Aurora is so eager to have Gaylord Entertainment build its giant convention center/hotel/resort there that it's pushing for a $300 million tax subsidy for the project -- but only if Gaylord doesn't use the word "Denver" in the name of the hotel. Other options?
Here's our top five runners-up:
6. Brown-Cloud Palace
5. Mile Hyatt Suburb
4. The Aurora Tauer
3. $800 Million Home on the Range
2. The Hotel a $60 Cab Ride Away From a Good Restaurant
