Historical Traveller Reviews of The Curtis Hotel
Hotel for a younger crowdfrom iliketosleep
Curtis Denver Sucks!from mamckean
Example: I called for room service as advertised in the room (food from the menu I found listed on the room menu) and the front desk said it was not available and was rude when I asked for clarification about what I could get (apparently nothing). I was amazed how they treated me on the phone, and I went down to the front desk to clarify the situation and the front desk agent immediately called security rather than talking to me! I have never been so surprised and minimized in my travel experience. I am a frequent flyer and traveler and never will stay here again...service was inexplicably rude, immature, and unable to deal with the basic situation.
Side note: The hotel is themed. If you like elevators that chant "big hair 80s floor" to you when you get out and you do not mind when things advertised in your room are unavailabile and the front desk blames it on you, this is your place!
Mixed Bag...from TXdano
The quirky style, nice rooms, friendly staff, and ideal location would make it a great hotel in my book, if it weren't for some glaring basic noise problems.
We really wanted to like The Curtis... BUTfrom livel
The biggest downfall is how NOISY this hotel was. DEFINITELY ask not to be next to the elevator or the ice maker. People are loud and obnoxious and why The Curtis has any guest room facing the elevator is beyond me. We asked to be moved, but they couldn't move us. The loud 'PING.... going down!" kept us up all night in addition to the loud people getting on and off... It was unreal. When people walked by our door it was as if they were in the room with us, as others have noted in other reviews. FInally to get more than two hours of sleep between the people, the elevator and the train and car noise, we turned on the fan and stuffed a towel under the gap in the door- Not exactly what I call a relaxing night at The Curis. Oh, and we had a room with a connecting door- it was obvious that our headboard was on the same wall as the headboard of the people next door- UHG.
I'm really surprised to see people saying this is the most unique hotel they have ever stayed at- it's really pretty ordinary with a few quirky games around and decorations. Great concept but it's falling short right now.
It COULD be fabulous... which is what we were hoping- but it's not there yet-
Add to the interior decorations, get new doors on the guest rooms, increase the insulation in the walls/ceilings, decrease the obnoxious $24.00 valet parking (or the lovely 18.00 option to park your own) fee and you've got something. The location is great, the staff was great for us, room service good but this hotel as a whole is not really as advertised.
I hope they work on it. We might try it again if we can be guaranteed they've done something about the noise issue and can get on a high floor to minimize the street noise.
Off to a good start Curtis, but we wouldn't come back if it stays as is...
The Potential to be Stellarfrom anthau
as to say that the good and the bad are both true, but the good trumps.
Of the negatives, the one which I agree with is the need for better sound-proofing. The gap underneath my fiancee's and my room door was visible, and we could hear everything from the hallway in our wing.
The restaurant and the rest of floors 2 & 3 are still under construction (which for us meant that we had to smoke on the street, instead of on the coming smoking porch). We stayed Saturday and Sunday nights. Continental breakfast seems no longer offered, though Daz Bog coffee was available in the lobby (it's near and dear to our hearts that they provide coffee from a local chain instead of Starbuck's). Sam's No. 3 restaurant is a half block away, though, so a delicious if greasy breakfast is right there; for more continental fare, the cafe at the Buell is even closer.
The 16th Street mall is a block and a half away, so when we wanted a late-night snack, we found the Rialto Cafe which, though pricey, had a delicious sirloin and gorgonzola salad, though the warm roasted chicken salad was too busy.
The real delight food-wise is the Red Square restaurant in Writer's Square. Granted, we had the benefit of having a friend who accompanied us who is tight with the staff, but our meal there would have been delightful (Max is a master of sauces) even if the cook and the owner hadn't each sent our table a round of vodka.
The Curtis staff is remarkably friendly, especially the doormen / valets. The real magic of The Curtis is that they have figured out how to be a top-shelf hotel without the pretension. We have every faith that they will iron out the few kinks, and plan on making The Curtis our home away from home.
A new (and fantastic) approach to hotels!!from MarchTravels
- and it's memorable!!
Arrival: The sign on the street that says, "Dude, where's my car" signals that the valet is ready to park your car. Upon entering the lobby we knew we had entered a totally different type of hotel. The whole staff shouted Hello! Welcome! and on the front desk was a game of scrabble.
The Room: We were on the Chick Flick floor (each has a unique themed
floor) which was decked out with posters of Thema and Louise. Our room was spacious and very well appointed. The hotel is brand new (newly rennovated) so everything is very trendy. The flat screen TV was a favorite of my husbands. I particularily enjoyed the Beetle alarm clock with remote control. There was also a bobble head doll above the toilet that said, "We always get our man." Turndown service was provided each night and candy (Tootsie Rolls, Bottle Caps and Pop Rocks) was left on each pillow.
Room Service: The adjacent restaurant wasn't open yet but roomservice
was provided. It was outstanding. Not only was the food great but the
portions/price were a-typical. They even have a menu for your four legged friends!
Extras: The pool/gym weren't open so we were mostly in our room but I have to say the "extras" of this hotel were just in the way the staff treated guests, the Marliyn Monroe wake up call and the unique twists.
I'd go back in a flash and really suggest this as a place for everyone. Families, teens, girls night out or a romatic weekend away
...it has something for everyone and is just fun!
Fantastic hotel - great experiencefrom perseus9
Then in the room, the intelligent design was obvious. Baskets of fresh, extra plush bath towels fit perfectly behind the all glass shower wall, modern wood and chrome looking bathroom vanity had seperate spaces for hand towels and wash cloths, flush cieling mount mr-16 high moisture fixture in the shower (i do residential remodels), in-cieling shower curtain bearings, and so on.
The beds were absolutely comfortable, feather pillows, flat screen tv, decent desk with immediately accessible high speed wireless. I must say, i was amazed at the value of this hotel - this was by far the best $109 room i've ever stayed in. I cant wait for them to expand the line across the country - hope they do!
Great Hotel!from jpressler
Fantastic Service, Value, and Stylefrom bnzjamin
Checked in, went to room, open 12 pack of beer sitting in bath room, half eaten food on desk, old news paper laying on bed next to empty champane bottle. Back down to lobby for another room. Furishings in room seemed new, mattress old, worn out. Floor so unlevel it felt like you were walking down/up hill. The "fun, whimisical style "consisted of a few cheesey posters in the hall, other than that just your everyday hotel room. Fire alarm at 9pm told to evacuate the building. Asked for 7am wakeup call, never got it.
No parking except $18 a day valet. because the parking garage was under construction which is where they park your car.
Top Local Tips for Denver
DCPA Hot Spot If i were in town from the suburbs or a nearby town for a theater performance, The Curtis is hands down the place to be, I could see the Denver Center for Performing Arts from my room. The fun environment of The curtis would appeal to young theater goers in town for a weekend escape.
in town for an event at the pepsi center? stay at the curtis! it takes about ten minutes to walk from the curtis to the pepsi center--we did it in wind and snow with no problems. just head around the corner and wind your way there. don't bother with a taxi if you're even a somewhat healthy adult who can read street signs <=]
Red Rocks Amphitheatre If you’ve never experienced a concert in this venue yet, put it on your life’s to do list! It’s a truly unique and magnificent natural amphitheatre set between monolithic and beautiful ancient rock formations (and yes, they’re red!) with amazing acoustics and the vista of the twinkling lights of Denver in the distance. There’s no better way to spend a summer night under the stars!
