Whenever I am thinking of getting away from the daily grind, I look for fun places to visit, and places to stay with my family. On a recent trip to Colorado, I stayed at 6 hotels in 7 nights. The first stop on that trip was Le Méridien Downtown Denver, a Marriott property. This boutique hotel blends traditional European influence with a modern sense of style.

Located in the Central Business District, Le Méridien is close to so many of Denver’s popular attractions. Union Station, Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, Civic Center Park, Colorado State Capitol, Denver Zoo, Coors Field (home to MLB’s Colorado Rockies of the MLB), and the Pepsi Center (home to NBA’s Denver Nuggets, NHL’s Colorado Avalanche, and NLL’s Colorado Mammoth) are all minutes away.

Le Méridien Downtown Denver bed

The guest room I stayed in was quite nice, with a big comfortable bed, a big screen tv, and a shower with amazing water pressure.

I know – the water pressure may seem trivial to some. For me, if the showerhead is adjustable, and has strong water pressure, I’m one happy camper.

Speaking of the comfy beds, they had these cool directional reading lights at either side of the headboard.

  1. I love Le Meridien hotels and will definitely check this one out if I’m ever in the area. Just curious, why was there a fee to use the in-room safe?
