The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado Begins
$60 Million Two Year Renovation Project

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:

  • TAVERN GARDEN ROOM: The Tavern’s Garden Room will be rebuilt to give it a European conservatory feel with an abundance of florals added to the plant life. The Tavern will remain open for dining during this renovation. 
  • GOLDEN BEE:  The popular dining destination and watering hole for locals and guests alike will be expanded, almost doubling in size and will debut a new façade and covered rooftop, reminiscent of a 19th century London pub. 
  • ACTIVITY CENTER: The Broadmoor is adding an activity center in Broadmoor West featuring bowling lanes, billiards, board games, food and beverage offerings and more. The activity center is designed to appeal to families, teens and individuals, as well as special events and private group functions.
Completed by April 2014:
  • WEST LOBBY BAR: The West Lobby Bar will be redesigned and expanded to include a living room with a fireplace and an expansive outdoor terrace.
  • NEW ITALIAN RESTAURANT: To further complement the diversity of dining options at The Broadmoor, the restaurant will open with décor reminiscent of a historic Italian villa and a menu focused on authentic, high quality ingredients sourced from Italy.
  • BROADMOOR WEST: Expansion of rooms, baths and lobbies and redesign of the building exterior will give West the character and charm reminiscent of the historic main building. All rooms will feature five fixture marble baths with combination of terrace, balconies, French doors and Juliet balconies. Over the next two years, The Broadmoor will continue to announce further news surrounding property renovations as it continues to bolster its reputation as the premier location for meetings and events, wedding and leisure travelers while moving towards celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2018.
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.

The BROADMOOR is a member of Preferred Hotels and Resorts and Historic Hotels of America.
