“Excellent Service, rooms are beautiful staff can't do enough to help”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

We stay here every year on our annual motorcycle trip. We will continue to stay at the hotel Denver. The staff, scott manager was awesome! The rooms are clean, comfortable and the hotel is within walking distance from the hot springs.
The only bad experience was the female bartender in the brew pub Sunday night, black glasses with sour puss on her face. Very nasty and sarcastic. We won't return to the brew pub . Instead of brew pub go to an excellent resturant around the corner called the The Grand, the burger, fish and steaks were out of this world. The chef Chris is the best.
We will return to the hotel denver!

Room Tip: Ask Scott, manager at the front desk, he is very helpful, just ask.

Very helpful and friendly hotel and restaurant staff. We were running late for rafting so hotel staff called and made sure they held for us. Rooms were good size. Only issue was you cannot see Colorado river from room. Restaurant food was good quality, tasty and good price value. We were seven and they had no problems serving us in the lobby were we set up our own mini- restaurant

We booked at the last minute after Amtrak stopped service for 2 days and we were stranded. They gave us a very good price! The lobby is very comfortable and fresh fruit and water is available. The rooms were homey with quilts and antique furniture. The train station is right across the street but we never heard any noise in our room. It's right in the action of downtown Glenwood Springs and we enjoyed walking around and shopping.

After camping for a week with our two kids and a dog, we stayed at the Hotel Denver. This was our first hotel stay with our dog and the front desk staff was so helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to accomodate us and our pet. Nice having air-conditioning after spending so much time in the heat. Great location, being connected to the brew pub. Great beer and atmosphere, not so great food. Easy to get to the hot springs and Rio Grande bike path.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 205, two queen beds, overlooking the river and Amtrak station. Very spacious. Amp...

We stayed at the Hotel Denver the evening after the Triple Bypass bike ride on July 9th. It really was lovely, well done all around. Staff were friendly, genuine, efficient. Our room (a "standard" room) was delightful. The view was quite good - out over the river and train station. My concerns about train noise proved unfounded - we did hear a couple of trains, but the noise wasn't a problem at all. I had passed through Glenwood Springs at times over the years and thought we'd want to stay at the Hotel Colorado there, but the reviews on this website warned against it, and we surely made the right choice. They have a really good touch at the Hotel Denver. The location was terrific, and the restaurants nearby recommended by the staff proved to be excellent.

When checking out I noticed a manager sort of guy at the desk (Sunday morning), and asked him if he was the manager whose name I'd seen on the literature, and he said yes. It fit - he was intelligent, friendly, efficient, and working away at the desk on a Sunday morning.

Lovely place, with some soul. You bet we'll go back if we get a chance.

We stayed in Glenwood for 2 nights at The Hotel Denver. I have stayed in Glenwood many times on business, but typically at the Holiday Inn, this was my first stay at Hotel Denver. We arrived, checked in and then went to park...which I would suggest dropping all your luggage first, b/c the lots are a little ways to park and carry everything...We went up to our room, it was the last room in the southwest corner, room 300 I think. It is one of the smallest rooms I've ever stayed in! The room felt like a dungeon. Just not what i expected at all, furthermore the bed was not all that comfy...

Since we were there for a wedding, that I was in, we were able to see many different rooms that our friends had...our room was not like any of the other rooms we saw...the other rooms had hard wood flooring and much nicer furniture and were way more spacious... we just had a standard room (king or queen bed)...if you stay here make sure you get one of the nicer suites I guess or a double room or something...b/c our dungeon was just not nice! I would have been much happier w/ a different room based on what I saw. We did have the brew package they were offering when we booked..so we have a $20 g/c for the brewpub and a day pass to the hot springs.

The brewpub is great! The beer is fantastic!

Definitely check out the Glenwood Hot Springs! Very nice and a quick walk over the hwy from hotel denver.

The best part of hotel denver is there location! They are walking distance to pretty much everything you might want to do while staying in GWS!

Room Tip: Upgrade to a suite

This hotel is, or was, a bit more expensive than all the rest but it was a true treat. From the very friendly and courteous front desk staff to the four poster bed this was a true treat. The location is excellent right downtown and within walking distance to everything. We were given complimentary towels to use at the pool, which is very romantic at night and were generally treated like royalty. The Hotel Denver blows away the old broken down hotel across the river which I have stayed at many, many times, I will definitely stay at The Hotel Denver again.

Room Tip: I requested a mountain view room and got it. You pay more for views.
