It's about 20 minutes to downtown. There are not a ton of hotels right downtown. My usual preference is Antler's, which is a great HIlton managed property in easy walking distance to restaurants with very easy access to I-25. There's a ton of lower priced chains all along the I-25 corridor.

Have fun.

^^How fast you driving Tumbleweed? Maybe 20 with a lead foot and light traffic but count on maybe 10-15 more if you hit rush hour times.

I would have guessed 20 minutes as well, but I'm known for having a lead foot. But it does help if you know where you are going. There are a lot of reasonable hotels near I-25 and Circle, very convenient to everything including downtown. Location-wise, Hyatt Place on Garden of the Gods, is about as central as you can get and close to the I-25 corridor.

I would have guessed 20 mins. Mapquest says 18 mins. Downtown you have Mining Exchange and Antler's Hilton. Both are nice and within walking distance of plenty of restaurants.
