Good & Safe Denver Hotel Recommendations for Family

by k9roo

We will be in Denver for an extended weekend next month and I am trying to decide where to stay. There will be a child with us so I need to be sure the area is safe. We will be flying in and renting a car at the airport. We will be going to a Bronco game on Sunday and to the Aquarium one day. Not sure what we will do the rest of the time we are there as I'm not sure what all is there to do.

Anyway, I have been trying to decide whether to go through Hotwire or Priceline as I have heard you can get some great deals. They will not tell you the name of the Hotel until after you pay but we can pick the the star rating and the area. The problem is I don't know which areas to pick whether we go through one of these are just book a room on our own. Here are the choices.

Cherry Creek
Denver Airport
Denver Southwest
Northwest Denver
Northeast Denver
Denver West
Denver Downtown
Northglenn - Thornton
Tech Center North
Tech Center South
Westminster - Broomfield

We will stay at a 3 star or above hotel but which area would you choose if you flew into Denver, planning a Bronco game, visiting the Aquarium, will have a rental car plus we will have an 8 year old child with us.

Since you'll have a car, I say Cherry Creek.
I typically stay in the Tech Center area because almost all the hotels are within walking distance of a light rail station and it's a good neighborhood, but almost exclusively offices. But, if you have a car and don't have to rely on public transit, it's not as a big of a deal. Tech Center also has some very cheap hotels through Hotwire. Last summer I stayed about a week at the Homestead on Quebec (near Bellevue), which is literally next door to a light rail station, and it was $26/night before taxes. I tried to get it this time, but ended up with the ESA Deluxe for $29. It's a little further from the light rail, but still walkable.
But Cherry Creek is a much nicer area with tons of restaurants and shopping within walking distance. It's also more central so you won't have to drive as much. You'll likely get one of the properties along Colorado Blvd near I-25 through Hotwire.
When you go to the Broncos game, consider parking at the University of Denver or Alameda station and taking the light rail in. The train goes right to the stadium and it may be cheaper than parking at the stadium, and you would not have to deal with the traffic getting in and out.

Thank you so much!

Is the Homestead on Quebec (near Bellevue) a good place to stay with a child? I like the prices a lot better.

I don't see why not. It's not like it's full of drug addicts, if that's what you mean. No hotels in the Tech Center are close to anything that a child would like to see or do, although your kid may enjoy the ride in on the light rail. If you stay in the Tech Center, don't expect to spend a lot of time there. There are good restaurants, but nothing to really see or do.

Travel Tips for Denver

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

The newspapers are your source of local, world, business, sports, and weather information. In Denver we have two competing dailies - The Rocky Mountain News and The Denver Post, both morning papers. The Rocky Mountain News tends to be more Conservative while the Post (my favorite) is more liberal. The News publishes Monday through Saturday while the Post is Sunday through Friday. Both are 50 cents daily except for the Sunday Post - one dollar. The third major paper is a free weekly that highlights the music and cultural events in the Denver metro area. This is the Westword that hits the newstands on Thursdays, your guide to the cultural and musical events occuring during your stay.

Denver's a Healthy but Private City

by whirledpeas0621

First of all, the people in Denver love their outdoor activites. In the winter, most everyone goes up to the mountains to ski or snowboard, and during the summer, people bike and run. The people in Denver love to watch their football and hockey, but they're not really into baseball or basketball. Popular sports to play here are golf, tennis, and even lacrosse and rugby. It's interesting, though, because even though people are active in Denver, it's also spread out, so people drive almost everywhere (almost no one walks to where they're going). There's beautiful scenery in the mountains to the west, Rocky Mountain National Park to the north, and Garden of the Gods to the south.

The city of Denver is heavily populated with Hispanics, and many Denver people speak at least a little Spanish. There's also a semi-large Asian population, but few other minority groups are adequately represented in Denver. Denver people are also very polite and are always willing to say hello.

On the downside, although the city itself is semi-liberal and young, the suburbs house very "uppity" people. Colorado is a Republican state, and people here love large corporations and large automobiles! Most stores and restaurants are corporate-owned, so there's not too much you can find that is unique to Denver (espeically in the suburbs). Most people drive SUVs, and although Denver is a small city, the highways are always packed.

All in all, the Denver area is a beautiful place to visit, and there's a lot of naturally-occuring scenery that you shouldn't miss. If you go to Denver, don't miss the mountains! As for the food and shopping, though, Denver is probably near the bottom of that list!

Rockies baseball

by pchamlis

When in Denver, baseball fans should take the opportunity to visit Coors Field and take in a Colorado Rockies baseball game. This "mile high" stadium is comfortable and cozy, and you'll have a great seat no matter where you sit.

Plenty of ice cold Coors brew for your drinking pleasure, too.

The Rockies kind of stink lately, but a trip to the ol' ball game is always fun, win or lose. This sporting tip involves viewing, not playing. Just get enough money to buy a ticket or two, and a few beers. Head over to Coors and have a ball.

I suppose you COULD bring a glove in case you have a foul ball hit your way in the stands. But we all know that the only people who catch foul balls at baseball games never have baseball gloves. : )

BTW, the stadium is located at the intersection of Blake and 20th streets. Back when the Rockies were pretty good, they were often called the Blake Street Bombers. Now, thanks to their anemic pitching staff, they mostly get bombed. ; )
