The Broadmoor renovation to be completed in May 2014

The Broadmoor announced the details of the second and final phase of renovations in its $100 million, multi-year renovation and expansion project, which started in November 2013, and is to be completed in May this year.

Focusing on the renovation and enhancement of the original Broadmoor West building, the second phase of renovations includes the addition of a new Adam D. Tihany designed Italian restaurant, renovated and expanded guestrooms and a new health-inspired restaurant.

Broadmoor West renovations include the redesign and expansion of guestrooms with an additional 85 square feet to 200 square feet added per room, living rooms with new decorative lighting, chandeliers, furnishings, carpet and draperies, as well as all-new, five-fixture marble baths added to each bathroom.

A three-story addition to the original West building adds 31 guest rooms and suites, bringing The Broadmoor’s total guestroom count to 775. Four new suites have panoramic views of the property, Cheyenne Lake, and the Cheyenne Mountain backdrop.

Expanding The Broadmoor’s culinary program, Broadmoor West welcomes a brand new Adam D. Tihany designed Italian restaurant, Ristorante del Lago. Situated on the western edge of Cheyenne Lake, the new dining destination offers a traditional Mediterranean villa appearance to complement a menu of Italian regional cuisine and an Italian dominated wine list. The restaurant features an outdoor patio offering lake views, a private dining room, an expansive “community” dining table, a wine room, charcuterie and cheese cellars and an exhibition kitchen with a wood burning oven and Rotissiere.

Bar Del Lago, also an Adam D. Tihany design, will be expanded and updated with a traditional Italian appearance to include custom millwork, additional outdoor seating, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and vintage wine and liquor displays. A lakeside entry will be added to both Risorante del Lago and Bar Del Lago, as well as an internal connection between the two.

Play, The Broadmoor’s retro-inspired restaurant and activity center located on the lobby level of Broadmoor West, remains open during the renovations.

The Broadmoor West lobby is updated with an expanded concierge and front desk area, fresh décor, and interior design. Stained glass skylights, marble floors with custom stone insets, detailed millwork on the walls and ceilings, woven rugs, and custom decorative chandeliers are added to harmonize the look of the space with the rest of the property’s interior facade.

The entry drive and porte-cochere of Broadmoor West is transformed with custom cast bronze column caps, cast stone balustrade, a new entry fountain, stone flooring, iron work, a new decorative drive surface and complementary landscaping.

Over the next year, The Broadmoor will continue to announce further news surrounding The Broadmoor’s Ranch at Emerald Valley, the opening of Ristorante del Lago and details on the newest addition to The Broadmoor Wilderness Experience, Cloud Camp, opening late summer of 2014.

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 golf courses and 744 lodging rooms and suites. Amenities include a spa and fitness center, tennis program, 26 retail boutiques and 19 restaurants, cafés and lounges including new distinct concept, PLAY at The Broadmoor, as well as renovated Golden Bee and Tavern. In August 2013, The Broadmoor opened The Ranch at Emerald Valley, a retreat in the heart of Pike National Forest. In May 2014, the resort will open a wilderness retreat, Cloud Camp, on Cheyenne Mountain, 3,000 feet above The Broadmoor.

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