The St. James Suite Life

Published by under Hotel Denver

Our St James Suite is the epitome of unique privacy. Just a few steps from the front door of the Hotel Denver on a quiet side street in Glenwood Springs is this cute little pre-war house. It became part of the holdings of the hotel some years back and we converted the downstairs to a sweet suite! The upstairs is unoccupied. So, you have the place to yourself. It’s great for an extended stay or for those who just like something special and private.

Our Brewery Brings Home the Gold!

What you might not know, is this little micro brewery in the mountains consistently beats other brewers on an annual basis!

This year they won a gold medal for one of our favorites; “Storm King Dunkel Lager”, in the European Style Dunkel category. This same recipe won a silver medal back in 2006, so this is not some flash in the copper kettle!

Fall Foliage Viewing Time

Published by under Glenwood Springs Travel

It’s not easy to predict when the height of fall foliage will occur each year around Glenwood Springs. But given the amount of precipitation we have had, this year could be spectacular for Colorado leaves changing! All it takes is a couple of good cold nights and the magic begins to happen.

At the higher altitudes this means the display can begin soon after Labor Day. The valleys will take a little longer to get into gear. But most years, the action is fully underway towards the end of the month of September.
