... that is about 40 miles of Denver. Central City also features a gambling casino district called Blackhawk. In Blackhawk, not only did we donate a few dollars but it was also where Ed was escorted out of the casino. Colorado state law proscribes a casino may serve no more than one alcoholic beverage in any 30-minute period. When Ed ordered a shot of Jack Daniels and a beer, and was advised of the law by the bartender, he made certain everyone in the ...

So when I found out that Blue Moon and Killians is made by Coors, I was all for going over to Golden for a tour of the Coors brewery. I had read all about it online and when I mentioned it to my Aunt she told that they used to have unlimited tastings but that it was much scaled back now a days. Bummer ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Denver Downtown
We stayed at the Ramada in late August 2005 for two nights, and that was plenty.
My wife and I spent a week in July at the Ramada Denver downtown and it was very pleasant. Our room was comfortable with a King size bed, a table and two chairs, dressing table and closet outside the bathroom, and a small but clean bathroom.
Management made our trip as smooth as glass
Since we were unfamilar with Denver, the courtesy shutle was incredibly convenient. The management ensured we that we had transportation right when we needed it. Free high-speed internet was a nice touch. We also enjoyed a reduced rate becaue we were only staying a few hours.
I stayed here in February 2005. I chose it because of the price and the location. It's about a mile from the Capitol and is cheaper than anything else in the area. Granted, like the others say, the neighborhood can be a bit sketchy (I was panhandled upon walking 2 blocks west). It has a post office, liquor store, and bodega across the street. The Mexican Restaurant kitchen was closed for repairs when I was there, but the bar was open. The restaurant staff was friendly. The room and the hotel were very clean. There were kids playing in the hot tub, but I didn't investigate its cleanliness myself. Hotel staff was courteous and professional. Bottom line: if you're looking for a cheap but clean hotel in downtown Denver and don't mind an occasional panhandler, don't hesitate to stay here.
Definitely not the hotel of choice for condescending middle-class yuppie snobs with the luxury SUV, 2.5 kids and 1.5 dogs who are frustrated because they can't afford the $175 a night Adam's Mark a mile away.
Area is sketchy but the hotel is great
Driving to the hotel I got a bit nervous about the location. It's in a sketchy area about 1 mile away from the better areas of downtown. When I spoke to the staff, I was initially unimpressed by their colloquial manner towards me, the guest. As the stay went on, I came to appreciate their friendly demeanor and found them to be very competent from the front desk to the shuttle drivers. The shuttle to downtown, runs every hour and will work with you if you miss the time or pickup. If I were to stay in Denver again, I would choose this hotel over others in the downtown that are twice the price. If cost were not an issue, I would choose one of the hotels closer to the 16th st mall.
Good Value Hotel
Picked this hotel because of the price - relatively cheap. When I arrived I realised why - seedy area indeed. However I can't fault the hotel. The rooms are large clean and with very good amenities. The Mexican restaurant is very good - recommend the breakfast. The Hawalian guy in the bar is very friendly - say hello to him. The pool is a disappointment - small and unclean looking although the sun terrace is nice. If you want a good value hotel within walking distance of the main centre then stay here. But luxury it isn't.
Well, aberrant billing problems aside, the hotel is an fine basic choice for staying in Denver. Its location, simplicity and price are strong selling points, but the decor, pool, and restaurant are useless.If you've got a rental car the large free parking lot is pretty convenient--esp if you don't want to bother with expensive and annoying valets at downtown hotels. The colfax location is central but just a little seedy--if you appreciate classic downtown diners, country-western gay bars, and funky record stores, this isn't bad at all. The best part was feeling like I could come and go as i pleased, without calling for the car, or walking through a busy lobby scene.However, the country western decor is ridiculous and overwhelming. The pool is more like a bathtub, completely taken over by 3 or 4 splashing kids the whole time i was there. The rooms are kind of bland, almost dingy. But, once again, for $70/night, you're doing okay.No staff or billing problems for me, but my sympathies to anyone who has to deal with crap like that.
Think twice... three... four times before staying at the Downtown Denver Ramada. Perhaps, like me, you might get billed twice for your stay and have to spend hours of your life trying to clear the matter up with a franchise who has no interest in your fate or your money.
