Sheraton Steamboat Resort & Villas completes upgrade

The Sheraton Steamboat Resort & Villas is preparing to unveil more than $16 million in property renovations and upgrades in time to kick off the summer 2014 travel season. Adding to the winter debut of 56 new Mountain Suites, the Sheraton Steamboat Resort's fitness center was expanded, and the mountainside pool was completely redesigned.

From deck to décor, the pool area is now a mountainside oasis featuring the addition of stone fireplaces, an in-pool hot tub and cabanas. Additionally, the pool area now flows directly into the new Breezeway Café.

The fitness center was also expanded with the addition of new men's and women's locker rooms, steam rooms and Life Fitness cardio and weight equipment.

Located at the base of the mountain and steps from the gondola, the Sheraton Steamboat's addition of the studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom Mountain Suites brings the resort's total room count to 285. Each of the Mountain Suites features granite countertops, either mini or full kitchens, washer and dryer, five-piece bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, Sheraton Sweet Sleeper II Beds and more. Many of the suites are designed as "lock-offs", offering guests the option to book lodging similar to a high-end, three-bedroom condominium, but with all of the services and amenities of a hotel.

The Mountain Suites feature a “Colorado Mountain contemporary style” highlighted by natural stone gas fireplaces. Modern kitchens with stainless steel appliances, cabinetry and granite counter tops flow into sitting areas where custom furniture awaits, complete with built-in outlets. Natural wood accent tables, artwork including log slices and photography collages bring in the beauty of the surrounding mountains. Soaking tubs, glass-enclosed showers, built-in storage and washer/dryer combos are also provided.

Sheraton has more than 400 hotels in nearly 70 countries.  It recently completed a $6 billion global revitalization, and is now in the middle of an $8 billion global expansion over the next three years. Sheraton is owned by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide.
