Minutes from downtown Denver yet in a world of its own, this 390-room mountain resort has a captivating backdrop in the majestic Rocky Mountains. The exterior is all non-nonsense modernity, while inside there’s a ski lodge vibe in the warm earthy tones and cozy fireplaces. The full-service Mokara Spa offers pampering treatments for men and women, along with a host of salon services, and there are two outdoor pools and a hot tub open year-round. New American cuisine is the prevailing theme at the five dining rooms, which range from lobster at the romantic Meritage dining room to handcrafted brews and sliders at The Tap Room and Terrace. There’s also a café, poolside grill, and seasonal golf clubhouse.
In the Area
While the resort can arrange a host of outdoor activities nearby, you can also explore the world’s largest single-site brewery on a free Coors Brewery Tour, which highlights the famous company’s malting, brewing and packaging processes. Then marvel at the area’s local beauty at Red Rocks, a natural amphitheater in a unique transitional zone where the Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains, or take in the (simulated) night sky at the Fiske Planetarium, with its surround sound, amazing visuals, and 65 foot diameter screen.
How to Get There
Stayed here for 3 nights for a family get together. Paid a little extra for mountain view - well worth it. The room was very comfortable, but quite outdated. While outdated, it was also very well maintained, clean and not shabby at all. I particularly like the staff . Everyone, without fail was friendly, pleasant and helpful. I only ate breakfast there as I was with family most of the time. The food was wonderful, but quite overpriced. If I had a car I would have looked for breakfast elsewhere. They do have a small snack area in the morning where you can get pastries and such, but I like a cooked breakfast .
For the cost of a night's stay at this hotel, I was underwhelmed on the quality of the rooms and services provided. The convention center is nice and the catering staff was great. However, as a hotel guest I was unimpressed by the older hotel rooms that did not have any recent updates such as USB outlets, an alarm clock that can hook up to a smart phone, or more than a few channels of HD television. These wouldn't be deal breakers if I was spending $70/night at the La Quinta down the road, but I do think it is a factor when you're paying more than twice that. The walls were relatively thin so it was easy to hear faucets and showers running from your neighbors. The service at the Meritage during breakfast was always slow and the servers seemed unattentive, even when it wasn't busy. The last time I had breakfast it took 10 minutes for a server to offer me coffee and then walked away before I could place an order. If you're willing to spend this much on a hotel room, I think you should check out a facility nearby that has done a better job with the "small things" that make a big difference as a guest.
Do not hold business meetings here, run the other direction. The food service is awful. The catering between seminars was barely acceptable. The restaurant food was again marginal. The service in the restaurant was horrible. The food took forever to arrive. If one person laughs at the table, the whole table is cut off. As a host of the dinner, to have 10 clients sitting around the table staring at glasses of water for 45 minutes was really bad. We were part of a 300 person meeting where all 300 people were staying at the hotel. Restaurant was inconsistent with other areas of the hotel and poorly managed.
