Quiet and romantic

Denver, Colorado

Negatives: Outdoor pool area currently under construction and private beach is experiencing some red algae. Not close to activities, shopping or bars but shuttle service and bicycles are available. $20/day to park your car as a guest. My husband and I got a complimentary checkout until 1 and was told we could use the pool and stay on property until we needed to leave for our flight. Told we could use the spa room showers to clean up and our room keys would still work to get us in everywhere. Keys do not work!! Positives: Stunning historic hotel and spotless. Friendly staff and restaurants have good food. Ice cream parlor is adorable with some of the best ice cream I have had. In room mini bar. Beautiful room views from all directions of your room.

Worst stay yet!

Fairfield, Connecticut

The family did a long weekend at the Don - we visit at least twice a year. The hotel has definitely lost some of it’s specialness since it was taken over by Loews but the family still liked it up until our most recent stay. When we booked our rooms we were not alerted to the fact that the hotel was under construction or that there was red tide. One of the pools and the hot tub were under construction. Since there was red tide the beach was not an option so everyone had to jam into the one open pool - this meant families with children and drunk wedding guests blasting music. We also felt that food and beverage service was incredibly slow - you have 100 people at the pool - add an extra waiter! Just terrible. In addition to the inconvenience of the construction - there was loud tile cutting and drilling even on Saturday morning. I also noticed that we were still charged a resort fee - not at a discounted rate. When I asked for a late check out - 1:30 - I was told I was only allowed up to 1 pm or I had I pay. Like really? I know that the hotel staff must know it is wrong to not alert incoming guests about the construction. They cannot be idiots so to me it felt very manipulative. I felt taken advantage of. Very disappointing all around. I heard there is a new luxury hotel opening on Tampa - I will be going there for my next stay.
