In a review excerpt, Fodor’s writes of the Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge, “The town of Glenwood Springs was named for the natural hot springs that provide mineral water to this attractive property.

No matter the season, a visit to Glenwood Hot Springs is a definitive Colorado experience and activity. Two natural, outdoor, hot mineral springs pools are the main attraction. Soothe sore muscles in the 104 degree therapy pool or splash, play, dive and swim in the large pool that hovers between 90 – 93 degrees and spans the length of two city blocks! A large deck, complimentary lounge chairs, and plenty of shady grassy areas with views all around make it an inviting place to relax and unwind. Acting as a visual bridge between the resort’s fabled past and its modern incarnation is the historic 1888 bathhouse, a landmark building; it now houses the Spa of the Rockies and the Glenwood Hot Springs Athletic Club.
The Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge is a 107-room hotel offering a variety of comfortable accommodations that include standard and deluxe rooms, large family suites, and even a Jacuzzi suite.
