    This is the overspill from Brown Palace hotel. The latter is far more opulant yet we were told that the rooms were similarly priced to what we paid in the annex.

    Brown Palace is full of character

    Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Inn Downtown Denver

    Decent Budget Hotel


    The downtown Denver Comfort Inn is relatively clean and predictable, as well as affordable. I stayed at this hotel about 5 times in the summer of 2004, as it is the best value for the money I could find in downtown Denver. The furnishings and decor in the lobby are ok, but in the rooms they are quite dated (although they claim they redid the room interiors in 2002, they must have hired a designer in a 1970's time warp). The doors to the rooms have a high undercut, which allows noise from the corridor to enter the rooms. At first I was quite concerned about this, but found it was not an issue. I cannot empasize enough how dated the furniture and decor in the rooms looks, although I do believe the bedspreads, etc. are rather new. The room and bathroom were clean.

    If you stay here you should ask for a room facing the street, rather than the alley - they empty the dumpsters in the alley at about 4:30 in the morning and it woke me up every time (even when I was on second to top floor) until I got smart and requested a room on the street side.

    The hotel is convenient to restaurants and the walking mall in downtown Denver - it is about a block away. There is a Starbucks about a block away that is open until 11 pm.

    The hotel is a downtown layover hotel for Delta airlines and a few others, so there are often many pilots and flight attendants staying at this place, making for good clientelle. There are also business people, and domestic & forieng vacationers.

    The breakfast (at which you observe the aforementioned mix of people) is ok. Standard fare and good selection, just nothing too tasty. There is coffee available all evening.

    The only two complaints I had about this hotel (other than the terrible taste of their interior designer) is that they have no quick check out - you have to wait in line at the desk in the morning to check out, and this sometimes took longer than I wished to spend (10 mins or so).

    The second complaint is that twice I filled out the paperwork to join the Comfort Inn club for frequent stayers, and I never did receive a member number. I asked my admin to call about it and they told her they told her that Comfort Inn has no such club (baloney - the brochures are in the hotel and they have a website). Then I called, and they had me in the computer, and claimed they sent me a packet that I never received. I asked them to send another, which I also never received. So I should have about 2 days of free Comfort Inn nights based on the length of my stays, but I guess I will never get those. This is really more of a corporate issue with Comfort Inn than it is with this particular hotel.

    Great Hotel in a beautiful city


    My husband and I traveled to Denver on business from August 21 through August 30, 2005. This hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the city of Denver. Great city to walk in, and light rail, bus nearby. The hotel is older, but has been redecorated and is very clean. We checked in after midnight due to bad weather delaying our flight. They were ready and very gracious. They upgraded our King room to a two bedroom, two bathroom suite at no additonal charge. The staff was very friendly and helpful and gave great directions to local parks, and wonderful restaurant recommendations. It was a wonderful stay with a great view of the Rocky Mountains. We would defintely stay there again.

    Comfortable Downtown Location!


    We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in May, 2005 and were warmly welcomed - - the reception staff would be the best asset of this hotel. Convenient to 16th Street Mall and The Brown Palace across the road where we enjoyed a lovely dinner. The complimentary breakfast was OK as was the accommodation. Being Downtown, it was easy to explore the city. All in all, we would recommend this hotel because of the reasonable price.

    It was great


    Loved the hotel. amazing location. wonderful service. fast elevators.

    Great price. what could be bad?

    while you're here go across the street and splurge on tea at the brown palace. look up at the ceiling - the lobby is wondrous

    Convienent location


    Convienent location right downtown with an easy walk to the Convention Center and shopping. The easy access to the Brown Palace is a plus with its atmosophere and excellent restaurants.

    Our room was small and quite average but we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast! It was better than many are.

    One down side. We booked over a month ahead and I confirmed the details a week before we arrived, but our reservation was all messed up when we got there. We were given the wrong room and no one wanted to rectify the situation at first. It was very inconvienent and a big, unnecessary hassle. Someone had decided that we were with a large group of people who had rented a block of rooms and we three friends were put in a very small room with one bed. We are friends but we are not that friendly! After we convienced the front desk that we three women aged 40, 50, and 60 were not part of a volley ball tourment, things went a bit better. Seemed kind of a no brainer to me but not to the young man at the desk. Three of our friends who didn't have reservations and checked in after us were given a suite for approximately the same price of our small and very average room.

    All in all I would try staying there again though, due to the centralized location and the Brown Palace.

    Good hotel.


    Excellent downtown location and a decent hotel for the price. Nice rooms with good views if you are on the upper floors.



    Stayed here in July 2004 for three nights. For the price its good value, basic and reasonably comfortable. However, the queen sized beds are on the small side for two and its not possible to get a family room with three single beds in it. So for a family of five, you either have to take three rooms or be uncomfortably squashed into two rooms.

    Breakfast is reasonable. Access to downtown is very good and there is a nice restaurant next door.

    Great deal


    This hotel is my favourite spot to stay at in Denver. It is very centrally located, close to the 16th Street Mall, making is easy to go out in the evening. Driving to it is also simple, as both Broadway and 6th Ave are fairly close. The hotel offers valet parking ($16/night) making life pretty easy. The hotel is clean, offers some of the amenities in the Brown Palace across the street. All in all -- great value and convenience.

    Not bad for the price


    We stayed in Denver for two nights at the Comfort Inn. For the price ($75/night) it was not bad. Small rooms and bathrooms, but clean. Very close to all activites on 16th Street and right across the street from The Brown Palace Hotel (very beautiful, a must see) Only downside was you could hear everything going on in other rooms (talking, showers and toilets flushing) For the price, it was not a bad place. A great place for the budget minded.

    Great bargain in Excellent Location


    This is the only place I will stay in Downtown Denver from now on. It is one block from 16th Street Mall...near Hard Rock Cafe, Starbucks, etc. The rooms are quite small, but clean and nicely decorated. I payed $90...parking is $17. That is an excellent deal for the location. Great for business or leisure.

There was a big fountain for the kids to play in. They loved that.  Tomorrow we head to Colorado Springs. We are trying to decide if we want to go the long way through the mountains for the short way. It's a big different of about 3 hours. You'll find out tomorrow what we ...

    ... eat at the first day or two will give you the chance to peruse menus during those days and stop in on the later days of your trip -- preserving some sense of spontaneity.So now that I've (hopefully) convinced you of the merits of planning, the topic I'll tackle next is "how much" planning to do. There's a bare minimum that you can get by with to planning things down to the hour -- what's the optimal amount?

    We woke up and went upstairs to have some really nice pancakes for breakfast. Then Dad, Chris and I went to Jax and then the lab. Jax was a outdoors store which sold fishing gear and bait which is what we needed to get. Near the car park there was a field where there were heaps of really cute prairie dogs digging holes on the ground and wagging their little tails. Then we went to the university where Chris worked at to feed some of his ...
