    Planning for Denver road trip



    Staying at Westin downtown. Appears I should be able to take the light rail to the stadium from Union station. Has anyone done this? Wondering if there is a better way to get to the stadium...TD

    I would stick with their Light Rail. The lines to get on the trains appeared to be no worse than those in Baltimore.


    There used to be an octagonal hotel within a long stone's throw of the stadium. I can't recall the the name -- it had been part of a decent chain of hotels found in most large & mid-sized cities in the West. The hotel at that time (2001 season) was about a 3 star, with lounge & restaurant on-site - not to be confused with a Westin. They were very amenable to our group, including allowing us to tailgate party on their front lawn. The Hotel has since changed hands to become the Hotel VQ, appearing to have gone somewhat downhill from guests ratings. If you are going to Denver prior to the game, it would be worth checking out because of its proximity to the stadium.

    Other stadium area hotels were dumps in 2001. I don't recall the Hampton Inn being there, so you may want to check that out.


    We have been to all subsequent games at Invesco whatever field, parking at a remote cash lot for tailgating. No problems with entry or egress.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    There is a website (http://www.meetup.com/ravens52/) with a couple hundred Ravens fans that live in and around the Denver area. As they did for the playoff game, I expect they will coordinate a Baltimore Ravens tailgate somewhere near to the stadium. They normally watch the game at Choppers, which is probably where they will meet up again after the game.

    Here is what I have figured out so far if booked now.

    Round trip flight (direct) $300
    Doubletree Hotel Wed-Sat (deapart).$475
    Travelocity discount package ($175)
    Game ticket approx $250

    Total $850

    Thinking about going. Appreciate any ways to do it even cheaper. Of course splitting the hotel is the first way. (Mine was based on double occupancy)

    Stars 85 USFL

    So where is everyone sitting? I'm probably going- but staying with friends who are Denver fans- and think I'd rather hang with them the night and morning before, but then sit with a group of Ravens fans for the game. They are in nose bleeds too.
    What sections/rows everyone in??
    "Sorry officer, nothing wrong here. I'm just watching the Ravens game!"

    I'm arriving the day of the game due to my class schedule. Probably leaving Saturday. Not even sure if i will have time tailgate. I don't know my section yet.
