Telluride, CO (Vocus/PRWEB) April 05, 2011
As many lodging properties in the travel and tourism industry begin to dig out from the “Great Recession,” some of the strongest are emerging on the heels of strategic investments designed to propel them into the next decade.
Mountain Lodge at Telluride, the upscale resort in southwest Colorado, is completing work on a two-year, $1 million investment in capital improvements and upgrades. “Mountain Lodge at Telluride has a long-term, strategic approach,” explains Neil Hastings, director of sales and marketing for the resort. “This investment helps assure that Mountain Lodge maintains its position as the best lodging value in the Telluride area.”
Additions, improvements and upgrades include:
- Wide-screen televisions in all 92 units
- iPod docking stations in all units
- Tempur-Pedic mattresses in all sleeper sofas
- Full dining service, new furnishings in The View restaurant
- Split-king beds in 21 of the lodge’s two-bedroom suites, allowing configuration as one king or two twin beds
- Upgraded bedding in all units
- Teak furniture, including three hammocks, for pool deck and surrounding area
- Resurfacing of all leather couches
- Painting in all units
- Digital in-room safes
- Refurbishment of steam room
- Resurfacing of swimming pool and in-ground hot tubs
“Each improvement adds flexibility and value,” says Hastings. For example, the addition of split-king beds in selected units offers greater flexibility to families with children, and provides added bedding inventory for ski clubs and ski councils. The resort also is conducting significant technology updates and upgrades in equipment. All noted additions and improvements are in addition to Mountain Lodge’s ongoing maintenance programs, Hastings adds.
“We are proud of what Mountain Lodge has come to represent,” says Hastings. “Significant investments such as these send the message to new and returning guests that we are serious about our services, amenities and reputation.”
