I had a conference to attend in Denver last week and spent a night at the Grand Hyatt Denver. It’s a short walk to the Colorado Convention Center and I enjoyed my brief time at the hotel.

Anthony’s Take: The hotel is large and modern. Every employee I met was friendly and genuinely wanted to assist. The suite I was assigned had a nice view of the city and offered tons of space. Unfortunately, the Club Lounge is still closed from the pandemic with no date set for reopening. Overall, the hotel is modern and offers everything a business or leisure traveler would want or need.

Grand Hyatt Denver Rate


My company booked me an Executive Suite on a negotiated conference rate (well below Standard Rates). The hotel is a Category 3 property and room redemptions range from 9,000 to 15,000 per night when redeeming World of Hyatt points for a standard room.

Transportation to/from the Hotel

I took an Uber Comfort from Denver International Airport (DEN). The approximately 21-mile ride took 35 minutes and cost $78.27. I returned to the airport the next evening in the same way and at a similar cost.

The hotel is conveniently located near the Colorado Convention Center. It’s also not too far from museums, the Denver Zoo, and other tourist attractions. There are also lots of stores and restaurants nearby.

Grand Hyatt Denver Check-In


I arrived at the hotel around 4:00 PM and my suite was ready. The agent checking me in was friendly and efficient. She explained that the Club Lounge was closed, but that I could have whatever I wanted for breakfast from the lobby-level market and restaurant called Courier. She offered me late checkout (which I accepted).

She also told me that I was upgraded to a VIP Suite (I had already seen this in the app). I was offered bottled water and I had my keys printed a few seconds later.

It’s total BS that Hyatt still has so many lounges closed because of the pandemic. Why can’t they just be honest and say we’re cutting this benefit and the closure has nothing to do with COVID? Only one Hyatt I stayed at with a closed lounge did something for Globalists – they had a ‘convenience’ store type set up in the lobby where Globalists could just take whatever they wanted. It was actually pretty great. That said, it was just one hotel compare to the half a dozen other Hyatts I’ve been to in the past 12 months that offered nothing except an empty apology.
