Downtown Denver Hotel’s Retail Therapy Package Strikes Chord with Shopaholics

It’s no snow job! The Denver Marriott City Center has extended one of its most popular week-end packages just in time for the holidays.

The downtown Denver hotel’s Experience Shopping Package continues a partnership with Cherry Creek Shopping Center that affords shopaholics deluxe AAA 4-Diamond accommodations plus a VIP discount passport that can be used at more than 160 stores at the upscale shopping plaza. The deal includes complimentary breakfast for two and valet parking for one car all at special rates from $144 to $244 per night.

Shoppers of all ages will find plenty of gifts suitable for Christmas and Hanukkah giving – and receiving – at Cherry Creek Shopping Center with 40 exclusive stores including Tiffany and Co., Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren, Juicy Couture and Coach. The shopping center, situated about 3.5 miles southeast of downtown, features Neiman Marcus, Macy’s and Nordstrom as anchor stores along with retailers such as Build-A-Bear Workshop, Montblanc, Kiehl’s and Hyde Park for more unique gifts. The full-service mall treats visitors to Doc Popcorn, Cinnabon and Wetzel’s Pretzels for quick snacks but also has plenty of sit-down restaurants such as Elway’s, Kona Grill, Brio Tuscan Grille and California Pizza Kitchen for an enjoyable lunch or dinner.

After hitting the retail therapy hard, guests of the hotel in Denver, Co., can make use of some much-needed relaxation therapy by unwinding at the upscale D-Spot Lounge, where 20 martinis are the specialties of the house. A trip to the hotel’s relaxing indoor pool with hot tub and steam room also may be in order before a good night’s sleep.

The pinnacle of tranquility comes as guests settle into one of 599 luxurious rooms with spectacular views of downtown and the Rocky Mountains. Custom duvets, down comforters and cotton-rich sheets on extra soft king and double beds will envelop the tired and weary as they rest their heavy heads on plenty of fluffy down and feather pillows. Large LCD TVs, in-room coffee makers, separate sleeping and sitting areas and large writing desks with ergonomic chairs provide the comforts of home, while Bath and Body Works products in the bathroom and soundproof windows pamper the pooped-out patron.

Guests who sleep in and take advantage of the hotel’s noon check-out time can still enjoy their complimentary breakfasts for two, as Allie’s American Grill serves its freshly prepared dishes and a casual buffet into the early afternoon on most days.

The Denver hotel deal, available Thursday through Sunday, must include a Friday or Saturday night stay. Visitors can book reservations by March 31, 2013 and must use promotional code SHO to cash in on all of the perks offered with the Retail Therapy Package.
