Have you ever had something looming over your thoughts and you just keep trying to sweep it away, but it keeps coming back? That is what The Spa at The Brown Palace is to me. Recently they had their 120th Birthday Celebration. Along with that came some amazing photos of the hotel on their Facebook page. One I remember distinctly was of the 25th Annual Champagne Cascade benefiting the Red Cross. That is when it really hit me this is a place that appreciates many things including charitable events, hospitality, afternoon tea, champagne and spas! Ever since that day, I have tried to come up with a logical reason that I needed to “Visit Denver”, but alas that has not happened yet. Maybe I can live vicariously though some of the lovely items made at the resort.
The iconic Brown Palace Hotel is a luxury landmark property located in the heart of downtown Denver. Since opening in 1892, the property has maintained its place as Denver’s finest hotel and has hosted distinguished clientele ranging from presidents and dignitaries, to rock stars and celebrities. On the inside, the hotel is renowned for its soaring eight-floor-high atrium lobby for traditional afternoon tea, its Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star rated spa, its rooftop honey bee hives that supply the natural sweetener baked into the house-made delicacies, and its own artesian well that supplies water for the entire hotel.
The hotel is Denver’s most iconic property, consisting not only of a rich history, but also possessing very one-of-a-kind assets within its spa; including a colony of rooftop bees and 750-foot Artesian well – both of which figure prominently into its spa program and individual treatments. The entrance to the Brown’s spa sits in what was formerly the century-old building’s grand fireplace. Befittingly, the entryway is the original one-story tall mantle, and is made of entirely of ornate white onyx. Inside the two-floor, 5,200-square-foot facility, guests at the spa are pampered with indigenous Colorado products. Known for hydro therapy treatments, the natural spring water drawn from the hotel’s own artesian well serves as the main ingredient on the Spa menu; treatments include: The Artesian Plunge, Detoxifying Soak and Relaxing Plunge. Also available exclusively in The Spa at The Brown are products and treatments centered around the property’s now famous rooftop honey – created exclusively from the hotel’s colony of rooftop bees; treatments and products include: Queen Bee Body Scrub, Honey Lavender Bars of Soap and jars of organic and pure honey. The Brown’s Bee products are all also available in the Brown’s spa boutique.

Do I really need any more reasons? I don’t think so! Every day I dream of visiting as I use lip balm made from the bee pollen gathered from their rooftop bee hives. It is just a tease each day!
Well don’t be like me! Get yourself to The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa to help them celebrate their birthday and celebrate something yourself while you are there. Even if it is only celebrating that you got there before Spa Travel Gal.
