Denver's newest and largest hotel is a visual stunner. The 519-room Westin, an example of Starwood Hotels & Resorts' upper-upscale brand, opened last November and is located in a glass-clad structure shaped like the wings of a bird. It offers guests floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views to the west of the Rocky Mountains. It also provides a great jumping-off point to explore the city, and visitors are sometimes treated to screenings of classic 1980s films such as "Top Gun" and "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial" in the outdoor plaza next door. The property is located on the grounds of the Denver Airport, just steps from the Jeppesen Terminal, but don't make any assumptions because of its location. "We're not an airport hotel," said Michele Chalupa, director of sales and marketing at the Westin Denver International Airport (DIA). "We're a four-diamond Westin just steps away from a world-class airport." Get the full story at Travel Weekly
