We spent Christmas 2013 and the New Year at the Towneplace Suites Denver Downtown. We have stayed at this hotel many times and I last reviewed the hotel in May 2012.
The location suits us well and we find the studio suite comfortable and functional. A studio suite is pretty much the same size as a standard hotel room but we find them so much more comfortable, particularly for a longer stay. You get a queen bed with nightstand either side, a sofa and armchair, coffee table and small corner table, desk/table and chair, good wardrobe space and a decent sized flatscreen TV with a good selection of channels. You also have a good sized kitchen area with microwave, full-size stove and full-size fridge with freezer compartment, dishwasher, toaster, coffee-maker and a good range of basic utensils supplied. The bathroom is a good size, and there’s also an iron and ironing board.
Since our last visit the rooms have once again been refurbished. This time the kitchen appliances have been replaced, along with the sofa and the lamps. Unfortunately there are still no personal safes in the rooms and I really don’t understand why not. Safe deposit boxes are available at reception but it’s not an ideal arrangement and a safe in the room would be much more convenient.
On this visit we were given a parking pass for the car park and, unlike on other visits, we didn’t see hospital employees using the hotel car park. A new multi-storey car park for the hospital is currently under construction immediately opposite the hotel, next to the existing one. We always managed to find a parking space even on New Year’s Eve when the hotel was fully booked.
After a long day’s travelling, it was good to arrive ‘home’ and receive a friendly welcome. Our room request had been noted and granted, and in fact it was the third time that we had spent Christmas in exactly the same room. We were each given a welcome gift of bottled water and snacks, which were much appreciated.
As always, every member of staff was friendly and helpful. Not just at the front desk, but all the housekeeping and maintenance staff always smile and say hello.
The complimentary breakfast is apparently now more expansive, including the facility to make waffles, but it isn’t something we ever take advantage of so I can’t comment on quality or availability.
The nearby Quizno’s has closed but there is now a Five Star Burger restaurant on the corner of 6th and Broadway as well as several other eateries within easy walking distance. I was glad to see that the Jamba Juice is still there. The stretch of Broadway immediately south of 6th is obviously ‘up and coming’ (now known as SoBo, it seems) with new restaurants and bars appearing regularly.
As always, we had a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Unfortunately it is not available for our next visit in May, which is very disappointing, so we will have to stay elsewhere. It’s going to be very strange being in Denver and not be staying at ‘home’!
