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
We stayed here for a weekend pleasure trip, 3 nights, in mid July. Used on line booking directly thru Omni. Lots of different room prices due to sizes, views, with or w/o balcony, to choose from if you book well in advance of your trip. We reserved one of the better rooms, mountain view with balcony. A day before arrival we were invited to advance check in on line, we did so, and our key was waiting for us at far end of front desk - very quick and easy to pick up key and head to room.
This is a very large hotel that caters to both conventions / business meetings during the week and on weekends to families. It has a number of restaurants, spas, two pools and hot tub in pool area, golf course, etc. We visited the pool area a couple of times - very nice. Drinks from bar a bit weak and not very tasty, but overall great relaxation in pool area.
Convenient location to highway, easy to get to Denver, Boulder, near by restaurants, etc. Just 10-15 minute drive and you are "in the mountains". Many mountain roads to drive on - good condition - great views and scenic. In July mountain tops still had snow on them.
Very large and spacious lobby. Elevators are quick.
Our room appeared to be pretty clean, but looked old and dated. Places where it was banged up, and carpet and fixtures looked old. Old stains in bathroom, etc.
Our mountain view was good, but the hotel is quite a distance from mountains and there are lots of buildings and roads between hotel and mountains. One night we could not enjoy balcony due to constant (over an hour) long loud car tire squealing, loud revving of engines, street racing, etc... on near by streets between hotel and highway. This was not the hotel's fault - but i have to assume this is not the first time this group of loud cars has done this. Not sure why local police were not aware or allow this to occur?
Parking was good - most times had to park 200 feet from main lobby door - not too bad
Overall quiet hallways and rooms - guests seem to be business people or families, and the families with small children we encountered were respectful, quiet, etc.
Check out was quick - did so on line - just dropped keys into box.
We have stayed in many nicer / newer hotels from Hampton, Hilton Garden Inn, etc... that have nicer guest rooms - but they don't have the extras this resort does.
We stayed in a large roomy one bedroom suite. It was very comfortable and we had a great view of the mountains. There were a lot of conferences at the hotel. We stayed here because of the great pools and hot tub. We had a 4 year old with us and she likes to swim. It was unseasonably cold but the hot tub was great and one of the pools was heated. Staff was very pleasant and helpful.
We have stayed here twice for two separate vacations and have very much enjoyed both visits. We would happily stay again! The rooms are comfortable, the staff are friendly and helpful. You can easily relax all day in the pool area.
