If you stay downtown, I would suggest the Antler's Hilton. It's very near the restaurant disctrict with many yummy places to eat within walking distance. Downtown CS is pretty small, but there's some cute local boutiques to check out as well. An advantage to being downtown is how close you are to I-25. Proximity to the interstate is key in getting around in CS.

What types of family activities are you looking for?

I'd second the Antler's Hilton, very nice and if you choose that get a room on the west side as it should have great mtn views. Also as other post mentioned, downtown is somewhat small, but nice. Probably about 3 blocks by 4 blocks is main area. It's nice, clean, and safe. Smaller kids would also probably get a kick out of the Uncle Wilber fountian.

Downtown is actually pretty much in dead center of the city, so it is fairly convienent to everything. Some good places downtown for eating are:

Phantom canyon

Il Vicino

Jose Muldoons
