The Timbers Hotel -- DIA and Northeast Denver Hotel

The Timbers Residence Hotel recently opened, bringing Denver's Northeast corridor its first upscale lodging option.

"The Timbers' timing is perfect", says Julie Bender, DIA Partnership President & CEO. "With the Northeast region's expansion booming, we are excited to have another hotel of this caliber to offer to professional and leisure travelers.

The 127-suite hotel occupies 7.2 acres off Interstate 70 on Peoria, one mile from Fitzsimons Medical Campus and in close proximity to Denver International Airport.

The Northeast region offers the choice of high quality hotels for the thousands of travelers to and through the Denver metro area. The Timbers adds to the Northeast region's strong hotel base of nearly as many hotel rooms in the Northeast metro region as downtown Denver. DIA and the surrounding communities will contribute nearly $85 billion to the metro Denver economy; up substantially from the current $15.3 billion.

We are excited for the hotel's first year, but are also looking forward to our continued growth." says Timbers General Manager, Steve Fisher. "Phase two plans, slated for summer 2006, include a signature spa and additional suites."

Interior/Environmental Design:
The Timbers incorporates contemporary Colorado design, spiced with Old West overtones. Denver-based designer Mandil Associates Inc. has created a unique atmosphere that combines comfort and class with a cosmopolitan flair. The landscape design was created with water conservation and Xeriscape principles in mind. The landscape architecture includes a sprawling Zen-like setting with an alpine meadow of trees, grasses, a stone water feature and a dry creek bed. The furniture was custom designed by Mandil Associates in conjunction with HW Home of Boulder and Cherry Creek and top manufacturers, including Mitchell Gold.

This Denver Hotel features:
- Three suite sizes: 39 studios (345 square feet), 78 one-bedroom (690 square feet) and 10 two-bedroom (1,035 square feet). The Timbers' average 700 square foot suite is nearly double the size of a typical 400 square foot hotel room.

- The hotel has 5,000 square feet of meeting space with four meeting rooms and a ballroom.
- Each suite is equipped with full kitchens, including stainless steel appliances, a microwave, granite counter tops and custom cabinetry.
- The property is equipped with complimentary wireless Internet and has a business center with computer workstations and other business-related options.
- Dining facilities include an on-site restaurant, lounge and breakfast nook.

The Timbers caters primarily to medical, professional and leisure travelers visiting the University of Colorado's Fitzsimons Medical Center, the Colorado Bioscience Park and Aurora/Forest City's Stapleton community.

Deep Sea Fishing

Colorado Guy loves fishing!

Costa Rica is well known as a fisherman's paradise. Fly-fishing for flats fish -- bonefish, tarpon, permit are all available.

Interior species of local fish are abundant.

That said (and the bonefish and tarpon are hard to beat!), the deep sea marlin amazing is a beatiful and romantic fish to pursue. It is easy to also target popular fish lik Sailfish, Tuna, Marlin, Dorado, Rooster, Sea Bass.

If you have never tried it, deep-sea fishing is quite an experience. As a Fly Fishing Fiend, the deep sea held some appeal...but my fly-fishing I enjoy catching Marlin Tuna and Sail-fish on the old-fashioned deep-sea boat gear... save the fly fishing gear for the flats bonefish and permit and tarpon ... Did I mention you can catch a lot of fish in Costa Rica?
