Denver union station

At the Heart of Denver’s Urban Renaissance

Our Hotel by Union Station's Light Rail Train

Your connection to Denver’s outlying areas

Since reopening in 2014, Denver’s Union Station has recaptured its former glory that dates back to its opening in 1881. In its early days, the front of the station received rail travelers into the city with a famous lighted Welcome Arch. The arch is now gone, but that authentic sentiment of hospitality still permeates the LoDo neighborhood, Denver’s oldest.

The LoDo district today is a vibrant hotspot for connection and commerce. A booming food scene offers a wealth of inspired culinary spots. Fountains, gardens and street art beautify the streets surrounding the station, while local tech startups, digital agencies and award-winning breweries energize the city’s Denver’s economic rebirth. The historic railroad station building now serves as Colorado’s transportation hub, providing environmentally- friendly rail and bus access to Denver’s outlying areas and to Denver International Airport. All of Denver’s RTD rail lines, including commuter, light rail and Amtrak stop at Union Station, which is also the grounds for the city’s first commuter bike station. What’s all this mean for you? Your stay at the Kimpton Hotel Born includes a first-class ticket to the very best of Denver experiences.
