I can't say enough about this Double Tree property -- the location is perfect, the staff welcoming, the ambience inviting, and the rooms clean and comfy. LOVE that it is a five minute walk to the historic downtown. We stayed in a king suite (facing the historic downtown) for three days preceding a business meeting, and then switched to a river-view double queen for the three day meeting. Both rooms had balconies, were very clean and the beds comfortable, but the suite was really large and roomy. If I had to pick the perfect room I would suggest a king suite facing the river (for privacy -- you may prefer looking towards the historic downtown.) Also, the top floor is the Hilton Honors floor -- we are members and stayed there. I really love the ambience of the hotel lobby and hallways -- you just know you are in Colorado and near a historic area. Also, there is a supermarket next door, and we could trot over to buy snacks and whatever toiletries we had forgotten (we always forget something!) The breakfast buffet was a great value extensive and inexpensive (we did into run into anything stale or inedible -- it was all fresh and yummy.) Only two negatives: one, that the calories were printed on the back of the cookie -- I'd just rather not know! and two, one evening the entire fourth floor hallway was heavy with the smell of marijuana smoke. Yes, it is legal to smoke pot in Colorado, but not in public places, and certainly not on a non-smoking floor. The GM took care of it immediately, but it took a while for the smell to dissipate.
