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
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
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!!!!
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.
First, the location is perfect. One block from the 16th street mall that has free buses up and down the mall. My conference was at the Adams Mark and the walk took about 3 min.
The staff was very courteous and friendly. They were nice at check-in, check-out, said hi whenever I walked in and out, got me a razor and shaving cream, and stored my bags when I checked out.
The room was very clean and, although a little small, had everything I needed: Good shower, iron and ironing board, soft chair with ottoman, desk to work at, TV, etc. I had a view of the State Capital as well.
This hotel is unbelievable for the price/location/value. If you want a 5star hotel, then don't stay there. However, I saw NOTHING to complain about the 3 days I was there.
I would stay here again
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 :-)
Honestly, though, the hotel was great. Location was perfect--a short block away from the 16th Street Mall (right at the Denver Pavilion) and two blocks from the convention center. We didn't take out the car all weekend. Oh, the hotel does charge a hefty $16 per night for parking--ouch.
About the hotel itself--rooms are average size. There was ample room for two beds, two chairs and a small round table. Rooms have obviously been updated recently and to my critical eye looked to be spotless. Towels and washcloths were thick, large and new. The bathroom vanity was fairly small but the lighting was great, which counts big with me.
There is wireless Internet in each room--nice~
There is a homeless man who seems to sleep each night on the sidewalk across the street from the hotel. Since this is the downtown area of a large city, I wasn't shocked by this--it's not Disneyland, after all.
I didn't notice that the elevators were particularly slow--there are four of them and I would say we never had to wait more than a minute for one.
I would have no problem staying here again--no complaints.
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
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
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.
Good location central to downtwon.
Staff courteous and professional. Recommended.
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.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to Denver!
Hospitality at its best
The room was very clean...all hotel staff was very friendly...Concierge gave excellent recomendations of local atractions.

... for just ten minutes, we saw the newborn baby elk! We watched for a long time as the mother licked and nuzzled her new baby. Just fifteen minutes after it was born, the little baby stood up, and began trying to take it's first steps. The first several times it wobbled and then fell over, but then finally it took it's first wobbly steps! It was so adorable. After watching a while longer, we went into the gift ...
