A Visit To This Unique Colorado Hotel Is Like Spending A Night In Jurassic Park

The Dino Hotel in Lakewood (a.k.a. Best Western Denver Southwest) just underwent a $5 million renovation from top to bottom, transforming it into Colorado’s only dinosaur themed hotel. Located just minutes from downtown Denver and “just a stone’s throw from the geological and paleontological goldmine where the Great Plains meets the Rocky Mountains,” the Dino Hotel will bring out the explorer in all of us. Take a journey through the prehistoric ages with their one-of-a-kind collection of fossils, specimens, dinosaur casts, and original art work at this truly unique, Jurassic Park-esque Colorado hotel.
