Luis was our waiter on Saturday morning, April 18, 2015. He was very accommodating since we had two small children. He was efficient and friendly. We enjoyed our experience at this hotel and at the hotel restaurant.

I flew to Denver on Saturday, September 13 and stayed at this hotel for one night before heading out to South Dakota. At first glance this hotel looked old and its furniture needed to be replaced but the room looked okay. I woke up the next morning and found a bed bug on my pillow, the same pillow which I... More

I like this Red Lion and stay there when I am in Denver. I noticed I may have left some jewelry from my prior visits and asked the clerk if she would check lost and found. She told me that the day shift had access to lost and found and I should inquire when I checkout. Sooo, I asked the... More

I flew to Colorado for a Medical school interview. This hotel provided shuttle service to and from the hotel and also to and from Rocky Vista University, the medical school that I interviewed at. I did not have to rent a car because of these shuttles which saved me a lot of money. The room was clean and the beds... More

The hotel staff is efficient, kind, and very helpful. They will go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need for your stay. Their shuttle services are very convenient and a life saver if you are not familiar with the area. Although their facility is not the most luxurious it's also not priced as if it... More

The entire hotel was in disrepair. Holes in awning, peeling wallpaper, lobby furniture was threadbare with holes, no mini fridge or microwave, ice machine was out of order on 11 out of 12 floors, plywood surrounding elevators, the shower in my room was broken, and everything was dirty.

Easy access to I-225. Large room, but was at the 'back of the bus' with no view. Bar/lounge was great and the dining area was full of good options and lots of space. I would stay again, but insist on a room with a view

The Red Lion in Aurora was a pretty decent hotel to stay in. The staff were great, very accommodating! There were lots of renovations happening, so the elevator buttons hovered in plywood, instead of having a nicer covering over them. Not too bad. The room was very nice, with a great view of the reservoir and city. Beds were comfy,... More

Don't know why all the negative reviews; perhaps many were before the recent remodel that I've heard about. We booked a king room because a friend's birthday party was in the neighborhood, and didn't want to drive north afterwards. It's true that the Red Lion shares the building with the Radisson. Registration areas are separated by a small hallway, so... More
