Recipient of the World’s Leading Luxury Train title from the 2020 World Travel Awards, Rocky Mountaineer launched its first-ever excursion in America’s Southwest on Aug. 15, 2021. Rockies to the Red Rocks is a two-day route that winds alongside rivers and through canyons and mountains between the vibrant city of Denver, Colorado and the red rock formations of Moab, Utah. From either direction, the overnight stay is in historic Glenwood Springs, Colorado, known for hot springs (Glenwood Hot Springs Pool and Iron Mountain Hot Springs), outdoor fun, festivals and a vibrant downtown district. 

Due to strong interest from travelers, Rocky Mountaineer extended the inaugural Rockies to the Red Rocks season by four weeks, adding rail cars and additional departure dates to increase availability. There are now 56 departure options from Aug. 15 – Nov. 19, 2021, with the choice of beginning from Denver or Moab. 

Rocky Mountaineer operates multi-day, daytime train journeys that feature incredible scenery, regional cuisine, and attentive service in spacious, glass-domed train coaches. This new excursion is in addition to the three rail routes that the company runs in western Canada. All of Rocky Mountaineer’s routes are ideal for corporate retreats and incentives, providing an easy way to enjoy the scenice U.S. Mountain West and western Canada. 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.
