summer trip lodging

Flying into Denver on Monday, Aug 1st , and flying back to Phila on Friday Aug 5th. Will be going to the Phillies/Rockies game on Wed. Any suggestions on where to stay? Would really like to go to RMNP. Would like to book a vacation rental, but not sure what towns would be the best location. Perhaps split the days in 2 different locations? Any suggestions? Something with a deck and nice views would be a plus. Thanks!

With a short visit I would just find hotel/motel type lodging. Stay near Coors Field on Wed night...look at Oxford Hotel in Lodo area. Walking distance to the game.

First 2 nights stay in Estes Park, lots of cabins, motels, hotels there. Visit Rocky Mountain National Park. Plenty to do in 2 days. Then maybe head to Boulder for afternoon and on to Denver for the game. http://www.estesparkcvb.com/

Day 1 Estes Park

Day 2 Estes park

Day 3 Denver Lodo area lodging for after the game

Day 4 Denver lodging again. Visit Denver area attractions.

Day 5 Depart

With only a 4-day stay, you may want to consider staying in 1 place the whole time in a location that's easily accessible to downtown Denver and the mountains. It might be easier than packing up and moving every 1-2 days.

In this situation, I would suggest the following:

1) Golden - it's right up against the foothills with great scenery, and you might be able to find a place right next to Clear Creek. It's only a 15-20 minute drive from Golden to downtown Denver. I don't know about condos, but can highly recommend the Golden Hotel (which is directly next to the river).

2) Boulder - a great town also against the foothills. Boulder is more upscale compared to Golden, is bigger and has a lot more options for lodging, restaurants and shopping. In town and on the outskirts, there's lots of recreational activities with a great bike/walking/rollerblading path going all through the middle of town and up into the canyon. Chautauqua Park has GREAT hiking trails. Boulder is about 30 minutes from downtown Denver and about 1 to 1.5 hours from Estes Park - a beautiful drive the whole way! There are many lodging options here ranging from budget hotels, to high-end hotels and you can also stay at a cottage/cabin at Chautauqua Park: www.chautauqua.com/important_details.htm

Happy travels!

For the Denver portion check out the Hotel Monaco, a Kimpton property. They just completed a total remodel of the rooms and it is gorgeous. They often have very good rates here on TA.

In Boulder I like the St. Julien http://www.stjulien.com
