Pretty Darn Neat Hotel A review of JW Marriott Denver Cherry Creek
The JW Marriott Denver is a very unique hotel. Its in Cherry Creek North which almost has a small town/main street look. But though it looks main street/small town, its a very trendy area. Then you cross 1st Avenue which is 1 block away and you are at the Cherry Creek Mall, which has Saks, Neiman and many many other high end retailers. Also a few blocks away is the Tattered Cover Bookstore which is one of the largest in the US. The hotel is relatively small for a Marriott, but its not exactly a boutique hotel either. Its kind of a hybrid of the two. The public areas are very bold as far as Marriott goes, almost seemed Art Decoish. The hotel clientele seemed fairly rich and upscale and you probably wouldn't like the hotel if you don't have at least a little bit of sophistication in your blood. This hotel is very unique and very hard to classify. You have to go and see it for yourself to understand. It projected both the impression of a quaint boutique hotel on a Connecticut Mainstreet but also had vibes of a glitzy, pretentious hotel in NY. The decor was very daring and tantalizing but yet it still felt like a big box hotel retailer. It seemed both cozy and pretentious. I guess in a way this hotel is typical Denver, new meets old, east meets west, cowboy meets moviestar. Go check it out.
