But don't get a room on the second floor. Some of the rooms have a window faces a concrete wall with little light from above. In addition on a busy night you have restaurant and music noise. The higher floors are better. The staff is friendly and the rooms clean.
This was our first time staying at the Marriott Denver West and we were pleasantly surprised. It looks like most of the facility has gone through a recent renovation, which resulted in lovely common areas that were warm and inviting. The lounge/dining area in the main area was very comfortable, and the staff attended to our every whim. Our room was comfortable, clean, and quiet for the most part (note to the lady who let her three loud children run through the halls at 7am on a Sunday...this is a hotel, NOT a playground. Ugh!!). The location cannot be beat, so if you find yourself in this neck of the woods, this is a hotel that you definitely want to consider.
The only complaint I had--and I am willing to take responsibility for this oversight when making a reservation--was our view (or, more appropriately, the lack thereof). Our window opened up directly onto the ventilation system of the main building, so we got to look at a solid concrete wall for the duration of our stay when so many of the rooms had much more enviable views. All of the rooms that they had with views of either the foothills or the city, and we got stuck with the room looking back at the HVAC system. Again, I attribute this to my lack of specificity when making our reservations, but next time I will definitely ask for a room with at least some kind of view or balcony. Do yourself a favor and be specific, lest you have the same fate as we did. Nevertheless, it was a great stay and we will be back!
We met here and stayed at the Silk Pincushion for a girls weekend away. All of us found this B&B to be quite charming. It was very clean and close enough to walk to town, plus we were not far from Denver. The breakfasts we had while there were very good, and clearly homemade. I thought that this was a great place to stay and would readily stay at the Silk Pincushion again. I do not understand how anyone could rate this place low - I don't get it. If they want something more perhaps they should stay at the Brown Palace in Denver and pay a few hundred dollars more a night. I think this is a case of people being far to critical of a very nice B&B!
Check-in was quite slow (took 15-20 minutes) as only one person was handling check-in, as well as taking a reservation and fielding calls from rooms and employees. The elevator was a bit tired as were the common areas generally. Room itself was very good value, and the bed was extremely comfortable - had a great night's sleep!
This was a last minute stay due to a tournament in town. Many other hotels in the area were already sold out. Made reservations via a phone call to Expedia. When we got to the hotel they claimed Expedia had overbooked the hotel and they did not have the room type we booked. It was too late to continue to look around so I inquired about booking 2 rooms so we'd have enough beds. Upon closer inspection the front desk clerk finally did find an available room to match what we had reserved. Room was clean, hallways rather old. Didn't try the pool. WiFi worked fine, beds were too soft. Breakfast was better than average with biscuits and gravy offered as well as some "egg patties" which tasted processed. I just ate the biscuits and gravy.
