Hotel Denver
Ranked #1 of 24 Hotels in Glenwood Springs
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 17, 2014

We have stayed many times at the Hotel Denver and each and every time the staff goes above and beyond to make us feel like we are returning family, as well as providing excellent service. The rooms are very nicely appointed making it feel like you are in a picture perfect western Colorado town and not just another hotel. The rooms have always been clean and comfortable. We have stayed in the Penthouse (private deck and hot tub), the Cupola ( 2 story spacious and beautiful views) as well as several other rooms. They are with walking distance to most local places of interest. I can't imagine visiting Glenwood Springs and NOT staying there. See you again and Thanks again! David and Rochelle S.

We found this place through Trip Advisor two years ago and were supremely satisfied with our stay. It is dog-friendly, romantic and quaint. In the heart of downtown with easy access to the River Trail and Hot Springs Pool, you couldn't ask for a better location. Charming decor with antiques everywhere.

Both parents and kids appreciated the simple pleasure of easy and friendly registration, great ambiance and convenience, tasty attached restaurant, helpful local recommendations (particularly the Revue Show) and flexible arrangements in the library to offset habitually tardy Amtrak. Wholly recommended without reservation

Room Tip: We splurged in the cupola room, but all are gorgeous

This is the perfect choice. Vintage hotel, sparkling clean, antiques in the rooms, and top it off, this is a staff that cares. And the guests were just as friendly. Everyone spoke in the elevators, waiting for elevator, just sitting around in the lobby. The room was very large and nicely shaped, not the typical long narrow rooms of most hotels. The king bed was excellent, the rooms were quiet, even though it was a very family friendly hotel (the 4th of July). The lobby was so welcoming I took a book down and sat comfortably and read. We were unable to bring our dog but she would have been right at home. Many people had dogs and they were all well behaved, no barking. We would come back and bring our dog too. You will not regret a stay here.

Room Tip: we got the last room for the night, and it was 3rd floor King with no view and we loved every bit of...

We booked last minute and were offered an excellent price on an upgraded room! We were on the second floor in a huge room with four or five very large windows and two queen beds. It had a very nice sitting area with nice antique touches and gorgeous quilts. We were very pleased to stay in such a beautiful place and extremely happy they allowed well behaved dogs. Everyone was very friendly. They even had a laundry where we could wash our clothes. Since we have a cabin on Grand Mesa, we will definitely be returning to Hotel Denver for a luxury getaway!

Room Tip: Ask to be placed away from their restaurant/bar. It can get loud in the evening until midnight.

Since I used to work at a resort, I have high expectations when traveling. I'm taking the time to write a review to help others better know what to expect out of a stay here.

We found the hotel easily but had to park in a lot across the street and tote our luggage to the front entrance, as there didn't seem to be a front drive to stop and check in, nor any type of valet service available. No big deal. Next, we checked in. I was impressed by how friendly the front desk agent was, but the lobby looked dingy, dated, and frankly not very clean (there were spider webs or cob webs in the high windows).

We got our keys (which were actual keys, not key cards) and made our way up the elevator to room 314. It was a river view queen room that looked out on the Amtrak station. The space was tight, with dingy, dated decor to boot: blond wood furniture with dents and dings, tacky hot-springs-themed artwork, a quilt on the bed, and a tiled, commercial-looking ceiling. The bathroom was tiny, with barely enough space to fit the basic white tiled tub shower with rain shower head, a sink with no vanity, and the toilet. Everything did look clean, though.

The bed was comfortable, and the A/C worked well. I'm usually a heavy sleeper (I can even fall asleep with the tv on), but I could hear everything: kids running down the hallway at 10 pm, people talking loudly on the street below in the middle of the night (with window shut tightly!), and the man in the room next to ours (312?) coughing through the early morning hours. I "woke up" well before my alarm went off feeling completely exhausted. My husband went down to the "coffee bar" in the lobby, and it didn't even have cream available, just milk.

By the way, there were no special touches like bath robes in the closet, extra towels/pillows, or luxury toiletries (unless you count the Andes mints on the dresser as such)--just the most basic accommodations you can imagine.

When I checked out, our balance was more than $200. Frankly, I felt ripped off. Even though the staff were cordial, I will not stay here again, nor can I recommend it to others.

Quick recap:
Pros: friendly staff, convenient downtown location close to restaurants and across the river from the hot springs pool
Cons: cost (not a good value), noise, bare necessities experience
