There are plenty of big hotels in downtown Denver with conventional, narrow, no-frills hotel rooms, but few that offer amenities like kitchens and small living and working spaces. So when Hyatt Place and Hyatt House Denver/Downtown opened in November, 2015, offering just that, it was a welcome addition.
The property is split down the middle and connected in a spacious lobby and bar, with Hyatt Place on one side ("unfussy conveniences for the business and tech-savvy traveler") and Hyatt House on the other ("a residentially-inspired, extended stay hub for short- or long-term stays").
The 361-room property is one of the 10 largest in the downtown area and is walking distance from many of the city's attractions, including the Colorado Convention Center, B-cycle Station, and pedestrian mall. Breakfast is included and is served in a wide, open-plan breakfast area. Rates were reasonable when I stayed in early December ($149 per night), but do vary during the year, so check before reserving.
