City-by-City Guide: Best Colorado Hotels for Weddings

From premier event planning to luxe bridal suites, here are some of the best hotels for your Colorado wedding.

Star Service

Whether you want an intimate affair or a grand event, the wedding concierge at the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch in Avon will take care of every detail. In fact, no task is too small for them—they’ll gladly set up your guest favors, deliver welcome bags, and organize place cards for the big day. (970) 748-6200

Picturesque Setting

Do you dream of swapping vows on a mountaintop? Then look no further than the Copper Mountain Resort . Hold your ceremony on breathtaking “Solitude Station,” then head into the site’s Grand Hall, which has floor-to-ceiling windows that offer Rocky Mountain views. (970) 726-1682

Fine Dining

The award-winning chef, David Von Holton, at the Artisan Restaurant & Bar at The Stone Bridge Inn in Snowmass Village will specially prepare a tantalizing feast for your rehearsal dinner. You can assist in planning a menu of seasonal entrees or throw caution to the wind and let the chef choose a customized meal just for you and your guests. (970) 923-2420

Elegant Ballroom

Event planner Claire Graham of Sassy Events recommends the Grand Ballroom at the Sonnenalp Resort of Vail . “It leads out on to a lawn by the creek, so it’s a great location for a ceremony and reception at the same site,” she says. “It also allows wedding guests to have access to an outside area all evening.” Perfect for that much-needed breath of fresh air after a night of dancing. (866) 284-4411

Romantic Suite

Once you make your way to the bridal suite at The Inn at Cherry Creek in Denver, you’ll never want to leave. The magnificent two-room suite boasts two full-sized bathrooms, fireplace, master bedroom, and a 1,200-square-foot terrace where you can revel in your newlywed status. (303) 377-8577

Best Perk

The St. Julien Hotel

in Boulder not only has a luxury spa, but the bride and groom receive a $75 gift certificate to use toward the treatment of their choice during their wedding weekend. Even better: You’ll get a free one-night stay on your first anniversary. (720) 406-9696

Historic Venue

For a timeless setting for your wedding, consider The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, one of Colorado’s most-recognized historic hotels. Originally built in 1909, this historic hotel boasts five event rooms, majestic mountain views, and is just a few miles from Rocky Mountain National Park. (970) 586-3371

Group Accommodations

No matter what time of year you wed, there’s plenty for your out-of-towners to do at the Keystone Resort . Guests can ski in winter, golf and horseback ride in the summer, and enjoy the resort’s spa anytime. There are also plenty of accommodations from which to choose, from standard but spacious guest rooms to luxury condos. (970) 496-4500
