Arnold, I would also ask about neighborhoods. A running friend of ours was
shot to death in Colorado Springs while walking from his hotel to a nearby
drugstore. He and his wife were there with a convention group, the Arkansas
Pikes Peak Marathon Society, but were staying in a different hotel. No one
had warned him about the crime in that hotel's neighborhood. Colorado
Springs is known as a safe, friendly place, and it is, mostly. But every
city has its problems.
Denver is a bigtime big city. I wouldn't hesitate to book a cheaper hotel,
but do check out the neighborhood of whatever hotel you use. I think that
is good advice no matter where one travels.
