Benny's at 7th and Grant - vibrant atmosphere. Traditional Tex-Mex fare. Nothing fancy about this place, just good food!

The Ramada Denver Downtown is within 2 miles of the museum, there is also a Days Inn Denver Downtown that is even closer - a little over a mile away.

I went today and it was two hours to see it pace fully. You enter the time the ticket said but you can stay at long as you want UNTIL 4:45.
