I've been staying the last few days at the Hyatt Place at the Denver Tech Center. The Hyatt Place is a kind of scaled-down, upscale hotel. They have limited restaurant service, but then they decorate the place with very modern stuff, as you might see in a pretty modern house.
And it has a 42 inch LCD TV! The first I've seen at a hotel. The bad news is that it hums when it's on like old TVs. The channels were limited, the better to encourage people to get on-demand. I was too tired to watch anything so I didn't.
The new fangled thing is to have really nice faucets that gently arc, and to have arced shower poles that look so strong you could do pullups on them. Well, you could if they weren't 5 inches (ah, US standard measurements) from the ceiling, and if could, in this fitness-impaired day-and-age do even a single pullup. Oh Ah-nuld, where are you to encourage general fitness?
And, they have a shuttle service! They'll drive you for free around in a five mile radius, which is pretty sweet. All hotels should do this! Apparently, I missed the sports bar on the second floor. Oh well.
Much of this niceness has to do with a recent renovation of the hotel, and they've done amazingly well.
So, thumbs up to the Hyatt Place (not the Regency!) at the DTC. (DTC has way too many hotels with similar names, one near the other).
Anyway, they are showing one of these Rube Goldbergian contraption things with lots of flames and such, being more of a pyro's wet dream of a setup.
