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.
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.
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.
There is lots of seating throughout the lobby and a three-level fireplace to give it a cozy feel.
Tables, couches, chairs and more options offer lots of space to relax and work.
A computer and printer were found in the lobby for guest use.
A microwave and condiments were also available for guests.
The elevators were found just a few steps from check-in.
The elevator lobby upstairs was wood paneled. A lot of the hotel has a masculine feel.
The hallways were clean and the carpets looked fairly new.
VIP Suite (2607)
There are 516 rooms (including 27 suites) at the hotel.
A banquette and dining table are on the left side when entering the room.
An ice bucket, Keurig, coffee pods, cups, and condiments were near the door.
The Keurig offered both tea and coffee pods.
The refrigerator was below. It was empty for guest use.
The living area made up the rest of this room. It included a couch, chairs, and a coffee table.
A large TV was mounted on the wall across from the couch.
The bedroom was to the right. It had a king-sized bed, nightstands, and a bench near the window.
Closets were found on both sides of the large TV mounted here. The first closet held a robe, iron, ironing board, and blanket.
The second closet held an umbrella and luggage rack.
A safe was found on the bottom shelf.
The view overlooked some of the many tall buildings around the hotel.
I liked the Lutron switches throughout the suite.
The bathroom was located to the right of the bedroom.
The vanity had a single sink and a huge, well-lit mirror.
Balmain body lotion and soap, mouthwash, and toothpaste were on the left side.
A large, glassed-in shower was to the right.
Large, wall-mounted bottles of Balmain shampoo, conditioner, and body wash were in the shower.
A toilet was on the opposite wall.
Public Areas & Amenities
The hotel has a fitness center, a lobby restaurant and convenience store, an ATM, a rooftop pool, a tennis court, and a running track.
The running tack, tennis court, pool, and fitness center were on the fourth floor.
Courier is the restaurant/convenience store.
It has lots of grab-and-go items, a full bar, and a menu for sit-down meals.
An ATM was found nearby.
The hotel texted me shortly after I arrived and again when it was time to checkout. I appreciate the proactive outreach.
The Grand Hyatt Denver is a great location for conferences or exploring the city. It has lots of amenities, a friendly staff, and comfortable accommodations.
