It is not a surprise. The downturn in the economic climate has put most hotel construction and renovation in a deep freeze. Few properties are moving forward with capital expenditures geared at improving the overall guest experience and enhancing meeting space. However, that is not the case at The Broadmoor.
Work began in December, 2009 on three projects totaling $7.5 million that are directly aimed at future guest and meeting experiences, and they are all taking place in Broadmoor West and West Tower.
West Tower - Guest Room Renovation
The West Tower opened in 1995. The building highlights some of the best mountain, lake and golf course views on the property. The 148 rooms and suites of West Tower now feature all new FF&E (furniture, fixtures and equipment) including carpet, wall covering, draperies, fabrics, paint, artwork, new higher end furnishings, new bright work, televisions and shower assist bars in the baths. The exquisite Gaylord Suite sports all new custom furnishings, carpet, draperies and bedding, in addition to a new dining room area and beautifully appointed furniture and planters on its expansive outdoor deck.
Broadmoor West Lobby
Originally opened in 1976 and completely renovated and expanded in 2000, Broadmoor West will also sport a new look including new carpet, paint and furnishings for the all lobby areas as well as the popular West Lobby Bar. In addition, the Lobby Bar's outdoor seating is being expanded with new furnishings and outdoor heaters.
Broadmoor West Meeting Rooms
Designed to enhance a Broadmoor meeting experience, the newly renovated West meeting rooms feature high quality décor, technological capability and diverse functionality with the addition of four new meeting / conference rooms that include a new pre-function area with a custom designed and beautifully appointed break area. All existing meeting rooms are redone to include new ceiling mounted video projectors and dropdown video screens. The public areas, corridors and restrooms are completely renovated and all meeting space in Broadmoor West have new ceilings, lighting, wall covering, carpet, millwork and trim.
The Broadmoor is the longest-running consecutive winner of both the AAA Five-Diamond and the Forbes/Mobil Travel Guide Five-Star awards. For more information on The Broadmoor please call 800.634.7711 or visit http://www.broadmoor.com.
