The Curtis describes themselves as a “pop-culture” hotel with a unique theme on each of their 16 floors. They're mostly themed according to movie genres like the Sci-Fi Floor (their pet-friendly floor), Chick-Flick Floor, and Dun, Dun, Dunnnnnnn, the horror movie floor, which we chose to stay on.
I had a slight feeling of regret after pulling the trigger on HotelTonight, fearing that the hotel experience being akin to out-of-touch grandparents taking two college kids on a Disney Cruise for spring break.
Luckily, this was not the case and we were immediately pleased with the tasteful design of the lobby and restaurant. We were also surprised with the prime location of the property, wedged next to Hotel Teatro and a stone-throw from the Four Seasons. We were able to easily walk to dinner at the Cru Wine Bar, which I highly recommend. There were also some great bars within walking distance like The Front Porch, a hip modern drinking establishment.
Nothing about The Curtis is luxurious per se but as you’ve probably noticed, our stays thus far on the road trip have all been at relatively reasonable price points for the locations and amenities of the hotels. You won’t find a minibar, bathrobes, or even a mini-fridge in the guest rooms but the room service menu was pretty solid. The room was the smallest room that we’ve stayed in so far on the trip at 232 sq. ft. but the enormous shower made up for it. The bathroom, stocked with Crabtree & Evelyn bath products, was pretty small, aside from the shower.
The Curtis is a fun and tasteful addition to the Doubletree portfolio with an exceptional location in Downtown Denver and warm friendly service. Parking in the hotel garage set us back $22, and they offered valet service for an additional $6.
But,if you are looking for a bit more of a lux stay, look next door at the Four Seasons or Teatro.
Next stop for Teddy and Sally is the Arches National Park, where they will be roughing it. But stay tuned tomorrow for their night in Vegas!
