A nice little hotel with a lot of potential. It is a nice location if you need to be in downtown Denver. The light rail runs right beside, and I do mean right beside the hotel; however, the light rail does not currently go to the airport. You will need a cab, public transit, or an airport shuttle (hotel does not offer a shuttle), or a rental car to get to the hotel. If you get a rental car be prepared to pay premium for parking - $26.00/day; ridiculous.
Check-in and check out was smooth, reception staff were very friendly. Elevators are tired, so be patient when waiting for them and for the doors to open once you have landed. Cookies, coffee and milk in the lobby is a nice touch. Lobby is small, downstairs lounge is a nice place to hangout with friends or family. Staff throughout the hotel were always very friendly and helpful.
Room was okay, it was clean, offered flat screen t.v., lounge chair, desk and chair. Beds can be a hit and miss in hotels; obviously, everyone has different mattress taste but if you like firm you will like these beds. Heating system was a challenge in my room, I had to turn heat way up and keep the fan on to get a comfortable temperature at floor level. Others with our group also had heating issues and loud fans. Bathroom was clean. I suggest the hotel invest is some new shower heads.
Housekeeping did a good job but did not come to my room until after 5:00. That is a little late, and I had just returned from an all day meeting. I told them to come back in an hour; which they did.
We ate at the lounge, Harry's, one night. Food was okay, service was not good, one waitress for a full lounge. If you are arriving at the hotel late, it's 0 degrees outside and you are hungry go for it.
Breakfast is complimentary. Hot food tasted okay. Breakfast staff was very helpful.
There is no pool, no hot tub, there is a steam room but it was "out of service". Fitness room is good. Life Fitness stuff. Strength machines are okay, free weights should be replaced.
As I said, this is a nice hotel with a lot of potential. Upon returning to Denver I would pick another place; however, with time and if recommended by Tripadvisor, I would consider staying here again in the future.
