My company could not find any "name brand" hotel rooms in the area of Centennial airport for me and my flight crew. This was to be a 2 night stay that extended to 3. When I first learned we'd be staying at a Golf Club, I thought it might lack amenities that we are used to in a "business" hotel. I was wrong!
The Lone Tree Golf Club and Hotel was built in the early '80's and has only 15 rooms, with approximately half overlooking the practice greens and several holes of the Arnold Palmer designed course. I was in a course-side room that was about 20 feet above ground level. The room, while somewhat dated with the early 80"s dark furniture, was very roomy. The bed was comfortable, but I would have preferred a down pillow in addition to the foam pillows used. My room was more of a mini-suite with a small bar area, microwave and refrigerator. It had plenty of work space with a desk and a very nice deck that overlooks the golf course. (We were experiencing more February-like weather than May-like during our stay with rain, snow and hail - sadly, the deck went unused). I also found the room to be very quiet, which can be unusual in a hotel, especially one that is somewhat of a "resort".
The staff was very friendly, welcoming and accommodating! I ate 2 meals in the restaurant. Neither meal was particularly outstanding (a taco salad that looked great but lacked the flavor to go with it, and a standard hot breakfast). That said, it is always a plus for me when I can get food on property. There are plenty of restaurants nearby (I highly recommend Via Baci for excellent, authentic Neapolitan pizza and some nice wine).
There are no workout facilities on property. But the hotel provides complimentary access to the Lone Tree Recreational center, a 7min drive from the hotel. I had a chance to use this facility. It is very new, modern, and has everything you could want in a fitness / recreational center! But you do have to have a car to get there. The hotel provides no transportation.
I wish I was a golfer. Had the weather been more inviting, I probably would have rented a set of clubs and hit a round of nine just to embarrass myself. The course looks beautiful, and is very well maintained.
I can recommend this hotel - especially if you enjoy golf.
