Hyatt House Denver International Airport (DIA)

My first Hyatt House stay!  Well, not really.  I’ve stayed at this property a few dozen times as a Hyatt Summerfield Suites.  They’ve rebranded, but not much otherwise has changed.  The staff always recognizes me when I check-in, which makes it a bit more welcoming.

Hyatt House is a limited service product meant for longer stays.  I generally stay at this property because it’s 30 minutes closer to DIA then the downtown Hyatt’s.  If I have a 6am flight, that extra 30 minutes of sleep at 3:30 in the morning is very welcome.

The hotel provides an upgraded breakfast from your standard limited service property.  But, the big plus for me is the market.  It’s well stocked with tons of food, beer and wine.  Prices are reasonable, so it saves me a 7-eleven stop.

I usually reserve a studio room, but they have both 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom suites as well.  When traveling with kids, the 2-bedroom suites are ideal.  This time, they upgraded me from the studio to a one-bedroom.

As you’ll be able to see from the pictures below, there’s a nice soft seating area along with a decent kitchen (which I rarely use but looks pretty functional).  Full size fridge is great, and there are two TVs.  Bathroom is big and bright.  I actually prefer this shower to the Hyatt Regency as it’s huge and has a great shower head.  It sounds like a small detail, but the little things make a difference when you spend 100+ days on the road every year.

There’s not a whole lot I’d change.  There’s a decent exercise facility and pool, the property is clean and staff is attentive.  I actually like the layout of the rooms, as there are separate distinct areas to work or relax, and the space is much better laid out than standard hotel rooms.
