During the winter and holiday months, it is hard to get the entire family outside. Several years ago, we decided to start doing staycations not only to help our mental welfare, but to help support the local economy. See hotel tour video

The Monarch Casino Resort Spa: Casino Resort in Black Hawk (The Monarch) is one of those places we love to visit during the winter months. Because we never need to step outside. Except to take in the hotel’s fantastic view from a scenic rooftop pool and spa area.

The Monarch is only 45-minutes from downtown Denver. It has several restaurants and bars, which include a typical casino buffet. See hotel tour video.

Once you pull up to the entry and lobby area. You know that you are going to enjoy yourselves. The décor is fancy, and energy is high.

When we were there last, we spent a lot of time in the pool area having cocktails. It was so relaxing to sit on a comfy couch with a glass of wine and a good book. Once it stopped snowing, we sat outside on the deck, with more cocktails, and enjoyed the fire pits and view. See hotel tour video.

We ate mostly in the restaurant next to the casino. The food was outstanding. So much so, we ate every meal there.

If you are looking to get away and relax. We recommend The Monarch. It is more of an adult getaway and is perfect for romance.
