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.
In downtown Denver, across the street from the Colorado Convention Center
The hotel is right across the street from the Colorado Convention Center, and a block from the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall. Other frequented downtown attractions include the Denver Mint, the State Capitol Building, Coors Field, and Denver's renowned microbreweries.
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.
Large fitness center, a small day spa, and an indoor lap pool
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.
Perks Coffee & More is a 24-hour coffee and gift shop.
At a staggering 38 stories, the business-oriented Hyatt Regency is almost a city unto itself, with over 1,100 rooms, a large fitness center, a lap pool, and three dining venues. Rooms are upscale, if chain-like, and some offer stunning views of the Rocky Mountains.
