Well, My B&B fell through, so I had to book a more expensive option. I will be staying at the Hyatt Regency downtown. Price went from 360 for the b&b to over $1000 for the Hyatt. The only thing I hate about Denver is the lack of clean, affordable motels in the downtown area. All have gotten bad reviews.
That's okay. I wanted to stay at the Hyatt anyway. Anyone stayed there?

I thought you already had the B&B booked? What happened?
As for Hyatt, that is very expensive!!!!!!!

Since I live here I do not know much about hotels, but I am sure there are many good ones not too far from downtown. Perhaps maybe father a way but near a light rail/bus route.

The reservation was lost and someone else booked the room. that's okay. I don't really want to do the hyatt because it costs so much money. I am looking at the Melbourne Hostel. Supposedly it's in a rough part of downtown. 607 22nd Street
Denver, CO 80205. have you heard of that?

80205 is big and yeah that area (not too far from the B&B) is not great. I would not stay there. Hopefully others have more info and knowladge of hotels in Denver.

As I mentioned, I'd find a hotel in a nice area that has light rail or bus route. I Looked at few at hotels.com and found $50-70 hotels in nice areas. That is nowhere near $1000.
Found one "Hotel Denver Tech Center" for $52.50/night for the time frame you said you will be here in the original post. it is "One block from RTD Light Rail Station." See: http://www.hotels.com/property.do?CO...=2008&CIDay=22

So check hotels.com Sort hotels by price and call these $50-70 hotels and ask if they have bus/light rail station near them.

The farther you go, the price for the lightrail/bus is getting expensive but still great savings over a hotel right downtown. Plus, I think you will enjoy seeing the city from lightrail or bus as well.

Thanks coloweb. I will look into that. I was shying away from the tech center and such because I thought it would be too far from downtown Denver. I will see though. Thanks again

Here is another one "Crossland Denver-Cherry Creek" for $55/night. It is on Leetsdale where I know you can catch bus 83 and 83L (used it daily for a few years) that goes right to Downtown (Civic Center Station). http://www.hotels.com/property.do?CO...=2008&CIDay=22

Thanks. I looked it up and it's got great rates, but it hasen't gotten very good reviews. I won't be in my room very often, so should I really be concerned about dirtiness?

Over the area of B&B and the 80205, this one would be great IMO. I drove by that hotel few times (if that is the one I am thinking of) and most of the time they have a good number of people there. Leetsdale is a nice area. And Crossland is not a bad chain as far as I know. Again, I'd pick it over the B&B or 80205 area. But that is me and each person has their own standard and preferance (I am just fine with Motel 6 or Super 8 while I know others who pay much more but stay somewhere else).

It is not too far form Super Target if you need anything (since the rooms there have "Kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, and stovetop"). As one who travels a lot in the summers, I think it is a great deal.

As mentioned, I do not know much about hotels in Denver as I never needed one (Which is a good think heh ) but others may be able to give more info or provide other ones that they know of.

Thanks very much. I appreciate your help very much. maybe I'll call the CVB tomorrow. last time I called and told them some hotels have 21+ check in, they seemed confused. I didn't know that either until I started looking around awhile back. that severly limits my choices.

here are the reviews for the Crossland Cherry Creek. I read them and am shying away from this one. Sounds to bad to stay there.

You are very welcome, I am glad to help. You are right about the 21+ thing. Check ahead of time to make sure that is fine. I had such an issue when I visited San Diego and was not able to check in to my reserved room.

As for reviews, maybe you are right. I honestly do not know. Search and see what you find and lets see if others can comment and help you out too.

Good luck.
