This year’s Labor Day weekend was a whirlwind adventure, with daily visits to airports as we trekked across the country. Our first stop was in Denver for a friend’s wedding. We arrived mid-morning for the mid-afternoon ceremony, but would be heading on to Los Angeles the next morning, so staying close to the airport made the most sense for us this time around. The Hyatt House Denver Airport was a great choice for this stay.
Hyatt House properties tend to cater more toward extended stays than Hyatt Place, the brand’s low-frills, express offering. With that focus on longer-term stays, Hyatt House locations include suites featuring kitchenettes, often have grills and larger gathering areas, and offer an expanded array of convenience items than a standard Hyatt Place would typically stock.
The Hyatt House Denver Airport offered both regular rooms and suites, including units with up to one king and two queen beds. We were placed in a King room including a fully equipped kitchen for 4,000 points + $55 thanks to Hyatt’s Cash + Points option. This allowed me to earn another paid stay toward my goal of obtaining top-tier Hyatt status in 2017, which is in the process of being rebranded from Diamond to Globalist as part of a broader series of changes to Hyatt’s loyalty program.
The room was in excellent condition, as was the rest of the property. It’s unclear if this was a relatively new Hyatt House location, or one that had been recently refurbished, but in either case, the room was comfortable and fit our needs for a one-night stay perfectly.
The kitchen went unused during our stay, except for the refrigerator, but would certainly be a nice feature for a longer stay.
The room’s layout placed the couch against one wall and the bed against the other, with the entertainment system acting as a partition between the two. The TV could cleverly pivot between facing the living room and bedroom areas.
Lastly, the bathroom was in excellent condition, and was large enough to allow two people to get cleaned up from a day of travel and dressed up for the big event in record time.
The next morning, we took advantage of the Hyatt House’s free airport shuttle to head back to Denver so we could catch our Southwest flight on to Burbank. Our stay in a suite at the Andaz West Hollywood was on deck, and as well as the Hyatt House may have treated us, I was excited to head to a truly premium property for our next stop.
