So I'm flying into DIA early Sunday morning and taking the train downtown. Going to hang out downtown till my friend gets into town with a car mid afternoon. Any ideas what I can do with luggage so I'm not dragging it around downtown for 6 hours? Steve M

Post up at a Starbucks. I've had this issue a lot and never figured out a great solution. ChossKing

Find a cool person who lives close to downtown and will be home and ask nicely to stash it at their apartment. Mike13

Walk in a hotel and slip the receptionist a $20 to put your bags behind the desk for a few hours? Seth Jones

Greyhound station huh? I swore of the Greyhound after spending 53 hours on one getting from OR to MN, but maybe I could stomach just being in the station for a few minutes. Thanks for the advice!

What happens if you simply don't take it off the belt at baggage claim? Won't the airline hold it for you until you come pick it up? SinRopa

The closest gym that I know of to Union would be Movement Denver, and it would not a be short walk.
The Greyhound station in Denver doesn't have terribly large lockers, so this may depend on the size of your bag. A few years ago when I was passing through I ended up just carrying my 90L backpack full of stuff with me because it wouldn't fit in the lockers.
Wilderness Exchange is within walking distance of Union and they require you leave a bag with them when you go into the store, they may be willing to stash your bag for a few hours. No guarantee on that, but an option if you can't find anything else. They are only open 10am-6pm on Sundays, so you may have to wait around a bit or pick it up early depending on when you get there and will be leaving.

Hotel is by a great option--there are many downtown. No one will know you aren't a guest. gumbotron

There is a hotel in Union Station, the Crawford. Maybe call them ahead 720.460.3700 or try the $20 tip to the front desk clerk. Next closest option is the Oxford.

greyhound station should be your last resort.
