Comfort & Convenience, Conveniently Located
Posted Jul 17, 2016
If you're headed to Red Rocks Amphitheater or staying in the Denver area, this would be a good selection with easy access highways, the Amphitheater less than 10 miles away and Denver about 20 minutes by car. Unlike downtown Denver hotels, parking is free and there are plenty of chain and local restaurants in the area. You will note under improvements I suggested they provide a complimentary breakfast bar. They have a "Bistro" area where breakfast is served during the AM (with Starbucks); alcoholic beverages with lighter fare and appetizers in the evening. This is all okay but....I ordered breakfast sandwiches for the teenagers in my group and it took FOR....EVER to get the food (no one else was dining). I was sitting by the food prep area and NO ONE was in a hurry and the kids thought it tasted "boxed" or microwaved. McDonalds would have tasted better & been faster, ugh. Being a price conscious traveler looking for value, I could not get over the fact that I felt a bit trapped: Either pay for the "convenience" of their breakfast OR leave the building and go somewhere. Here's an idea: Put out a simple breakfast bar like everybody else (cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, doughnuts or pastries) then put an omelette guy behind the counter where we can SEE the product being made and we know it's fresh. After all this is said, I probably would find a hotel that serves a complimentary breakfast. Sorry I missed that in the hotel description. For this reason, NOT coming back.
