Another mammoth drive... 450 miles ON THE SAME ROAD IN ONE DAY! The drive through Utah was beautiful - again another different landscape. However, got stopped by two different cops in the first two hours of leaving Arizona. The first time because I didn't signal long enough before changing lanes on the highway, the second for... and wait for it... …

... walked the entire length of downtown, had coffee in a fun independent bookstore, and then dinner at a Mongolian grill type restaurant--I'm learning to enjoy eating out alone! It's part of my growth process!

Also found a journal with the Eiffel Tower on the front--perfect for my upcoming trip to Paris!

... there. Very tasty!

We leave and head over to Nathans apartment, partly to put mine and Erins clothes in the dryer, but also to pick a few things up for a trip to the mountains. At Nathans place, which is full of amusing artwork, posters, signs etc, I meet Nathans room mate Josh, a big tall lanky guy with a great sense of humour. We hang there a while, put back on our dry clothes and set off for a little trip to the mountains.

    A tad expensive for some things

    There were no bedbugs. Concierge service was awesome. They have a gym and a pool. Bed was comfortable. Restaurant was expensive and when I was looking at eating there, no one was around to seat me. On Demand movies were really expensive. Parking was $20/day.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Hotel Denver

    Great location!

    from

    Had attended a recent conference held at the Colorado Convention Centre. The Holiday Inn was on the list of conference hotels. Glad I chose it! Convenient location to the Centre as well as to the 16th Street Mall. Hotel reception was helpful and friendly, room was adequate.

    Great location, pleasant hotel

    from

    Spent 4 nights here and had a great stay, location was perfect especially as we had no car, the hotel is on the Blue Van airport shuttle route.

    Room was a good size, clean, nice strong shower, comfortable beds and had a great view of Downtown and Invesco field.

    Had breakfast once at the hotel, very nice but plenty of other inexpensive breakfast opportunities nearby. Elevators ran ok even when there was a large tour group checking out, staff were courteous.

    Would definately stay here again, as price is very good for Downtown Denver.

    Yes! Amazing deal in downtown Denver!!!!

    from

    I admit, I was scared to stay here based on a couple of reviews on this site, but it was my only option financially, and it was such a great stay that I had to comment in the hotel's defense.

    I would stay here again

    from

    We just got back from a weekend in Denver and stayed at the downtown Holiday Inn. We were there for my daughter's dance competition at the nearby convention center and were booked into the hotel as a group by her dance instructor. After reading reviews on this site and others, I was leery about staying here--plus, I'll admit it. I'm a hotel snob :-)

    Flee!

    from

    Was it the elevators that took forever? No. Was it the homeless man sleeping on the sidewalk? No. Was it the fear for my life that I had walking up the street to the trolly? No. Was it the human feces that had somehow been dry cleaned and laundered into the hand towel, and that I unbeknownst used to wipe shaving cream off my face? Yes. This hotel puts the "D" in Dump.

    Inflexible and unfair

    from

    I booked at the Holiday Inn on August 25 for a conference in mid October (well before the deadline date). A week before the conference I was called by the Holiday Inn and informed that there had been a problem with their booking system and I had to be moved to a location about 25 minutes from the conference site. The reason I was selected was because I had booked directly with the hotel (I don't give my card out using online systems) rather then booking using the conference website. I would have thought a fairer option would have been last in, first out but the reservations manager offered no flexibility. I was offered a free night at another Holiday Inn next to a freeway. This was of no benefit to me as my travel is covered by my employer and no other compensation was offered. In the end I calculated that I lost at least 4 hours of my personal time shuttling to and from the conference site from my alternative hotel - and countless networking opportunities. My compensation from Holiday Inn - a bag of pretzels and a bag of dried fruit. Thank you!

    Just an average hotel

    from

    Recently stayed at the downtown Holiday Inn. Good location, clean, decent size rooms. Complaints: room was entirely too hot the whole time we were there even with the air conditioner on. The AC is fairly noisy and made it hard to sleep at night. Bathroom very small with almost no counter space. Elevators are slow. Parking garage is really goofy -- you need a room key to get in and OUT! I've been in LOTS of parking garages and have never had to use a room key to get out of the garage. That became a problem as one family member went to drive down and pick us up and had no room key to get out of the garage. The courtesy phone was not working and people were backing up and honking behind him. Luckily one of the drivers behind yelled to come back and use his card to get out. What a fiasco! Had the fire alarm go off at 1 am and no one knew why. Other than that it's a pretty typical Holiday Inn. Probably would not return.

    No Problems

    Good location central to downtwon.

    Staff courteous and professional. Recommended.

    Great Hotel!

    from

    This hotel was perfect for my trip to Denver. It was an overflow hotel for the conference I was attending at the Adam's Mark and I am so glad I picked this one! GREAT location - one block from Denver Pavilions and the 16th Street Mall. Central location to all of Downtown Denver via mass transit(Pepsi Center, State Capitol, Colorado Convention Center, etc.). The hotel front desk staff was helpful, friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. I would definitely try the breakfast buffet at the Dusty Rose Restaurant. The service was much better and it was less expensive and much better tasting than the one at the Adam's Mark. The maids did a great job with the room, the room is a nice size, and the shower was wonderful (great water pressure and temperature). FYI parking is $16.00 per day in the hotel garage.

    Hospitality at its best

    from

    The room was very clean...all hotel staff was very friendly...Concierge gave excellent recomendations of local atractions.
