Hi All, I have a contract job opportunity in the Englewood area, primarily working in DTC. My plan is to initially grab an extended stay hotel room so I can get to know the area. Any thoughts on a good extended stay hotel in that area or what area(s) I should look? I'd like to be in an area with lots to do, restaurants, shopping, etc.

Thanks!

Only question is will you have a car? If so it doesn't matter much, all of them will seem about the same. There are no bad or isolated areas in this part of town. Only thing to consider for many is how bad the commute might be, but doesn't sound like you will be far from work.

FYI - The City of Englewood and the DTC aren't the same place - they're about 6 or 7 miles apart. It's just that for some reason the post office gives the Greenwood Village part of the DTC an Englewood zip code designation.* When finding a place with an "Englewood" zip code, make sure to Google map where it actually is.




*Parts of Sheridan, Greenwood Village, Centennial, Cherry Hills Village, unincorporated Arapahoe County, and unincorporated Douglas County all have Englewood zip code designations despite not being part of, or even necessarily close to, Englewood.

Yes, I plan to bring my car. Is parking typically free in that area or would I have to pay to park?
What about this "LoDo" I keep hearing about? Lower Downtown? or should I just head into the burbs?

Whatever you do, whatever you find, make sure it's not in the city of Greenwood Village.

Yes, parking in the DTC area is typically free. The only places that I know of that charge for parking are in downtown Denver.

LoDo is Lower Downtown, and is a fun place to visit. If you are going to be working in the DTC, then stay near DTC. You can always hop on the light rail and ride to downtown and LoDo. Go to the website for the Regional Transportation District to find more information on light rail lines and times.

According to the article:

"Extended-stay hotels, which represent four of the city's 13 hotels or motels, are exempt from the new law."

Ah, that's good news.

I suppose you could live in LoDo, but I'd suggest just going up there during your free time every now and then. DTC is real easy to get around, its sort of like a boring downtown. Restaurants and Starbucks are packed at noon, nearly empty at 6:30pm. But little crime and everything is new. The nighttime action is mostly elsewhere, but trains are easy to get to and you can even take them downtown as the last train on the weekend runs after the bars close.
