So I thought
Unfortunately, Zac was adamant that I be on his team, and so, somehow I ended up doing the gingerbread house making thing.
Did I mention it was a competition?
It was a competition, with actual competitors, who were actually competitive.

 At their advice I stopped off for lunch next door at Pints Pub, an overly English pub run by self-proclaimed anglophile and "single malt man" Scott. Whilst I wasn't too impressed by the phone box in the corner, and on the menus, I was impressed with his dedication. **Representing over 150 distilleries and far more expressions, PP offers the broadest selection of single malts outside the UK**. Obviously, I ordered an IPA, and ...
... quick tour of the area and one of our favorite coffee shops. What I knew, and Karyn didn't, was that David would be coming in from Boston as a surprise Thursday night! Unfortunately, when we piecked Karyn up from work she caught the presence of a shirt of David's that had come along with Jeanne and the surprise was busted a little bit early.
Throughout the afternoon David began to text me and seemed a little bit sketchy. He ...
... interrupted. If they want to keep talking one of them could always swap seats with me? Haha yeah, right. I settle in for my four hour flight, unlike JetBlue there is no entertainment system so I just play on my phone and read the inflight magazine. At different points of the flight I chat with the people either side of me. It's hard to be in close quarters and ignore someone - and I'm always happy for a chat.

Hi there. Been quiet for a couple of days cause mom and I have been exhausted, and early this morning we flew back to Denver.
On Friday we went to the Aquarium of the Bay. They have a tunnel underwater, where you can see the animals swim around. They even had a "Nemo" and "Dory" swimming together. :)
After that we went to a dinner called Johnny Rocket. Their food was a bit meh though. Then we took a ride on one of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Omni Interlocken Resort Broomfield
We were staying for 8 nights at the Omni. We origanally were given a beautiful suite. (There are only 11) After 2 nights we were told we had to move into a regular room (also beautiful) because they overbooked. To make a long story short we got to stay in the suite and were graciously compensated with many meals. The staff was very knowlegable and did everything within their power to make our stay comfortable. I highly rec. this Omni. It is truly a first class hotel.
Golf, shopping, what more can you ask for?
We stayed at the Omni June 9-12. Upon entering the lobby to check in, I was offered champagne or lemonade. I am a member of their Select Guest program. My key was waiting for me. We stayed in room 939. We had a view of the mountains and the Flatiron Crossing shopping area. It was a little larger than the average room. We had all the amenities. Robes, Eucalyptus to hang on our tub faucet so water would run over it for our baths, bottled water and mints delivered to us with turndown service, incredibly comfortable beds with down comforters, etc. The spa was under construction. However, the gym was open and had the basics for you to have a decent workout. The pool was outdoors and had towels and a bar there for your convenience. The location is fabulous. Easy access to DIA (Denver Airport) or get on Hwy. 36 and head for Denver or Boulder. You also are about a 45 minute drive to Black Hawk, Central City for gambling, or ski areas are very convenient. The shopping area has EVERYTHING you could ever want or imagine. There are also factory outlet malls just about every direction. The golf courses are above average in play and price. The Meritage restauant off the lobby has wonderful brunch and the food from the menu is good value and very tasty. My only complaint is that I couldn't stay longer!
My family and I just returned from a wonderful stay at this hotel, which stretches between a golf course and an upscale business park. The staff was excellent, and we enjoyed being 20 mins to Boulder and 40 mins to Denver and close to the highway, a large outdoor mall and several good family restaurants (Buca de Bepo and Canyon Cafe). Best of all, we enjoyed their free shuttle over to shopping, free bikes from the exercise center to explore the bike trail, the ecupultus steam room, sauna, etc. The heated outdoor pool and jucuzzi are both kept very clean and we enjoyed every minute. The room was very nice, and if you sign up for Omni's free Select Guest program before you go, you'll get beautiful robes and free coffee and tea delivered to your room in the morning. Beautiful. upscale property and a nice get-away.
Great place to stay
This hotel is in a great location. It is located less than two miles away from Flatiorns crossing shopping center. The hotel staff was very polite. The room was very clean, well kept, and larger than I thought it was going to be. The restarunt was very good but a little expencive for what you get.
Great getaway local or visiting
What a great place to stay. My wife and I just wanted to get away and relax. The staff was extremely helpful and polite. They have a great shuttle service to local shopping and restaurants. We enjoyed the spa and pool (with poolside bar service).
The concierge even let my wife use her sunglasses when my wife asked about somewhere to buy some since she forgot her own. Would stay again in a heartbeat. Thanks
Can you say Photo Shop??
First off, let me start off by saying that the photos that they provide on the website for this hotel have been modified to make you believe that this hotel sits out in seclusion and also directly below the mountains. It does not. Yes, you can see the mountains way off in the distance, but they are probably 15 miles away. This hotel is for the business traveler. Not for someone wanting to get away and have great mountain views. It is next to a mall and plenty of places to eat which can be good and bad depending on what you're looking for.
The golf is ridiculously priced. I think it was 85 or higher. There are other courses not far from the hotel that are less than half that price and just as nice.
The staff at the hotel was very nice, and the room was clean. The garbage cans were very dirty however as they do not put plastic bags in them and obviously never wash them out after each guest.
I just don't think that the room was worth the money. We bid this hotel on priceline.com for 75 a night and I felt like the room wasn't any nicer than a Best Western we staid in at Nederland, CO.
You don't get free continental breakfast like most hotels/motels provide now a days. The Embassy Suites would have been just as nice and you get free breakfast and drinks there.
My biggest complaint (my only legitimate complaint really) is that they spray a deodorizer in the rooms (all rooms non-smoking AND smoking) that smells like a cheap car air freshener. These types of deodorizers give me the worst headache imaginable.
When I told the front desk person of the awful smell they told me that they didn't spray any deodorizers in the non-smoking rooms. This is NOT true. She let me look at 4 other rooms and they all had this awful perfume deodorizer smell.
Even one of their staff went up to the room with me and said that he also couldn't stay in one of these rooms with that strong smell. I can't figure out why a lot of these hotels are doing this now a day?? Don't they realize that a lot of people are allergic to perfume smells?
I complained to the Hotel Manager. I doubt that did any good. He was a little snobby in my opinion and didn't offer anything. He said he'd check into it. He did admit that all rooms get "lightly" sprayed with deodorizer but it shouldn't be that strong.
We were stuck here for 2 nights because we bid this hotel on Priceline and couldn't get our money back so I opened the windows and tried to stay in the room only when we were sleeping and took plently of asprin.
We also had our 2 small miniature schnauzers with us that we paid a 50 dollar fee for and a 50 dollar refundable fee. They say they are pet friendly but I would not suggest bringing your pet to this hotel. We got the dirtiest looks from guest staying there.
Our dogs are very well behaved show dogs and every other hotel we staid in on this trip to Colorado loved them.
Again, if you're going for business great... If you're not, go some where else.
Great getaway experience
We stayed at the Omni Interlochen and had a terrific experience. The view was beautiful from our room, the front desk was very helpful, and the rooms were clean, well-done, and there was attention to detail. I would definitely come back to this hotel. The only downside is that Boulder is about a 15 minute drive away.
Nice hotel, OK rooms!
I stayed here in early September 2004 on business for 3 nights. The hotel is in a great location and the staff was very friendly. I was impressed with the large lobby and the bar was very crowded and fun. I was upset with the room however. I expected more from Omni. It was very plain and not at all typical of a 4 star room.
Loved this hotel
We stayed at the Omni for a weekend get-away and had a great time! We got upgraded to a suite which was a large, three-room suite with a balcony. The room was clean and well-appointed. The room service was great and the staff was friendly and responsive. The pool was warm. The hotel is very close to a large mall and tons of shopping and restaurants....very convenient. We had a great time and want to back and do it again!
I usually spend over 100 nights a year in hotels. I have never stayed in a louder more uncomfortbale property. The hotel was not full so why they assigned me to this hell hole is beyond me. The room was clean and with average appointments. The sheets were such low threadcount they felt like horse hair. The bottom sheet was not fitted and the mattress pad was lumpy. The staff was prompt and courteous so they had to be trained to do somethings right. If you come just be sure to get a higher floor away from the elevator or any source of noise- there is no insulation. this was my second and last visit here.
