About Denver

The Mile High City

Denver is a vibrant city situated on a mile-high plateau at the base of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. It is known for its brilliant blue skies and nearly 300 days of sunshine. Whether you like sightseeing, hiking, biking, skiing, rafting, or attending sporting or musical events, Denver has activities and nearby destinations of interest.

All meeting events will take place at the Hyatt Regency, which is in a prime location in downtown Denver just one block from the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall. The Mall has free shuttle buses that traverse the mile-long street lined with many interesting restaurants and shops. Denver’s Light Rail system stops in front of the hotel.

A popular section of the downtown called LoDo (Lower Downtown) is within walking distance or a short shuttle ride from the Hyatt. This area of converted turn-of-the century red brick buildings, features trendy restaurants and shops as well as 90 brew pubs.
