Back in the day, when Molly Brown was in residence just a few blocks away, Capitol Hill was a neighborhood of stately mansions with views of the Rocky Mountains. While it’s more crowded now with apartments and office buildings, inns like the Capitol Hill Mansion offer guests an opportunity to experience life in that bygone era, with a few modern touches.
Meet your fellow guests over a gourmet breakfast each morning or during a two-hour beverage meet and greet with the innkeeper and others. The eight-room inn makes a point of welcoming families and gay and lesbian guests, as well as business travelers.
