(As it ends up, on the days of my stay, it was hotter in Denver than in Texas. Go figure.) G.M. asked about my alcohol preferences. I replied that I never drink alcohol, as my mother tells me it kills brain cells. He replied that he should have followed my mother's advice, but now it's FAR too late. I told him that it's just little old me on this trip, so I'm not using a suite upgrade. (I try to use them when family is along on the trip.) But I said that if I get a choice, I'd like a city view.

I had previously stayed in what I "thought" was the most amazing suite at the property (#2615). This time I was placed into #2612 , which is even more massive than 2615. In the room was a welcome amenity with all kinds of things to eat and drink (non-alcoholic). Everything about the stay was first-class. The staff was so gracious and welcoming. This hotel really knows the meaning of hospitality.

Come to think of it, EVERY stay at the GH Denver has been super-special and memorable, far beyond all hope or expectation. This is one of the most welcoming and accommodating hotels in the entire system.
I haven't stayed at the GH DEN for at least six years, obviously pre-renovations, so it's great to hear things are going well out there.

Yes, every stay there is first rate, I stay there about 10 times per year. As a Glob, they put me in a suite nearly every time. Club is great, and their new restaurant (Courier Kitchen) is very good.

Agree with these recent positive comments. Burned a TSU there in April and had a lovely large suite. The Grand Club is one of the best in the domestic portfolio. I also like the live music they sometimes have in the lobby bar. Convenient location for most anything in or near downtown Denver.

Just to jump on the bandwagon, yeah, this is a really solid property with great service. Club is a strong one. GM told me to save my Explorist lounge upgrade and returned it to me -- nice touch. Bar is good. On top of everything else, price is right.

I have an upcoming one night stay here and parking is more than I'd like to pay... is there a nearby lot or garage that's recommended?

There is a garage right across the street. Can't remember the details but I parked there for several nights, had no issues, and wasn't troubled by the price.

There is a lot on Welton & 18th, right behind the hotel, that I've seen hotel guests park at. If this info is current it looks like it has a $15/day max.

Thank you both.

Can anyone tell me the differences between the morning and evening offerings in the clubs at the HR vs. the GH ? We were unimpressed with the evening presentation at the HR recently.

Upon arrival I gave keys to valet staff but told them I'd be taking the car to a nearby lot for the night once bags were in the room. During check in FDC comped parking for the night because "it's only 1 night and you're Glob" which was fantastic. There is a $16 per night lot on 18th at Broadway which would have been fine because I didn't need the car until the morning heading back to the airport. A wonderful first impression.

I have no idea of the HR but this evening the food was a pork short rib, falling off the bone, no sauce, none needed, potatoes and everything that would be needed for a nice salad. The lounge seats <50 and was relatively empty, not having more than 10 guests during the hour I was there. Booze is decent and on the honor system with self pours. Will check out breakfast in the morning before heading back to DEN.

The other night in GHD club: Teryaki lollipop chicken with roasted potatoes plus an assortment of veggies both raw, baked and roasted plus dips etc. Homemade macaroons for dessert. I find HRDCC overall similar with a bit more variety, perhaps. I stay regularly at both. They are among the better Hyatt clubs I know. From a staffing standpoint, HRDCC takes the cake with manager Adrian and his personalized service. GHD just a ‘body,’ really, with little clue about hospitality.

For breakfast, I find the two clubs pretty similar.

May I ask, which Hyatt club impressed you more from a dinner presentation standpoint?

We've only stayed at the HR Convention Center. Last stay a few weeks ago all they had in the evening were some little appetizers (all the same) and cheese. We don't eat large dinners so at many Hyatt properties (such as HR San Francisco Airport and HR Maui) the evening offerings are very substantial. HR SFO offers basically an entire hot meal (entree, soup, salad, dessert, plus cheeses, etc). HR Maui offers hot appetizers (large enough for a small meal) plus salad and desserts.
