The venerable Brown Palace Hotel was designed by Frank Edbrooke in an Italian Renaissance style and completed in 1892. It features carved sandstone on a base of granite and was the country’s second fireproof building. Inside, a dramatic eight-story atrium is capped by a stained-glass skylight. Over a century later, the Brown Palace remains one of Denver’s finest hotels.
