Navigator Michael Gayle revels in the eclectic spirit of Downtown Denver and is untiring in his determination to help guests experience it to the maximum.After over 10 years in the hospitality industry, the proud Coloradan landed his dream role by becoming Lead Navigator at the Renaissance Denver Downtown City Center Hotel. “I love exploring new venues in Denver and the surrounding areas and sharing it with guests,” he explains. “I enjoy getting feedback when I send them to a new and exciting place.”Denver is not short on excitement. Surrounded by mountains and one mile above sea level, Colorado’s biggest city has a unique buzz that draws in all types of visitors. The downtown area overflows with attractions — from famous architecture to happy hour bars, museums to music venues. Spanish-speaking Michael is right at home in the cosmopolitan setting. He enjoys the vibrant street music scene (“you can always find a great place to stop by and hear a local music group performing”) and the challenge of adding to his list of favorite haunts, which already includes a menswear store where you can find designer labels, a rip-roaring bar serving pastries, ice creams and drinks, and a late-night cocktail joint.So how does he go about finding these hidden gems? “I have a great Front Desk Team that loves to explore downtown as much as I do. We keep each other updated on the latest goings on in the area.”Outside of work, Michael counts nature photography as one of his major hobbies. With the photogenic Rocky Mountains on the horizon, he could hardly be better placed.
