For those searching for Rocky Mountain Romance, The Benson Hotel and Faculty Club, Aurora’s new luxury boutique hotel, welcomes couples with a Once Upon a Time Out West experience.

A balcony with a mountain view at The Benson Hotel and Faculty Club.

The new package is designed for a romantic getaway on Valentine’s Day — or any day of the year. Located on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus., the hotel lies at the heart of Aurora, the Gateway to the Rockies, midway between downtown Denver and Denver International Airport. It features The Common Good, a 100-seat restaurant that serves locally sourced and freshly prepared cuisine created by Executive Chef Donovan Davis.

The Once Upon a Time Out West package starts with an instant upgrade to a top-floor Mountain View Executive Fireplace Suite where the views of the snow-capped Front Range seem to go on forever. These elegant and welcoming accommodations offer 700 square feet of space and provide the property’s best mountain views.
