Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard By Marriott Denver Downtown
This hotel had everything we wanted. Great location, staff and room. We used the coin laundry, business center and fitness center and all were clean and everything worked. Would definitely stay here again.
We stayed at the Courtyard Downtown on a Saturday night; we were in town for a play and an evening away from the kids. The hotel was excellent in a lot of ways. Front-desk staff were great, very helpful and thoughtful. The atmosphere is nice as well.
The room itself (king bed) was very nice, but a tad small. We didn't mind, as it was just the two of us and we weren't there long. But I've been in bigger rooms, that's for sure. We had one with an enormous window overlooking the 16th street mall, which was nice except that there was some construction going on on the mall during the day (obviously, not at all a reflection on the hotel).
My biggest complaint, though, is with check-in and check-out times. They have the latest guaranteed check-in I've seen (4:00 p.m.), and the earliest check-out (11:00 a.m.). A word to the wise: Hire some more housekeeping staff. Not that there's anything wrong with the staff they have--the room was impeccable. But obviously they need more of them if they have to have a five-hour turnaround. We showed up at 3:00 hoping to check in, but our room wasn't ready. The staff were as accomodating as they needed to be, but we still ended up walking around and having a drink to waste time, rather than checking into our room and relaxing. We could have taken a different room, with a view of a brick wall or of the hotel's interior, but should we have had to make that decision?
The next morning felt a bit rushed, especially since the daylight-savings-time shift had occurred that night. These were not huge issues, but for the price you pay at this place (on hundred twenty dollars for our relatively modest room), you have a right to expect better.
We didn't do valet parking, so I can't speak to that. The one other amenity I can mention was the free high-speed wired internet (I much prefer this to wireless), which was perfect. The location of the hotel is ideal for downtown--two or three blocks from the Performing Arts Center, right on the 16th Street Mall, etc. And we'd stay there again, possibly, if they would agree to an early check-in and/or late check-out without charging us for it (I don't know whether they would ahve agreed to that this time, as we didn't bother asking).
Most Comfortable Bed Ever!
The hotel is convenient to everything downtown, especially the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. I am an insomniac--very picky about hotel rooms--and this one was GREAT. It was quiet and the king size bed was the most comfortable I've EVER slept in; no kidding! I intend to call them and ask what kind of mattress it was; I need to buy a new bed and I've never slept on one that good. I used the valet parking and was pleased. The service is excellent. It is quiet, clean, with everything you need and a great staff. Check out shows at the Denver Center Theatre Company; better than Broadway.
A nice place to stay for 2 nights...
We got in for 2 night stay Oct 22nd - Oct 23rd. After noticing we had to toddlers with us we immediately were up graded to a larger room. Facing 16th street. The room was a bit on the cold side since it had a large old window. The location was good, our first night we didn't have to take out the car. Even though I think for parking $17 per night for outside parking was a bit on the pricey side. You can't beat the location, Starbucks and a Cafe is attached to the hotel. We had a very nice breakfast at the Rialto Cafe. We either walked or took the shuttle to get around.
If you have small kids as we did, one afternoon we took them to the Cherry Creek Mall that had a play area where they can jump run on breakfast scuptures.
Would stay here again, but also would like to try another location
Excellent downtown hotel
After staying at the construction-filled Executive Tower, the Courtyard Downtown was like walking in to heaven. Friendly staff, spacious room, on 16th Street; right where all the action is. Rialto Cafe and Starbucks on the first floor. Whirlpool and fitness center in the basement. Great hotel in downtown. I loved it.
Courtyard Marriott Downtown Denver is cozy
This hotel is ideally located if you are on foot and travelling the 16Th Street, Convention Center, Coors Field, Union train depot and access to car rental businesses. Our room was spacious and comfortable and very clean. Just ask for the larger rooms-the price was 99-159 a night for us. Lighting was good and the hotel had a security system ( room key cards to enter hotel and use of elevators. ) It was convenient to go downstairs for complimentary coffee or tea, visit the Starbucks, or dine at the Rialto. Both had outdoor cafe seating which was pleasant. When at the Courtyard we felt they were very accomodating.
Nice spot in downtown Denver
Stayed in the Courtyard on a Saturday night after flying into Denver and before driving into the mountains.
The staff was very friendly. We arrived early and they asked if we wanted to wait for a room with a view to become available. We said no thanks, so they upgraded us into a spa room and checked us in. The room was a decent size and very clean.
The hotel is located in the heart of the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall and you can walk to almost everything.
Only downside is the walls are paper thin. You can hear everyone coming and going. If you're a light sleeper, you may want to stay somewhere else.
If you want convenience, the Courtyard is a good bet
I stayed at the Courtyard for business downtown and at the Capitol. It was walking distance to everything I needed to access (so no rental car), on the 16th street mall, with a Starbucks and restaurant attached. Sleeping rooms are small/average for a Courtyard, and front desk staff were helpful, if not overly pleasant. Hotel provides free access to computer/ printer/copier in the business center; fitness room has a universal machine and several cardio machines (two tvs in fitness room don't get any reception, though); complimentary coffee; comfortable furnishings in the common areas - rooms are average, but there are nice seating areas in the lobby and lower level conference area; access to local papers and USA Today; and hairdryers that are not fixed in the bathroom wall. Location is terrific, too. On a purse strings note, the hotel is not a bargain - rate I received was comparable to the Hyatt a few blocks away. This hotel does have some nice touches that make it a 'click above' the average Courtyard, and I would stay here again on business if I could get a good rate.
Small rooms, great reception area, centrally located
My son and I stayed at the Courtyard Denver Downtown when it was a little cold. He had a tournament at the Convention Center. It was snowing lightly and it is 4 very long blocks, so we took a cab. It is in a great location with the 16th Street mall right there and a Starbucks connected to the hotel. My only concern was late at night, after 9p.m. there were a lot of police cars and officers on every street corner, with transients mulling around. There is a free bus that runs along 16th street and runs approx 2 miles. Unfortunately when it is cold the bus is warm and a lot of people are sitting on the bus just to stay warm.
The room was small with very high ceilings (approx12-14'high) The room itself was around 12x12'. We booked two doubles but ended up with one king in a non-smoking room. My son, 14 years old was not thrilled but he was happy it was a non-smoking room. The rooms were clean and the daily service was good.
OK Hotel in excellent location
This hotel is in an excellent location right on the 16th Street Mall.
The hotel itself is only OK. The rooms are bright and sunny. The walls are thin and the heat/air system is very loud. Biggest problem I had was the noise. I could hear the people in the other rooms talking and the heat/air system was really, really loud and woke me up everytime it turned on. I would suggest staying at the Adam's Mark just down the street...or the Comfort Inn on 17th Street. I know that the Comfort Inn sounds economical, but it is a really nice highrise hotel in a great area one block from the Adam's Mark Hotel. Courtyard was overpriced.
Adam's Mark and Comfort Inn are usually less expensive and much nicer places to stay. Take this advice from someone who spends much time in downtown Denver and enjoys the 16th Street Mall area.

We left Sydney at 1pm on Saturday and arrived in L.A. 3 hours earlier. The flight wasn't that exciting, didn't have a window, not there was much to see but water, so we tried to sleep, oh and watch a few movies.

... what the days will be like ahead - the memories we will make- and the people we will see and meet - this crazy adventure far away from the normalcy such as the two girls in front and the soon to be college student eagerly sitting next to me. I feel like holding my breath as time seems to stand still. The calm before the storm. The silence before the sea of chaos. The anticipation. The joy of wonderment and excitement. I'm as ready as I'll ever be. Let's do ...
... Wash in Firefly, the pirate in Dodgeball
Notes: Okay, this guy is AWESOME and very entertaining. He is hilarious! Every person who asked a question received something autographed. Some of the items were FANTASTIC (scripts from past movies/tv shows, scripts from deleted scenes, Firefly pictures) and others were just ridiculous (a box of claritin, an empty box of advil, a hotel phone from his last hotel!, just to name
a few things)
We woke up this morning to find a blanket of snow over everything outside. So we had some breakfast and went outside in the snow, we even got to walk on the frozen river. Then we got ready to drive to Beaver Meadows Ranch. It was about an hours drive and we saw a lot of mountains along the way. We we got outside and it was FREEZING! We walked through the wind and snow to the place where we were going tubing. What you do to tube is grab ...
... the last 50 miles when we hit congestion as the labor day weekend was underway and the roads were busy. We got to our Hotel The Magnolia in downtown Denver about 6:30 and after checking in went out to explore and get something to eat. Tamara was not impressed, thought there were too many down and outs and people on drugs. The rest of us thought it was fairly ...
