Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree By Hilton Hotel Denver - Stapleton North
Very Friendly Staff
The Maids were very friendly. They made you feel at home and they kept our room very clean and always said Hi when you met them down the corrider. Other Staff was Friendly as well, Thanks
Great for what we wanted
We stayed one night at this hotel. It was convenient because they offered free shuttle service from the airport. It is 18 miles from the airport to this hotel, but there does not seem to be much in between. This put us close to town so that we were able to get an early start the next day. This also got us away from the expensive car rentals at the airport. We went on a holiday weekend so the car rental prices at the airport were very expensive. By staying at the Red Lion we were able to get a car in town at a much lower rate. There is an Enterprise car rental next door. We thought the lobby was very nice and our room was clean and nicely furnished. The beds were comfortable. I had read some bad reviews, but our stay was great. The staff was extremely helpful. They were eager to answer my questions about bus schedules and even informed me about their own shuttle schedule. I would recommend this hotel anytime. We did hear a couple of trains but they did not bother us. Also close by are many stores and restaurants. We are fans of Panera Bread and there was one very close by.
Three star it's not
Certainly not a stop for the business traveller. The lobby shows very well but snells very bad, don't let the pictures fool you.
The wireless connection in the rooms fail every few minutes. Some electrical outlets in the room were not functioning. This hotel is sorrounded by trains and a Yellow Cab operation.
Avoid this hotel at all costs
Not worth it
Booked on priceline-what a joke. Rude staff, dirty rooms and horrible location.(Industrial) Priceline is usually excellent on their ratings but this time they are way off on the 3 star rating. The lobby is 3 star while the rest of the hotel is a low 2 star. The concierge told me there was no downtown transportation as they acted like they could care less.
Choose another hotel and skip the Red Lion.
Better then I expected
I stayed at this hotel for 2 reasons 1.) price 2.) free shuttle downtown. For the price I paid around $50 a night I was very happy with the room and serive. The entrance to the hotel is hard to find and the free shuttle downtown is confusing to use at first. The breakfast buffet is also overpriced. But now that I've done it once and know how to find it and how to use the shuttle and to avoid the breakfast I will for sure be staying here again on my next Denver get away. Because you get a lot for your $
Hotel security is very bad.
I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. I had a really bad experience, my laptop was stolen from my room. Street leading to the hotel entrance is too confusing. Even the service is very bad, I called house keeping 3 times for coffee, but still got them after 4 hours.
Room was clean & quiet. There's nothing around the hotel. You'll need to drive to get downtown or depend on the hotel van for transportation.
Not worthy of 3 star rating! Avoid if possible.
Although the front desk staff was nice, everything else is well below average. Let us check in somewhat early.
Rooms had sticky floors and dark. Stains all over chairs and even ceiling. No desk for working on PC/etc.
Elevator was disgusting. Signs around hotel said "Under Construction" but you could tell by all the writing on the bare plywood that the elevator had been torn apart and left for months.
No ice machines except 4th floor. Went to 4th floor to find torn apart furniture laying all over the hallways.
They wrap and roll your pillows in the dirty outer bedcovers instead of under the sheets...nasty.
T.V. reception like old antenna days.
A/C window/wall unit sounded like a pinball machine filled with ping pong balls.
Had to wait 25 minutes for a seat for dinner with only 3 other patries dining at the time. Once we were seated, nobody came back for 15 minutes so we left.
Had to resubscribe to internet service everyday. And, not cheap.
Plenty of parking though hard to find first time.
Cheap and it shows
Just stayed at the Red Lion Central for three nights attending a conference. I had an interior room but a friend had an exterior room that faced the railroad tracks. Train came by nightly at 2:30 a.m. blowing it's horn. Hotel says that's it's going thru a remodel job but I didn't see it. No water in pool when I arrived. They were filling it on the day I left. Gym equipment was outdated. My room was okay. Furniture was old. No stopper in sink would cause concern if I was taking off jewerly over sink. Food service was bad. On the lunch buffet, they didn't have bread out until I asked them if they were going to put it out. Food service in bar area was a joke. Coors Light draft was $4.00!! Would not recommend this hotel unless you are on a very tight budget
Wasn't as expected
The Red Lion Hotel Central Denver
The street leading to the hotel main entrance is very confusing; anybody who isn't familiar with the streets will end up in either the airport or Boulder. The hotel was noticeably noisy; it's located near a major railroad and highways with high-traffic of heavy trucks. There were no good insulation between the adjacent rooms; you can easily hear the sounds next-door especially during the night. In addition, a strange suction voice that never stopped all day long was really annoying.
The dial-up internet connection doesn't work? The hotel shuttle runs several times to Downtown Denver with the first trip starting at 12:55pm, which is not convenient if attending meetings during the mornings. No refrigerator inside the guestroom or a complementary breakfast served.
The hotel's front-desk and house keeping services are quite good. It has a convenient location with about 25 minutes drive to downtown and within walking distance from the Quebec shopping center. Overall the ratings would be not bad and give it 2.5/5.

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 ...

The run loop that you do twice appears to be mostly flat and rolling with a sharp downhill a few blocks. You will also be climbing back up that downhill. Remember to treat that uphill as if you are running up a set of stairs. Lean into the hill, and bounce up with quick, short strides, and raising your knees as if you need to clear a stair step.

So what to do when your cousin comes to town with an exchange student teenager? Well, one snowy day we went to the Denver Art Museum in the morning and then for a walk through the Civic Center and around downtown, and had a big lunch at the Celtic Tavern. Pascal really liked the blue bear peering into the Denver Convention Center, also one of my favorite pieces of public art in ...

I could leave the class and prevent any further damage to my already wounded belief in God but this would completely botch my ultimate goal of finding what I believe to be absolute truth in this world. Ironically, I was using my own form of the scientific method to determine my stance on religion – eliminate all other hypotheses before making your own.
... the cool dude, looked after the boys and Erick from Costa Rica guided the ladies. Both proved to be excellent rafters and provided plenty of excitement during the 1.5 hour trip. Everyone put their hands on hearts as we passed the spot where Frank fell out on a previous trip. Mind you, the creek was graded two on our trip, but a raging four when Frank took it on! We drove back past Red Rocks ...
