15 Best Airbnbs in Denver

We’ve curated this list to include stays for solo travelers, couples and families or larger groups. It includes budget-friendly stays all the way up to the most luxurious properties. All of which are as clean, unique and beautiful as the city itself.

Highland Park & Lower Highland (LoHi): The Highland Park neighborhood consists of the area across Hwy 25, just northwest of downtown Denver. The area tends to be a bit pricier and therefore caters to a slightly more mature crowd (think late 20-somethings and 30-somethings) than other areas like LoDo and Cap Hill, which play host to more recent college grads. 

With the higher price point also comes cleanliness and safety. You won’t see much of the homeless population as soon as you cross over the highway into this area.

Honorable Mention:


Lower Downtown (LoDo): The area surrounding Union Station is known as LoDo and is full of high-rise apartment complexes and luxury hotels. There are lots of fine dining and cultural attractions in this area, however the closer you get to the ballpark, the younger the nightlife crowd tends to get. 

This area is also somewhat notoriously scattered with homeless people, especially in the area near the Denver Rescue Mission (which borders Five Points).
