So much to do in LoDo. Take the train from the airport, don't deal with parking! Very walkable and has everything you need. Lots of great hotels, restaurants, bars and entertainment. Be sure to catch a show in the theater district. Multiple shows each evening,...More

If you are looking for a hotel in Denver, stay in LoDo. There are so many things to see and do if you stay in this area and you don't need your car. Union Station, 16 Street Mall, Larimar Street, Convention Center, Coors Park--the list...More

the 16th street mall is nothing more than a street with a bunch of stores and restaurants spread out over half a mile. Doesn't really meet my definition of a mall.

Plenty of art, shopping, architecture in this area. This area is a good place to wander around and take it all in. It is also a great place to get some exercise. The terrain is nearly flat and easy to walk. I would recommend visiting...More

Nice area to see and enjoy Denver. There is homeless throughout but can avoid them. Great sculptures and attractions. Take time to enjoy everything. Do not be in a rush. Very walkable and now with scooter rentals.

I lived in LoDo and loved it. So much to do and experience. You can walk from the shuttle to LoDo and well worth it. Shopping, dining and great people watching! A must!

character, many food options, shopping galore, a cultural think. Closed off streets except to free bus to take you back and forth, pianos every block for players, tables, chairs, seems like Barcelona! Plan on spending one half to full day.

LoDo is a cool neighborhood where you can stumble upon on a nice sculpture, decent restaurant, cozy retail shop. I felt safe all the time. A lot of things to discover and take photo of.

Hi Avon Traveler, So if the operative word is "quick" I would recommend going to Union Station which is fronted by Wynkoop Street. That block features short-term valet ($) and UBER parking but you then dont have to mess... More

There are many hotels near LoDo (walking distance or short Uber/Cab ride)... not so many in LoDo itself! The most affordable decent hotels will run you US$150 per room per night! I recommend that you go on Trivago and search... More
