When it was built, Denver International Airport seemed "out in the middle of nowhere." Today, the Denver airport district is evolving into a thriving center of businesses, services and residential communities, and options for airport-area hotels keep increasing. The crown jewel of this growth comes later this year when The Westin Denver International Airport, attached directly to the airport, opens its doors. Needs vary for travelers. Some want well-equipped meeting space and full-service restaurants. Some focus solely on value. And some need services at midnight or 4 a.m. Denver's airport hotels meet a range of needs. For families, all-suite hotels work well because everyone fits comfortably in one room. Woolley's Classic Suites and Cambria Suites Denver International Airport are good for families on the go and so is Holiday Inn Express Denver Airport where kids eat free. Young professionals expect good connectivity for all their devices and hotels with a contemporary style and vibe. Aloft Denver International Airport and Hyatt Place Denver Airport are on top of that. Complimentary Wi-FI, 24-hour grab-and-go pantries, fitness rooms, pools and airport shuttles are some other key elements that speak to today's travelers. And keep in mind that some traditional brands may surprise you.
