The Westin Denver Downtown, conveniently located next to the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall, is quite like a Westin anywhere, with contemporary but generic rooms and a bevy of solid amenities. Chief among those is a heated indoor/outdoor pool with sundeck that offers lovely views of Downtown Denver and the Rockies far off in the distance. The pool is part of the hotel's impressive fitness center, which features state-of-the-art machines, Pilates equipment and DVDs, a half-basketball court, and Runner's World Maps. The Westin also offers a variety of dining options (including a Palm steakhouse on-site), 32,000 square feet of meeting space, and a nightly Unwind Hour where guests receive free local microbrews and spa amenities. The Hyatt Regency Denver is and Grand Hyatt Denver offer comparable hotel experiences, so it's worth comparing rates.
