Whether you’re looking for a staycation spot optimized for remote working or the perfect hotel for your next Denver visit, Best Western’s Vīb Hotel in RiNo combines convenience with style to provide an incredible stay for either purpose. Located in the heart of Denver’s RiNo Art District, Vīb is minutes away from a number of local breweries, restaurants, galleries, and more. The hotel is situated between Denver International Airport and Union Station and is walking distance from an RTD stop for easy transportation around the city.

If you don’t want to leave the building for a drink or meal, check out McDevitt Taco Supply or Heady Coffee Co.

McDevitt Taco Supply is located on the top floor of the hotel and serves an excellent selection of snacks, tacos, and drinks. My personal favorites were the chips and queso and the spicy margarita, which are both conveniently inexpensive if you catch the happy hour! Don’t miss the breathtaking patio views of Denver’s skyline and the Rocky Mountains.

For your breakfast fix, head to the lobby for Heady Coffee Co and enjoy the tasty menu along with abundant seating and work spaces. I ordered a dirty chai latte and the breakfast burrito with a housemade salsa, and both were incredible!

Now, let’s breakdown the remote-workability of Vīb Hotel.

The “Large King Bedroom” I stayed in was undoubtedly optimized for remote working. The dedicated desk space was large enough for both of my laptops, and was equipped with multiple outlets for easy charging. I also enjoyed working from the comfortable couch and coffee table space in the room when I wanted to relax a bit. I had no problems with the complimentary hotel WiFi and was able to take multiple meetings without interruption.

For a change of scenery, I loved working from Heady Coffee Co! The service was friendly, the food and drinks were amazing, and the hotel WiFi appeared just as strong in the lobby as it was in the rooms. Whether you choose to stay in the Heady Coffee Co seating area or venture into another corner of the lobby, there are tons of seating areas that I never saw crowded. Outlets are conveniently located around the high top seating areas, so you can keep your electonics charged while you work.

My working-staycation at Vīb Hotel was productive, comfortable, and enjoyable, and I would recommend it to anyone coming into town or simply looking for a brief escape from home!
