Lobby improvements and eatery news at mountain resort hotel.
It seems that the Viceroy Snowmass opened just recently, but in reality, it debuted at Thanksgiving 2009. In the world of luxury lodging, it was time to refresh, and that’s what’s happening this fall. When it closes this month, work will begin on a $3.5 million-plus remodel of several public spaces at the property. It seems that there’s a new project owner willing and able to keep the property in tune with today’s luxury hospitality trends. These include the following enhancements:
- Refresh of the lobby to make a more welcoming and cozier
- A new coffee shop, Café V. Is that a 5 or a vee/, I wonder.
- Toro, a remodeled and reconcepted restaurant by acclaimed restaurateur Richard Sandoval
- A new fitness center with extensive natural light and all-new state-of-the-art equipment.
These improvements are to be completed ahead of the winter-season reopening of the hotel on December 15. Next spring is to bring additional enhancements to the pool area, including two new oversized hot tubs and the reopening of Nest as a vibrant new poolside/slopeside bar and “outdoor dining experience.”
The Viceroy is at 130 Wood Road, Snowmass Village, Colorado 81615; guestroom & reservations, 877-235-7577.
