The most reasonable rate of the downtown hotels. Room was small, but not cramped, had a desk and loveseat. Bed was very comfortable, room was very clean. Great water pressure, even on the 12th floor! :) Staff was friendly, knowledgeable about the area and helpful. Location is next to 16th Street Mall, which is a great area to shop. The... More

From the moment we checked in until the moment we left we could not fault this hotel although we did not have a view it was not important as we only had the 1 night whilst in Denver. Beds were super comfy and staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was Ok but we enjoyed our night at this Holiday Inn.

I requested an early check in but did not receive confirmation so we decided to check in at the regular time. When we arrived we were informed our room was not ready. If we wanted a room right away we could take a room with 2 queen size beds instead of a queen bed and a sofa bed. We had... More

Be sure to book a room up high so you can maybe get a small view of the Rocky Mountains. You will mostly see tall office buildings in downtown Denver, but you might get lucky and be able to see some of the Rockies in the far distance. The staff was very professional. They do not have a restaurant, which... More

This hotel is in a great location right near 16th St. Mall. Staff very nice, room big and comfy. some people said they had trouble regulating air conditioner, but I found it fine. Good breakfast, elevators were a bit slow but was a busy time of year.
