Fodor's Expert Review Grand Hyatt Denver

1750 Welton St., Denver, Colorado 80202, USA See on Map

A premium Hyatt brand, the Grand Hyatt Denver boasts 516 rooms (including 27 suites). Take in awesome views of Pikes Peak, downtown, and the entire Front Range from the Pinnacle Club on the 38th floor. Many accessible features are provided in-room and throughout the hotel, including online check-in. This property also offers extensive options for both business meeting space and weddings.

room

Rooms are airy and white, with pops of color found in leather chairs and decorative elements, such as pillows. Suites are exactly double the square footage of standard rooms. All rooms provide free WiFi, a laptop safe, and 24-hour room service. The hotel is dog-friendly (for a fee). Grand Club rooms give access to private dining room with complimentary food and beverage.

Because the hotel mainly traffics in business travelers and special events, leisure travelers can often find excellent weekend rates.

bathroom

Bathrooms have a standard vanity, lighted mirror, either a tub or an oversized stall shower, and include spa-worthy bath products. Suite bathrooms have a double vanity, oversized tub, and separate large stall shower.

lobby

The stone fireplaces, giant rocks, and branches used in the decor are elements reminiscent of Colorado’s great outdoors—both the mountains to the west and dusty plains to the east. The bar is part of the open floor plan of the lobby space. A Starbucks, 24-hour FedEx, and sandwich shop are in the adjoining building, just across the covered valet line.

pool

The indoor heated pool and surrounding area are large, and plenty of seating is provided. When the weather permits, guests are able to sit out on the adjoining rooftop deck and soak up the sun before returning inside for a dip.

gym

The rooftop facility is a veritable fitness wonderland, with an impressive outdoor track, tennis courts, and shuffleboard. The 24/7 indoor fitness center is stocked with weights, cardio, and other strength-training machinery.

dining

Beyond 24-hour room service, a fully kosher kitchen is used for catering and events. The hotel’s main floor restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner and the ground floor Starbucks is large for an urban location.

drinking

Fireside | The Bar, also on the lobby level, has a small, L-shaped bar top that becomes a community table. Oversized chairs, sofas, bar height leather stools, and plush ottomans round out the bountiful seating options.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Valet parking is available on-site or self-parking can be found in nearby lots and garages. It’s a 3-minute walk to either the nearest 16th Street MallRide shuttle stop or the 18th & California light rail station, and one mile from Union Station.

Restaurants

For a Denver classic with a lot of history, try the Mexican fare at La Loma (4-minute walk). Appaloosa Grill (3-minute walk) is a dining and entertainment local gem serving American fare, much of it locally sourced, on the 16th Street Mall. For steak or wine, the swanky Guard and Grace (3-minute walk) also has a raw bar and late-night dining.

Bars

Almost any night of the week, music lovers can grab a drink and snacks and then catch live jazz, soul, singer/songwriters, or learn to line dance or sing karaoke at Live at Jack’s (6-minute walk). Churchill’s (5-minute walk), inside the Brown Palace, is one of few places in town where you can smoke or buy cigars and find a substantial assortment of scotches and bourbons.

WHY WE LIKE IT

With their outdoor roof setup, the Grand Hyatt Denver has the most interesting hotel gym in all of Denver. Because the hotel mostly sees high-traffic business stays during the week, this property is a good option for a quiet family stay on weekends. Located in Denver’s financial district, the Grand Hyatt is surrounded by bustling urban foot and automobile traffic during the week and then a much calmer, quieter streetscape on weekends. The hotel is a short walk to the Colorado Convention Center and the 16th Street Mall.
