... so that we could fly home after 11:00 am on the 15th with Derek.) During the flight they only gave us two small beverages and no snacks. I watched the movie "42" about Jackie Robinson. It helped the time go really fast. Larry read Newsweek on his iPad. I tried to do the crossword in the Flight Magazine and got most of it. It was a tough one. We arrived in Denver at 4:15 a half an hour early. We had ...
... Black Crown is a really cool bar in South Denver. It is an old Victorian style house that is an antique mall and piano bar combined. We sat on the patio and relaxed for a couple hours.
We went back to Keith and Kevin's to freshen up and continue Happy Hour. We had a 7pm reservation at Le Central, a French restaurant within walking distance of the house. On the way Lesley and I had to stop and use the toilet. Very fortunately for us we ...

Coeur d'Alene is a fabulous Ironman course. I have not seen current weather, so be sure to check this the week before. It can be great weather or very hot. Although this is your first Ironman, you have put in a lot of time to "just finish." You have the endurance to complete this. Go out, ...
Well this is going to be more than the day before.
I left Keene on Tuesday and flew to Denver. I've been here for a few days as we make final preparation for our drive to Denali National Park in Alaska.

... the car wash to get the bugs off its face. It continues to attract attention, whether I’m just driving up (cameras come out and we swap photos beside it) or whether I’m inside my room just looking out the window. Everybody loves the map. Perhaps it inspires wanderlust. For sure folks like to brag about where they live, and invite me to visit their part of the US of A. What a country, indeed.

Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Denver Hotel
Don't waste your money.
A tired, worn convention and business hotel. The beds are as worn out as the rest of the hotel. Breakfast was overpriced and cold. A turnstyle operation.
This hotel is an excellent value. We got a rate of $55.00 per night at Marriott.
While better than most of the other properties in the Stapleton area, this hotel has a lot of room for improvement.
A couple friends and I stayed here the last weekend of October, 2004. I heavily researched hotels in Denver and this was the one I settled on. I was very pleased indeed! Not only did we get a great deal but the amenities and accomodations were terrific. The atrium was exquisite and roomy. The staff was courteous and helpful. Kudos to the atrium restaurant-the breakfast buffet was fabulous; so much food and quite tasty! Even our rooms were nice, kept very tidy by the good people of housekeeping. We had a view of Wal-Mart across the street but it could have been worse. In other reviews there is some hubbub about the Renaissance's location. My advice: if you're wanting to stay on Park Avenue then go to New York. This area used to be the Stapleton Airport. It is being refurbished slowly, Denver has been putting in restaurants and shopping centers. I saw no riff raff and we were there 3 1/2 days! I-70 is adjacent and access to Denver Intl' as well as the rest of the city is fantastic. The Renaissance offers free shuttles to downtown as well as Denver Intl!I have stayed in many hotels but by and large the Renaissance Denver is one of the better places I have stayed. You have to go to Las Vegas to get a comparable value and accomodation. Just don't ask the Concierge/Doorman for cookies late at night-he'll tell you. "that's the Doubletree!" I give the Renaissance Denver a wholehearted thumbs up.
Don't stay here
Reserved club room on 10/2003, when checking in they gave me room w/king bed when I reserved 2 queens. Had to go to front desk where they were very rude and told me to wait for a while to see if any rooms had 2 queens..said my reservation wasn't guaranteed..it was since I reserved w/credit card. Told me no room was guaranteed. I fought with them till I got room w/2 queen beds on 8th floor..w/club floor amenities. Took almost 2 hrs to check in. Last day of stay I asked for wakeup call that never came..almost missed flight home. Otherwise, rest of staff excluding front desk were nice enough. Hotel room ok, overlooked fire station and train tracks. Not the best area in town to stay. Won't stay here again.
This hotel is not in the ghetto. There is a brand new shopping center, and restaurants across from the hotel. The room was in OK shape. You could tell that it was a few years old. Overall, I felt that this hotel was a good value. I paid $62.00 for a room with two beds. We were on the 12th floor, and had a great view of downtown and the mountains. This worked out great becuase we stayed there on the 4th of July, and we were able to sit on the balcony and watch fireworks from all over the Denver area. I would definetly recommend this hotel, if you get a good rate.
Great hotel, great location ...
Very classy hotel, great location for the airport and downtown. Large clean rooms, lovely public areas and an attached multi storey car park. Fantastic breakfast buffet. You can't judge a hotel by the streets you have to drive through to get to there!
Great for reunion groups!!
I selected this hotel for a military reunion that will be held in October 2004. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is friendly and professional--the value they offered my group told me they really wanted our business. The neighborhood is not bad at all--there's a fire station and park a block away. Ask for a room on the west side for a nice view of downtown and the Front Range. Free trasportation to and from the airport as well as to downtown is a huge benefit.
You can almost never go wrong with Renaissance by Marriott. This certainly applies with the Denver Renaissance. The room was large and very comfortable. The amenities always give me an opportunity to try out Bath and Body Works products. The front desk staff were helpful each time they had to give me directions to get to another location.
There's a reason you can get rooms here for $79. DOn't walk outside.
The neighborhood was horrendous. Hey, I like watching a drug bust as much as the next guy. But I prefer when its on TV and not on the drive home from downtown.
The bar was ok. A nice place for us to hang out after the drive home through some really choice sections of Denver.
