The Maven Hotel – 1850 Wazee St, Denver, CO

Feast your eyes on the COOLEST hotel that just opened in downtown Denver – The Maven Hotel. We’ve had our fair share of hotel reviews, and we’re easily putting The Maven in the top 3, along with the Viceroy Zihuatanejo, and The Chanler Newport.

It all begins in the beautifully open and spacious lobby with an adorable airstream adjacent from the check-in desk that serves breakfast and coffee in the morning. Just past the incredibly well decorated lobby you’ll find the Poka Lola Social Club cocktail lounge. We enjoyed some divine drinks from a friendly mixologist.

Strolling to the elevators you’ll find an insanely cool art display. Hundreds of photo frames piled together in what resembles a wavelength. A nice break from the trendy gallery wall. After the elevator doors open on your floor, you’re greeted by totally tempting swings. Yes, we sat in them every chance we got.

We were lucky to get a room with a giant L couch, a dining table, a kitchenette, and possibly the best bathroom ever. I can’t get over the design of this hotel. Every little thing was perfectly thought out. We also will be inquiring about their pillows, because we NEED to buy them. Thank you for the lovely hospitality, Maven!

Best idea we’ve ever had: spending Memorial Day at the Mirbeau Inn & Spa in Plymouth, MA. After an amazing weekend in Newport, RI, we travelled North to our home state of Massachusetts. I’ve heard so much about this gem in the woods called Mirbeau that looks so out of place you’d think you were in the French countryside. Don’t you love that moment when you turn the corner and see something so unusual and breathtaking?! I literally gasped. What a stunning entrance and facade. We immediately toured the property’s beautiful bar and restaurant, the lounge, the spa, and the garden oasis.

We entered our room with classical music lightly bouncing around the space. A lovely fireplace was already roaring, and when I saw the beautiful beds I thought maybe I’ll never leave this room. I think I need to start playing classical music in my room. It may not go with the decor, but it makes you feel some kind of way! I also spotted that clawfoot bathtub from a mile away. Sadly we got a gloomy day, but imagine sitting out in those chairs by the pond after a divine brunch outdoors at The Bistro. 

We also have to mention how much we enjoyed their bath products, available for purchase in the spa. Everything they make is 100% natural, which is so rare. Not to mention they smell incredible. Hello, sandalwood, lime, ginger, and green tea.

We hear there’s also a Mirbeau Inn upstate New York… road trip?!

If you’re craving a day of delicious farm-to-fork food and pure relaxation, head over to the Omni Nashville restaurant, Kitchen Notes,  and Mokara Spa. The restaurant boasts a unique assortment of biscuits, and divine lunch menu. Even their club sandwich was photogenic, which is not easy to do. We’ll definitely be coming back here to test out their brunch.

After you’re fully satiated, head upstairs to the beautiful Mokara Spa. Lounge in plush white robes and sip champagne while you wait for an INCREDIBLE massage. Guys, there massage beds are heated… game changer. We’ve reviewed many spas, but have to crown this one the winner.
