculate in its cleanliness, this beautifully restored Victorian mansion is a comfortable mix of Victorian style with modern amenities such as internet wi-fi, gas fireplaces and electronic security. Our top floor room contained a deep soft comfy queen size bed with plenty of pillows, windows with a pleasant neighborhood view, an excellent selection of coffee and teas with a hot pot and quality soap and hair sundries. The room in which we stayed, named The Pasque Flower Room, most importantly sported an irresistible and often used 6’ Jacuzzi tub housed in the mansions turret. The morning of each day of our stay Carl, the mansion owner, cooked up a different sumptuous gourmet breakfast for my girlfriend and me and would, later in the day, sometimes surprise us with the occasional unexpected confectionary treat. The Capitol Hill Mansion is not only easy walking distance from most every point of interest in downtown Denver, it also offers ample car park spaces. A premium commodity in Denver. The owner and his family helped make our five night Denver vacation pleasantly memorable.

Beautiful Home

We stayed at the Capitol Hill Mansion B&B two nights while in Denver visiting family. Our son and daughter had given us a gift certificate for one night as a Christmas present. We stayed in the Bluebell suite which was roomy, clean and comfortable. We really appreciated the outside entrance. Breakfast was delicious and filling. The owners, Carl and Bailey were extremely nice and very responsive to our requests.
