There's something incredibly symbolic and cathartic at the same time, about driving such expanse of open road. No matter which direction you face, opportunity is always forward, worries are always behind, and strong-will outpaces stress every time.
The Romans would have been proud of the roads …
... descent to go, this involved going down the other side of the mountain on a trial, which soon turned into a mini flashflood coming down the path, it was awesome with thunder and lightning going at it.
Leah, Pat and myself went to a place called Red Rocks – sounds familiar right? Anyway, this was a little more ...
... and the whole cinema experience with popcorn and big screen and even managed to stay focussed on the film for the entire 1.5 hours.
That night we had dinner at the simple healthy and yummy Yuan Palace Mongolian BBQ restaurant, one I used to go to quiet regularly as a kid, with Pat and Dave and Denise’s daughter. Nothing had changed in 35 years, not even the plates, so it was like stepping back in time to 1982 - 1986 for ...
... lost it. On the Metro? The Bus? During the chaos at security? On the AeroTrain? No idea. I never heard anything fall to the ground. It’s baffling. But all I can do now is put it behind me and not let it ruin my trip. Hopefully I can find something similar tomorrow at DEN airport to purchase.
Anyway, moving along – we departed three minutes late at 10:22 p.m. and took off at 10:40. The time change to Denver is two hours backward, so it’s now 8:40 p.m. ...
... the water out of my socks! Thankfully the weather had improved dramatically by the weekend, so we dried out pretty quickly.
After Elitch's we went into town to 16th Street Mall, which is a really cool pedestrian-only street, with lots of shops and restaurants. Walking down the mall, we reached the Capitol Building, which Carolyn had said was covered in gold at the top. We'll have to take her word for it as it was under construction when we got there ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Teatro Denver
I stayed at Teatro last week on business/pleasure and I have to say it was one of the best places I have stayed in years!! Everything from the rooms to the staff, this hotel is worth the price. The afterhours front desk rep went out of her way on many nights to accomodate me with computer - printing problems. The concierge arranged to get my wife and I reservations at Aspen and Vail's top restaurants - last minute!!!
Only drawback - breakfast was a bit disappointing.
I went on this website to check the reviews for this hotel, and was surprised to find that some people didn't like it. I stayed at the Teatro for a few nights and had a wonderful time. The staff is very friendly and always willing to be of service. My friends call me high maintance, so that was perfect for me. Whenever I saw another guest in the lobby or joining me in the elevator friendly conversation or smiles were exchanged. The stay all in all was well worth the money. Not to mention the rooms are beautiful! I'll recommend staying at The Hotel Teatro to anyone I talk to.
The Hotel Teatro is by far the best hotel in Denver. The customer service is outstanding. The staff makes you feel at home and takes care of any special needs. THe rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are to die for. GREAT SHOWER! VERY ROMANTIC! I have always had a GREAT TIME at the Teatro.
The place has an attitude, and it's plenty pricey.
I have stayed at Teatro several times and can't praise it enough! The
atmosphere, the staff, and those bed linens!!!
Denver has grown up!
An extremely smart, stylish hotel with an extraordinarily friendly and helpful staff. Unintrusive, understated, relaxing: Comfortable beds, decent linens, and roomy bathtubs. I kept pinching myself, wondering when I should wake up and find myself in the Denver of former years (a sort of Dallas with mountains!). Room service was quick and food good.
My only complaint was that one morning the kitchen called and said there was no All Bran, but the fellow was so sweet and apologetic that I am convinced that had I complained, he would have taken the hotel's courtesy car and gone to the market to buy what I wanted. Thanks for a great stay. I plan to return.
I took my boyfriend for his birthday to this "supposively" great hotel. I confirmed twice that I would be able to check in 1 or 2 hours early since we were already in town, they said it was fine. I got there and the two very rude front desk women said that I couldn't check in, then they said that they are repairing my room. They offered to upgrade me to a suite then took it back and said instead for me to wait an hour for my room to be repaired. The room was nice I guess but the workers did not make the experience at all enjoyable. If I were you I would save my money for a place that has great service because I would have stayed at the Marriott instead of this hotel if I knew how rude the employees would be. I am very very disappointed.
We had the pleasure of visiting the Hotel Teatro last Valentines Day weekend. We stayed in a corner suite and found the recently renovated room luxurious. It was stocked with a bottle of Champagne on ice and a rose pedal turn-down, as per our request. After a soak in the Roman sized tub in the large marble bathroom, it was just a short walk downtown to the bars and nightlife. Truly a night to remember for what I would consider a reasonable price for an experience of that caliber. The least I can do is to write this review in hopes of sharing this quaint little Denver secret with others. Enjoy!
Best Hotel in Denver
This is the best hotel in Denver, without a doubt. The service is superb!!!
Prepare to be frustrated at the Teatro
Beautiful hotel - but don't expect to be treated like one of the beautiful people.....customer service was frustrating to say the least! Called the first time and got a quote on the rooms - when called back the rates were different. Had to talk to someone else to get my original quote. Specifically requested king size beds, but when I checked in - got "upgraded" to queen size beds. Took over an hour to get settled into the correct rooms and to get luggage FINALLY delivered to our rooms!! Didn't have extra keys to the rooms and were charged $24 for parking the car overnight. Price / value - definitely not worth it. Would not stay there again.
