What started out as a grand concept for the "Grand Dame of the Rockies" last November is quickly becoming a reality as the first phase of The Broadmoor's $72 million renovation comes to a close. The final phase begins this fall, and is expected to run through May 2002.
The new main pool at the north end of Cheyenne Lake is impressive in both size and scope: At 11,000 square feet, the Pool holds more than 320,000 gallons of water. "It's just Like you were walking into the Lake," says project director Terry McHale. The innovative design gives the impression that the pool is part of the lake itself. Called Infinity Edge, this style is quite popular in Mexican and Caribbean resorts.
Located on the west bank of the new pool area is a delightful, dual-tube waterslide for adults and kids alike. "Two Falls" features its own splash-down pond and swimming access back to the main pool. Other features of the complex include two large whirlpools on the lake's edge, with spectacular views of Cheyenne Mountain. The children's pool on the east bank is large and inviting, with bubble-jet fountains perfect for water play.
Luxury poolside cabanas have generous lounge chairs, ceiling fans, copper roofs, patios, and privacy curtains. The nearby Pool Cafe provides a large outside bar and dining patio overlooking the lake. And, of course, walkers and joggers can still enjoy the lakeside path for morning constitutionals or romantic evening strolls.
Lakeside Suites, which opened last month, is located just north of The Broadmoor's main building. This four-story structure designed in the same classic Broadmoor style, houses a total of 21 spectacular and spacious suites--six on the lake level; seven each on the second and third floors; and a fourth level, 1,800-square-foot penthouse suite. All rooms face west with unobstructed views of the lake and the mountains, and each suite features individual fireplaces, spacious bathrooms with separate shower and tub facilities, and either individual patios or balconies. The entry to Lakeside Suites is a spacious salon that incorporates a fireplace and comfortable places for reading or writing with The Broadmoor's signature views. Reservations for Lakeside Suites are available by calling The Broadmoor Reservations Department toll-free at 800-634-7711.
Come be a part of a new chapter as we rewrite history once again in The Broadmoor's continuing legacy of excellence.
