Hotels & Resorts In Denver
Colorado’s capital city of Denver tops the country’s lists of most livable, affordable, friendliest cities. It is home to many of the world’s most admired brands and companies, and its central location in the state makes it a great base for a variety of outdoor activities year-round. Whether you find yourself in Denver for work or pleasure, hiking or skiing, for a weekend or for a week, there’s a great budget hotel waiting for you. With hot, sunny weather in the summer and excellent snow sports in the winter, Denver is a popular destination year-round.
With hot, sunny weather in the summer and excellent snow sports in the winter, Denver is a popular destination year-round. Despite this, if you’re looking for cheap hotels, winter is a great time because many skiers skip the city and head straight for the mountains. September through October and April through May also tend to be slower times. The worst times are high summer (June-September), when temps soar and travelers flock to the city’s open squares and courtyards to soak up the fresh Colorado air, making budget hotels scarce. If you’re looking at a specific weekend and finding very few options for hotels, there might be a convention in town – the city is an ideal town for convention organizers – so explore alternative dates for getting the best prices.
If you haven’t been to Denver before, you may be surprised to find that the Denver airport is about 25 miles outside of downtown, and travel times can be considerable at typical rush hour times. Be sure to plan ahead how you’ll be getting to/from the airport and leave yourself plenty of time, both coming and going. Your options for airport transfers include shuttles, the city’s SkyRide express bus, or renting a car. If location isn’t important to you and you already plan on renting a car, you can score a hotel deal near the Denver airport; hotels are clustered around 40th Avenue as well as Tower Road.
