It has taken more than 600 miles, but we are finally in Denver. I’m staying at the Ritz Carlton in downtown because it is close to everything. I was responsible for having the rooms booked this time around so I wanted to make sure my mom and grandmother were comfortable, had enough room of their own to enjoy whereever we stayed, and be able to focus on enjoying the trip. I took pictures so that I could reference them in the future if I ever have to come back to the city on business. That way, I can pull up the post to remember if I liked my stay or not.
Unless you like interior design or pictures of hotels, there probably isn’t a lot for you to see in this post. This post is for my own future reference whenever I return to Denver on business so I can see what the hotel was like. In any event, after the windmill farms of Kansas, it is welcome respite to see civilization.
Bottom line: I can tell I’m going to enjoy the hotel. It’s beautiful, clean, and the staff has already proven to be excellent. I’ll feel at home here. The bedroom isn’t nearly as nice as my own house but it will do for the couple of days I’m in town. The room rates were a good bargain at between $400 and $500 per night (I didn’t get a suite since I will only be here for two days, but those are only $600 to $700 per night if I ever find myself back in Denver on an extended stay). I can’t think of a reason to try any other hotel on future visits. I’m satisfied.
