Marriott Denver West
We bid online at one of the lodging auction services, and obtained a rate of $103 a night for a hotel room at the Denver West Marriott. The room was a bit tatty, with the following specific issues: a foot long stripe of liquid shoe blacking stained the carpet, numerous scrapes adorned the walls, two inch-long box elder bugs were creeping along the ceiling, numerous dark hairs clung tenaciously to the sink, a crusty half-dollar sized spot of indeterminate origin embellished the blanket covering the foot of the bed. We talked with management and were offered another room. Another gripe with this price point is that breakfast was in the $11 price range, and there was a similar daily fee, $12 or so, for Internet usage.
I used the coin-operated laundry facilities, located down on the first floor near the indoor pool and the gym, both of which looked to be large and well-equipped. Detergent was available for sale in the laundry area. We didn’t utilize the indoor or outdoor pools, though I thought the hours (8-11) were more liberal than many places we’ve stayed. I noticed a number of conference rooms on the lower level, as well. On the ground floor, the lobby area was tidy and nicely decorated with a number of significant sized, detailed hand-carved birds of prey, which we admired as we came into the hotel; each staff member we talked with was professional, kind and helpful. A small Starbucks shop and a lounge/dining establishment open off of the lobby. The elevators are some distance from the front desk, and may be inconvenient for those with mobility concerns.
The location was terrific for accessing the mountains, shopping, and even downtown Denver, since the hotel is located right off of I-70, and we did not have an appreciable amount of highway noise.
My family was comfortable, but disappointed with this hotel. We found better value and cleaner facilities at a lower star-rated hotel in the Denver-West area. We also felt we were nickle-and-dimed at the extra charges for services/meals that are often free at other hotels.
