About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This condo is privately managed by the owners, Lynne Charles and Steve Metcalf.

BEAUTIFUL, TRANQUIL, A REAL RETREAT. This condo is on the 18th floor and has floor to ceiling windows/doors with dramatic city/ Rocky Mountain views. The design style is 'Dwell Modern,' with fun paint colors and whimsical modern touches, such as the bedroom wallpaper Leaf motif, the 'bubble' pattern plates and original photographic artwork. A special touch is the authentic Shoji sliding doors, which separate the bedroom from the living room when you want privacy.

Enjoy 800 square feet of space--twice more space than you would at a hotel, with more amenities and a very competitive price.

And the views...You can see the Denver Center for the Performing Arts on the next block, with views Long's Peak in the distance-- all from your own private balcony!

IDEAL LOCATION: Walk out of this retreat, take the elevator down, step through the lobby and you are THERE, we mean truely DOWNTOWN! The Performing Arts Center is just a half block away. The Convention Center is just two blocks away as is historic Larimer Square, with all of its restaurants, cafes, bars, happenings-- and the ever popular 'MARKET'- a deli/coffee shop that is a Denver institution. On the corner is Sam's Diner, open early and late which offers up a true slice of city life and great people watching.

Everything else is an easy walk, including the Pepsi Center, Platte Valley, Union Station, the Denver Art Museum, the Clifford Stills Museum, Coors Field baseball stadium. Confluence Park (REI, river walk and kayaking), as well as the beloved Tattered Cover bookstore and many other sporting and cultural attractions.

This is a completely renovated 800 square foot condo with an open floor plan that can be closed off by floor-to-ceiling Shoji screens for privacy.

About Lynne Charles

We have lived in the Denver area for many years and share a love of architecture, travel and art. Our past includes Steve’s work at the Denver Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, many years in the non-profit world for both of us, and a 1 ½ year stint in Mexico promoting tourism to Colorado. Our passion for travel is the primary reason we decided to enter the vacation rental business.

This condo represents a labor of love for us. For many years, we have bought and renovated historic homes in Denver, from an 1890’s Victorian cottage we bought in 1991, to our current Arts & Crafts home about five miles east of Downtown. Victorians are fun, but you can only lose so many brain cells stripping paint. Our desire to have a place Downtown Denver led to our decision to buy this condo. Much of the inspiration for the design came from Dwell magazine, with its focus on modern and green design—the bold colors, the simplicity, the geometric shapes. The leaf motif reflects both our love of gardening and this amazing natural world.

We often try to meet our guests, and will be happy to give you a tour of the property upon arrival and make additional suggestions on great ways to spend your time in Denver. Please feel free to call us at one of our numbers if there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable.

Lynne Charles purchased this condo in 2007

Why Lynne Charles chose Central Business District

We bought our condo because of its ideal location in Denver's Theatre District, and close proximity to all of the Downtown attractions. We love the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, and often attend plays and the symphony. (Denver has the second largest performing arts center in the country!) In this location, you can take the elevator down to the lobby and be in our thriving downtown area upon walking out of the lobby doors. We also chose our condo because it is high enough up to provide an outstanding view of the Rocky Mountains, which can be enjoyed from the private balcony. We love sitting there and enjoying a glass of wine or coffee.

What makes this condo unique

- Walking distance to all of the major downtown attractions

- An open balcony enables guests to enjoy the fresh air and great views from the 18th floor

- Gorgeous, high-end decor with more amenities and space than a hotel room

- Privacy and tranquility

- A full kitchen with microwave, full-size stove and refrigerator, toaster, blender and all dishware

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Lynne and Steve,

We could not have planned our trip any better. A week was not enough to see everything, but we did all we could. The weather was beautiful all week which added to the already great time we were having. The baseball at Coors Field was fun, the concert at Red Rocks was amazing, Pearl Street Mall in Boulder was a day well spent, as was the zoo and Botanic Gardens. The restaurants, brew pubs and shopping here is second to none. We'll be back someday.. I hope this condo is still for rent as it was the perfect place to stay!! Thanks! PS The bed feels like we were sleeping on a cloud! Love it!

Comfortable apartment right down town with bars and restaurants on your doorstep. Well equipped with a good size closet and small office area in the hall, definitely recommended! Pool is lovely if you're staying in summer too

I enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Leaf Suite while in Denver for a conference. The location was incredible, just right around the corner from the convention center, and just off the 16th St. Mall. The condo is nicely appointed and very well-maintained. The owners met me at check-in and were quite helpful with advice on where to shop and eat within walking distance (I did not have a car). Easy bus ride from the airport to 16th St. A great experience.

Everything we hoped for....and more!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we set foot in the door to the Leaf Suite we felt right at home! Not only was the condo immaculate but the pictures were so accurate that we felt that we were in familiar surroundings. It was great to be able to get out and walk to numerous eateries and have access to the Denver Performing Arts Center. We will be returning to Denver in December and are so pleased that this condo was available. A real find...

This place was like home for me. I was attending a convention nearby at the Sheraton and was so happy I didn't stay in a hotel. This was centrally located and had the most comfy bed ever!!!! I travel for a living and the leaf suite made me feel so comfortable that I could have stayed for weeks! The view is stellar and the kitchen is perfectly appointed. I will be back!

Wonderful condo in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo -- it had a fantastic view of the mountains, it was beautifully decorated (LOVE the slate countertops in the kitchen) and very comfortable. Plus, the location was perfect -- just one block from the 16th Street mall, we were able to walk to Coors Field and to many wonderful restaurants. Parking was easy -- just a block away. We would definitely stay here again, and we highly recommend this place!

  • 5 of 5

We travel to Denver about 4 times a year and usually stay at the Hyatt, but after a couple nights, it was just too inconvenient and small so we tried the Leaf Suite as an alternative. We have stayed at the Leaf Suite for two 5 day visits. In both cases the accomodations were excellent. The condo is clean, quiet, and very comfortable. Love the bed! The view overlooking the mountains is breath taking. Steve has been most helpful in making sure we had everything we needed. The location is perfect and in walking distance to everything from Larimer Square, to 16th Street Mall, Performing Arts Center, etc. I can't say enough about this place, I travel constantly and as such can be a pretty tough critic. I must say it is a total pleasure to stay here. You won't be disappointed.
