BROOMFIELD, CO—The Lodge at Vail, A RockResort, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, will undergo significant renovations this fall to debut for the 2014-2015 winter season.

The property will remain open for business during the renovations, starting in August and completing in December, with all hotel amenities accessible to guests including spa, restaurants and other public areas. 

The Lodge at Vail’s International Wing of hotel rooms underwent renovations in 2008, and now the alpine-inspired hotel’s remaining 56 hotel rooms will be completely renovated.  The scope of this renovation includes interior finishes, furnishings, soft goods, lighting and the installation of air conditioning.

Additionally, the hotel’s corridors, main stairways and lobby will receive upgrades as well. The lobby’s refresh will include new furnishings, textiles, paint, artwork and lighting designed to maintain the authentic character and cozy ambiance for which the boutique hotel is known, according to the company.

Last summer, the hotel’s pool area was renovated including two large, side-by-side, in-ground hot tubs with a gas fireplace; furnishings; stonework and landscaping; two additional gas fire pits; a sound system with the ability to cater music to guests’ needs; heating for year-round access; and a full-service bar and commercial kitchen.

This past winter one of the two on-site restaurants, Cucina at The Lodge at Vail, also received a facelift to its bar area. Cucina is famous for its hearty breakfast buffet and après ski by its outdoor fire pit.

“Adding to our revitalizations of the pool area and the Cucina bar this year, as well as the International Wing guestrooms and ballroom and new RockResorts Spa and fitness center in 2008, the next phase of renovations will complete The Lodge at Vail’s makeover, enhancing the overall guest experience,” stated Stephan Nicolas, GM of The Lodge at Vail.
