Kick off your unforgettable sports adventure with transportation to the Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Your arrival is in plenty of time for the coin toss between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos, 2 of the American Football Conference West’s more formidable teams.

    Enjoy a lively welcome reception near the center of action at your hotel, the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center, where you will mingle with your fellow football-loving DreamTrippers.

    At nighttime, dive into the vibrant downtown Denver arts and entertainment experience. The plethora of music options can easily keep you dancing through the night: from pulsating salsa and authentic, old school country, to cutting-edge alternative rock and Ella Fitzgerald-inspired jazz. For every audible flavor, ultra-chic hot spots and elegantly cool lounges will envelope you in pure fun. Check out 16th Street Mall, only 1 block from your hotel, showcasing the exciting New Year’s Eve fireworks display each year. Gaze into the night sky and marvel at the dazzling colors while joyously bringing in the new year.

    In your free time, relax inside the hotel with a book, and a drink, at the elegant Strata Bar, or soothe your muscles with a dip in the indoor heated pool.
