We (2 adults) are arriving in Denver 9/3 and will have a couple of days free to be tourists before attending to some business there. I know there's a big event downtown that weekend. Also can't decide from all the postings here if LoDo area is OK, or not. There are also some mixed B&B reviews - is the area safe and nice at night? Or is someplace like Lakewood close enough to use as a 'home base'?
Want to see the Robert Wick sculptures at the Botanical gardens, and other than that have no pre-set agenda. Will have time at end of our trip to get out of town too.
Any help with hotels in the area would be appreciated.
