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.

Lumière with Inspirato in partnership with Telluride Ski & Golf announced a new collection of small group experiences, the Forum Retreat Packages.

 

It has been an incredible winter to travel around to various Colorado ski resorts as the snow conditions have been nothing short of terrific. Snowmass, Vail, Beaver Creek, Winter Park, Steamboat Springs, Monarch and Keystone have been part of my Winter 2018/2019 ski agenda, in addition to my home mountain Crested Butte Mountain Resort of course. I’ve written about a couple of these excursions lately and want to share some of the happenings and experiences that are group-friendly and a lot of fun in Steamboat Springs.

 

A recent visit to Grand County confirmed that if I lived closer, I would definitely spend more time there. Isn’t that how you want attendees leaving a meeting or event in the destination you chose, saying “That was so fun, I can’t wait to return!”?

What I like about Grand County is the diversity of experiences you can have in an area that isn’t overly busy and has a lot of charm. There is a ton of open space, and the locals are friendly. Pretty much all of my experiences in Grand County are winter-based so that is my focus here, but summer and fall are equally as nice.
