Downtown Denver business chain with upscale Colorado influences
The Grand Hyatt has all the trappings of a typical business chain, but with a Colorado twist in the form of wood paneling, rich wood accents, granite tile floors, leather furniture, and Colorado themed photos and paintings. The dramatic wood front desk, the offering of fruit-infused water, and huge lobby fireplace all set the tone for an upscale experience -- but the scale, bare white ceilings in the lobby, and bright lighting make the overall feel more impersonal than intimate.
Located in downtown Denver, within walking distance of major Denver attractions
The Grand Hyatt is located in downtown Denver, within walking distance of many of the city's most popular attractions, such as the Colorado Convention Center and the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall. Nearby hotels include the Magnolia Hotel, Hilton Garden Inn, and the Hyatt Regency.
Other attractions in the vicinity include the Denver Mint; the State Capitol Building; Coors Field; numerous restaurants; and microbreweries, for which Denver is famous.
Comfortable rooms with plush bedding and great views of the city
The Grand Hyatt's rooms are almost 400 square feet, with signature Hyatt bedding, including pillow-top mattresses. Colorado themed pictures, the warm, neutral colors, and the leather accents add a distinctly Colorado feel, and the bathrooms come with shower/tub combos and massaging showerheads. Dogs are allowed in some rooms (for an extra fee), while other rooms are hypoallergenic, with air purification systems. Many rooms have great views of the Denver skyline or of the Rocky Mountains.
A modern fitness center, an indoor pool, and American fare at 1876
This four-pearl business chain in Denver's Central Business District is perfectly pleasant, but lacks wow factor. The decor in the 516 rooms is mostly generic, with a few subtle Colorado influences (such as muted checkered pillow covers and Colorado themed pictures), and views are of the city or the mountains beyond. The hotel's restaurant, 1876, serves quality contemporary American cuisine, and the indoor pool, though on the small side, adjoins an outdoor deck with a Jacuzzi.
