The hotel has individual climate control in each guestroom, allowing guests to maintain a temperature that's right for them, saving energy in the process.
Pets are allowed at this hotel, with restrictions.
Wastebaskets aren't lined, saving resources, and are wiped out as needed.
The shower curtain is woven nylon, rather than heavy-duty plastic, reducing off-gassing produced by plastics. Water pressure was very good, speaking of showers.
The basic bathroom amenities of shampoo, conditioner, and lotion were available. A wider array of amenities were offered from the front desk if you needed them -- sewing kit, shoe shine mit, and toothpaste and brush, for starters; all you had to do was ask. This seems like a great alternative to the waste of supplying anything a guest could want, or not.
Guests are provided a warm cookie at check in; for those who like Ghiradelli chocolate chip and walnut cookies it's a treat!
The hotel is located across from the old Stapleton airport that has been repurposed into a business and shopping park. From what we could see, the space is well done. Quebec Street is noisy because of the amount of traffic on it, but it does make this hotel convenient to DIA, downtown Denver, and various business areas around the city.
The Sweet Dreams bed was comfortable. There were plenty of pillows on the bed so I was able to find one that was squishy enough for me while my husband found one that was firm enough for him. The biggest problem for my husband was that he had a couple of feathers poking him during the night.
The front desk staff were pleasant. Our room had special little touches, including a lovely silk plant. The lobby and common areas had live plants. The hotel seemed clean and well taken care of.
My room didn't have the silk plant, but it was a pleasant room, even with views overlooking a quiet neighborhood.
Things seem to have changed in the four years since the previous review was submitted. The guestroom had two recycling waste baskets in the room. To be more precise there was one wooden container that held two plastic containers -- one for trash and one for recycling. Excellent!
The trend toward individual coffee-cup coffee brewing removes the horror stories of flight crews using the coffee pots for sanitizing their underwear, or of housekeepers "in-room sanitizing" of coffee cups. But, it adds to the landfill issue. Wow, running a green hotel is a constant balancing act of what makes the least environmental or health impact. I have generally found a way of holding my travel mug so my coffee goes directly into my cup and not wasting a paper hot cup, but it's not a solution many are going to be willing to do.
It seems this hotel is improving its green operations and maintaining high standards of hospitality and comfort. Kudos, DoubleTree!
This website is for you and your fellow green travelers. You can make it more useful by sharing your travel experiences at the different environmentally friendly hotels or eco-lodges you stay in. The more comments and reviews we have on the hotels in the database, the more you and other environmentally conscious travelers have to go on for making decisions.
When you review a hotel, the information we are looking for is what your experience was; how you felt about what you saw and did in regards to the hotel. Did you notice any environmentally sensitive steps taken that aren't covered by either the attributes list or the hotel's website? For example, were the shower curtains fabric rather than plastic, the wastebasket unlined, or did the room smell fresh without having been perfumed? Does the housekeeping staff honor the towel/sheet program? Are Styrofoam products offered at any food establishments connected to the environmentally friendly hotel? We want the good and the bad so other green travelers can make informed decisions.
There are lots of little things that go into making a great experience, and lots of little things that go into making a great green experience. That's what we are looking for in the reviews we receive. All comments and submissions become the property of HealthyStays.com, LLC and may be published.
