Funky Hotel Added by Denvention 3

The Curtis' 13th FloorDenvention 3 Housing has added a new hotel — The Curtis, which received a $30 million upgrade before reopening under its new name in January 2007. The Curtis is just two blocks away from the Colorado Convention Center. Singles/doubles are $159 per night, triples are $169 and quads are $179.

The committee’s press release calls The Curtis “an independent hotel with a sense of humor.” That turns out to be a good thing in this case. (“Humor” at some con hotels means the staff laughs at us). Fun is designed into The Curtis, from a robot that greets you in the lobby, to the quirky pop-culture theme of each floor. Some will like the sci-fi theme on the 8th floor. But I know some of you will want to reserve rooms on the 13th floor and be greeted each morning by the leering face of Jack Nicholson from The Shining.

Check the Denvention facilities page for more information.

Rooms for Denvention are currently available in all of the following hotels: The Curtis, Crowne Plaza, Westin Tabor Center, Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center, Grand Hyatt Denver.

The only one of these I’ve stayed in before is the Crowne Plaza, because it’s convenient to the offices I was visiting across the street. The Crowne Plaza in Denver is okay. My experience with the chain’s hotels in some other cities has not been so good (one in Philadelphia, and another in Houston).

Denvention 3 has also added information on how to handle room transfers.
