Summer Retreat: Gathering Your Group at Hotel Colorado
Summertime is ideal for gatherings away from home and office. Not only is the weather conducive to travel, Hotel Colorado’s meeting room doors and windows can be opened to let in fresh air, the restaurant menu has been refreshed for the season, and there are more options than ever for outdoor recreation.
The Grand Dame of Glenwood Springs, as Hotel Colorado is known, has been welcoming guests for close to 130 years. Experienced in hosting events of all sizes—intimate groups of family and friends to large gatherings of business professionals—the historic hotel dials in the details so you can relax, get to work or both!
Rooms to Relax or Regroup
With 130 rooms, hosting groups of all sizes is a snap at Hotel Colorado. Guest rooms are beautifully appointed with high-quality bedding and furnishings that provide a sense of place. Though built before the introduction of central air, all Hotel Colorado guest rooms are equipped with AC units for climate-controlled comfort on even the warmest summer days.
Accommodations include signature suites, classic rooms, accessible rooms, and adjoining options for families and groups. Hotel Colorado is also dog-friendly, offering guests with canine companions the convenience of having their best friend nearby.
Plenty of Space to Meet
With 10,000 square feet of elegant, modern meeting and banquet space, Hotel Colorado welcomes guests to feel at ease and relaxed in a group setting. Whether the reason for your gathering is a wedding, family reunion or a business meeting, today’s event attendees want assurance that health and safety measures at destinations remain a top priority. Hotel Colorado staff members are educated and trained to follow hospitality industry best practices including adhering to stringent guidelines for guest room and public space sanitization. On a breezier note, one of the perks of planning a summertime group retreat at Hotel Colorado is that many event rooms have windows and doors that can be flung open to let in the fresh mountain air for added all-natural ventilation.
A Sweet Summer Menu
The start of a fresh season is reason enough to roll out a new menu at Hotel Colorado Restaurant and Bar. Recently revamped, it features elevated comfort food favorites as well as fine dining options with locally sourced ingredients such as chicken, lamb and Colorado sweet corn. For catered events, the menu is just as robust and appealing. Event guests also can pop into Legends Coffee & Gift Shop as needed for coffee drinks, homemade bakery items and grab-and-go meals.
With the arrival of warmer temperatures, diners have the option to eat alfresco in the hotel’s courtyard and enjoy drinks and cocktails from Coppertop Bar. In addition to beautiful blooms and landscaping, the outdoor space is centered around a fountain filled with bright orange goldfish.
One of the advantages of hosting groups at Hotel Colorado is its central location in Glenwood Springs, ideal for post-event exploring. Within easy walking distance of downtown, Hotel Colorado is close to shopping, dining and activities. Attractions such as Glenwood Hot Springs Pool, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, Iron Mountain Hot Springs, Yampah Spa & Vapor Caves, Hanging Lake and Glenwood Vaudeville Revue are all close by. Event attendees also can easily book raft trips, rent bikes or venture out on hiking trails.
