I recently had the opportunity to explore Denver for the first time and I FELL IN LOVE! What a city full of so much to do and see. When booking my accommodations, I decided having a home base in downtown Denver would be a great idea. This allowed me to easily get around to nearby attractions and I was also only a few minutes drive away from the downtown area. If you’re wondering where to stay in Denver, I suggest staying at The Curtis! This hotel offers a comfortable stay and has many added amenities. Keep reading to learn more about why The Curtis may be a great hotel choice for your own Denver experience.
The Curtis, named after the street that it’s on, is a comfortable hotel near many restaurants, shops, and attractions. It’s located only a few moments walk from the famous 16th Street Mall, so if you were hoping to try a variety of foods and shop until you drop, this is a great place to stay. If you’re looking for a more relaxing day, you can unwind and enjoy drinks and dinner at the on-site restaurant, The Corner Office. Here you can choose from a mix of entrees and sandwiches as you enjoy a refreshing signature cocktail.
What else is there to love about The Curtis? The rooms are comfy, spacious, and have everything you’ll need to fully enjoy your stay — including a coffee maker, mini fridge, and complimentary in-room wifi (a must for me!). I was traveling with a friend, so we enjoyed a double queen room. The beds were super comfy and we had plenty of room to move around. Our room also included a small desk area, which made it easy to get a bit of work done.
Something that stands out at The Curtis is the fact that each floor has a unique theme. The decor and designs are based on the floor themes. My favorite was the Fun and Games floor! I loved all of the Pac-Man and Mario Brothers graphics. This hotel is more than just a comfy rooms and cool decor. There are some extra amenities that will help to make your stay even better. There’s a large fitness center full of equipment and weights. If you enjoy working out while you’re on the road, you’ll feel right at home here. They also had a nice fruit bowl full of apples and oranges, so you can enjoy a healthy snack after your workout! On the same floor, there’s a business center. If you need to use a computer or printer while visiting Denver, this makes working on the go easy.
If you need your mid-day coffee fix, there’s also an on-site Starbucks here. I also loved that there was a cool reading area in the front of the lobby area. There were some fun magazines and games available, too!
The Curtis is a DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel. If you’ve never stayed at one of these hotels, you’re in for a treat (literally!) Upon check-in you’re welcomed with a warm chocolate chip cookie. They’re sooo yummy! I also loved that The Curtis surprised me with additional cookies. (Who can say no to warm chocolate chip cookies?!) One evening, I went to the front desk to ask a question and was presented with another cookie! When checking out, I was given a cookie as a goodbye treat.
My first-time Denver experience was made even better, thanks to The Curtis! If you’re planning an upcoming trip and want to stay at a hotel that offers a lot of great extras in addition to a comfy and spacious room, I recommend booking here.
