Convenient to downtown, but a little shaky

Short taxi or Uber ride to the 16th Street Mall, but our room wasn't ready until an hour and a half after check-in time, paint peeling, inconvenient elevators, not much within walking distance. Suite looked more like a meeting room. Lids of coffee makers removed because apparently prior guests had done a number on them. I would stay there again, probably without my wife, but it wouldn't be my first choice. Sorry!

Overnight stay after Broncos night game

The beds were comfy. The pillows were too big. The location of the hotel to downtown is a plus. The bathroom was small. Overall the room served its purpose. I would stay there again.

Business trip

Saved money over staying downtown and paid a $10 cab fare to ride there each day. It hurt that they did not have a business center or computer to use. Pool was closed. Breakfest was only OK. The train switching station out back was noisy but got used to it.

Mildew smell from bathroom

They did not have any regular rooms so they gave me a handicapped room that had very low closets and a very high shower tub. The bathroom smelled very bad and the towels looked liked they have been used for 10 years. We payed 129 per night for a hotel and it seemed like we payed 129 for a very cheap motel room. I will not be staying here again.

Average at best

It's right next to the train tracks, so if you value sleep, this isn't the best place to stay.
