Travel & Transportation

Below are several way to make your way to the 2017 Summit. We have listed the options in order of most to least in carbon savings.

By Bike

It is recommended to store your own bicycle in your room. There is no bicycle rack or bike garage at the hotel.  If you would like to rent a bicycle, visit a Denver B-cycle station and return at a nearby station. The nearest station to Sheraton Denver Downtown is 2 blocks away at 1550 Glenarm. This is a fun, easy, and affordable (not to mention sustainable) way to get around the city and often it can also be the quickest way!

By Light Rail

Offering over 30 convenient stations on several lines, RTD Light Rail gets you to where you need to be! Convenient stations near the Sheraton Denver downtown located at 16th Street & Stout, 16th Street & California and Union Station. 

By Bus

RTD Local area bus service runs 365 days a year. With over 10,000 stops and convenient online trip planning, maneuvering the bus system is a breeze.   

 From DEN Airport to Venue
