Historic Brown Palace Hotel, Denver, CO - Travel Log

posted on: September 27, 2016

While visiting other cities, one of my favorite things to do is to check out historic architecture to see what still remains of an era gone by, and the Brown Palace Hotel in Denver, CO did not disappoint...

Brown Palace Hotel Atrium Balconies

Upon walking into the atrium, I looked up and my jaw dropped in awe.  The iron work of the balconies, the under arch sconces, the carved woodwork, but most impressive was of course the delicate stained glass ceiling.  This is one of those sites that I could spend days documenting every little detail - getting lost in the subtleties and craftsmanship.

It could be considered the Flat Iron of Denver, based on the extreme corner angle it takes in its downtown location.
