first off, we like to travel to retro motels and historic hotels. We are not high maintenance or fuzzy travelers. We roll with things, travel is about adventure and we don't expect everyplace to be a 3 or 4 star hotel. We've stayed in Glenwood a lot (on way to Palisade for Wine Festival), it's a groovy town. Hotel Denver was not what we expected. It is two building connected (some atrium done in late 70s Mod?) While it had a great old bed, brewery attached and a great view of the train station, Hotel Colorado and river/mountains, the rest of the room was a motel 6. steel doors, the bathroom (again motel 6) and the false overhead ceiling (right out of an office bldg). overly large flat screen tv. the room was big, but not historic as we had hoped. hallways had beautiful furniture. if you ever take the train from Denver (or anywhere else) the hotel is right across the street. the staff was friendly and had toiletries that i had forgotten. so that was great.
going back to the bed. it was actually the best part of the room besides the view. hand crafted quilt. I wouldn't pass on the hotel, but don't expect retro or historic. oh- we where able to take drinks up to the room from the brewery (it's off the main lobby).
Overall, If you are looking for an historic 3 star, this isn't it. But if you are looking for a nice comfortable clean place with nice views of the river, this works really well.
