Located just outside Denver, Omni Interlocken is on an expansive green property that overlooks the Rocky Mountains. The grounds showcase a 27-hole championship golf course, two outdoor pools, a whirlpool and Mokara Spa. More than 380 guestrooms and suites are well-appointed with down bedding, tile bathrooms and custom furnishings. The resort has thought of even the smallest details, like bathroom scales and plush bathrobes. Select units have private balconies. Suites offer sitting areas, additional bathrooms and multiple televisions. Video games consoles and high-speed Internet access are available for a surcharge. Pets are also welcome for a fee.
Meritage is a chic restaurant that offers an upscale, mountain atmosphere with a stone fireplace and outdoor patio. Fairways is a casual clubhouse that overlooks the golf course and mountains. American fare and cocktails are provided. The Tap Room and Terrace Restaurant and Bar is the perfect place for families to play billiards, foosball and darts while eating. Kids receive special treatment at Omni. Each Saturday morning, children can take the Kids Behind the Scenes Tour where they bake cookies with the chef and learn about the inner workings of a hotel. Children also are given welcome gifts of books and games. Parents are informed as to where the best kid-friendly activities are in Denver. Childproofing items, such as outlet covers and nightlights, are also provided.

Lovely property with nice views on both sides of the hotel. There's a very nice lounge/fireplace area near the lobby for relaxing outside of your hotel room. The rooms are plush and fairly large, but did not have a table suitable for dining. There was a desk though.
Omni is always a great choice! And if you have the option, include breakfast. Its delicious (and expensive if purchased separately). Service this trip was not great (disappointing, really) but not the norm so I didn't hold that against them too much. Beautiful property, and the pool is awesome!
