TownePlace Suites Denver Airport at Gateway Park

I used this hotel primary as a place to sleep when I started my tour of Colorado. What I looked for when booking this hotel was an airport shuttle and being cheaper priced Marriott.  When I saw how cheap this hotel was with points, I used points.  The airport shuttle was another issue, which is not the hotels fault.

When I booked on the Marriott site it said the hotel had an airport shuttle, of course you needed to click through to find out that it has limited days and hours.  Ouch! I ended up having to take a taxi for $35 when I arrived, but I was able to take the shuttle back to the airport. But I’m still bitter.

As for the room, it was great!  Since this is more of an extended stay hotel the room is different than a tourist type hotel, but for it’s purpose, and mine, it was well designed.

The room was a studio but I could totally imagine staying here for a week or two.  There was tons of storage, a desk with a pull out surface (perfect height to use my laptop at), a kitchenette with dishes, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, compact stove.  It was better than compact kitchens I’ve seen in some apartments.

The room itself had a King size bed, couch (I think it was a pull out), TV, and lots of storage.  The outlets were well placed, so you could access them to charge all your phones, ebooks, laptops and whatever other electronic devices you have.  There was excellent lighting throughout the room, kitchen and bathroom.  My only complaints were that the hairdryer was weak and the TV was not placed for good viewing from either the couch or the bed, but the viewing angle was adjustable.

The included breakfast was ok, it was pretty typical of an included breakfast.  There was coffee, tea, yogurt, bagels, muffins, banana, apple, and cereal. The only hot food was make your own waffle.  Yes, there was a good variety, but nothing to wow you either.

I would definitely consider staying at this hotel again if I was in the Denver area.
