Cheyenne Mountain Resort // (c) 2010 Cheyenne Mountain Resort
In honor of its 25th anniversary, the AAA Four-Diamond Cheyenne Mountain Resort, located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado Springs, has begun a complete $20 million renovation, the first ever property-wide renovation for the resort. The renovation, which began in May and is expected to be complete in spring 2011, will encompass common areas, landscaping, guestrooms, meeting spaces and more.
Denver-based Ricca + Newmark Design has been engaged to create the resort’s new interiors. The design is intended to carry the scenic views from the outside in and engage guests in total immersion of the Cheyenne Mountain experience. Inspired by a mountain lodge setting with a more-residential feel, traditional furnishings will be mixed with plush textiles and dramatic nature-inspired artwork.
Common areas, including the resort pool, Sundance Terrace, Grand Rivers Terrace, Cheyenne Kids Club space, Will Rogers Lounge and Pineview Restaurant will also be part of the renovation, receiving new furniture; landscaping throughout the resort will be updated with several new water features being added; meeting spaces will be equipped with new carpeting, wall coverings and furnishings; and all technologies will be updated, including sound systems, lighting and rear projection screens.
All 316 guestrooms, as well as the resort’s five suites, will also receive new, high-end furnishings, linens and fixtures, as well as new flooring, and bathrooms will be completely upgraded. Rooms will be equipped with new top-of-the-line electronics, including flat-screen televisions and iHome MP3 clock radios.
