... with a store worker. He apparently took off into an apartment complex, one that is well known for gangbangers and drug users. We sat at the back of the complex to see if he would come out, but unfortunately he was not found. However, inside the complex some police found someone they had been looking for, so we went around and inside to provide some support. At this point there was around 6 cops here, a nice little force. I believe someone had been hit ...
... the airport right on time and learned that our flight would be delayed by 2 hours!!! Aggghhh! We were having flashbacks to Atlanta. We passed the time and the kids did amazingly well. This time it turned out to be a four hour wait. Maybe flying isn't such a good idea for the Lane family.
Thankfully, we made it safely to Denver. I believe that I went through Denver on ...
... Economy Class is oversold by one, for a total of two seats open on the plane. I’m still third on the SA list, but the only standby who’s checked in so far. I’m also the only person checked in so far on the upgrade list. The seat map shows four BF seats open: 1K, 3L, 4L, and 5B. Fingers crossed one of them has my name on it!
If not, I’ll overnight at DEN again and try for Wednesday’s flight, which is currently showing 15 BF seats open and I’d be #8.

We picked up a bag of trash, a small bag - was pretty clean at this spot. Of course, Erwin took all the credit in the photo below - as usual....even tho he has no thumbs....making it impossible ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Jet Hotel Denver
I just read another review here regarding confusion with booking a room and connections with Expedia, but it sounds like they're just coming up with any excuse. In my case, I had booked online VIA THEIR OWN WEBSITE and they still didn't have record of my booking when I arrived (thankfully, I had arrived with a printout of my reservation). Then they had the nerve to quote me a higher price, using the excuse that the rate on the website was out of date.
I was planning a trip to Denver from Phoenix to enjoy St. Patricks day with some friends there. I had made reservations five weeks ahead of time in order to ensure my trip ran smoothly. Upon arrival, the front desk informed me that my reservation didn't exist and I wasn't in the system as ever having called. Then, the room I requested had already been rented to someone else. They offered me two rooms for the night, and since I was traveling alone I thought this was ridiculous. I get up to the room they gave me and they offered me a bottle of champagne; nice touch if my inconvenience was worth $10. They made multiple mistakes when it came time to charge my credit card, a mistake of over $200, so I was forced to complain once again. The staff was clueless and seemed to be "checked out" most of the time. The rooms were advertised as contemporary, maybe by K-Marts standards or IKEA at best! MY ADVICE to others thinking of staying here: Spend the extra $35-$50 and stay at the Hyatt near the convention center. The Hyatt is expecting visitors, has an adequate reservation system and is much more contemporary in design. Please think twice before staying at this dump!
We booked a 2 night stay at the Hotel Luna through their website 5 months in advance. It took 15mn for someone to show up at the front desk and he looked like he didn't want to be there.
We stayed here on a Saturday night in September, the night of our wedding. We reserved the largest suite at the Luna Hotel because we had plans to get together with out-of-town friends that evening, since we weren't leaving for our honeymoon until a few days later. It was a nice suite for all of us to hang out in and have some drinks before we went to dinner, so it served it's purpose. And the location is ideal as we were able to walk everywhere.
Good option for your LoDo evening out
Our room was very clean and stylish. The staff was very low key and helpful. It was Saturday night and there was noise from the street and even from the hotel's bar, so keep that in mind if that might bother you. We didn't mind. This place a good value if you're looking for an upscale place to crash after a night out.
I was a little hesitant about staying here reading some of the reviews, however, a friend of mine mentioned she always wanted to stay at the Luna so I thought I would try it out. My husband I arrived on a Friday and checked right in. We thought the Flow Lounge was ultra hip and we wondered if we would even fit in with the crowd later on. Our room was perfect, especially the bed. Everything worked in the room, and our view was right in front of the hotel which was nice to people watch. Saturday morning we woke up and called down to get the complimentary breakfast brought up and that was wonderful. The hotel was in a great location to catch the market street shuttle to the Bronco game. After the Bronco game, we came back and hit the lounge for some dessert fondue! Yum. The one minor issue was that Saturday night there was a party going on in the bar and our room was directly above it so we could hear everything until about 2:00 am. It wasn't that big of a deal for us, and actually was entertaining sometimes.
Don't waste your time
I had high hopes but I couldn't take a shower in the morning as something was wrong with the water. Still awaiting reply from the management after three letters.
My boyfriend and I stayed one Sunday night at Hotel Luna in October 2004. I hate to admit it, but I made the reservation for Hotel Luna based upon a recommendation from Elle Magazine. I was expecting a hip, fun boutique hotel. What I received was a pretentious lobby, filthy rooms and non-existent service.
Loved the Luna
I have stayed at Hotel Luna several times and will stay again. The bed is wonderful, the hotel is pristine and the staff is very gracious. The selection in the mini bar is great (no alcohol...if you want a drink they'll bring it to your room). The crepes are wonderful, too. The cost is comparable to other hotels in the area.
Unfortunately the cost of the one-night stay did not live up to the rave of this hotel. First one must know that the hotel was quickly remodeled into a chic, ultra mo-dern, "boutique" style hotel. I wouldn't call this a boutique hotel at all. It sure had some neat looking Ikea furnishings, but did not have the impressive woodwork or finishing touches that make it a one of a kind place. There were plenty of over-looked details. Sure our room provided us with a uniquely styled "artisian" water bottle... only to find the seal cracked and the water partiallly used. (Which would point fingers at us to pay for the goods). All the rooms provide mini bars of sorts... for example a cd mini bar... meaning, you have to break the seal of a cd in order to hear it, and then you must pay for it. There was also a Dean and Deluca snack mini bar... any missing brushed steal tins the next morning upon check-out get charged a pretty price. I should also mention the shabby-chic linens on the bed-- holes in the shams, and marker on the sheets -- and the poor workmanship installing many of the room's fixtures. The toliet paper dispenser, for example, literally dangled from the wall... everytime paper was drawn from it, the roll fell to the ground. This was all-inclusive in one of the Penthouse suites. (After upgrade).Perhaps this place might look very cool, and you might actually feel "important" upon entering the property... but look beneath the surface just a tad, and you will quickly realize the money you have spent is not quite worth the shabby nouveau.The overall service was excellent though-- in addressing the very things they should not have looked-over. I should also mention that the crÃ©pes for breakfast were wonderous.I would strongly urge you to look further than the Luna Hotel, unless you wish to be bothered by the very things that you hoped would be perfect upon arrival.
