Review Highlights

“This hotel is very nice! Has a restaurant and bar! Also has on outdoor pool and a gym. Since it’s in the heart of downtown there is so much to do! One of the things is go shopping – it’s around many of the shops including an outdoor mall. The hotel itself is very clean with nice beds and bathrooms. The convention center is in walking distance. We enjoyed our stay!”

“Stayed with a party of 10 from the UK for a boys sports long weekend. Location of the hotel is fantastic, short walk or free bus ride from the train station. Some good drinking and eating spots close by too. All sports stadiums are in close proximity to this hotel. Rooms are more than adequate and found the beds incredibly comfortable. The breakfast, bar and snack area were fantastic but what really helps this hotel is its staff who are friendly, courteous and made us feel very welcome. If staying in Denver again I would book again.”

“We decided to try out the hotel here due to its great location – so near everything! We were so glad we did. Right at check-in, we knew it was going to be a good stay. The people were so friendly, helpful, and professional, unlike other hotels we’ve been to. We really appreciated the attitudes! We had a view looking towards Pikes Peak and the Capital building. The room was nice and most important, quiet! The bar was also very nice on the ground floor, with a number of different areas to sit at so you could choose your mood, so to speak. We would stay here again!! Kudos”

“I was greeted with a warm smile and a luggage tag waiting for me with my name on it – what a nice touch. I received an upgraded room on a higher floor. Connor was professional and kind. The bartender, Rick, makes great drinks; I recommend the French 75. The room was clean and spacious for two guests. I will stay here again!”

“Abby was our bartender in the hotel bar and she made us great drinks (including a smoke-infused Old Fashioned!) and was really helpful as far as tips for restaurants around town. She advised a vegan member of our group that a restaurant he found on Yelp was actually a restaurant that specialized in pork. We didn’t listen, and she was right. :)”

“If you are looking for the best Old Fashion in your life – go to this place. Get either Chuck or Abbey to make you one – it looks like such a pain in the butt to make (they literally light a piece of wood on fire) but they taste so good and Chuck and Abbey were over-the-top friendly and made you feel like you were in your home town bar.”

“We felt right at home in the Sonesta Denver Downtown hotel. Yaelemi was absolutely fantastic!!! She went out of her way to make us happy, tell us about local events and restaurants. We will definitely come back and hope she’s still here.”

“This hotel is in a great location – walking distance from most of the touristy things and we could see the capital building from our window. The staff was very nice and they followed all COVID safety protocols. As someone who stays hotels often, this is one of my favorites!”
