The Grand Hyatt Denver is located in Downtown Denver at 1750 Welton Street Denver, CO 80202 – Phone (303) 295-1234.
While most will consider it a huge plus to be having the conference in Downtown Denver this year, Denver International Airport is a ways away. Denver International Airport is 23 miles or 30 minutes from the Grand Hyatt Denver. Getting from DIA/DEN to the Grand Hyatt Hotel is not quick or cheap. But, I’ve got some options for you that will make it less expensive.
1. Take the discounted SuperShuttle. SuperShuttle (the blue 15 passenger vans with painted on wings) has put together a discount rate for #FinCon12 attendees. Here’s the scoop:
Ride SuperShuttle from/to Denver International Airport for $22.00 one way and $38.00 round trip.
To receive your discount:
Make your reservation by following this link: http://www.supershuttle.com/?gc=FIN12&port=DEN&Direction=RF&aType=M (print the confirmation page or you can email it to yourself)
Reservations can also be made by calling 1-800-BLUEVAN (258-3826), give the code FIN12 to the call taker.
Arrival at DIA/DEN: All guest must check-in at the SuperShuttle counter after collecting baggage. Please note, having a reservation from the airport only indicated that we have collected your intended travel details. However, due to unpredictable variables with air travel, we board our shuttles on a first come first served basis. Please follow the signage to the main terminal baggage claim on level 5. Our counter is on the right when at the top of the escalators from the train. From the concourse A walkway, our counter is in the middle area of the main terminal on level 5, designated for ground transportation. Please note: the counter is closed from midnight to 6:00am. If you arrive between these hours, please use the courtesy phone located at the ticket counter to notify reservations of your arrival.
2. Take the RTD SkyRide Bus. Do the slightly cheaper option and take the RTD SkyRide bus from the airport (an approx. 1 hour ride) and it will deliver you right into Downtown Denver.
How to: To be brought from DIA/DEN to Downtown Denver, take the AF bus (the fare is $9, $11, or $13- depending where you pick up the bus and they don’t give change so be sure to have exact amount). They will drop you off at Market Street Station.
If you’re staying in a hotel Downtown you’ll then be able to pick up the 16th Street Mall Free Mall Ride to get closer to your hotel. To depart Denver you can take the AF bus right back to the airport. These buses run about every hour so be sure to plan accordingly.
3. Take a taxi or car service. Taxi is $51 from the airport into Downtown and $53 from Downtown to the airport ($104/round trip).
Like last year we’ve created a taxi share document. You can always use the Twitter hash tag #FinCon12 the day of and find a taxi share.
Note, if you decide to rent a car, valet parking at the hotel is $28/day.
