      Gemischte Gefühle

      from

      Verbrachten das Wochenende 18. - 20. Mai in diesem Hotel, um uns ein Spiel der Rockies anzusehen. Die Lage macht Unternehmungen im Zentrum schwierig, und durch all die Einbahnstraßen ist das Hotel nicht so leicht zu finden. Das Hotel ist sauber und das Personal war sehr nett und entgegenkommend. Die Zimmer sind allerdings sehr billig eingerichtet und ausgestattet und entsprechen nicht dem, was ich von der Marriott-Marke gewöhnt bin. Das (Doppel-)Bett war schlechter als das Bett, das ich als Student hatte, so wie eines dieser billigen Sonderangebote aus dem Matratzengeschäft. Mein Rücken tut mir jetzt noch weh und ich bin immer noch müde, weil ich nicht genug geschlafen habe.

      Die Klimaanlage ging nicht, sodass wir Zimmer wechseln mussten. Die Angestellte am Empfang war zwar sehr entgegenkommend, aber wir mussten erst alles Mögliche mit dem Thermostat anstellen, bevor wir umziehen durften.

      Insgesamt ist dieses Hotel okay, wenn es einem nichts ausmacht, etwas abseits zu sein von den meisten Dingen im Zentrum. Aber die Betten sind so unbequem, dass ich nicht noch einmal herkommen werde.

      Ein Pluspunkt des Hotels war das sehr nette Personal.

      Great deal for a great hotel!

      from

      I stayed here with 2 friends April 27-29th. We had originally booked a 2 bedroom suite, but upon check-in they informed us that we could instead get 2 1-bedroom suites that were connected with a door. This worked out wonderfully, we propped the doors open and then had 2 bathrooms instead of just one. Also, the check-in time is 3pm, but we got there around Noon. They checked us right in, no problem whatsoever. I found the staff to be EXTREMELY helpful, providing us with printed maps whenever we asked for directions, doing whatever they could to accomodate us, just doing what a hotel should do, although that's increasingly hard to find these days.

      The rooms were quiet, and have small but fully-equipped kitchens.

      I did have a problem with my toilet not flushing properly, all it took was one call to the front desk and 2 men promptly came to my room and took care of the problem.

      I have never stayed at a nicer hotel, for such a great price and a good location. The only complaint we can find, and it's so miniscule is that there were no luggage racks. I just used the desk in the room since this was a pleasure trip, not business.

      I would DEFINITELY recommend this hotel, and would definitely stay here again if I ever make a return visit to Denver!

      A welcomed stay...

      from

      I found TownePlace on Hotwire, but of course you don't see what hotel you get until you pay with Hotwire. Anyway, this is a nice place in a convenient location. After driving around Colorado for the past week, this place was a welcomed respite from the road for a few days. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. I am an amputee, so I asked for the handicap room and the bathroom was very considerate of the disabled and the kitchen had lowered cupboards and counters for those in wheelchairs. If you're not familiar with Denver it can be a little tricky to find, but not too awful. I almost hate to say it, but I was more comfortable here than at my friend's house in Vail since the room is designed for the disabled. For 2 nights on Hotwire it cost me $115 total, including taxes. I don't know how much you know about costs of hotels in Denver, but this is very reasonable. If you use Hotwire, look under 2.5 star hotels in downtown Denver. If you see a lot of little icons, including one for a kitchenette, it's likely to be this you'd end up booking, though it's often hard to say. I know that Hotwire uses the national chains. I didn't see any similar types of accommodations in the area when driving around. When I come to Denver next I'll definitely stay here - it's inexpensive, well maintained, clean, comfortable and close to everything in downtown.

      Quiet and Easy to find

      from

      Just a block and half off of I-25, exit 201, it was pretty easy to get to and from the hotel. During our stay, it was undergoing some remodeling, but did not seem to impact us other than checking in. The office was temporarily moved to one of the guest rooms.

      While the hotel is right next to a Chili's and a movie theatre, it is surprisingly quiet most of the time and has very good sound proofing. A car alarm that we heard on the outside was difficult to hear once in our room.

      The fitness room is tiny (one bike, one treadmill, and one confounded stairstepper knockoff) and fit no more than three people at a time. However, they didn't seem to even claim having one on their website. So, it was an added bonus regardless. Parking space can be very limited. May want to arrive early to find a spot each night.

      Overall, it is a bargin per the close location to downtown Denver.

      Everything was fine, just 8 blocks from 16th St Mall

      from

      made a PL vacation flight hotel package. Two night stay, after doing my homework, I realize this place is an 8 block walk just to the beginning of the 16th St Mall. Checkin was easy and no mention of anything, assigned a top floor room. Dropped of my stuff and asked the best way to get to Coors Field, taxi was suggested. Returning, I took the free Mall shuttle to the end and after 10pm, the walk seemed longer, especially stopping off at Walgreens and carrying a bagful of stuff. The room was fine with stove, microwave and full size fridge. Fitness room seemed small and did not use. Coffee in the morning in the office area and cookies in the afternoon. My room was on the Speer side, so traffic noise could be heard. Parking was free. Overall, nice hotel, just not right in downtown, eight blocks away.

      Better than expected!! AAA+++

      from

      stayed at this hotel for a week while visiting my son. We had reservations for a two bedroom suite, when we got there they upgraded us to two studio apartments for the same price per night. The studios were very clean and had a sitting area and kitchen. The maid service was excellent. The hotel in general is spotless. I even saw the maids washing the walls in the hallways!! The location is good, it's about 7 blocks to downtown. I wouldn't walk it, but if you are in better shape than me, it might not be a problem. The front desk staff couldn't do enough for you and were very friendly. I wouldn't think twice about staying at this hotel again...

      Convenient location; don't take a room by the elevator

      from

      Rooms were nice and clean and had a small kitchen, which was nice. It's about a 20 minute walk from downtown and right beside the river bike/pedestrian trail. If you want daily housekeeping, then this is not the hotel for you. They give you fresh towels and kind of make the beds, but don't clean the sinks etc. Also, make sure you don't get a room by the elevator - it's very noisy. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

      We Like the Towneplace Downtown

      from

      We have stayed at the Towneplace Suites Denver Downtown on numerous occasions, most recently October 2005. We used to stay at the Grand Hyatt on Welton, and have tried other hotels in the area too, but now always stay at the Towneplace.

      For us, it's ideal. We don't need to be any closer to the centre of downtown. We are close enough to walk in if we want to - it only takes about 20 minutes, straight up Broadway. The parking is free, although it is sometimes annoying to see so many people who are obviously hospital employees taking the prime parking spaces at the hotel.

      A studio suite is pretty much the same size as a standard hotel room but we find them so much more comfortable, particularly for a longer stay. You get a queen bed with nightstand either side, a sofa and armchair, coffee table and small corner table, desk/table and chair, TV and good wardrobe space. You also have a kitchen area with microwave, full-size stove and full-size fridge with freezer compartment, and a good range of basic utensils supplied. The bathroom is a good size, and there's an excellent selection of TV channels.

      There is no restaurant or bar but that doesn't bother us at all. There's always coffee in the lobby in the morning and cookies in the evening. Just across the road at 6th and Broadway, there are several eateries including Quizno's, Starbucks, Jamba Juice (I love Jamba!) and others I can't remember. There's also a Burger King and Wendy's within walking distance, and a very nice restaurant called Racines. And the Buckhorn Exchange is only a 5-minute drive away. A 5-minute drive down Broadway there's an Albertsons supermarket, more restaurants and - for model railroad enthusiasts - Caboose Hobbies, the largest model railroad shop in the world!

      The rooms are accessed from internal corridors which, together with the lobby area, are pleasant and welcoming. The building is secure - with key card access from the lobby, so people can't just wander into and around the hotel. The staff have always been friendly and helpful. Depending on the length of your stay, on some days you get full housekeeping and on others 'light' housekeeping where I think they're supposed to just make the bed and change towels. On our last stay the housekeeping service was pretty hit-and-miss and we had several days where they didn't come into the room at all, but we'd never had this happen before.

      I don't understand the negative review saying it's horrible, and it certainly isn't old or run-down - I think it was only built in about 2000. Except for the corner facade from the old Hirschfield Building, which is architecturally very interesting. But yes, it is an 'efficiency' not a full-service Marriott, and is advertised as such.

      We've already booked our next stay, and are looking forward to being there for Christmas and New Year.

      Stay away

      from

      Horrible facility. Old, run down, 60's style. More like an efficiency rather than what you have come to know from Marriot. Horrible says enough. Would never stay there again buisness or pleasure.

      I Feel so Comfortable Here.

      from

      I have stayed at this hotel twice to visit my ill Mother and I just love it to death. First let me say that I do not like hotel rooms, I feel uncomfortable in them for some reason, but I never felt uncomfortable at this hotel. Its like a hotel, but yet it feels very residential which made me feel very comfortable. I like that you had a FULL Kitchen in your room, plus the rooms were bigger than a hotel room. Also its on the edge of a big residential area so it kind of felt like an apt complex almost. I kind of liked being able to enter your room without going through a lobby of elitists. I'm a part-time redneck and walking through those fancy lobby's at Hyatt and Embassy Suites and Marriott always bothers me and none of that problem here. The hotel does not have a parking charge which is another thing that attracts me to this hotel. But beware, this hotel is not downtown as the name suggests. Its about 9/10 of a mile from the border of the ACTUAL downtown. You can drive and be in the actual downtown or city center in about 4 minutes. If you gong to one of the big office towers downtown or to a convention and you don't want to rent a car, then this is not the hotel for you because the big office towers and the convention center is not a reasonable walk. Another plus is you can get to the Creek Creek area in about 5 minutes and its a very easy 1 turn drive to both Cherry Creek and Downtown.

      The Vietnamese restaurant was actually good. I loved eating the pho. So nice to get pho again. The avocado boba was not blended enough, but I was so happy to have boba again. So happy to have lunch with my amazing friends.

      ... through the desert. Why would you build a house there? A casino with no other buildings in sight. And then another casino. Shacks surrounded by scores of ancient trucks just rusting away. And so it went on and on but it's so fascinating that the time just flies.
