The New Four Seasons Downtown Denver

I am Dan Polimino with Colorado Dream House and this week’s market update for the week of September 20. All right everybody eat your heart out, this past week I have the pleasure of getting an advance preview of the Four Seasons hotel, and in Four Seasons in downtown Denver, and if you’re familiar with the Four Seasons resorts then you’re accustomed to the elegance, the service, the amenities and the appointments, it’s all fantastic. It’s really living the good life. If you are new to the Four Seasons, well then I think you’ll be blown away. If you have an opportunity to come to Denver check it out.

The building is 45-storeys tall and it’s broken up this way, the first 17 floors are for the hotel and hotel guests. Floors 18 through 45 are all private residences. There’s a 102 units between those floors, they’ve got about half of them sold already which is pretty amazing in this economy. But the great thing is that it’s just an incredible property. The layouts are great, the location is great. It’s right on 14th street directly across from the Denver Performing Arts Center and the Convention Center and when you get up on those upper floors I was on the 30th and the 35th and so forth, the views are just magnificent, and it really doesn’t matter what side of the building you’re on, you’ll either have an incredible full front range view of the Colorado mountains or you’ll have a full view of downtown and some units have a little bit of both. You can’t miss on the views and they have huge balconies.

So a really good outdoor living space, and yes, they’re appointed nicely but let’s face it, you’re not paying top dollar real estate in Colorado for the granite counter-tops at the Four Seasons, you’re paying top dollar real estate at the Four Seasons because of the service, the service and the service.

They’ll do just about anything at the Four Seasons. You want them to walk your dog, they’ll do it three times a day. You need food brought up, they’ll do it. You needed to stock your fridge, they’ll do it. How about making your bed, taking your dry cleaning down, doing your laundry, they’ll do it all. They’ll park your car, you got your own private entrance for the personal residences, you have your own full time (00:02:13) which are available too at all times and of course you have all the SPA and the amenities that go along with the hotel, its really a great property.

So you’re in Denver by all means come and check out, stay at the hotel. If you’re interested in purchasing a residence at the new Four Seasons which opens October 19th, contact me at Have a great week!

Denver may just be one of the most perfect cities to live in. If you look to the west you will see rows of green mountains, and look to the east you will see city surrounded by blue skies. It is a city that holds every season, sometimes in one day.

The mornings start off with crystal blue skies, dew covered grass, and the smell of nature fills the air. By noon the only shade around is under the green trees, as the afternoon passes the scent of rain is misting all around.

The full blown storm can be seen on the horizon of the hilltops, it will be here darkening the sky in a matter of moments. The storms in late summer are full of amazement, how such a calm sunny day can turn into a wild thrusting rain in a matter of minutes.

The beauty and aw of these storms also brings destruction of windows and roofs. There are many roofers Denver Co . but which one will do the best job without costing you a fortune? The aftermath of the storm is so serene, and awesome. People come from all over the neighborhoods to compare stories of destruction and who is the best to call for repairs.

The storm was the most amazing sight you have ever seen, but the mess it left behind, makes you wonder are seeing the seasons in one state really worth it?
