Here are the latest career changes for movers and shakers in the meetings and events and hospitality industries in the Centennial State.
When visiting, Glenwood Springs, Colorado, it’s hard to miss two of Walter Devereux’s lasting legacies. One of these attractions, Hotel Colorado, is in the second phase of a major transformation. First, let’s look at the hotel’s heritage before providing a glimpse at what’s underway.
Location: At the confluence of the Colorado and Roaring Fork Rivers, between Aspen and Vail, Glenwood Springs is 160 miles west of Denver and 90 miles east of Grand Junction on Interstate 70.
Two of Glenwood Springs’ most iconic properties will be under the same ownership again after a 70-year hiatus if a purchase agreement goes through as planned in early 2017. Walter Devereux opened Glenwood Hot Springs in 1888, followed by Hotel Colorado across the street in 1893.
Nature and man collaborated to create the ideal meeting spot in Glenwood Springs. This robust and friendly community is snugged into the Roaring Fork Valley, where two rivers—the Colorado and Roaring Fork—meet. It’s surrounded by snowcapped peaks and is ideally situated between the famous ski towns of Aspen and Vail. Getting there is easy. Visitors can either drive a scenic three hours from Denver or fly into their choice of four nearby airports.
