... experience much (if ever) on this trip. During one of those lunch stops I called to get tickets lined up for myself and the crew joining me for my final game. It does feel a bit weird finishing my trip with a stadium that I have visited many times before. It almost feels as if I finished my trip in Detroit since it was the last stadium I hadn't ever visited.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Timbers Hotel Denver
Loved the restaurant
We stayed in the Timbers Hotel in Denver, Colorado conveniently located right off the Intrestate as your traveling west from DIA. We were immediately treated by all of the staff as valued customers. When we dined in the restaurant, our expectations were completely surpassed by the comfortable atmosphere and the INCREDIBLE food. I have NEVER had food this unique and delicious in a hotel restaurant before. I would come back to Denver just to eat at the Peoria Grill in the Timbers Hotel.
Our flight into Denver was late in the day so we stayed here before a ski vacation in Beaver Creek. We were traveling with our 6 month old and parents so we stayed in a two bedroom suite with lots of room and lots of nice little details. The Timbers staff was very helpful in providing a crib and the dishwasher in the room was great for bottles. A few in our party went to the managers reception (5-7 mon-fri)which offered well drinks, beer, and soft drinks. The beds and furniture were very comfortable. The only complaint I had was low water pressure and slow drain in the shower. The breakfast was terrific and made for a great start to our day. Overall you can not beat this place for the money. I would recommend this place and will return should I ever stay in Denver again.
Lunch at Timbers
Was excited to see a new place to eat in the Montebello area of Denver so decided to try lunch with a group of 11. It was very disappointing. The selection was limited, portions were extremely small, and it was all over-priced. The quality and test of the food was above average, but all went away hungry. This type of eating place would be more appropriate in a downtown setting.
Really would recommend - airport, 70 access and fitzimmons medical
I really enjoyed my stay at the Timbers. The facilities were brand new and very nicely decorated in a western motiff.
I would recommend this place for Gitzimmons Medical Center Access, Extended stays, the Stock Show and the Airport. Easy I70 access
Some of my favorite amenities:
Managers Reception in the evening with free drinks and appetizers, Free wifi, an excellent free breakfast, and restaurant/grill on site, a free shuttle that took me to the stock show.
My room was nice with a great little kitchen, an outside deck area, and an excellent mattress and pillow. I am picky on the mattresses and was pleased.
I spent 30 or 40 minutes wandering around the property looking at the western decor... there was some neat stuff, I put photos of some of my favorites on Flickr.
I would recommend this to anyone that wants a little higher quality too. I have to fly out of Denver a few times a year and will certainly be here again.
I went there on business. I needed to be closer to the airport, but didn't want one of the airport hotels. The timbers is about a 10-15 minute drive, but closer to downtown, and especially the Fitzimmons Medical center.
The perfect hotel to stay on the way up or down from the mountains!
This is exactly the type of hotel a skier should stay in when traveling to and from the mountains! Its a very high end property with an elegant mountain ambiance. This is the perfect location and setting if you have to stay the night before or the night after a ski vacation, when traveling in and out of DIA. The service is incredible and probably the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in.
Many great things to say about this place!
WOW! The Timbers hotel is quite amazing! First off the location is not in the best of areas, a little drive to downtown Denver, but in between downtown and DIA which can be a plus. Also, I would not recommend going out yourself late at night in the area, it does not feel too safe. Although the hotel is in Denver, it is surrounded by the city of Aurora. The outside of the hotel and the halls are rather plain, so don't judge a book by its cover. You notice the western contemporary décor as soon as you enter the lobby. The gas fireplace in the lobby is cool-its lined at the bottom with broken glass chips and a plasma television on the opposite side of it. The staff at check in was not too helpful, she did not know much, nor did she inform us breakfast in the morning (good thing I already knew by reading the other posts). She was probably new, it is a new hotel and we have all been in that position before. Just know that this hotel serves complimentary breakfast every morning and an evening reception Monday through Thursday. The breakfast was above great; Starbucks coffee, hot chocolate, hot tea, juice, water, milk, and many items, such as hot bacon, sausage, potatoes, eggs with cheese, oatmeal, cold cereal, muffins and scones, yogurt with granola, and a few other items. The décor in the Iron Grill where breakfast is served was also decorated nicely.
The suites are HUGE! Remember that not all rooms have a balcony; some do not, so you have to ask for one. Also, the hotel actually has three floors, so if you want a higher floor with high vaulted ceilings, make sure you ask for one. The televisions in the suites are large, but remember that there is a difference between "flat screen" and "flat tube", which the flat "tube" televisions are in the rooms (I am not complaining, just informing you). They do have a DVD player which is nice. They do not have many channels, but they do have several channels of HBO. The living room décor is quite nice as well, and plenty of room to sit. We stayed at the hotel when it was rather cold outside, so naturally the room was cold too. The heat is through the ac unit. There is one ac unit in the bedroom and one in the living room. The two small units have to be used to heat up the whole room, and it did take a little over an hour to get the temperature to a comfortable temp, especially with the vaulted ceilings.
The kitchens do not have an oven, but they do have a two burner cook-top, refrigerator, small slim dishwasher, sink and granite countertops. I really can't agree that the kitchens are full size. They are more in between a kitchenette and full size kitchen. The kitchens to come equipped with all place settings and glassware. The water is cloudy and has minerals floating in it, no matter how long you run it for. I believe the water comes from Aurora, not Denver (there is a difference in clarity and taste between Denver's water and Aurora's water). The dining area has a nice large dining table with four micro suede chairs. They feel luxurious.
The bedroom is HUGE, with vaulted ceilings as well (on the top floor). We had a king size bed with a pillow top mattress and huge pillows, it was extra comfy! There is also a sitting area with a small sofa and a small cocktail table in the bedroom. The bathroom is a good size with granite counters and a vanity area. The bathroom only has a shower though! No bathtubs in the hotel. I am a fan of both baths and showers, so if you are planning on taking a nice bath in the evening, you can't do that here, lol! It was okay; I had to adjust a bit. The shower head was nice and large, so it was not too bad. Also, there is not much closet space, only one small closet, but there are plenty of drawer space in the bedroom and living room.
All in all, I had a good experience, especially for the money. It was half the price of most hotel rooms with quadruple the size and amenities!! I definitely will go back! You can't go wrong by staying here. This is one of the very best hotels I have stayed at.
Upscale boutique style hotel
This is one of the finest boutique style hotels you will find in the Denver area, if not the country. The furnishings and style that the designers did to this property are outstanding, in all aspects. The size of the suites and the full kitchens with the diningroom and livingroom make this my home away from home. The individual bedroom are like a master suite in any of the finer homes in the country.
The lobby, continental breakfast western room (with hot entries), the lobby bar with the evening mangers reception, and the Peoria Grill make is a truly five star property. I would higly recommend this hotel to anyone.
Great suites love the large units must be over 650 square feet in size
The Timbers Hotel property was one of the finest I have stayed at in all the years I have been traveling, over 30 years. The suites with a full kitchen and the livingroom / diningroom make you feel like you are home. The seperate bedroom could not be nicer in design and furnishings, as is the entire unit. Highly recommend this property to anyone that is traveling to the Denver area.
The Timbers is the BEST!!!!
From the wonderful staff to the incredible immenities - The Timbers Hotel in Denver is the best hotel I have stayed at in the last 10 years of my traveling!!! The spacious rooms, convenient Peoria Bar and Grill restaurant and proximity to I-70 make The Timbers my number 1 choice in Denver hotels.
First rate experience
The room was a wonderfully spacious suite. It had a kitchen with a full sized fridge and a dishwasher! I enjoyed the TV with the DVD and VCR. The staff was very gracious and helpful. Parts of the hotel are still under renovation - the restaurant and the pool are not finished, but it was still a fantastic place to stay. Better comforts than home! The hotel is wonderfully decorated. It was a great stay!
