The Omni Interlocken Resort A Hotel Review

Best Lacrosse Hotel in Denver:

The boys were excited to once again head out to Denver this past weekend and participate in The Warrior Rocky Mountain Lacrosse Jamboree, one of the largest youth lacrosse events in the country, and the fifth largest lacrosse event in the world.

We hit the road late Friday night with massive complaints by the boys that they were going to miss the dive in movie and late night play with their friends at the The Omni, a Four-Diamond award-winning hotel that bravely welcomes over two hundred lacrosse players, and their families, at this time every year.

The next morning, I approached one of the Hotel Managers, Chad Oaks, and asked him if he was battening down the hatches before the Lacrosse brood arrived and he surprised me by saying how they look forward to this weekend every year. Love that positive attitude!

Perhaps the novelty has worn off but I think it’s more attributed to Tucker getting easier, playing on the sidelines with all the other sprouting rough and tumble siblings instead of clinging to my side and chanting, “when can we go home?” What also makes things run smoother is that the boys, no longer wanting to be subject to mommys embarrassing improv techniques, now pack their own sport bags.

The games are getting so exciting as Axel and Brevitt grow bigger and more proficient with their sticks. I surprise myself as I take over the cheering for Wade who has become self appointed water boy, Adam Sandler style. Shots are made, goals are scored and parents release some steam onto the fields. Reconvening by the pool for sliders, Grilled Shrimp salads, virgin Pina Colada’s for the kids and loaded Margarita’s for the parents, we celebrate the day and the beauty of the sport.

(Axel Scores a Goal!)

Later that afternoon I lay down on the comfy lounge chairs with good friends and sighed a deep breathe of gratitude. My first true dose of sunshine warmed my winterized skin and I watched as the children cannon-balled off the stress of the games into the pool. It’s a scene alright but for some reason the energy felt slightly calmer this year.

This year, instead of swinging between catering to the wild rumpus in the pool and the wedding vows taking place on the adjacent field, the hotel? brought in Aztec dancers and good times were had as our little warriors joined them in an ancient cultural dance.

As day turned to night the father’s huddled closer together to exchange mountain biking stories and? family trials and tribulations and we mother’s had some good laughs at our super woman lifestyles. As for our boy and girl lacrosse stars, well they are getting bigger and more attractive by the minute and with that comes that magical time in life when it’s not only about how many chicken fights you can have in the pool.? I’m telling you what, I’m thinking that the locals are catching on.

All in all, it was another great weekend and even though our boys didn’t make it to the championships, they sure had a good time trying.

  1. Jillianwhere were we in high school during all these lacrosse jamborees???? How could we have missed them..can you only imagine if the Wernick girls showed up!!!! (we must have been studying)
    What an incredible family weekend you all must have friends, with friends as well. Once again, jelouse (ok, tried to spell jelouse a million ways and still cant get it right!) Hayden, Tasha and I were not there. Sounds so fun and exciting.
    Congratulations for Brevitts team winning!!!!
    I love the cheerleaders on the side line being Wade and his father! I am actually the lunatic mother on Haydens side lines yelling and screaming (when I actually have no clue of what direction the ball is supposed to go and which goal its supposed to go into!!!!)
    I do hope you did not offend any of the lacrosse mothers this time around in your writingthey were all probably drinking starbucks ice tea when it was really wine, around you and dancing naked on the pool tablesuntil you walkedin the room!
    Love you
