It’s fun sometimes when traveling to stay in a place that’s a little different than your standard run-of-the-mill hotel, motel or condo, especially in a place as full of character as Glenwood Springs. Hotel Denver is a historic property (built in 1914) that’s been renovated and updated more than enough to meet today’s standards of comfort and quality.
WHAT WAS GOOD: There was lots of space in our two-room suite. With two queen-sized beds, two full baths, a sleeper sofa and plenty of floor space, we never felt cramped….Room amenities nicely blend the modern with the historic. It’s nice to enjoy antique furnishings while still having such comforts as a refrigerator, in-room coffee, internet service, etc….Towels, linens, toiletries and furnishings are all quality stuff….Decorative touches like exposed brick, nicely finished wood floors, etc. make the rooms here stand out from your standard hotel accommodations….The location in town in excellent. You can easily walk to everything….It seems as though other reviewers have experienced a mixed bag in terms of noise. We never heard a sound….The brew pub, accessible directly from the lobby, is great!
WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER: We thought the staff could have been a bit more welcoming. Nothing bad, just not overwhelmingly friendly….Services are a little lean here (no concierge, business center, pool, etc.) but you probably wouldn’t expect to find those things in a property like this anyway.
THINGS TO KNOW: The hotel is located just steps from the train station. Getting here by rail would be very easy….Parking is located on a side street around the corner from the main entrance. You have to unload your stuff out front then park your car. There’s no bell staff….The hot springs are a short walk via the footbridge. The staff will provide towels (you check them out and back in). They’re better quality than those offered at the pool (and free of charge)….Glenwood Springs has lots of good restaurants but the Glenwood Canyon Brewing Company at the hotel shouldn’t be overlooked. Food, service and atmosphere are all excellent.
BOTTOM LINE: Glenwood Springs is a great place to spend a day or two and Hotel Denver is a smart choice if you’re looking to be in the center of town and to avoid the cookie cutter chains.
