  • Denver fall trip

    Parents and I are possibly going to Denver later in the fall. We are planning to stay at the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center. Dad has a business conference in Denver near the Hyatt. This will be our annual family trip. Last year my parents, my grandma and I went to Cooperstown NY for Columbus Day weekend and it was great. We are planning to do one or two annual family trips. The first night we were there, I will have to eat dinner alone since the welcome reception is only for spouses. I will also have to eat dinner alone on the night of the farewell reception. The hotel restaurant has a menu online. I can't tell if it's IC friendly. Has anyone eaten at this hotel before? Is this a safe area? I never been to Denver before. After this trip we are planning to visit some of mom's family in Seattle.

    We are going to fly but I try and get aisle seat closest to bathroom, either in first class or economy. I find that the wider seats on airplanes (first class/business class) is more comfortable for my bladder. It's just that the possible turbulence will make me want to go more often. I'm sure I get looks from passengers whenever I get up to go.

      I hope you have a wonderful time. I known that you can order pretty much anything from a nice hotel kitchen. You only have to ask for what you want. Such as a steak plain, no seasonings or grilled chicken, plain no seasonings or sauces, baked potatoes everything on the side, etc.
      Also, about traveling on an airplane. Even before I was dx'd with IC I was constantly in the bathroom. What I told myself when I started to get self conscious was, " "What do I care??? I'm never going to see these people again!!!". With everything going on with airline security, you might want to tell your flight attendant that you have a bladder condition that may cause you to go to the bathroom more than usual. I know in first class they are very accommodating about any needs that you have and don't ask a lot of questions. I doubt that you will have any problems.
      Have a great trip!!

        I like going on sightseeing cruises, but I doubt Denver has one. I know that Rocky Mountain National Park is about an hour away. I also would like to go on Haunted tours, but mom wouldn't be interested. We are there from September 20-23. Dad would be at the conference all of those dates. I'm sure there are historical sites to visit within the area.
