We saw that it was a Double Tree which is also part of Hilton family of hotels, however, we were very surprised to see the deco & themes when we arrived. Nothing like any Double Tree or Hilton hotel we've ever seen. Very retro deco with a different wild theme on every floor. We stayed on the "Big Hair" floor which had pics of people with enormous, outrageous hair dews. Colors are really bright and something out of Austin Powers. We were more surprised than disappointed, but you need to make sure you're in to that sort of thing before you book.
Service was a hit and miss. Check-in desk was very friendly but bell hops were basically nonexistent and not in a hurry to help you.
The office at the corner is their bar/restaurant and has great food and service. They do not, however, provide complimentary breakfast.
They have a large multi-level garage but was very disappointed to learn its $25 a day for parking. We thought that was outrageous since the room was pretty high in price. So take the price of room and add $25 for parking, price of breakfast, premium wifi charge (if you're needing that), and $50 for pets (if you're also needing that) and this is an expensive hotel.
Beds were okay. Not uncomfortable but not great. Rooms don't have a microwave but they do have a fridge. The complimentary wifi was super slow. The 3 bars 4G cell service was much faster. I'm guessing they do that so you will buy their premium wifi service.
Location is ok if you want to be close to Performing Arts Building and western end of 16th Street Mall. Otherwise it's kinda far from Rockies Stadium and many of the Microbreweries, if that's your thing.
We loved that they are pet friendly but at a $25/day fee but not to exceed $50. Problem is, the nearest grassy area is far away. Denver is full of concrete and grassy areas are very limited. We made it work but had a few accidents on the sidewalks while on the long walk to the grass. The poor dogs just got confused since they were outside but we weren't taking them to grass and they just urinated on sidewalk. The Denver liberals got very upset at us when they saw the dogs urinating as if we made some kind of epic global warming disaster right in front of them. We didn't know what to do about it. Birds do worse all over the place.
We booked the room because we thought we were familiar with the Hilton brand and needed a pet friendly hotel. This one is a wild trip and ended up being expensive with all of the add-ons. We didn't hate it, but want to give a detailed critique so you can make sure this is the type of hotel for you, instead of being surprised like us.
