Bottom Line

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 Westin also offers a variety of dining options (including a Palm steakhouse on-site), 32,000 square feet of meeting space, a fitness center, and a nightly Unwind Hour where guests receive free local microbrews and spa amenities. The Hyatt Regency Denver and Grand Hyatt Denver offer comparable hotel experiences, so it's worth comparing rates.

Oyster Hotel Review


The convenient Central Business District location and extensive amenities attracts both business and leisure travelers.

Like most Westins, this hotel is well-suited for business travelers, with a convenient location in the Central Business District 32,000 square feet of meeting space, and a Palm restaurant on-site. But the Westin also is a solid choice for leisure travelers, as the location is within walking distance of most of Denver's tourist sights, including the adjacent 16th Street Pedestrian Mall, the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, and the city's many microbreweries.

The decor is contemporary and stylish (if a bit generic), featuring streamlined dark wood furniture and neutral tones. The well-equipped fitness center -- complete with an indoor/outdoor pool with excellent views of the city and mountains -- and nightly Unwind Hour are highlights.

The hotel has implemented a number of green initiatives, including energy and water conservation, waste minimization, and green housekeeping.
