For sky-high business service, check in to the new JW Marriott Denver at Cherry Creek. Each of the 196 oversize guestrooms is equipped with high-speed Internet connections, 32-inch flat-screen TVs, multifunctional phones, and desks with ergonomic chairs. A grand staircase off the lobby leads to finely appointed conference rooms and a ballroom that accommodates up to 300 people. The hotel is ringed by a high-end shopping development, with 250 shops, galleries, and restaurants — so it’s not all work and no play. (800) 228-9290,
