The reason why I chose this place is because my wife and I were to stay in the center of downtown Denver, arriving from Albuquerque, so that next day we could head out to Keystone Ski Resort, which was about less than two hours away. Also, we wanted to have a taste of Denver in the evening, which was a concert held 4 blocks away from the hotel.
First, understandably, after 6 1/2 hours of driving from Albuquerque, we felt that it was necessary to go for a walk, and with help of iPhone, we learned that there was a great park to walk on just 2 1/2 blocks away from the hotel. The park was called, funny name, the Cheeseman Park, where we saw a lot of joggers in spite of snowy weather. (You'll see the pictures.) It was a great walk.
Then, we went to a restaurant/bar named Irish Snug across the street. You can walk from the hotel in 2 minutes. Especially, it was snowy and we didn't feel like driving much, so it was a perfect place to go! The place was almost packed when we got there, but they had 'Happy Hour' going on drinks, which is a 2 for 1 deal. We could go back there later on if we wanted with a coupon that we were handed upon the first drink.
After the meal, we took some rest back at the hotel. And then we soon headed out again to check out the band. We were easily able to walk to the Fillmore Auditorium. Seriously, it is the smart way to get there - walking in downtown.
Now, the only major problem we had was the noise over night. Because a lot of tourists, including teenagers in groups, were staying at the hotel to head out for skiing next day, and obviously they can party all night and still can head out early in the morning next day, so it was quite noisy for us to have a good night sleep. On top of that, I think that some sensitive people would find the street noise quite annoying at night as well.
Overall, it is a good place to stay for a night or so, but it's not the best place if you are looking for any relaxation, spa, romance...
