Loews Denver Hotel

I woke up this morning with an aching body and a stiff neck. Yesterday's snowboarding adventure left me with many bruises, but many wonderful memories also. I hope that once in Idaho I can convince some classmates to try snowboarding again with me, only this time I will surely invest in a lesson. Last night I stayed with my aunt in Denver. We went …

Darryl had 16 pounds on the Multi currency card, so didn't want to waste it, so found an ATM and took out 10 and then bought a Toblerrone for 5.50, so pretty much wiped it out. We also converted what pounds we had left into US dollars.
The flight to Frankfurt was only an hour and a bit flight ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Loews Denver Hotel
Comfortable and nice hotel
Previous reviews about location are accurate, located in kind of an isolated area, but the Cherry Creek Shopping area is close. You can't walk to it, but the shuttle was easy and had me there in 5 minutes. The outside is nothing fancy, but once you enter the lobby, the hotel takes on a different feel, more elegant than expected. The room was very comfortable, the east facing room view was boring (actually looked out over a parking lot and some unattractive apartment units). Ate lunch in the T-bar, service was excellent. Very friendly staff everywhere we went.
Only hotel in area that seemed better was the JW Marriott, adjoining Cherry Creek Mall, but the price at the Loews was much better ($116 compared to $230). Would stay here again.
My family and I just returned from a four-night stay at the Loews and whiile I cannot recommend it to everyone, it will certainly fit most people's needs.
I heard about tripadviser.com after booking a two night stay at the Loews, and I was concerned after reading some of the lackluster reviews for this hotel. It turns out that my concerns were completely unwarranted. That isn't to say everything was perfect, it was not, but the staff went to great lengths to address every concern we had. The staff was top notch, dealing with my hard to please wife when someone had obviously smoked in one of the non-smoking rooms, putting us into a different room immediately. The service was great, the staff friendly and the room was the best we stayed in the entire 10 day trip. Well lit, but really dark for sleeping, choice of different pillows, very clean, very quiet and the hotel was more than accomodating to our small dog as well. I absolutely recommend this hotel, and you should go out of your way to stay here if you have a pet.
Very good overall experience
We stayed there because of its pet friendly policy, and the hotel staff could not have been more friendly or accomodating.
The room was well above average, and a very good price. The food was outstanding with extremely competent staff.
Will definitely make this a regular stop when in Denver, and has the advantage of world class shopping at Cherry Creek, a short distance away.
I'm a Loews First member (silver level), and I love staying at Loews' properties. But, the Denver property is nothing to write home about.
Certainly not a 4 star hotel
The only worthwhile feature of this hotel is its restaurant. Service was slow, not very friendly and staff gives the impression that guests are a bothersome distraction. How this hotel rates Mobil 4 stars is beyond me.
Not What I Expected
I stayed at the Loews Denver in November 2003. I was disappointed when I entered my room. I had expected higher quality linens. I was also disappointed in the service (for a 4-star). I wanted to see a movie and was told they were out of newspapers. I asked them if they could find the times for me and they gave me a phone number to call myself. I thought the restuarant and valet were excellent. I think you could stay in a lower-rated and lower-priced hotel and get better service.
Pet owners, you will love this place.
We stayed in Loews in December of 03 with our little dog for one day. I think it is one of the most dog friendly place I have stayed in. Our little dog got a little welcome bag which was very cute. The staff were very friendly. We left our dog in the room to go out for dinner. We informed the staff about this and they assured us that they will check up on her once in a while. When we returned our dog was in the reception area enjoying all the attention. They brought her down because she was making noises in the room. I thought it was very nice of them to do that given that they had our cell to call in case of any problems. Overall all of us enjoyed our stay well in the hotel.
Decent hotel, but nothing to rave about
This hotel provided adequate service. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. It's about a 5 to 10 minute drive to the Cherry Creek shopping district. Other than that, the area is nothing special. Lower downtown Denver (Lodo) is probably a 20-30 minute drive.
We visited this hotel in August of this year and were very impressed with the restaurant.
The food was so outstanding that I would visit Denver again only to eat at this establishment.
