I stayed at the Ramada Denver Downtown and I had heard a lot of things before about the location (East Colfax, known for its particular features), not at all positive. After staying there for two weeks, I can say I don't regret my choice.
First of all, it's not a five-star hotel nor it intends to be so. I stayed at a no-frills room (which was very well taken care of during my visit) with basic features, such as a big TV, a very nice bed and a desk good enough to use my laptop on.
The hotel is in the process of being renovated and it shows. The business center is brand new and has state-of-the-art computers. However, the process isn't complete but it should be over soon.
East Colfax can be noisy with its clubby-like scene and you can find the occasional homeless guy begging for money. However, there's several eating choices not very far away, ranging from fast food chains such as Papa John's, Wendy's, McDonald's; up to pizza places like SliceWorks and a very nice Italian bistro named Caffe Sanora right across the street which might surprise you with healthy lunch alternatives. If you want a fancy dinner, downtown is not far away. You can also find a very nice old-fashioned barbershop a block away. Definitely worth trying if you need a haircut.
The location couldn't be more strategic: 5 minutes away from the Civic Center (including its main bus station), and not very far from the 16th street mall, Coors Field and other locations. There is even a Post Office and a grocery store not very far from there if you need to get a snack or send some correspondence.
They also have a great shuttle service that can take you to lots of places downtown and even to the upscale Cherry Creek Mall, home of brands such as Burberry, Apple and department stores such as Macy's, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom. One thing that I really appreciated was the punctuality of their schedule. They go at the scheduled times and pick you up at the exact time you agreed upon.
The staff is very helpful, kind and they cater to your needs. They really go the extra mile and are extremely kind and supportive. Most of them, if not all, are bilingual English/Spanish. I was very happy to stay at the Ramada for almost two weeks. If you want a reasonably priced hotel not too far away from downtown, and you don't need luxury features, this is a good place to go to.
