COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)– One of Colorado’s premiere resorts is getting $60 million worth of renovations. The Broadmoor is getting an upgrade.
Philip Anschutz bought the resort last fall. His plans include nearly doubling the size of the Golden Bee Bar and updating the Tavern Garden Room to give it a conservatory feel.
“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.
The first phase of renovations was completed this month. 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.
More upgrades can be expected as The Broadmoor approaches its 100th anniversary in 2018.
Opened in 1918, The Broadmoor is situated at the gateway to the Colorado Rocky Mountains in Colorado Springs.
