COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — For almost 100 years, Colorado Springs has been home to one of the country’s best-known historic hotels and resorts: the Broadmoor. Earlier this year, another hotel with a history opened downtown, the first new full-service hotel to open in the city in 27 years.
The Mining Exchange, part of the 29-hotel Wyndham Grand Collection, is also Colorado Springs’ only luxury boutique hotel.
Its 117 guest rooms and suites are in three historic downtown buildings. Architects made the most of the buildings’ architectural features and designed guest rooms outfitted with modern amenities but enhanced by features such as high ceilings and crown molding.
Some 10,000 square feet of meeting and function space includes three ballrooms. The Platinum Ballroom, with hardwood floors and brick walls, adjoins a second-floor terrace. The 3,317-square-foot Grand Ballroom has 15-foot ceilings. A 3,000-square-foot terrace is adjacent to the lobby bar.
In addition to an on-site fitness center, a full-service spa is planned. It will open next year.
“We have worked diligently to retrofit these exquisite buildings to make certain our guests have a world-class experience no matter what part of the of world they have previously experienced,” said owner Perry Sanders.
The hotel restaurant, Springs Orleans, has already made a name for itself, winning local awards for best Cajun restaurant and best new restaurant.
