... kept us amused (and extremely informed) for the next hour as we toured the behind the scenes of the distillery. Upon entering we immediately recognized the smell of mash from Jae's moonshine efforts - that is not a smell you easily forget....ever.. Jae looked like a kid on Xmas morning - soaking up the information and experience We ended our tour with a gratis tasting - Jae got mine, with no complaints :)
... In the midst of all of these little cosmic synchronicities, it occurred to me that I was about to leave the only place I've ever called home for the next 5 months. I think that realization is supposed to carry some significant meaning, but I have yet to figure out what it is. Perhaps it will be a new found appreciation for the magnetic energy of Denver and the beautiful, homey feel of Golden. Or, maybe I will come to see that "home" is less of a ...

Then we drove to a park with lots of Christmas lights and walked around in the cold looking at all the pretty lights. We drove back home and Skyped the family, it was really nice to see everybody and wish them merry Christmas. Everybody went to bed excited for the following ...

There were several old painted pianos dotted round the mall which random people would just sit down at and start playing. That's pretty original I guess.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Burnsley All Suite Hotel Denver
Big rooms but lacking in many areas
Stayed here in July 2004. The location is nice. We thought it was great and very unusual to have free parking in a downtown location. However, if you are driving a mini van or SUV you won't be able to park in the covered area (spaces are too small). The complimentary shuttle service around downtown was very convenient. The problems we encoutered were: a dusty, old smell in the bedroom, only one elevator working, and they did not have an extra pillow to send us.
This is great place for your money. I started off in a room on the second floor that was more of an efficiency type room that I was a little dissapointed in. But there was a wedding reception in the room below so they upgraded me to one of their one room suites upstairs. The suite was wonderful and roomy with a nice balcony where we could see the Rocky Mountains in the morning while we ate breakfast. Nice sized bathroom with all the eminities of home. Also there was a spacious kitchen with some cookwhere, silveware etc. You couldn't cook for 10 with the kitchenware but it worked great for a single mom on a budget. I was at the Burnsley during the late summer of 2003 and paid $74 dollars for 3 nights and $89 dollars for 2 nights. This is not a 5-star hotel but it is 10 times better than the Comfort Inn I would have stayed at for the same money.
My college apartment was nicer
This place reminded me of a mediocre college apartment, not a luxury all-suite hotel. Don't be fooled by the advertising! The person at the front desk reminded me of a drunken Dickens character, but the rest of the staff was nice. The bathroom had hair in the tub and sink and the amenties (shampoo, etc.) didn't match. I wouldn't go back here again for the price they charged us. It should have gone for something like $40/night. We stayed in August, 2003.
My wife and I stayed at the Burnsley for 3 nights in early May 2004. The hotel has a few "rough edges" (we had some water stains on our ceiling, there was paint chipping out on the balcony) but overall this was a good choice and a reasonable expense for all the room you get. Our plan included the breakfast buffett, which was good as well. Daily newspapers (the Sunday edition of the Denver paper, USA Today otherwise) are free. Staff was very helpful. Rooms were clean and housekeeping did a good job. We cooked basic food items in the kitchen (pizza in the oven) and were happy to have the full refrig, sink and stovetop; housekeeping took care of dirty dishes. Neighborhood is generally okay, but I don't know that I'd walk around at night. Downtown (LODO and Coors Field) are a healthy walk but doable. I'd recommend the Burnsley to others.
Suites were Great!
Our room was spacious and luxurious. The staff also took great care to maintain the overall cleanliness of the room and the rest of the hotel.
Full kitchen and spacious balcony just added to the overall experience of the place. There is also a supermarket within walking distance that made eating in that much easier. Of course downtown is also right up the street for those nights when exploring was in order.
Our family took a trip to Denver for the Mountain West Basketball Conference March 9-14, 2004. We had 3 rooms booked at a different hotel for the week, but my husband and I decided to stay one night at the Burnsley Hotel on March 9, 2004 for the first night (our anniversary).
Terrible place to stay
hotel breakfast was bad and made me very sick, the hotel does not look nice at all, poor view from the balcony(unless you want to see what old apartment looks like), very old and unsafe balcony, poor drainage system in both sink and shower tub, free shuttle van service is nice but waiting time is too long.
We stayed five nights at the end of September, 2003. When we arrived, parking was convenient, but the smell of cigarette smoke in the lobby overwhelmed us. The staff was very professional. Our room was quite large - and smoke free. The balcony sat two easily. The kitchen was convenient, but lacked a microwave. Housekeeping was diligent, they even washed the dishes. The neighborhood is quiet, a mix of old houses and apartments. Downtown is 5 minutes away. A 24-hour supermarket is equally close.
Great Experience at The Burnsley
We stayed at The Burnsley from July 27-29 and we can't say enough great things about the hotel and their staff. We had a problem with our original room (dog across the hall barked constantly) and when they found out it was our anniversary, they upgraded us to one of their top floor suites. The suites were about the same (all are generously sized about the size of an apartment) but the view was great! The hotel is within walking distance of downtown but they also offer a free shuttle service. We got a really good internet rate ($119) that also included their breakfast buffet, which was great. What really impressed us was their staff -- they were so friendly and helpful anytime we had a question. We loved our stay and would definitely stay there again.
Lots of Room
Stayed here June 7 for 2 days. You can walk to all the sites downtown. We had a King Suite which we only paid 129 a night for and it was like a New York City apartment! Living room, separate area for a dining table, kitchen, bedroom and large bath. We overlooked the capital dome. The best part is their free van service. He took us to and from a Rockies game, the zoo and breakfast. All these locations were within 5 miles of the hotel.
