The Hyatt Regency Convention Center in Denver is pretentious, to say the least. And Altitude Restaurant on the ground floor is no exception. The prices are sky-high, and therefore our expectation was for at least decent food. We were sadly disappointed. Service was slow and confused -- they weren't even sure who our waitperson was supposed to be. The only good service was from our busboy. My split pea soup was watery and salty, with just a few sad shards of pea at the bottom of the bowl. They didn't provide us with any bread until we asked, and what they finally brought smelled mouldy and tasted worse. Totally inedible. The six layer chocolate cake was mediocre at best -- my husband and I are both chocoholics, but I could stomach only a few bites and he stopped at one small taste. Poor cake texture, uninspired flavor, unappealing frosting. My husband's ""warm chocolate-chip cookie ice cream sandwich"" concoction was nearly as disappointing: the cookies were so hard and stale that he could hardly cut through them. The only really good part of the meal was the warm chocolate-Grand Marnier shooter that accompanied the cake, but that was certainly not worth the price of admission! If you want slow service and expensive, disappointing food, this is the place to go. But if you want excellent food and service, go down to the Brown Palace Hotel and eat at one of their famed restaurants.
Cons: food, service, price
