Most moms tend to put everyone else's need first—which means you'll rarely find us hinting for gifts, even on Mother's Day. Usually, we just want to spend the day not working and cleaning! This year, plan ahead to treat mom to some well-deserved attention and relaxation. We've found a few mini-getaways she'll love.
For an urban experience, consider The Oxford Mom Mini Retreat. She'll be greeted with flowers in her snazzy room at LoDo's historic Oxford Hotel, relax with a massage or facial at the hotel spa, and enjoy a rose-petal salt bath with turndown service. This package is perfect for the mom who likes the vibrant hustle of city life—it's just steps away from 16th Street Mall. $260, theoxfordhotel.com
Make reservations now for Mother's Day brunch at the Warwick Hotel. Served in the hotel's elegant Capitol Ballroom, the whole family can admire views of the Rockies and downtown Denver while the chefs from Randolph's take care of the cooking. $42 adults, $34 seniors, $22 children. warwickdenver.com
Two special moms will receive the royal treatment this weekend at the Inverness Hotel in Englewood. The Everything Mom package is available only on May 11 or May 12, and includes overnight accommodations for two in the luxurious Centennial Suite, a three-course dinner with champagne at Baca, and brunch at The Garden Terrace. Mom and a friend (or spouse) will also enjoy a half day at the spa, a private fitting for a custom set of Titleist golf irons, 18 holes of golf (with caddy), and a basket of goodies from the spa worth $250. She'll remember the weekend fondly every time she tees off with those new clubs. $3,500 (taxes, fees, and gratuities included), invernesshotel.com
