The 744-room Broadmoor resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is starting the second phase of a two-year, US$60 million renovation, focusing on redesigned guestrooms and suites as well as updated food and beverage outlets and event facilities.

By April 2013, The Broadmoor will update its Tavern Garden Room, the Golden Bee, and add an activity center. The Tavern’s Garden Room will be redecorated to give the feel of a European conservatory; the restaurant will remain open. The Golden Bee restaurant will nearly double in size, with a new façade and covered rooftop reminiscent of a 19th century London pub.

The new activity center in Broadmoor West will feature bowling lanes, billiards, board games, and food and beverage designed to appeal to a variety of ages.

By April 2014, The Broadmoor will debut a redesigned and expanded West Lobby Bar with an outdoor terrace and a living room, as well as a new Italian restaurant. During the same timeframe, Broadmoor West will unveil expanded rooms, baths and lobbies and a redesigned exterior similar to the main building’s. All of the guestrooms will have five fixture marble baths; some will have balconies and Juliet balconies.

The first phase of the renovations, completed last month, included re-opening the Southlake building guestrooms and suites. The building has a new exterior and landscaping, entry vestibules, 16 new patios and 21 newly updated guestrooms including eight suites.

The 6,300 sq ft (585 sq m) Cheyenne Lodge event and meeting space also has a new look. The exterior features timbers and split logs like a true Colorado lodge.

The Pauline Chapel, designed by Julie Penrose in 1918, has been restored and offers non-denominational services every Sunday; it is also available for weddings.
