My wife and I drive to Denver from Colorado Springs, once or twice a year, just to get away and have a relaxing, and romantic weekend together. We like to get a room with a whirlpool tub to relax in. The choices are a pretty limited. B&Bs are not really my thing. They are a little like staying in your grandma's spare bedroom The place we usually stay is a little pricey, and we decided we were going to stay an extra night and needed something priced a little lower. I read all the reviews on this hotel, and even though most reviews were favorable, I was a little skeptical. First, this is not exactly my favorite location in Denver. It is too busy, too crowded and too loud. With that said, the location is relatively close to downtown, the zoo, the nature and science musuem, the botanical garden, Dave and Busters and Cherry Creek shopping district. This motel is well off of Colorado Blvd. so the traffic noise is not noticeable. Many of the reviews talked about how great the staff is, but commented that the hotel needed updated. I decided to give it a chance, and honostly I'm glad I did. As for the staff, I didn't have much interaction with them, but the young man at the counter was polite and friendly. I booked online, so check in was painless. It took less than 5 minutes. The lobby was nice. As for our room. I was very pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean. The decor was nice. I"m not a decorator, so I don't know if it was the absolute latest in fashion, but the carpet was clean and not worn, the the linens were clean and nice, the furniture was in good condition, the bathroom was clean. All the fixtures were in good condition. The King bed was very comfortable. The heater and AC worked flawlessly. It is October in Colorado and yes, we used both. Many people have commented on the old 25" CRT television. Our room was updated with a new flat screen tv. I peronally am not a fan of watching distorted standard resolution tv on what is essentially an oversize computer monitor, but to those who are concerned about it, the room does have a flat/wide screen tv. The hot tub was nice. It was a little small, and the motor/pump was noisy. It had only four jets, but with that said, this is what I consider to be a budget priced room, so in my opinion, it was a very nice ammenity. The tub was in the room, not in a bathroom, so we could relax in our tub IN our room. I liked that. Our room was on the 5th. floor, East side of the hotel away from all the hustle and bustle so it was absolutely peaceful. We didn't hear a thing the whole time we were there. This room served our purpose perfectly. A lot of people commented on the breakfast buffet. Here is my opinion. If you've ever stayed at a hotel that has this type of free breafast, you know what is offered. This breakfast had all the normal choices. It is not intended to be a full service breakfast. If you want that, there are plenty of restaurants in the area. We were able to get a decent breakfast, fast and free, without leaving the hotel. The dining area was nice, clean and quiet. For this type of breakfast, I would rate it above average. I walked around and looked at some of the other ammenities. They have conference rooms, which we did not use. They have a small guest laundry, They have a little store in the lobby where you can buy snacks and convenience items. They have an indoor pool, with a smaller wading pool. They have a VERY SMALL workout room, and a VERY SMALL business center. The business center has a small counter with two computers, a printer and some phone books. We did use one of the computers to look up and print an address. One thing that struck me was that they offer free wi-fi. I did not take my laptop with me, but pricier hotels we have stayed in before charge $10.00 per day for internet. The bottom line is I would stay here again. I like to try different places, but I am always looking for a place I know I can go to and not worry about what kind of surprises await me. This hotel is a great choice and a very good value. I recommend it for budget minded business and/or pleasure.
