Excellent location to down town Denver

Pros: The bar and dining room staff, and lonny stay were great. We also enjoyed the use of their car to pick us up after dinner and to our party
Cons: Housekeeping and room service
Location: The 17th street mall is wonderful and within walking distance.
This hotel did not live up to the Ritz standards I have been use to at their other properties. Upon arrival our room did not have two bathrobes, any slippers and not tissues. No turndown service was given on our first day of stay even though we called guest services to request it. The cleanest of the floor was questionable. It was New Year's Eve and the next day there was trash on the elevator lobbies which was not cleaned until the second. We order room service twice during our stay and was told the wait time was one to one and a half hours.

Pros: Location and the Excellent Concierge.
Cons: Service,anticipation of the needs of the guest.Timeliness of response to requests. Compassion from staff. Correct and up to date information from Spa
Location: Downtown Denver
This property has the potential to be among the finest in the Ritz-Carlton portfolio, however if the maintenance of this property is any indication of where the Ritz-Carlton brand is headed, I am relieved the Four Seasons is only a few blocks away. Arrival was relatively uneventful, it was disappointing that the hotel restaurant Elways and room service were closed down relatively early considering the star level of the hotel and the day of the week. The service was prompt, but curt. Further, the simple request made in the online booking was neither accommodated or acknowledged. I was surprised to find the disrepair of the actual room itself. I was shocked, literally, while trying to turn the switch of a lamp on. The bulb blew and there was a odor. Due to the time of day the room was completely dark and movement was hindered. Upon request for another room, the front desk staff was not too pleasant or accommodating. I had to ask three times to be moved to another room, desk staff ignored the first time I requested, argued with me at second request and finally agreed at the third demand. While medical assistance was offered, the desk staff did not seem to be bothered by the hazard.

not as great as the price

Pros: nothing in particular
It was fine, but I did expect more for the price. We never did figure out why we had 1 cup for coffee when there were three of us in the room and 5 coffee pods to make. the room was clean and convenient. The staff was very friendly and good other than housekeeping who were not very responsive.

Great hotel

Pros: Clean, Centrally located..... Being driven by the valets when you needed a ride to a local restaurant/event.
This was a NICE Ritz Carlton. The massages were great in the spa. Not to over the top. They didn't have our requested room due to a weather incident and more people staying. Know the rooms aren't guaranteed on travelocity. We had to get another room, but the hotel gave it to us for only $100 a night (way lower than their normal price).

Best Hotel Ever!!'

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, excellent customer service, great and speedy room service, great chocolate's placed in your room every night, very clean, great smell throughout hotel, everyone's friendly
From the moment we drove up till we drove away on our last day, we received the BEST customer service ever. We were met immediately at our car when we drove up. Bags were taken out of our car for us. We then went inside with the warmest welcome at the concierge desk. Checked in and felt so welcome as we took the elevator to our luxurious room. The hotel was fabulous and I will always look for this hotel chain in which ever city I'm in. I will always treasure this hotel experience. Elways is amazing too! The food is delicious, especially the stake! The customer service there was amazing as well. I truly have not one single complaint about this hotel or the restaurant in it :-) Worth EVERY penny!! Also you are just a few blocks from many restaurants - walking distance. Also there are many Starbucks in very close walking distance. My last word about the Ritz Carlton is AMAZING!!

For fun its great, for value it awful.

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: No free Internet, Poor breakfast, awful toilet paper, excessive parking fees
The Hotel was great. I enjoyed my stay. However, for the price paid there are many things lacking. There is a charge for wireless internet.You would expect a five diamond hotel to provide free wireless internet, Motel Six does. Some amenities are lacking. The toilet paper is something you would find in a gas station bathroom you are reluctantly forced to use. A basic continental breakfast which is usually free at all motels costs $28 here, yikes. There is also an untold $27 daily parking fee added to your stay at the end. With all this said, I did enjoy my stay very much. The staff was great, very professional and friendly. The Hotel room and Hotel itself was very clean and nice. The hotel provides a driver for a 5 mile range which was very helpful. Although there are some areas left open for improvement, overall I did enjoy my stay.

Pros: service!
Front start to finish, we were treated like royalty. My grandson loved that they remembered his name. It feels like a cozy boutique hotel. Great room service. Have the lamb chop appetizer for a late night snack.
