To give guests a top-of-the-line meeting and events experience, Lion Square Lodge, managed by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, has announced the start of a $1.25 million renovation of its meeting space. The project will include significant upgrades and design enhancements that embrace the property’s rustic lodge atmosphere and stunning surrounding scenery.

We’re extremely excited to start this latest project and breathe new life into the property’s impressive meeting space," said Bill Anderson, vice president of operations, Wyndham Vacation Rentals, West region. “From a major exterior overhaul to a new restaurant and upgraded units, modern luxury is behind every corner.

The renovation project will continue through July 2018, debuting in time for the fall and winter seasons. Enhancements will include new decorative ceilings and LED lighting, a sound mitigation system, state-of-the-art IT and audio/visual systems, and new carpeting throughout the conference area lobby, foyer and meeting rooms. Upgraded design finishes will be incorporated as well, from fresh paint and wood trim to new furniture and artwork.

The property’s meeting locations and spaces range from small boardrooms to large multi-purpose conference rooms that can accommodate groups of 10 upwards to 200. On-site staff can handle every detail in planning, from group lodging, meeting spaces and audio/visual requirements to catering and group activities. Five different meeting rooms and 5,700 square feet of function space make planning the perfect event seamless, while two rooms go even further, with floor-to-ceiling windows and walkout balcony space overlooking Vail Mountain.

Lion Square Lodge accommodations range from private hotel rooms to deluxe condominiums. Combining the comforts of home with the conveniences of a hotel stay, guests are treated to a range of services and amenities including daily maid service, local shuttles, and ski/snowboard rentals and valet, along with an onsite pool, hot tubs, a dry sauna, and a fitness center.

"It’s this destination meeting experience that leaves an impression, whether you’re in the middle of a meeting or taking a break outside on one of the nearby trails.” added Anderson. 

Origin Red Rocks, a debut property from the Origin Hotel Collection, has opened its doors just 15 miles west of Denver, in Golden, Colorado. The historic gold rush town is known for its outdoor music, red sandstone rocks, outdoor adventure opportunities and its beer (the town brews more beer than any other town in America).

 

There is not denying that something big has happened with Colorado’s culinary scene over the past decade. Throughout the state, from the Front Range and mountains to the Western Slope, creative chef/owners, research and development chefs for catering companies and resort executive chefs are using loads of local ingredients and shaking up menus and atmospheres in unexpected and delightful ways.

Blann will work closely with Executive Chef Dennis Kaniger at C Lazy U to select the perfect wine for each meal. The dining program specializes in regional ranch cuisine, such as Rocky mountain trout, rosemary rack of lamb and aged western beef.
