Travel writer, Sarah Kuta shares: "Since 1908, the Hotel Melrose has stood guard over downtown Grand Junction. Over the years, it’s garnered quite a bit of notoriety for being haunted (primarily because a previous owner was convicted of murdering his wife). Now, the stately brick building is shedding its spooky reputation and reopening as a tranquil boutique hotel.
The building’s new owners gutted the interior and worked with interior designers to create 16 warm, retreat-like guest rooms with luxurious Western flair. Before you turn in for the night, you can enjoy a cocktail at the on-site, speakeasy-style bar called the Melrose Spirit Co. or gaze up at the stars from the outdoor terrace."
