Glenwood Hot Springs unveils multimillion-dollar lodge renovation
It’s a new year, and for Glenwood Hot Springs’ guests that means 107 new rooms. In 2013, guests can relax in remodeled rooms that reflect a tranquil ambiance, while technology upgrades add modern convenience to the surrounding comfort.
The comprehensive, two-phase, $2 million renovation project commenced on April 1, 2011, with the final phase completed on December 24, 2011. Each room received a transformational floor-to-ceiling makeover. When guests walk through the door to their room, they are greeted with a soothing color palette of sage greens and warm neutral hues, combined with invigorating splashes of cinnamon.
“The rooms were designed to echo a serene environment, and at the same time provide our guests with all the extras that make a stay at Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge a truly one-of-a-kind experience,” said Jeremy Gilley, Director of Sales and Revenue for Glenwood Hot Springs and Spa of the Rockies.
Even beds are given the spa treatment, with bed linens as white as snow topped with a waffle-weave comforter cover and a plush throw. A mahogany table and chairs provide ample room for work or recreational endeavors. Sheer drapes on the large picture windows and balcony doors allow for views and the warmth of filtered sunlight when desired, while blackout drapes offer privacy.
Not as noticeable, but every bit as vital to a relaxing getaway, are the technology upgrades. A 42-inch LED flat screen television takes center stage, and is HDMI- and Cat5-compatible for high quality audio and video output. Bedside docking stations for iPods and smart phones help keep these devices charged and always handy.
Built into each side of the mahogany headboard are two LED reading lights. The focused beam provides just the right amount of light for reading while allowing others in the room to drift off to sleep. Custom cabinetry conceals a mini-fridge, microwave and a state-of-the-art safe for storing valuables. Other amenities in each room include a coffeemaker, complimentary wireless internet, an iron and ironing board. Secure ski, snowboard and bike storage is available on the premises as well.
Naturally, spa treatment extends to the bathroom, a modern alcove for rejuvenation. A freestanding, residential-style vanity with granite countertops is topped with the same bath and shower essentials used at the Spa of the Rockies. The shower enclosure, decorated with luminous glass accents of olive, gold and chocolate, channels a vacation state of mind. No need to tote along a hairdryer, one is provided.
