I recently found myself without a hotel room in downtown Denver and was having a drink at the Hyatt Regency. They were sold out, but highly recommended the Homewood Suites next door. I was skeptical.
I have stayed at Homewood Suites around the country before. The best description of other properties would be "adequate." Not this Homewood Suites. It's brand new (as in, just opened 1 1/2 months before my stay) and modern. Before it was a hotel, it was an old office building. Nice conversion!
The location couldn't be better- it's one block away from 16th Street Mall- packed with tourist goodies, bars, restaurants and shopping. Although I didn't visit, it's apparently close to the Denver Convention Center.
I walked next door from the Hyatt & Deb was manning the front desk for both the Hampton Inn & Homewood Suites. She checked me in quickly and efficiently and offered me a water. I checked in late and she could tell I was travel weary and exhausted. Deb upgraded me to a suite without asking and took incredible care of me!
The room: wow. Huge. Modern. Clean. Comfortable king sized bed that rivaled the Westin's Heavenly (I wish I could have taken the pillows home). Large HD LCD tv that would swivel to wherever I was so I could watch from couch or bed. Small kitchenette area with sink, microwave, fridge and granite countertops. Living room/sitting area with giant couch that had a pull out bed (I checked, but didn't need). Desk with ergonomic chair that separated the room that had me secretly wishing I had work to do. View of downtown Denver that had me in awe.
I didn't take advantage of the free breakfast but it was offered. I used valet (friendly and fast but $16 for 4 hours) and their coffee bar a few times. Whenever I needed directions, suggestions on a restaurant or a bar, or service of any kind- there was a friendly, eager to help hotel rep.
I wouldn't think twice about booking another stay at this hotel and would absolutely recommend it to others. I have stayed at the Hyatt next door before and I would even recommend it over the Hyatt.
