We may have just celebrated the arrival of a new decade, but for those of us who remember a simpler time of VHS tapes and Game Boys, another year around the sun can bring back feelings of nostalgia. If it hit you hard this new year, here are a few hotels that will bring you back to your Kris Kross jumping, VIBE magazine reading, Lauryn Hill miseducating good old days.

The Curtis Denver — Denver, Colorado

Nothing says throwback like a plate of chocolate chip cookies and a glass of cold milk. Guests are greeted at The Curtis Denver with this timeless indulgence at check-in, but if that doesn’t take you back to your childhood, then the retro video games and Barbie and Marge Simpson-themed rooms surely will. The hotel’s Five & Dime store brims with treats from the past and each guest floor is designed to reflect a pop theme from TV to music to art or sports and beyond.
