... as the boys plopped their backpacks and shoes on the belt and walked through to the other side AWAY from me. They may as well have been in India surrounded by tigers as I fumbled to fold the stroller, put the car seat on the belt and dig out the boarding passes while holding the baby and her dolly, while screaming at them to “WAIT! And STAY RIGHT THERE!!”
In a panic, I tried to yank the baby out of the car seat without first unbuckling her (Mom of the Year), ...

I also met my second roommate, Rose, She comes from Mechelen, Belgium and is French speaking, although her Dutch/Flemish is pretty good too.

... it looks kind of like the tubes you float in when your in a pool except it is covered at the bottom) and give it to a guy that hooks it into this thing that pulls you up a the hill, kind of like a ski lift. When you get to the top you have to quickly unload and choose which hill you want to slide down. It slides down really fast and it was so fun, you could go down by yourself or there were double tubes where two people could go ...
... however, when it's snowing and 25 degrees, both riding outside and going to the gym to spend 4 hours riding on a spin bike are quite unappealing. I knew that if I was going to be comfortable on my bike, I needed to use MY bike, not a spin bike at the gym, and I feel that this has paid off. I might not be speedy on my bike, but I can say I do feel very comfortable on it, and I feel like I've come to know it quite well. Good thing, since I'm about to depend on it to take me 112 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Denver Marriott City Center
Great sleep and nice work out facilites
My teenage son, husband, and I stayed one night at the hotel to enjoy a night in the city. The Marriot was close to the Denver Center for the Performing Arts and other attractions. A light rail stop is across the street-perfect for a ride to the famous Buckhorn Exchange.
The beds were great! Bedding included comforters, layers of sheets, and a downlike mattress pad. No scratchy sheets or bedspreads.
We took advantage of the gym. There is an aerobic room with treadmills, ellipticals, bikes, and a rowing machine. Each machine had a TV and head phones. There are weight machines and free weights in a carpeted area next to the pool. No extra fees for working out. Even had free fruit!
went to denver for the weekend of 10-12 dec 05. this is a great hotel. definately first class all the way. rooms were somewhat small but for 2 people it is ok. the lobby you could eat off of. the only thing i did not care for was the valae parking. 20 bucks a day on the weekend. not really a problem until you check out on a sunday and have to wait 30 minutes for them to get your car. we just sat at the starbucks and waited. had a great time at the broncos game. downtown area is really nice and pretty with the christmas lights.
Great Location & Staff!
Great Staff sets this hotel apart! From the time of check in to check out the staff were everywhere and attentive to every need. The club lounge was well stocked, large, and a friendly place to be around. They have board games which is a nice change when you're on the road. The hotel is an easy walk to the 16th Street foot mall and only 10 minutes to the Convention Center. Only have valet parking at $24.
Nice Hotel & Location
Stayed at the Marriott for a conference. Had a great view from the 19th floor. Location is outstanding with only a few minute walk to the pedestrian mall, baseball stadium and convention center. Trolley stop right out front. Concierge was helpful, maid service decent. All parking is valet, but they always had the car ready when we called a few minutes ahead for it. Will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Denver.
Stayed there last night on the 14th floor. Everything fine ... friendly staff ... very nice room service deliveryperson ... no issues.
We are from a Denver suburb and my daughter and I decided to go towntown one weekend and do Christmas shopping and other fun downtown things. The hotel itself is beautiful and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our chief complaint is the rooms. It worked okay for the two of us, although it was tight, and would probably be perfect for a solo business traveler. But families beware: don't even try to get the entire family into one room. The beds were nearly touching the walls and there wasn't much room between all of the furniture. The bathrooms were ridicukous. You could only get to the toilet by closing the door and forget trying to pack two people into the bathroom to get ready, there was barely enough room for one person to stand in front of the mirror. Our room didn't have any spectacular views, we were on the top floor and all we could see was another highrise. From what I could tell, none of the rooms had views other than parking lots or other highrises. The hotel is in a prime location, though. It is right in the middle of all of the central business district, two blocks from the shopping/dining strip, and a short lightrail ride away from the performing arts complex. It is easy to get to from both of the main highways, I-70 and I-25, and probably only about 20 minutes from the airport. Valet parking is $20 a night on weekends, but I think it is more on weekdays. There isn't really anywhere else to park, though, so you're pretty much stuck with the valet guys. The fitness center and the pool were great- all of the exercise machines had their own TV and there was an attendant right there to assist you if you needed anything. We didn't eat at any of the restaurants in the hotel, but there is a Starbucks in the lobby which was great, although they are only open until 1:00 every day. Overall, it was a nice hotel and would be good for couples or business travelers, but I would caution families and groups of friends to get more than one room if they plan on staying there!
I was in Denver on a business trip July 2004 and stayed at this hotel.Arrived at the lobby around 1pm after a long exhausting flight and could not check in since the guests had not yet checked out.Never got a room until 3:30 pm and the front desk staff could say no more than the guests have not yet checked out, so I had to wait.This room was prepaid , and eventually when I did get my room it was not worth the money.There was nothing special in the room for the price paid.The exercise room was nice , location great but that was it.I was happy when my conference was over and I was able to leave.I just did not feel like my business was appreciated.
Our trip to Denver was a Christmas present for my three children. When I made the reservation, I told the reservationist that we had chosen to stay in Denver this holiday instead of going skiing, and that this was a gift for my three children ages 14, 14 and 10 - young adults. I requested a room on the highest level possible, and she told me that the views would be great facing any direction on the higher level. The kids were so excited. We checked in the day after Christmas and were given keys on the 4th floor. We told them that we were supposed to be on a high floor - we were then told by the staff that there were NO rooms on a higher floor - end of conversation. So to add insult to injury, while we are trying to decide if we even want to stay, the bellhop asks us which car is ours, and we point to our van, and without waiting for us, he runs outside, opens our trunk, and all our luggage other items fall out onto the ground. We run out, hoping that nothing is broken, and he starts throwing everything onto the cart, and he doesn't even apologize. Our kids are still sitting inside the car with horrified looks on their faces! We get to the room, the smallest room we've ever stayed in, and the bellhop continues to throw our luggage all around the room. I couldn't wait for him to leave, so I could check my suitcase to see if anything was broken. On the positive side, pool area/workout room is very nice, breakfast is excellent, but you have to wait in line for the made-to-order omelettes, and the line blocks all of the other hot chafing dish items. The bar area is very, very nice and there is a Starbucks on the premises - but they closed too early 1:00 p.m. on a Sunday in December??? We actually RAN OUT of toilet paper, and I called the front desk and they said they would bring it right up - they never came. I had to send my children downstairs to use the bathrooms in the pool area??? It is tastefully decorated, but the room could have been cleaner - there were hairs in the tub, and fingerprints on the glass table, etc. Coffee maker in the room, but NO cups, cream & sugar, etc. After the toilet paper issue, I didn't even bother calling the front desk to have coffee sent up. I had to hunt down a house keeping cart for coffee supplies. When housekeeping came and cleaned, AGAIN no coffee supplies. (they must keep the coffee supplies with the toilet paper or they are trying to save money) I had to go on three different floors this time to find a housekeeping cart to get our coffee supplies from the maid! We had a parking package rate, but when we received our bill, they charged us AGAIN for parking. They did apologize and tell us that their computer automatically charges for parking even if you get the parking package. So I'm wondering how many unsuspecting guests have been charged twice for parking and didn't realize it. Probably a great place to stay for a convention, but we got the feeling that our "family" wasn't really welcome at this Denver, Marriott. Next time, we'll stick to skiing!!!
Our first stay at this hotel was in November of 2002 , the staff was wonderful, the rooms were far better than we expected and the service we recieved while we were there was increddible. We have stayed there every time we've gone back to Denver. We would definately reccomend this hotel if you are just going for a weekend at six flags or romantic getaway, or even for a buissness trip. They have all the ammenities that you would look for in a hotel of it's class. The other thing that makes this hotel so appealing is that it is affordable too!! They also allow your pets along which is a very big plus since we own a dog and he travels with us everywhere. it is akso very kid friendly with an indoor pool sauna,hot tub and also has movie options!! So for anyone looking for a place that they just want to get away i would definately reccomend this hotel!!!!
Customer Friendly Marriott
I just returned from a convention at the Marriott. The hotel could not have been more accommodating. The restaurant offers a great breakfast buffet (and other meals); the bar has lots of seating and prompt, friendly service; and the entire staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and clean and well serviced. This is a hotel that does everything to please its customers. And for our convention (500 people) the facilities were outstanding. Our group has an annual convention, each year in a different city, and this hotel was truly one of the best we have experienced.
