What’s New in Glenwood Springs?

Hotel Maxwell Anderson, Glenwood Hot Springs Resort, and Bair Ranch all have exciting news for planners

By Beth Buehler

Glenwood Springs is the gateway to Colorado’s Roaring Fork Valley, which also includes the communities of Carbondale, Basalt, Snowmass Village, and Aspen. Groups now have even more reasons to choose this resort town as a meetings and events destination with all sorts of new happenings.

Hotel Denver, a hotel that has welcomed guests since 1915, has undergone a name change to Hotel Maxwell Anderson and is wrapping up a renovation that includes the guest rooms, lobby, and expanded access to Glenwood Canyon Brewpub. Twenty additional guest rooms have replaced the property’s meeting and event space, but the hotel frequently partners with Morgridge Commons Glenwood Springs Conference Center, which is within easy walking distance and has several meeting space options.

Another longtime property, Glenwood Hot Springs Resort—opened in 1888 on the site of the Yampah Spring—is adding five geothermal hot spring pools on the east end of its current large pool area. The expanded area is slated to open early this summer. The resort has a 107-room lodge with two conference rooms available for groups.

Bair Ranch has introduced cowboy cookouts this year, an outdoor dining experience set against the backdrop of Glenwood Canyon that also includes live music, lasso roping, line dancing, and horseshoes. Horseback rides, ATV tours, and clay shooting can be booked for predinner entertainment.
