Welcome to Denver

Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver

1420 Stout Street
Denver, CO 80202 USA 

Here's how you can book your room directly with the hotel.

The Embassy Suites Denver-Downtown/Convention Center has a desirable location in the heart of Denver. It offers all the amentities that a high-end conference hotel can provide. The Colorado Convention Center is directly across from the hotel as well as shopping close by at the 16th Street Mall.

This particular location also offers easy access to numerous businesses including ATT, IBM, and Xcel, or catch a ball game; Coors Field, Sports Authority Field, and the Pepsi Center are all near the Embassy Suites. If you appreciate art, the Denver Art Museum offers rare pieces and a massive collection of art. Also close-at-hand is The Denver Zoo and the the Elitch Gardens Amusement Park; both make for a family fun destination.

Welcome to Denver

A thriving cultural scene, diverse neighborhoods, and natural beauty combine for the world's most spectacular playground. A young, active city at the base of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, Denver's stunning architecture, award-winning dining and unparalleled views are all here, year-round.

Denver is near the mountains, not in them. The Mile High City is located on high rolling plains, 12 miles east of the "foothills," a series of gentle mountains that climb to 11,000 feet. Just beyond is the "Front Range of the Rocky Mountains," a series of formidable snowcapped peaks that rise to 14,000 feet. Denver might not be in the mountains, but the mountains still dominate the city. The picturesque mountain panorama from Denver is 140 miles long. There are 200 visible named peaks including 32 that soar to 13,000 feet and above.


Denver has four distinct seasons and receives a modest amount of precipitation spread throughout the year. Due to its inland location on the High Plains, at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, Denver, like all cities along the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains, is subject to sudden changes in weather. Contrary to the popular belief that Denver receives 300 days of sunshine a year, the city can actually expect to receive an average of 115 clear days, 130 partly cloudy days, and 120 cloudy days each year.  

Average temperatures in March are a high of 54 degrees F (12 C), and a low of 26 degrees F (-3 C).
