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).

The 124-room, pet-friendly hotel and Red Rocks Suite will showcase a rotating selection of memorabilia from partner Red Rocks Amphitheatre’s collection. Each guestroom features complimentary Wi-Fi, a 49-inch television, Keurig coffee makers and a mini fridge. Origin Red Rocks also provides guests with shuttle access to and from Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

The hotel features a mix of classic rooms and loft-style suites with expanded square footage and bunkrooms, ideal for groups or families traveling together. Origin Red Rocks also features more than 5,000-square-feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space alongside state-of-the-art A/V services. Catering for all spaces is provided by Nomad Taqueria + Beer Garden.

Meeting spaces include:

  • Creation Rock Room: At 4,150 square feet, the Creation Rock Room is a large event space that can accommodate up to 300 and can be divided into two smaller meeting areas.
  • 6380’ Boardroom: The 669-square-foot boardroom seats 14 and includes large windows to showcase the mountainous views from Red Rocks Origin. The space is ideal for business meetings and breakout sessions.
  • Mosco Dining Room: This private dining room is located within Nomad Taqueria + Beer Garden. The space seats 14 people and features a 70-inch LED display.

Additionally, Origin Red Rocks itself features complimentary parking, Wi-Fi, water bottle refill station, a 1,000-square-foot gym featuring Rogue and GymRax equipment, and a host of amenities for guest’s furry companions in room.

Additional Origin hotels will open throughout the U.S. in 2018 and 2019 in Lexington, Kentucky, Raleigh, North Carolina and Westminster, Colorado.

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.

 

Luxury guest ranch C Lazy U Ranch recently won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for the third year in a row and simultaneously announced the appointment of Certified Level II Sommelier Elise Blann. 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.

 

Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center recently announced the addition of Director of Food & Beverage Saddiq Mir and Executive Chef Fabian Ludwig to its culinary team. The resort destination is set to open in late 2018 and will feature a wide variety of F&B options, including a steakhouse, a sports grill, a sushi bar, a cocktail lounge and multiple coffee and quick bite spots.
