Spent 5 nights, during a conference. The entire staff was courteous, friendly and helpful, able to answer any question I'd have brought to a concierge. My good-sized room had two queen beds, a lounge chair and side table, desk, small fridge, and coffee-maker. The 24-hour fitness room has a moderate selection of machines and an inviting outdoor track (at 12 laps per mile, can grow repetitious fairly soon). This downtown hotel has outdoor seating on a balcony by the pool. Oddly, the lounge chairs look appealing, but once you stretch out, you face a brick wall.
The Hyatt, on a very bland strip of Welton, is less than two blocks from the popular 16th Street mall, with constant free shuttle buses, and a 10-15 minute walk from State Capital and Denver Art Museum. In our group's catered events as well as at Pub 17, the food was fairly good, and moderately priced for a hotel restaurant. At least four lobby computers and printer were always available for guests.
Two regrets: the irksome key system [which many of my colleagues groused about] requires rubbing it on elevator panel, room door, fitness entry at a specific angle to get in or move between floors. And the hotel totally lacks personality. Guest rooms, lobby, meeting rooms are all functional, non-descript, inoffensive, and utterly forgettable. At this tier of hotel, it's fun to see a little distinctiveness.
TIP: from airport, take Denver RTD bus, route AF, to Downtown. It goes to Market Street bus depot on 16 Street corridor. Hop on frequent free shuttle bus (low to the ground and luggage-friendly), about 1/2 mile to Welton, then walk 1.5 short blocks to Hyatt. The cost is $11 -- or $5.50 if you're over 65 and say "Senior fare" when you board the bus. The comfortable ride takes under an hour. www.rtd-denver.com/schedules
