COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) – You may notice more construction in downtown Colorado Springs. Downtown will double the number of hotel rooms in just four years.
Currently, two hotels are under construction downtown: Hyatt Place Hotel in Kiowa and Nevada, and Marriott in South Tejon and Costilla. Kinship Landing and Hilton Garden Inn were also recently completed.
“I like to see that we offer if you want different types of hospitality products. Kinship Landing is super unique and its own thing. Families and others can enjoy the Hyatt Place and the Hilton Garden Inn. Marriott will be very popular with a business traveler, ”said Susan Edmondson of Downtown Partnership of Colorado Springs.
It comes after downtown Colorado Springs ran out of hotels for several years.
“We had The Antlers, which is great, and then the Mining Exchange came along, which is a great property as well. But, for a mid-sized city, we didn’t have a lot of downtown hotel deals, ”said Edmondson.
Downtown Colorado Springs is expecting a busy and successful summer, now that more and more people are traveling and Southwest Airlines has come to town. However, many tourists would drive to Colorado Springs with their families.
“We feel really optimistic… we want to be ready for all of these visitors,” said Edmondson.
