Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great downtown location, close to the Colorado Convention Center
  • Indoor lap pool and Jacuzzi
  • Solid fitness center with modern machines
  • 32-inch flat-screen TV in every room
  • Pi Kitchen + Bar, a contemporary fusion restaurant
  • DazBog coffee shop
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

Bottom Line

The Hilton Garden Inn Downtown is a mid-range property in downtown Denver, near the Colorado Convention Center and 16th Street Pedestrian Mall. Its 221 rooms are large and clean, if generic, with adjustable beds, ergonomic desk chairs, 32-inch flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. There is a coffee shop and a decent contemporary fusion restaurant, as well as a 24-hour business center and meeting spaces, which should appeal to business travelers. The indoor pool, though unexceptional, is nonetheless a nice extra for a hotel of this caliber -- and an amenity that the nearby Curtis Denver Hotel lacks.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Bright and clean, with a few stylish touches

The lobby at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown, with its floor-to-ceiling windows and almost sterile white floors, gives a good sense of what one can expect from the rest of the hotel -- cleanliness, spaciousness, and contemporary, but generic, style.

While the room decor could use some updating, there are nice touches throughout the hotel. In the lobby, for instance, there's an attractive two-sided fireplace, as well as nooks containing brightly colored glasswork that offsets the bare walls. Another appealing feature is the Garden Inn's unique Colorado-oriented take on art: brightly painted, nearly life-sized sculptures of cows on some floors.

 Location

Centrally located in downtown Denver, the Hilton Garden Inn is one of the closest hotels to the Colorado Convention Center.

The Hilton Garden Inn Downtown is close to the Colorado Convention Center and the 16th-Street Pedestrian Mall, and within walking distance to many of the city's other popular attractions. Embassy Suites, Hyatt Regency, and the Magnolia Hotel are nearby.

Other attractions in the vicinity include the Denver Mint; the State Capitol Building; Coors Field; numerous restaurants; and microbreweries, for which Denver is famous.

 Rooms

Large, clean rooms with typical chain decor

The rooms are spacious and clean, although the decor is unexceptional -- busy carpets and run-of-the-mill wood furniture. They all have microwaves and mini-fridges, however, which are not always available in downtown Denver properties. Other notable amenities include the ergonomic desk chair by Herman Miller; and the Garden Sleep System beds, which have mattresses that adjust for hardness and body contours. The bathrooms have shower/tub combos with Waterpik showerheads.

 Features

An indoor pool, a solid fitness center, and a fusion restaurant

The Hilton Garden Inn Downtown has a DazBog coffee shop, an indoor pool (a nice extra for a hotel in this category), and a solid fitness center. Pi Kitchen + Bar offers an all-day menu including afternoon tapas, with a contemporary fusion cuisine combining local and global influences.

 Bottom Line

The Hilton Garden Inn Downtown is a mid-range property in downtown Denver, near the Colorado Convention Center and 16th Street Pedestrian Mall. Its 221 rooms are large and clean, if generic, with adjustable beds, ergonomic desk chairs, 32-inch flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi.
