The Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Aurora will reopen its water features to the general public on June 25 and is offering summer room rates to local residents and leisure travelers to drum up business.
“We are thrilled to be opening our doors just in time for the summer travel season,” said general manager Rick Medwedeff, in a statement issued on Monday. “Guests who are anxious to celebrate summer can float the day away along the lazy river and swim in our indoor and outdoor pools at Arapahoe Springs, relax in a poolside cabana, and simply enjoy a much-needed fun summer getaway – all with amazing views of the Rocky Mountains.”
The state’s largest hotel, with 1,501 rooms, suspended operations on March 25 after its meeting and convention business evaporated because of the COVID-19 outbreak. As it gradually returns, it is courting local guests to fill the void with the slogan “safe summer fun is closer than you think.”
Marriott, the manager of the property, will introduce enhanced safety protocols as part of the reopening, including new cleaning technologies, hospital-grade disinfectants, frequent sanitizing of public spaces and social distancing practices. Ryman Hospitality Properties, owner of the property and other Gaylord hotels, said it had selected Vanderbilt University Medical Center as its official wellness advisor to ensure guest safety.
The hotel’s booking engine shows room rates in the range of $152 to $197 a night around the June 25 opening date.
