The Antlers Hotel, in Colorado Springs, CO has reopened under the Wyndham Hotels and Resorts flagship brand.
The Antlers, A Wyndham Hotel, is owned by hoteliers John Goede and Perry R. Sanders, Jr. and is in the final phase of a full renovation transforming the hotel’s 273 guest rooms and suites, lobby, restaurants, and more than 27,000 square feet of extensive meeting and event space.
Situated in the heart of Colorado Springs, the upscale hotel offers spectacular views of Pike’s Peak and the Rocky Mountains and is a short walk from local shops, restaurants and museums. Its opening increases Wyndham Hotel Group’s presence in the Colorado Springs area to 15 hotels, including The Mining Exchange, A Wyndham Grand Hotel, also owned by Goede and Sanders.
Wyndham Hotels and Resorts make travel extraordinary with personal, thoughtful touches, connecting with guests by delivering comfort that exceeds expectations with the tailored services and amenities expected at a first-class hotel.
“With more than five million visitors annually, Colorado Springs is an increasingly popular destination for U.S. travelers, making it a perfect addition to Wyndham’s growing portfolio of city-center and vacation destinations,” said Chip Ohlsson, Wyndham Hotel Group’s chief development officer for North America. “We’re focused on bringing this brand to new markets by partnering with established owners like John, Perry and their management team. Their leadership, combined with the strength of the Wyndham name, will undoubtedly deliver extraordinary travel experiences to guests who stay with us at The Antlers, A Wyndham Hotel.”
Celebrating the area’s distinct landscape and local culture, the second phase of the hotel’s transformative renovation includes a new rooftop pool and bar with direct views of Pike’s Peak; a lobby bar with 100 beers showcasing local Colorado micro brews and 100 Colorado craft spirits; and dinner service at the new Antlers Grill, home to local Colorado fare. Additional offerings will include a rooftop garden and apiary, a new Italian restaurant, a 24-hour fitness center and an indoor pool and hot tub.
The Antlers, A Wyndham Hotel, is the latest hotel to join the global Wyndham brand, which consists of nearly 100 locations in major urban and resort destinations around the world. Earlier this year, Wyndham Hotel Group announced the signing of the first Wyndham hotel in Africa, Wyndham Addis Ababa Bole Road in Ethiopia, as well as the brand’s first Vietnam location, slated to be the tallest building in Danang.
The Antlers first opened in 1883 by the founder of Colorado Springs, General William Jackson Palmer, and housed the General’s large and envied collection of hunting trophies. Then known as “Little London” because of the multitude of English tourists to the hotel, it featured modern conveniences of the time including a hydraulic elevator, central steam heat and gas lights. The hotel was rebuilt in 1901 following a fire and again in 1967, still standing today in its original location.
