We picked this hotel for 2 reasons. One-location to town, and two-the bike library was on site.
For those unfamiliar with FOCO, the bike library provides free bikes all over town. The hotel gave us their website, we signed out 2 bikes, got the keys and rode everywhere for 3 days.
The hotel location is excellent! Right on College Ave. it took us 10 minutes to ride to the city center. We were also very close to Colorado State University's campus which is spread out in every direction from the hotel. Check in was quick and pleasant. We were directed to our second floor room in a building clear across the parking lot. Because we had no car, I asked for a luggage trolley or help up to our room. Unfortunately, they had no cart and no-one to help us. This was tough dragging our stuff across the parking lot, up a flight of stairs, down a couple more stairs before we got to our room. Note to owner: invest in a luggage trolley, please! Corridor hallways looked worn, dark and dirty. Could use an update!
Once in our room, we found the furnishings pleasant, clean and quiet. The bed was very comfortable and the mini fridge was a nice addition. No complaints with the shower and water pressure.
Breakfast was good!. Nice to have scrambled eggs and blueberry waffles. Front desk staff went out of their way to show us bike routes and places to eat. We liked Austin's for dinner. Also, make reservations to visit a brew pub. Besides fantastic bike routes, FOCO has craft beers and breweries. My husband loved New Belgium's tour.
Forgot to mention the nice indoor pool and hot tub. Great after riding all day.
