The Aspen Times reports on the Hotel Jerome's imminent massive renovation. The hotel is planning to close for more than four months—from August 2 until at least December 15—to accommodate the renovation project. "The hotel hasn't seen a remodel like this since 1985," said GM Tony DiLucia. The project involves, but is not limited to, the following: a new look for all 94 rooms; improved technology in each room; new heating and air-conditioning system; plumbing repairs; an expansion of the Wheeler Room; transformation of the Century Room; new lobby furniture; and a spa, with three rooms. The Hotel Jerome is owned by Don Wilson and DRW Trading, of Chicago. It is managed by Auberge Resorts.
