100 Million Reasons to See What’s Happening at The Broadmoor in Colorado

April 8, 2014 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

The Broadmoor announced the details of the second and final phase of renovations in its $100 million, multi-year renovation and expansion project, which begins November, 2013 to be completed May 2014.

Focusing on the extensive renovation and enhancement of the original Broadmoor West building, the second phase of renovations includes the addition of a new Adam D. Tihany designed Italian restaurant, renovated and expanded guest rooms, and a new health-inspired restaurant. Maintaining the Five Star, Five Diamond resort’s standards for impeccable service and unrivaled amenities for which it is known, the new Broadmoor West elevates the overall guest experience, further strengthening The Broadmoor’s position as one of the country’s leading hotels.


Reflecting The Broadmoor’s signature style of marrying luxury with comfort, Broadmoor West renovations include the extensive redesign and expansion of guest rooms with an additional 85 to 200 square feet added per room, living rooms featuring new decorative lighting, chandeliers, furnishings, carpet, and draperies, as well as all-new, five-fixture marble baths added to each bathroom.

A three-story addition to the original West building adds thirty-one guest rooms and suites, bringing The Broadmoor’s total guest room count to 775. Four new suites feature panoramic views of the sprawling property, Cheyenne Lake, and the gorgeous Cheyenne Mountain backdrop.

Expanding The Broadmoor’s unparalleled culinary program, Broadmoor West welcomes a brand new Adam D. Tihany designed Italian restaurant, Ristorante del Lago. Situated on the picturesque western edge of Cheyenne Lake, the new dining destination offers a traditional Mediterranean villa appearance to complement a menu of Italian regional cuisine and a robust Italian dominated wine list. The restaurant features an outdoor patio offering spectacular lake views, a private dining room, an expansive “community” dining table, a wine room, charcuterie and cheese cellars, and an exhibition kitchen with a wood burning oven and Rotissiere.

Bar Del Lago, also an Adam D. Tihany design, will be expanded and updated with a traditional Italian appearance to include custom millwork, additional outdoor seating, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and vintage wine and liquor displays. A lakeside entry will be added to both Risorante del Lago and Bar Del Lago, as well as an internal connection between the two.

Play, The Broadmoor’s unique, retro-inspired restaurant and activity center located on the lobby level of Broadmoor West, remains open during the renovations.

With the re-imagining of Broadmoor West, comes The Broadmoor’s latest café dining option, Natural Epicurean. A philosophy of natural, wholesome, and local cuisine to fuel the body and mind defines the space which will feature a terrace with adjacent produce and herb garden from which ingredients will be harvested. Inside, large windows, wood flooring, and an exhibition kitchen will make this an ideal place to gather for an inspired meal. 

Lobby and Exterior

Staying true to The Broadmoor’s grandeur, the Broadmoor West lobby is updated with an expanded concierge and front desk area, fresh décor, and interior design, giving it a more refined and elegant appearance. Magnificent stained glass skylights, marble floors with custom stone insets, finely detailed millwork on the walls and ceilings, woven rugs, and custom decorative chandeliers are added to harmonize the look of the space with the rest of the property’s interior facade.

The entry drive and porte-cochere of Broadmoor West is transformed with custom cast bronze column caps, cast stone balustrade, a new entry fountain, stone flooring, ornate iron work, and a new decorative drive surface and complementary landscaping.

“With the success of our first phase of renovations at The Broadmoor and many months of planning for our second phase, we are looking forward to this final transformation. Our enhancement to Broadmoor West will complement the surrounding property as well as enhance guest experience,” says Steve Bartolin, President of The Broadmoor.

Over the next year, The Broadmoor will continue to announce further news surrounding The Broadmoor’s Ranch at Emerald Valley, the opening of Ristorante del Lago, and details on the newest addition to The Broadmoor Wilderness Experience, Cloud Camp, opening late summer of 2014.
