Location, location, location. The Palm is located right off the 16th Street Mall, a location that has caused the steakhouse considerable headaches -- and earned it a boycott by Occupy Denver that ended late last week when the national office of the Palm reversed its stance on the anti-camping ordinance. But that's not the only challenging location downtown: Elway's Downtown is in the Ritz-Carlton, which just won its fourth AAA Five-Diamond Rating -- despite being on the edge of a neighborhood that isn't exactly polished.
And that puts the hotel in a tough spot. Says foodcrazy:
The Ritz-Carlton looks so elegant sitting across the street from the Greyhound bus station.
