STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO—The Sheraton Steamboat Resort & Villas will undergo an $8.2 million room renovation to be completed in November 2013.
The project will result in 56 new luxury Mountain Suites, which will be ready by the 2013-2014 ski season. The total room count will then rise to 285 with the addition of the studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom Mountain Suites. The suites will feature granite countertops, mini or full kitchens and washers and dryers, as well as five-fixture bathrooms, flat-screen TVs and Sheraton Sweet Sleeper II Beds.
Many of the Mountain Suites are designed as “lock-offs,” which offers guests the option to book lodging similar to a high-end, three-bedroom condo with hotel amenities. The suites also feature a Colorado mountain contemporary style with natural stone gas fireplaces. The kitchens are modern with stainless steel appliances, custom furniture and built-in outlets. Additionally, the suites offer natural wood accent tables, artwork such as log slices and photography collages and built-in storage, as well as soaking tubs and glass-enclosed showers in the bathrooms.
The resort is Steamboat Springs’ only ski-in, ski-out, full-service property. It also offers 28,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor meeting space that carries out the “Seasons of Colorado” theme, including 17 meeting rooms, such as the 7,000-sq.-ft. Grand Ballroom. The property also features the Rollingstone Ranch Golf Course, a championship course designed by Robert Trent Jones II and managed by Troon.

When you hear all the lodging industry projections for the months and years to come, much of the robust growth is forecast to be the result of the expected influx of travelers from China. In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
