We decided to spend a weekend in Denver and chose to stay at this hotel. When driving into the city from the airport the hotel did not look too bad, although I have seen Ramadas in far better shape.

The first thing I noticed was the smell. This place must have been a smoker's paradise until just recently. When checking in, the staff was friendly. The other good thing about this place is the free and fast WiFi. But unfortunately, those are the only good points of the hotel.

1) A used syringe dropped out of the sheets just a couple of inches from my feet. Luckily, nobody got poked by it. When I confronted the front desk about their obviously lousy room keeping service, they promised to refund the night's stay when checking out. When checking out, the refund was denied for some bogus reason (for not having booked directly with Ramada, but through another website).
2) The rooms are not vintage, they are just old. The dark colors and – once again - the smell of cold cigarette smoke in combination with a carpet of an undefinable color and fiber added up to a very uncomfortable feeling. Besides its tiny size, the bathroom could not hide its age either: A hole in the shower curtain and far more than usual wear-and-tear rounded-up the whole bad impression.
Plus: The room was dirty (besides the syringe). I found long curly hairs in the sink and at the coat track. The bathroom floor was not clean either.
3) The rooms are noisy (at least those facing the street – Colfax equals heavy traffic) plus the dodgy establishments in the neighborhood added the bassline driven soundtrack to this stay throughout the night. Once the music stopped, room keeping started the vacuum cleaners, slamming doors, and just being unnecessarily loud in the hallway.
4) The parking lot is far too small for a hotel of this size. Other guests were made to park in the fire lane although a sign at the front desk informed them that the Denver PD would ticket and tow.
5) The name „Downtown Denver“ is misleading as it takes 10 minutes to get to the State Capitol, Civic Center and other real downtown sites. I was surprised by the large number of liquor stores and other questionable businesses around.

Room Tip: Any other hotel would do.

Nothing flash here, but as I say in the title, it is what you would expect from this standard of hotel. We were here for a trade show, and found it a good location with a number of options for food close by. Everything in the hotel was clean. The bar/restaurant was undergoing renovations while were there, so cannot comment on this. Staff very friendly and helpful. Parking became a problem on the Saturday night as a result of an event taking place in the hotel.

My husband and I recently visited Denver for the first time (from Connecticut) for our anniversary. The hotel is in a great location.There are lots of shops and restaurants around. The room was clean and the hotel staff was attentive. Brian at the front desk was amazing! He knows everything about the area and gave us great tips on where to eat, what to visit, things to see etc. The breakfast at the restaurant pretty good. It's not not included in the room rate, but there is a room service option, which is always nice. Overall, the hotel is a really good pick for the money. I would definitely stay again!

Overall I thought the hotel was good enough for the 3 nights. The rooms are large and comfy but some rooms are clearly better then others and I suppose I was fortunate enough to get a good one. The location is about 15mins walk from downtown and the area surrounding the hotel is decent enough with two excellent bars across the road. A cab from DIA will set you back about 55USD + Tip.

Previous reviews raised concerns about the general area (Colfax St) but I found the area fine and surprisingly entertaining. The two bars across from the hotel are well worth a visit.
