Jennifer Broome takes us to this haunted hotel.

Downtown Denver has a history of hauntings and The Oxford Hotel is no exception.  It is Denver’s most historic hotel.  The Oxford Hotel was voted the #1 hotel in the West by Condé Nast Traveler’s 2012 Readers’ Choice.  In this historic boutique hotel, there is one room in particular that could give you a spooky stay, especially if you are a man sleeping alone in the room.


There have been numerous reports of a postman in an old-fashioned uniform sitting at the bar in the Cruise Room.  Other reports include an old cowboy dressed in his western garb, toilets flushing with no one there, and sinks and lights turning on and off with no one around.
