In addition to this, we have over 100,000 LED lights, 4,800 holiday ornaments, a grand array of Poinsettias, and hand-crafted ginger bread houses on display throughout the hotel. To top off the holiday ambience, from 12-8pm daily, you can enjoy a live pianist playing all of your favorite holiday tunes.

Denver Holiday Traditions: Afternoon Tea at The Brown Palace

Afternoon Holiday Tea at The Brown Palace is a fabulous Denver tradition. Due to its popularity, however, securing a last minute reservation may be a bit of challenge. Erin Johnston, Spa and Retail Director at The Brown Palace, shares a fun tea alternative that is both relaxing and festive.

Santa Claus is Coming to Denver

…And you’ll find Jolly Old Saint Nick right in the heart of the city at the Brown Palace.  The big man in red and Mrs. Claus will be hosting the little ones in Ellyngton’s for a special breakfast buffet, featuring kid-friendly selections that will include teddy bear waffles, chocolate chip pancakes, made to order omelets and plenty of other festive fare.  Oh, and don’t forget about the cookie decorating, because you know Santa is going to be hungry!

And since tis’ the season to celebrate, there will be live music from the North Pole with Danny Showers to keep us all tapping our toes and ho ho humming along.

On Saturday November 26th, Santa will be with us from 9:00-12:30 before wrangling Rudolph and heading back to his workshop…but if you can’t make it this month, fret not!  He’ll be returning a few times more before he has to head down the chimney, including Saturday December 3, 10, 17, and 24th.

Reservations are required.  Please call 303-297-3111
