I'm torn between 2 & 3 stars, as the owners have really tried to update the interior on a priority basis, however the old "Corian-like" sink had a deep-jagged crack within the bowl that had been there for a long time, as it was darkly discolored and I would hesitate to fill the bowl with water and wash my face...

We chose to stay at this hotel for its location to mile high stadium, which cannot be beat. The room it self was clean and slightly updated, though the bathrooms need some work. The thing I'm surprised isn't mentioned more is the train that goes by numerous times a night and they seem to have a requirement to blow the... More

I was on a 3-day academic conference in Denver this week (just got back). I chose to stay at the Hotel VQ because it offered me a 3-day stay at reasonable price. I must say it was worthwhile. Everyone at VQ- front desk operators, VQ shuttle drivers, house-keeping staff, and the staff managing restaurant upstairs- were very polite and helpful.... More

We were told that there would be no problem with my husbands wheelchair, which is a standard manual chair. His chair could barely fit through the room door and definitely couldn't fit in the bathroom. The location was perfect and views from the room and skybar were awesome. The staff was polite and helpful. The hotel overall was comfortable, and... More

Driving through Colorado and spent 2 days in Denver. All downtown locations were 2-3x the price. This place is only a few miles out of downtown and offers a free shuttle that will take you just about anywhere you want to go at anytime. All rooms face outward with a great view. It's actually in the same lot as the... More

and will probably be totally gutted and turned into condos. Close to town with a free shuttle available, parking in their lot was also free...a good alternative to the high-priced hotels in the Central Business District where parking is $25-35/day even when you are staying at their hotel. Though VQ needs a bit of updating, it was certainly comfortable enough... More

Preface this by saying I booked the room through hotwire. We arrived late after driving 4 hours with an infant. We're not picky people-as long as the room is clean and functional we're good. The hotel itself was easy to get to and easy parking. The front desk staff was nice and friendly upon check in. Now, the bad. The... More

My boyfriend and are VERY easily pleased. We booked this hotel from Hotet-dot-com hoping to have a nice place to stay close to Denver. We had been LIVING IN OUR CAR for 4 weeks traveling across country. We hadn't taken showers in 2 weeks, and had worn a variety of outfits full of a whole 5 pieces for the trip... More

Although the hotel conveniently located and and fairly price the hotel staff exhibits either complete incompetence or willingness to take advantage of the clients. After advising me that it is impossible in Denver to get a cab to the airport with 1 hour advance notice, the hotel clerk suggested a limo service saying that it charges a flat rate equal... More

Nice clean room and please and staff, good location. I was a little annoyed that there was a $100 deposit on the room even though I alreadybpaid in full- don't remember reading this. Very few channels on TV, curtains don't shut all the way, and the ac fan is so loud it sounds like someone is knocking on the door... More
