Hyatt Regency Grand Hyatt Hyatt Place AC Hotel By Marriot

The conference hotels

Located one block from the 16th Street Mall, the Hyatt Regency offers a stylish space in downtown Denver with spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains.

Getting around

The Denver International Airport is a major hub and one of the busiest airports in the United States. Because of current construction projects, we recommend planning ahead. There are many ground transportation options to get you to the conference hotel.

We recommend taking the light rail downtown. You’ll ride to the last stop, which is Union Station. From there, you can take a short walk to 16th street and catch the free 16th-street mall shuttle to Welton Street. The hotel is located on 15th and Welton.

If you’ll be driving, the Hyatt Regency has an on-site parking garage that offers daily rates. There are also other nearby parking options. We recommend using parking apps like SpotHero to book a convenient spot in advance.

Once you’re here, there are numerous ways to explore the city.

Light rail & busses

Denver RTD offers travel between the airport and downtown, as well as lines away from the city center if you’d like to explore.

Ride sharing

Lyft and Uber operate in Denver, as well as several local taxi services.

Bike or scooter rentals

Scooters and electric bikes are available for rent through Lime and Lyft.

Walking

There are many areas worth exploring around the hotel.

A note about preparations

Weather

The average daily high temperature in August is a mild 86 degrees Fahrenheit. In summer, Denver offers a perfect combination of warm, sunny days followed by cool evenings where a light jacket or sweater is often welcome.

Altitude affects

Denver is exactly 5,280 feet above sea level—one mile high. In Denver’s rarified air, golf balls go 10% farther (yay) but so does alcohol (oof). Alcoholic drinks pack more of a punch than at lower altitudes, so please drink responsibly and follow these additional recommendations:

  • Drink more water than normal

    Before your trip to Denver, and while you are here, drinking plenty of water is the number one way to help your body adjust easily to the higher altitude. The low humidity in Colorado keeps the air dry, like the desert, so you need about twice as much water here as you would drink at home.
  • Eat foods high in potassium

    It’s important to eat foods that help replenish electrolytes by balancing salt intake. Think foods such as broccoli, bananas, avocado, cantaloupe, celery, greens, bran, chocolate, granola, dates, dried fruit, potatoes, and tomatoes.
  • Watch your physical activity

    It’s simple biology: With less oxygen in the air, there is less oxygen for your body to pump to your muscles. Take it easy when you begin exercising at higher altitudes. Go slower and reduce your normal activity.
  • Prepare for powerful sunshine

    There’s 25% less protection from the sun in Denver, so sunscreen is a must. Denver receives over 300 days of sunshine each year (more than San Diego or Miami). Bring sunglasses, sunscreen, and protect your lips and skin with moisturizers.

COVID-19 planning

We’re carefully monitoring the latest health and safety guidance from the CDC and the Colorado Department of Health. To ensure the safety of our attendees, we will comply with all protocols at the time of the conference.
