Glenwood Springs, Colorado (Vocus/PRWEB) March 07, 2011
In the early days of Glenwood Springs' resort history, the Hotel Glenwood was a legendary downtown bed and board place where Doc Holliday lodged and President Theodore Roosevelt attended swanky events. The new Hotel Glenwood Springs takes the best of the past and combines it with the hospitality and amenities of the present. The result is a unique, independent, quality lodging option inspired by historic precedent.
The new Hotel Glenwood Springs is held by Caverns Centre LLC, a group comprised of local Roaring Fork Valley individuals. True to their Western roots and independent ideas, the group felt it was paramount for this property to be an autonomous hotel versus a branded chain.
"Our guests tell us they prefer our local hotel to a corporate franchise; many visitors feel the cookie-cutter approach detracts from the connection to a town’s culture and the prevailing sense of place," says Scott Olpin, General Manager of The Hotel Glenwood Springs. "With a chain or nationally flagged hotel, people get the same basic product regardless of location. We think Glenwood Springs is far too special a destination for this approach. At the Hotel Glenwood Springs we welcome guests who are seeking distinctive decor and experiences, high quality amenities, comfort, and value." Typical rates are quite competitive and start at $89 for a double queen room, $99 for a king room, and $139 for a king kitchenette suite, depending upon the season and availability.
In the smoke-free 72-room Hotel Glenwood Springs, unique amenities include fireplace rooms, select suites with whirlpools, a fitness center and free wireless internet access. Most unique of its onsite amenities is the indoor Splash Pool Family Fun Center, with its kid-friendly zero depth entry, slides, fountains, water basketball, and whirlpool. The Hotel Glenwood Springs is six blocks from the renowned Glenwood Hot Springs Pool, and is literally at the base of the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, a top ranked amusement park with a tram to the top, tours of ancient underground caverns, thrill rides and amusements that appeal to all ages. Packages are available that bundle lodging stays at the Hotel Glenwood Springs with Glenwood Hot Springs Pool passes and day passes to Glenwood Caverns. A popular value-added option is a free movie and pizza package, available to all guests staying for a third consecutive night.
The hotel is positioned at the confluence of the Colorado and Roaring Fork Rivers, which afford world class fly fishing and rafting. The rivers can be accessed by a short two block walk from the front door of the Hotel Glenwood Springs. For cyclists, walkers and joggers, the trailhead for the 44-mile Rio Grande Trail, a bike route that goes all the way from Glenwood Springs to Aspen, Colorado, is just steps from the property.
The extensive list of amenities continues, making the Hotel Glenwood Springs an unbeatable place to stay for business travelers, couples, immediate and extended families, and groups. The property has a business center for e-mail and fax correspondence, a 1,000 square foot meeting space, complimentary newspapers, cable TV, onsite laundry, movie rentals, inclusive rates for up to five family members in a double queen or suite room, and even pet-friendly rooms for well-mannered dogs.
Business and corporate travelers enjoy the centralized location with ample free parking and free wireless. Very large rooms contribute to a productive and comfortable stay.
The Hotel Glenwood Springs may indeed rewrite history, for redefining distinctive leisure and business stays in quality, independent accommodations in Glenwood Springs, an extraordinary Colorado destination.
