My husband and I wanted a mini-escape for our 5-year Anniversary to explore Denver just as a couple and not having to appease the will of a toddler haha and we booked a night at this hotel. The package that included valet parking was SO worth it, a place to park downtown in walking distance of so much! The room was clean and bright and they celebrated our anniversary along with us by providing special treats in our room. This was so cool and special, we so very much appreciated it. The lobby was open and wonderful, great bar with free punch in the evening, and just so accommodating overall. Loved the Monet VIP ticket package as well, it was a great value! We are definitely keeping this hotel in mind for future visits because it was so awesome.
Arrived last week, during a small snow storm. Won't bore you with my trials and tribulations driving from the airport very late at night, and the horrendous road conditions. They don't like to plow roads in Denver on major highways..
The check in was delightful, had a great room. TV offered numerous OTT platforms, like HBO, Neftflix and etc. Bathroom was new and the room was a nice size.
The bar and bar food was very good.
Location was ideal, next to the 16th st. mall.
While there aren't any activities onsite, the kids might get a kick out of the giant checker boards in the lobby!
Fine dining meets the American West at this restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is a good place to take the kids for breakfast, with a full breakfast offered for $18 per person (or a continental breakfast for $15). The restaurant offers a kids' menu (that doubles as an activity sheet); all kids' meals come with a drink (juice, milk, chocolate milk or soda).
The dress code is smart casual.
This is the most kid-friendly dining option onsite, with casual grab-and-go options (including delicious pastries) on offer. It's open for breakfast and lunch daily.
In-room dining is provided by Range.

The Best Time to Visit
The hotel is consistently busy throughout the year, but is especially popular in the summer.
The Renaissance Denver Downtown City Center Hotel is about 45 minutes from Denver International Airport, factoring in traffic. The easiest way to reach the hotel is via a rental car or an Uber or Lyft. You can also take a train from the airport to Union Station, but will still have a 15-minute walk or 10 minute-car ride from there.
While the hotel is close to many major attractions, you'll still want your own vehicle to explore—especially if you plan to visit nearby Golden, Fort Collins or Rocky Mountain National Park.
- Teller Bar: Visit the Teller Bar for a nightly reception with complimentary punch crafted from local liquors.
