The best part of this hotel is the location. It is in a very convenient location for walking around the downtown area. I was in town for a conference during a very busy week in Denver and this was the only room I could find in the company price range.
The room layout was nice for my corner room. Big windows stretching around the entire room with a rounded corner was nice. The size was small I guess, but as a New Yorker living in Manhattan I thought the size was fine considering this is a downtown location.
The major problem is the cleanliness and general rundown-ness of the hotel. My shower was finicky. I could never completely make water only come out of the showerhead and not the faucet. 50% of the time my tub wouldn't drain while in the shower so I would end up standing in a 4 inch puddle of water by the end of the shower. I made the mistake of knocking off the sheet covering the comforter on my bed to reveal a few stains. The bath towels are very thin and there were noticeable blue and red makeup stains on one of the clean towels placed in my room.
The free breakfast in the morning was okay. Hash browns, sausage, scrambled egg, waffle machine, and cereals were okay and nice to have access too when on the go.
The free wifi is terrible. On the 16th floor it was completely unusable. I had to take of my business on the bottom floor.
Also the walls of the rooms were a little thin. Definitely things I could hear through the walls from my neighbors, but they were pretty considerate and quiet during evening hours.
There are definitely worse places to end up, but if you are on a tighter budget and care about location this will work. Otherwise I would recommend looking elsewhere. My other co-workers seemed to have better experiences in the hotel during our stay so maybe it varies room to room.
