GABF travel and hotel suggestions
« on: July 07, 2011, 10:18:41 PM »
Looking for some insight,
I am a forum newbie and will be at the GABF for the first time this year in 2011.
Looking for a budget place to stay, but, I am traveling with my fellow home brewer.
We will be two dudes looking for cheap sleeping during GABF maybe near the rail or bus...I don't want to risk a DWI while on a vacation. Also, I would like to visit other local breweries while in Denver, without car (am I crazy?). Any suggestions would help.

P.S. I have a "Kitchen pass" from my wife and want use it well!
Cheers and beers

Here's a good place to start.

I called the Hilton a few weeks ago and they had a decent price for a two-bed room.  Most of the other hotels didn't have two-bed rooms available.

McManus thanks for the reply.
I decided to "slum" it and book cheap on hotwire.com, staying near Zuni St & W 27th Ave. I guess I will be riding a cab to the GABF‎.
