“This spa is in the elegant Brown Palace Hotel, which was built in 1892. It's historically significant and simply gorgeous! People typically raise their eyebrow most favorably when you mention staying, dining and/or having high tea at The Brown Palace. It's is of course the same if you've indulged at their spa. It's downtown, which is about a 10 minute drive. I have a friend that indulges there on occasion. She loves it!”
