I’m an airline pilot and stay in hotel rooms over 100 nights a year. I’ve stayed in this hotel frequently for business and with my family on vacations and I can assure you it’s the best all-around hotel in the area. If you decide to stay here, I can guarantee you’ll be glad you did.
First and foremost, the staff is the best I’ve ever dealt with. This includes stays at the best international hotels to budget hotels. You will not find a staff that is more friendly, or willing to go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. I have asked, and seen others ask, big favors and small favors of them and they have gone out of their way to make every effort to meet those requests. This isn’t an observation based on my one stay and their interaction with just me, but based on my numerous stays and their interactions with multiple guests. Sarah, the front desk manager will not just meet, but exceed every reasonable request. The staff’s friendliness alone makes this hotel an outstanding choice!
The location is great. If you need a hotel that’s in the middle of downtown, this isn’t it. If you need a hotel that’s right next to the airport, this isn’t it. If you need a hotel that’s conveniently located close to both, and everything Denver has to offer, that is a great hotel at a great price, THIS IS IT. Traffic and parking isn’t a problem like many of the downtown hotels with a very convenient underground parking garage to stay out of the snow and summer thunderstorms. Being far downtown isn’t a problem like many of the airport hotels. This location is perfectly in the middle, close to I-70, I-270, and E-470. The area around the hotel has all the restaurants and shopping you could need right across the street at Quebec Square, a short walk to 29th St, or a 2 minute drive to the shops at Northfield.
The hotel itself is one of the better Holiday Inns I’ve stayed in. It used to be a Radisson, so it still has Sleep Number beds which are very comfortable. It also has 42” HD TV’s in the rooms which are huge compared to the standard 32” or 37” TV in most hotel rooms. Microwaves and refrigerators are standard in most rooms as well. If it’s a snowy Colorado day and you don’t want to venture out, the hotel restaurant is very good. There’s a buffet for breakfast with some of the best green chili in Colorado, and a full menu available all day, but if you want the hotels best, ask Chef Kyle for my personal favorite, the Asian Chicken with Udon Noodles, a dish among the best I’ve eaten anywhere in the world.
In summary, I don’t usually write reviews about hotels even though I stay in them almost as many nights as I stay at home, but this hotel deserves an outstanding review. If you don’t travel very frequently, you may not notice a difference between hotels as long as everything goes ok during your short trip, but those of us that travel a lot know things don’t always go smoothly when travelling. When things don’t go smoothly, the key to a great trip is often a hotel staff that’s willing to go above and beyond to help. If you decide to stay at this hotel, I can guarantee this hotel staff will!
