Grand, historic, and simply perfect!
Posted Jul 7, 2015
My July 4th Holiday included a stop in Glenwood Springs for some hiking, biking, dining, and relaxation. I selected the Hotel Colorado primarily because they were dog friendly (we had the four-legged travel companion with us, so it wasn't optional), but was overwhelmed by how lovely the property was, how comfy our room was, and how accommodating and friendly the staff of the Hotel Colorado were.
The title of my review refers to the historic element of this hotel. That means that central air isn't something you're going to find in a room, which for us was absolutely fine since they provided a box fan for us. Placed it in the window and all was good. Also, the hotel was very quiet, clean, and our bed was very comfortable, which was helpful after an active day of hiking and biking. Oh...so you don't have a bike? No problem. The hotel can recommend one of several shops where you can rent one. Want to try your hand at white water rafting? They can set you up for your trip on site. Need a swimsuit or coverup for the hot springs? Also covered. The hotel literally has anything that you can possibly want to complete your trip.
The location of this hotel cannot be beat. You're right across the street from the hot springs, and within walking distance to some amazing dining options. Steaks, brewpubs...you name it, you can walk to get it.
Glenwood Springs is a GREAT starting point to explore so many places, and the Hotel Colorado is a fantastic place to stay. Highly recommended!
