LoDo is a unique area with loft/condo/apartment style living and great walkability to restaurants and entertainment. As others have said, you can expect a 30-35 minute commute if there are no weather, accidents or road work problems. If a no-maintenance lifestyle and a great walkable neighborhood are your top priorities, you might also check Congress Park, Capitol Hill, Stapleton and Lowry.
Rent prices are at a 7-year high in the Denver Metro area. If you desire something less expensive, look in southeast Denver - perhaps around Indian Creek or the University of Denver. You have access to light rail that will take you to LoDo, and the commute to Buckley will only be about 20-25 minutes. Jump on craigslist to check for rentals.

Welcome to Denver! :-) A lot depends on what sort of amenities and lifestyle you're looking for. Other areas would certainly be closer and very nice, but really not the LoDo experience. Also, are you planning to buy or rent?
Feel free to give us a call and we'd be happy to chat about different areas and how they might fit in to your expectations. Like everything, it's always a matter of trade-offs and priorities.
Best of luck, and welcome!
