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.

Carp Fishing

Summer is the perfect time to try your luck at carp fishing. Carp are widely recognized as an invasive species known to cause problems in the waterways they call home. They suck up all the food and reduce the quality of the water, hurting more sensitive marine populations. Luckily for anglers, carp can grow to massive sizes and are a ton of fun to catch.

Passport PD: The World’s First GaN Technology-Based Travel Adapter

Passport PD is the world’s first GaN technology-based travel adapter with an auto-resetting fuse. Why is this important? If you break the single-use fuse in your typical travel adapter, you have only a few options — buy a new fuse, change the fuse yourself or buy a new travel adapter altogether. Additionally, if the fuse breaks and you don’t notice, then you could expect to come back to a fully charged device … only, you won’t.
