The Mile High City prides itself on its walkability and the great outdoors, two points that are abundantly available for convention attendees. No fewer than 8,400 hotel rooms are within easy walking distance of the Colorado Convention Center.

Hotels include the 516-room Grand Hyatt, one of two Hyatts in the neighborhood. Its 17,000-square-foot Pinnacle Club, on the 37th and 38th floors, offers breathtaking views of the city and the Rockies.

The hotel also caters events at the Clyfford Still Museum, opening this month alongside the Denver Art Museum and devoted to the work of the great American abstract expressionist.
