A recent family staycation took us to Denver's Curtis Hotel to stay in the Ghostbuster suite. My 5 year old son, Everett, is a big fan of the movie and we couldn't wait to see his reaction to the themed room. Our first impression was the “Slimmer Green” flooring that started moving under our feet as well as a wall mural featuring all the characters. Another memorable moment was catching Vigo the Carpathian on the bathroom wall. Some extra highlights include the impressive 13th-floor city views and checking out the other themed floors. Grabbing breakfast at the Corner Office next door was the perfect way to finish off the weekend before heading home. The Curtis has numerous themed rooms -- everything from a comic book inspired room to a chick flick themed room -- so take a peek at the website to see rooms are available if Ghostbusters aren't your style.
