• Wyndham Hotel & Conference Center Slated to Enter New Mexico Market By Summer 2017

    POSTED February 2, 2017

Peak Hospitality has announced the rebranding of Hotel Cascada, which will soon be known as Wyndham Hotel & Conference Center; the 11-acre property will also undergo a $5 million transformation.

“Since the hotel’s construction in 1972, the property has become one of Albuquerque’s most recognized landmarks even as it has gone through several identities and renovations,” says Theodore Barela, CEO, Peak Hospitality. “As New Mexico natives who have seen the transformations this hotel has gone through, we’re excited to see this property shine as the renovations progress to make it one of Albuquerque’s premier hotels and conference centers.”

The head-to-toe redesign will include the property’s 300 rooms, 30,000 square feet of meeting and event space, and an indoor water park with five pools. The lobby, fitness center and exterior will be updated.

There will be three parts to the property’s transformation. The beginning phase will work on banquet and dining areas, while later phases will include updates to the water park and property. The Peak Hospitality plans to pay homage to the property’s history and the families that worked to build the original property through the remodeling.

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.


After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  


Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
