If you’ve ever been to Denver’s airport, there is a good chance you probably muttered, “Why is this airport so far outside the city?” A drive from downtown to the airport is a solid 30 miles. The airport hotel district doesn’t provide much relief as the shuttle rides are pretty lengthy.
A lot of the ‘rural’ pain looks to be changing soon as DIA is currently constructing a 519 room Westin connected to DIA as well as a high speed train into the city.
I hate to get so excited about this since it’s still a couple years out, but this promotional video makes the new project look so awesome with the dramatic music. It also appears most people hanging out at DIA will now be required to wear suits when the project is completed.
Is it possible the US is finally going to have a cool airport?!
