Enjoying my ride from Denver International Airport to my hotel downtown, I was so focused on the snow-capped mountains in the distance, I almost missed the city buildings fast approaching. About 30–40 minutes ride into the city, we arrived at the Aloft Denver Downtown.

 

Aptly named as it sits in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Denver’s downtown, the Aloft hotel offers an ideal home base for visitors. My room wasn’t quite ready when I arrived, so I took advantage of the empty lounge area next to the wxyz bar to plug in and get some work done. The lounge quickly filled up with guests, some playing pool and others grabbing coffee from the complimentary bar behind the concierge desk. About 45 minutes later I received a text my room was ready and headed up to the third floor.

 

The dark walls, neon accents and pops of text and color on the walls and furnishings set a fun, young and playful theme throughout the hotel. The trend continued from the lounge to the elevator and along the dark hallways leading to my room — perfect for the Project: Aloft Star later that night, featuring a BANNERS performance in the hotel

 

My guestroom was small, but efficient and felt infinitely bigger with the floor-to-ceiling window curtains open, looking out over the pavement and directly at my neighbors. The room was simple, no-fuss and perfect for a quick stay. I sat my luggage on the bench in front of the queen-sized bed, my computer and bag on the large desk and hung a few things in the closet near the coffee machine.

 

Both the hotel’s pantry and fitness center operate 24 hours for guests, allowing visitors freedom to come and go as they please. I took advantage of the hotel’s close proximity to local attractions and museums, as well as the concierge’s helpful suggestions for vegetarian options around the city.

 

Just a block from the Colorado Convention Center, a short walk from 16th Street Mall and surrounded by fun breweries and restaurants, the locale is essentially a one-stop shop for business travelers and first-time visitors getting their bearings in the area and surrounding neighborhoods.

HQ App

This app is sweeping the nation off its feet. HQ has quickly risen to the higher-ranking positions on charts that monitor an app’s success. The game seems to be popular among the young and older generations; it can be hard to get both invested in the same thing. The game is basically a trivia game where questions about certain topics will be asked and must be answered within a time limit. The bonus to playing the game is the cash prize at the end. Whomever wins that night gets a cash prize sent to them through their phone. Once the money has been transferred, it is the users to use with no hidden fees.
