The hotel is on the edge of one of the sketchier parts of town but I give the desk clerk credit for telling me the truth (after I had checked in, of course!) You're just a block away from the free light rail line down 7th Ave SW, so it's not all bad. There's a free continental breakfast for those who absolutely need their morning coffee and roll fix. The coffee maker in your room is good enough for most people I'm sure. BTW, there is no restaurant, just an eating area off the main lobby - unless vending machine "food" quaifies as food in your house. Don't count on any scenic views of the Rockies. You get a real good look at urban blight though. At $219 a night, it's pricey...but so is everything in this town.
