... was really cool because it was something we had never done, but after a while we got too cold and had to go home. We drove back home and Donovan and Kinsey built Legos while I did some coloring.

We came back and had some lunch and a babysitter came to watch us while Mum, Dad, Chris and Gail went on a Brewery tour. We just hung out for a while until all the parents came back.

Traveling through Iowa on the way back to Colorado, I marveled at the sight of all the windmills, and felt a sense of pride that there were those individuals in our country who pushed for this form of clean energy that is also presented in such an artful way amongst the hills and valleys of that state.
Heading for Colorado across the endless highways ...

Pat had free passes and memberships to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science so we took Zach there around 10am and all I can say is WOW it has to be one of the best science museums in the world! We were there almost the entire day and we all loved it.
Zach was instantly drawn to their Space Odyssey wing where they had a person dressed in a full astronaut ...

Woke the next morning and got the hell out of town by 7am. I watched the sun come up behind me, leaving Nevada in my rear view window, and pushed my last five hours west toward my new home. I was in California within 30 minutes and again, it felt right.

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.
