I visited Denver on business and we were required to stay at the Red Lion in Aurora. Its a nice hotel. Won't argue with it lacking amenities. But some things left me cold and not planning to return if I had my own money to spend. First, its almost impossible to get hold of the front desk. However, when I... More

This hotel has a good location. It is near highway I-225 North and Colorado road 83. When arrived, I was surprised it is an old huge building and has so many guest rooms. As we heard it is just renovated, I don’t feel it is an old hotel. The whole building inside looks good and the lobby looks spacious. Our... More

Early check-in unavailable so went back at check-in time of 3:00. Room wasn't available until 4:30. Our group had purchased breakfast coupons. Coupons weren't available at time of check-in. Air conditioning not working properly, toilet issues and worst of all, they overfilled my card $487.

So, let me first say the day I checked in I got there 30 minutes early, and ended up checking in an hour and half later, when they had rooms available. So in total I waited 2 hours to check in, pretty upset I asked to speak with the manager, he basically laughed in my face and said sorry with... More

I stayed this hotel as part of the bus tour to Yellowstone. Although the tour company selected this hotel, we were very satisfied and glad that they chosed this hotel. The room was roomy and well maintained. The bed was comfortable which is very important to us. We like to stay once again when we visit Denver.
