During our recent trip to Mile High City, we decided to stay at the Ritz-Carlton Denver for a few nights. We are avid Bonvoy points collectors and so we try to say somewhere in the Marriott family of hotels when we travel.
The Ritz Carlton Denver is in a great location. It’s just a short walk to the 16th Street Mall, Larimer Square and Union Station. In fact, aside from our ride into town from the airport, we walked everywhere.
Also, it’s within reasonable walking distance from Union Station, if you are going to take the train into town. If you aren’t renting a car, we highly recommend this option if you are arriving during rush hour. It will be much faster and much more cost effective. Click here for all the details.
Our room was really spacious with a large bathroom that had both a stand up shower and a bath tub. The rooms are really comfortable and quiet. We even slept in later than we have in years.
Unfortunately, our room didn’t have the best view, but it’s not like we were there to spend time looking out the window.
Food and Drinks
For food and drinks, they have Elway’s, their signature restaurant. It is named after NFL Hall of Fame Inductee and former Denver Bronco John Elway. We didn’t stop by for a meal but we did stop by for drinks and appetizers. The food seemed really good. Someone at the able next to us
They also had in-room service available but we didn’t get the chance to take advantage of it. That’s because there’s too many great food options available.
I am pleased to say that we did take advantage of the fitness facility. It’s not always the case, but with all the delicious food it was a necessity. Their gym is great. Pretty spacious with plenty of cardio machines, all in excellent condition. Probably one of the best hotel gyms that we’ve seen. And, the best part was that it wasn’t busy at all when I went.
Also, the Ritz is located next to a TruFit Fitness Club, with group fitness classes and much more if the hotel one doesn’t meet your needs. I believe that they even have an indoor climbing wall.
And, the service was impeccable and everyone very helpful. The Ritz Carlton Denver, we will definitely be back.
Wary Travelers Tip
If you are packing for your first trip to Denver, pack layers. While we were there the weather went from 84 degrees one day to 27 and snow the next. Apparently, this is not uncommon for them to experience weather shifts like this.
