Light up the Season with Downtown Denver's Grand Illumination

Posted by: Crowne Plaza Denver
27 Aug

Light up your holiday season this year when you stay in Downtown Denver!  Kicking off on the evening of November 24th (the Friday after Thanksgiving), Downtown Denver's Grand Illumination festival is an annual holiday light display across the city. With the flick of a switch, thousands of lights will shine brightly all over Downtown Denver. Just stroll right out of our hotel lobby and into this magnificent light display. After you wander through the city, come back to our beautifully-appointed accommodations at Crowne Plaza with views of the Rocky Mountains and Denver skyline. 

Do you want to experience this fun holiday tradition? Reserve a room or suite at our urban refuge in the heart of the city to be steps from the brightest lights of the season. The best places to see the Grand Illumination include city and county buildings as well as popular pedestrian areas. Head to the 16th Street and 14th Street Malls where the trees are covered in bright lights. For one of the most impressive displays, check out Denver Union Station, about a mile from our Downtown hotel. Marvel at the majestic holiday tree and enjoy live entertainment with the sounds of the season while you snack on holiday treats.

Downtown Denver's Grand Illumination festival runs through the end of the year, but the holidays will be here before you know it. Start planning your holiday adventure in Denver for 2017. Learn more about all of our hotel perks like complimentary Wi-Fi, farm-to-table dining, and a fitness center.
