Onze rondreis is voorbij. Vandaag gaan we op weg naar Carlo, Deby en de kids voor een familiebezoek. We staan wat later op, scoren een ontbijtje aan de overkant zoals gisteren en om 12:00 staat de hotel taxi klaar om ons naar het vliegveld te brengen. We zijn er met een drie kwartier. Uit de taxi en direct daar de koffers inchecken, handig! Binnen …
Wakker geworden in Denver. Het is half tien en we hebben lekker uitgeslapen vandaag. Na eerst heel hard "lang zal hij leven" te hebben gezongen toch maar opgestaan. Geen ontbijt in dit megahote,l maar verderop in de straat bij een lokaal cafeetje heerlijk ontbeten. Daarna hebben we de bus genomen naar een echte mall, de Cherry Creek Mall, een klein …
We started our sightseeing in Downtown Denver at lunchtime. We grabbed some very yummy BLTs from The Market on Larimer Street and enjoyed them in their outside dining area. We then checked into a fun boutiquey type hotel named The Curtis. Each floor of the hotel has a theme so it can be a little fun to make a stop at each floor on the elevator to …
We headed out of Vail around 9 am and made the 1.5 hour drive to Golden, Colorado where we would be doing the Coors Brewery Tour. The tour was better then I had expected it to be considering it was a FREE tour. They had a shuttle van that picked you up from the parking
lot and then they drove you around the downtown area of Golden and gave you …
I love the feeling of arriving in Denver. I was the first one up on the bus, like a kid on C'mas! Even sat in the seat up by the driver so I could enjoy pulling into downtown. It was a good day off (sort of - they're never truly off on the road!). I enjoyed Chipotle and Starbucks with Alicia, then met up with Anna for a drink before we met up at …

Centraal in Downtown Denver gelegen hotel met 16 verdiepingen. Goede uitvalsbasis om Denver te verkennen. Mooie grote kamers met dubbel 2-persoonsbed en mooie badkamer.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Curtis Denver
So nice, just across the street from the Buell Theatre. A Perfect location for the performance center. The room and bed were fairly comfortable, clean and new. We stayed in a room with an adjoining room door. We did not notice until morning that there was a 1.5 inch crack under the connecting doors. Otherwise our discussion about the night's performance would have been in whispers to spare our next door neighbors. Not to mention a pillow against the door crack. The next morning the alarm went off at 5:30 AM. A bit peeved as we did not set the alarm, I got up to shut it off and found that it was not in our room but next door! Sounded like it was in our room.
The Curtis recently opened its doors as a funky little boutique hotel in downtown Denver, directly across from the Performing Arts Center, The location is good for any conventioneers, etc. Each floor has a different theme, for instance "chick flicks," "sci fi," and of course, the 13th floor is horror. The theme mainly consists of some artwork and movie posters on the shared hallway walls, but it still works okay.
Lovin The Curtis
Spent one night at the Curtis on January 25 and loved it. This hotel has character - movie and TV characters that is - everywhere. Step into the lobby and you'll hear movie soundtracks, billboard posters line the walls and instead of boring biscuits or mints, they leave candy on your pillow.
The breakfast room wasn't finished when we stayed there, but we had a good selection of pastries and fruit - served not on platters but on Monopoly boards - these people have thought of everything!
Our only gripe was that the double glazing didn't seem up to much so there was traffic noise and train horns all night which didn't help us get over our jet lag.
Otherwise though, snap up this bargain before the building work is finished and they whack up their rates.
I have stayed in many hotel rooms that are *supposed* to be nice. You know, the Hyatts and the Marriotts. In general, my feeling is that they always come up a bit short. It wasn't until I stayed at The Curtis this past weekend (Feb 16) that I realized what has been missing all along. Creativity. That's all it really takes to make a hotel room your second home, even for one night. You can have all the marble and granite you want, but without a little creativity thrown in there, the place is just stoic.
I booked two nights at the Curtis with a bit of trepidation - it had just opened a few weeks earlier and I wondered if the hotel would still be working its kinks out. I need not have worried. Granted, it will be an even better place to stay after it is fully completed, with a restaurant, pool, health club, etc. But if you want a nice, convenient place to stay with comfortable beds, friendly, helpful staff and a perfect location in Downtown Denver, this is the place!
GREAT experience for the price!!
Just got home from a 4 day stay at The Curtis. Great location downtown, easy walk to everything, we walked to the Pepsi center every day. Brew pubs, dancing, shopping, museums; you name it, it's there. We called direct to book and told them we found a quote of $108 online, they looked it up and matched that price. Some ammenities are not yet open as the property is being renovated, so no pool or restaurant yet. The beds are fabulous, great bathrooms (we had a shower, no tub) and amazing pillows/comforters. Best sleep we've had away from home in a long time.
I accidently stumbled upon this hotel while I was looking for an affordable place to stay in downtown Denver. The introductory rights are great right now (cheaper than most all hotels downtown). I was told upon checkout that rates would go up once the hotel has it's "grand opening" in March. I still highly recommend this hotel! I have stayed at many hotels and this one had pretty much everything I needed. The size of the room and the decor where perfect. Everything looked new and modern and the bed was very comfortable. My boyfriend and I stayed here over the weekend and thought the location was great for going out in Downtown Denver. The staff was friendly and the continental breakfast in the morning hit the spot. If you want a fun, boutique type hotel to stay in while in downtown Denver, I highly recommend the Curtis.
Upon arrival it seemed a bit quiet but it was too my advantage, the check in staff came to personally know me and recognized me on my trip down from the room. The rooms were very nice for the price, brand new everything! The bathroom was very elegant and pleasing but lacked a towel rack. As for the themed floors, which drew me to this hotel were a bit disappointing, consisting of framed art. The concept was good as my guest began to think up improvements. Although I did not announce it, my stay was in celebration for my birthday and I was to entertain some friends later. I brought my recently aquired Wii to the room but could not hook it up to the TV. A quick call to the front and the maintenence guy was to my room with and ADDITIONAL television to hook up my Wii. I can tell the hotel still has alot of growth to do still but it seems to be off to a good start. Its location to downtown hotspots is a plus, lodo a few blocks away and the Denver Center for Performing arts literally in its backyard. I can tell that this hotel may be a bit quiet but should take off by grand opening in March.
We stayed at the newly renovated Curtis hotel in mid-January. The portions of the hotel that are complete looked very nice, done in the boutique hotel-style that's become popular in recent years (kitchy decorations in the lobby, an ipod speaker/clock radio in the room, bright colors, mod designs, etc.). While some of the floors were still under construction we didn't hear much in the way of noise, save for some hammering on the last morning of our three-day visit. The renovation also seems to have added size to the bathrooms, which reviewers of the old hotel described as tiny. We got a room with a shower-only bathroom (i.e., just no tub) and weren't expecting much, but it turned out to be rather large. The room itself had a king bed, desk, dresser/closet, dresser, flat screen tv and a chair with ottoman.
