We did a 2 week road trip through Colorado and this hotel was the most expensive of the 6 hotels we stayed at...even a 4 star in downtown Denver. When we arrived during the afternoon of our first day, there was no parking (very limited spaces) in front of hotel, so my husband pulled into the public lot right next door. I went back in to see where we were supposed to park. The woman at the desk was not overly friendly and said that we should go around the back of the hotel to the parking in the alley. We did and there were even less spaces, which were all taken. Back inside I went and told the woman and she said that we would have to use the public parking and gave us a pass to put in our window. A very nice young man helped us take our luggage inside. Our room was on the ground floor right by the stairs. Generally this wasn't a problem for the 4 nights we stayed there, but they allow children and one night we had a rather rambunctious one running around at almost 11 o'clock. Our room was very clean and spacious with a window air conditioning unit. There seemed to be at least 3 different people at the front desk and numerous different people serving breakfest (which was excellent) on the days that we were there. After a very disappointing dinner at a restaurant on Main Street our first night, I asked yet another new person there at night to recommend a good one. She did and it was good. Most of the people working there were not genuinely friendly, just doing their job, except for Nancy who gave us the restaurant recommendation. She was very helpful and pleasant. You could tell that she enjoyed what she was doing whereas we didn't get that feeling from the other employees. There was a very friendly young girl who had just graduated from high school who served breakfast that made you feel welcome also. On the last night we were there, they had a blue grass concert in the grassy area to the side of the hotel, which was open to the public. They were very good, but a lot of people were there just to talk and socialize and we had a hard time hearing the band. Overall, it was a decent stay, but over priced.
