My Husband and I hosted our wedding weekend at the The Hotel Colorado in October 2019. We had a rehersal dinner followed by an evening meet and greet in the courtyard for all of our out of town guests to mingle. We had an outdoor bar set up as well as a make your own s’mores bar! It went great! Megan and Kristin were very accommodating in our special requests. They set up heat lamps to ensure we were comfortable out side on an October night!Sent on 02/11/2019
The next day we held our ceremony outside in the courtyard with a cocktail hour. It couldn’t have gone better! The staff was so nice and accommodating!
Through the planning process, we saw a lot of upgrades and improvements the hotel has been working on, including menu changes, and new ceremony chairs to name a few. It’s a beautiful hotel and we could see the managent was committed to improving and preserving the beauty of it!

Megan Cooley was the absolute best! My now-husband and I knew without a doubt that she was willing to go to bat for us and make things happen. When planning a wedding and so many different vendors are involved, its such a relief to have such a kind and hard working person by your side- we pulled off the weekend of our dreams and it would not have been possible without Megan and her crew!! We have absolutely zero regrets about using the Hotel Colorado and will forever have a deep rooted love for the community there!Sent on 10/09/2018

No A/C for ONLY our party
The great parts:Sent on 06/15/2019
The staff helping with the event were wonderful and attentive. The food was executed well, only one couple received the wrong item, and the kitchen fixed it by making them a new order. The outdoor space is beautiful, and the Molly Brown bell tower was gorgeous for a wedding night room.
Now for the not so good parts:
One unusual component was checking out the next day to pay the tab, there was no one to go over the bill with, just a front desk clerk for a large bill who was unfamiliar with the event the previous night. Our wedding was the same day as two other events, all other groups had Air Conditioning while our group in a room full of windows did not, which was miserable for elderly family members who had to step outside just to cool off in the sun. Many people spent time on their patio and outdoor bar due to the heat. The wedding cake was sweating due to the temperature. While exploring the basement, we saw a cockroach, which I have a photo of, but won’t post, because gross. While switching rooms from the night before the wedding, the groom was told to take his time on a 11am checkout, and at 11:02 the cleaning staff went in and threw away all of his toiletries, our cake topper, and a sign for the wedding. The groom had to retrieve them from the trash. The kitchen staff kept our vintage silver cake knife and we finally were able to get the hotel to send it to us, while billing our card for the shipping.
Our date was June 1st, so the heat could have been worse if this happens to you without Air Conditioning in a warmer month. I probably would have not posted this review if our on-site coordinator had apologized for the air conditioning for the other two parties, but not ours. Or at least turned on the A/C at some point, we were lied to that it was non-functioning, while cold air was spilling out of the other party rooms. We were the only party affected, and the birthday party for the 15 year old across from our party’s room kindly invited party members in to enjoy some A/C because they were dripping sweat. The room did not cool down until hours after the sun went down.
The outdoor space makes for great photos, but we felt like our group had been singled out for heat stroke. Overall beautiful outdoor space, and the event rooms are much prettier than they were before the renovations. The hotel rooms are very dated, and the hotel Denver would be a better choice for guests due to better mattresses, visible cleanliness, and no 1 inch gap in a front door of a guest room. Our happiest guests slept in other hotels.
