Depends on what you prefer. I prefer to stay close to the client site and drive into Denver proper. I don't like traffic.

Denver traffic is getting worse and worse as more people move into CO. I would stay closer to the client, the commute isn’t worth it.

I would love to work in a project in based out of Denver , bring me in OP :)

Plenty of hotels and restaurants in DTC. You’ll like it. Plus to get to downtown you can jump on literail and it’s 15-20 minutes. Stay in DTC. Recommend the Marriott

I have an opportunity to take a contract to hire position with a previous client hotel chain at a 60% increase in my current salary. The catch is that it’s only for 6 mos. If I staff after that, it drops to ~170K, but with great benefits and position. Or I could not; could be cut loose, or move on. Any advice? Hoping to hear a success story, but I’ll take anything.
