The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado Begins
Colorado Springs, CO—May 30, 2012—The Broadmoor announced today a $60 million renovation over the next two years, strengthening its position as one of the preeminent resorts in America. The multi-phase renovation includes the expansion and redesign of guestrooms and suites and extensive updates to food and beverage outlets and meetings, events and activity facilities, which, added to the service-oriented reputation of The Broadmoor, elevates the overall guest experience.
"After many months of planning, we are extremely pleased to embark on this multi-faceted renovation. The designs perfectly complement The Broadmoor’s classic ambiance, refinement and original grandeur," said Steve Bartolin, President, The Broadmoor.
In May 2012, the first phase of renovations was completed. This included the re-opening of the Southlake building guestrooms and suites and a new look for Cheyenne Lodge, one of The Broadmoor’s premier meeting and event facilities. The Southlake building now boasts a new exterior and landscaping, new entry vestibules, 16 new patios and 21 newly renovated rooms, of which 8 are suites.
The Broadmoor’s 6,300 square-foot Cheyenne Lodge, offering both indoor and outdoor conference and event space with views overlooking the mountains and Colorado Springs, has a new look that features a handsome, rustic exterior with timbers and split logs, capturing the essence of a true Colorado lodge.
Originally designed as a “rest” chapel by Julie Penrose in 1918, the historic Pauline Chapel, located across from Broadmoor West, has been carefully restored. Non-denominational services are held every Sunday. The chapel is also available for weddings.
Completed by April 2013:
Opened in 1918, The Broadmoor is situated at the gateway to the Colorado Rocky Mountains in Colorado Springs. The resort encompasses 3,000 acres with three championship golf courses, 744 lodging rooms and suites, including the new Cottage suites. Amenities include an award-winning spa and fitness center, nationally recognized tennis program, 25 retail boutiques and 18 restaurants, cafes and lounges.
