Enjoy some of the amenities of staying at the Brown Palace  while lodging at the more affordable Comfort Inn just across the street. The two hotels are connected by a skybridge, which allows easy access to the Brown’s restaurants, shops, and spa. Guests at the Comfort Inn can also order room service from the Brown.
The 231-room Comfort Inn is just one block from the 16th Street Mall and shops and restaurants along this promenade, and is an easy walk from the Colorado Convention Center.
