Historic Hotels of America Adds Two U.S. Mountain West Properties

Twenty additional historic hotels have been nominated and accepted into the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Historic Hotels of America program, which includes properties ranging in age from 52 to 246 years old. Two that fall within Mountain Meetings’ coverage area include the Fairmont Olympic in Seattle, Washington and Alpenhof Lodge in Teton Village, Wyoming. In 1924 when the Seattle hotel opened, The Seattle Times held a contest offering $50 for the best name, resulting in 3,906 entries submitted and 11 entries combined into one name: The Olympic. Alpenhof Lodge was the first lodge built in Teton Village and has preserved its Bavarian heritage style. Historic Hotels of America has more than 300 historic hotels in 46 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. 

EXPANSION PROJECT WRAPS UP AT STEIN ERIKSEN LODGE

 

Living in a Colorado ski town like I do, locals always seem to know about other great ski communities. Word seems to travel, and residents traverse back and forth for outdoor recreation or a new job in a location that provides a similar lifestyle.

 

The 254-room Lodge at Suncadia Resort, A Destination Hotel, located on 6,400 acres in Cle Elum, turns 10 this year. The resort features more than 20,000 square feet of conference space that was recently refreshed with new paint, carpet and furnishings. Grand and junior ballrooms, multiple banquet spaces, a boardroom and breakout rooms are among the renovated spaces.
