COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Broadmoor hotel has announced a two-year, $60 million plan to renovate Broadmoor West, Golden Bee pub, the Tavern’s Garden Room and replace Charles Court with an Italian restaurant.
The bulk of the renovations will integrate the 1976 Broadmoor West with the rest of the 1918 Broadmoor property. Cupolas and accent paintings mimicking the main building will be added to the exterior of Broadmoor West. Guest rooms will be upgraded with balconies and renovated baths. The work on Broadmoor West should be completed April 1, 2014.
The 50-year-old Golden Bee pub’s entrance will be redone and its seating area will be double. The bar will not lose its 17th-century London pub ambience. The patio dining area of the Tavern’s Garden Room will resemble a European conservatory after its makeover.
A new Italian restaurant will replace Charles Court, adding diversity to the resort’s dining options. An activity center with bowling, billiards and other family-friendly entertainment is also planned.
“It’s really positive to see them making those renovations,” said Chelsy Murphy, public relations manager for the Colorado Springs Convention and Visitors Bureau. “They realize the importance of always improving and always expanding such a standalone property.”
