Oyster Hotel Review
An upscale business chain with subtle Colorado influences
The Hyatt Regency sits among other Denver high-rises, but is one of the only downtown hotels of its stature. It's the eighth tallest building in Denver, with 38 stories and over 1,000 rooms. It's not just tall; the hotel is almost a city unto itself, covering almost an entire city block and housing three dining venues and a cavernous lobby.
The decor of the hotel is classy and understated, with warm neutrals and subtle local influences. The grand lobby mimics Colorado's scenery, with marble and granite floors, a tinkling waterfall, and warm wood accents. Some of the local art directly relates to the location as well, including the sculpture of a man climbing up a stone accent wall.
The Hyatt Regency's rooms are contemporary and understated, with flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. All of its rooms are hypo-allergenic, and go through a rigorous FDA approval process.
Bathrooms in the standard rooms have granite countertops, but older porcelain tubs and outdated showerheads. The suites have luxurious updated bathrooms with double sinks and stand-alone bathtubs.
- All rooms are put through a rigorous hypo-allergic purification process, with recertification every six months.

Three food venues and an on-site 24/7 coffee shop
Altitude, an upscale fine dining restaurant, serves three meals a day, including both buffet and a la carte breakfast options. The menu focuses on local favorites and comfort foods.
Light fare and cocktails are available at both Peaks Lounge -- which has floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Rocky Mountains -- and Strata Bar, a big, open space on the ground floor with several TVs broadcasting sports games.
