Sing "On the Road Again" and understand that this was a work trip and certainly no holiday. It is a real tease to put me into an area that I would absolutely love to explore and lock me up in a hotel with windows that do not open! However, if you have to be in a hotel for nearly a week, this is a good one to choose. This Marriott is the 3rd largest hotel in Denver and although it is far both from the airport and from downtown, it has plenty of nice features. You can even steal a view of the mountains and autumn leaves in brilliant colors.It was very, very dry when I was in Denver.

I was tired beyond words by the time I arrived at Denver International Airport. I searched for a pre-flight meal and fortune shown upon me when I found Pour la France.

For a fair cost you can get a nicely prepared meal with fresh food items and wonderful coffee and bread. Service is fast as per the circumstances, but the food is very tasty.My travel companion ordered a roast beef sandwich with a tasty Caesar salad and enjoyed every bite. Seek this place out and tell your frie...Read More
