Except for just a couple days each year, our world-famous hot springs pool delivers oooohs and ahhhhs daily! One of the first tourist attractions in Colorado is stronger today than ever. The Glenwood Hot Springs Pool began operation in 1888 as a commercial operation. But we suspect the Indians had been coming for, perhaps, hundreds of years prior. Millions of gallons later, the hot springs pool is still a major draw to the state and certainly our little town.
We package up pool passes with our rooms for your convenience and savings. Choose from two Hot Springs Pool Packages; Room with a Brew includes two adult passes to the pool and $20 gift card to spend at our award winning Brew Pub. Or, leave out the Brew Pub with out Hot Springs Pool Package which only includes the pool passes with your choice of accommodations.
Our hotel is directly across the street from the pedestrian bridge that crosses over the Colorado River and I-70. The bridge leads you right to the pool. We’ll even give you a towel if you need one! In the Summer expect a “lively” experience with kids and families enjoying this massive pool full of hot water. But the other 9 months of the year is much quieter. You may even find times where you nearly have the pool to yourself. Our favorite time to soak and swim is in the evening, preferably on a night when the snow is falling softly. But it doesn’t really matter when you come. It’s always fun. There’s even a major water slide in the summer months and there are actually two pools; one less hot and the other more hot – a true therapy pool. Adjacent to the pool are the original vapor caves which are quite an experience themselves. On the pool property itself, is a very nice spa facility where you can find a variety of pampering treatments.
The biggest decision you will have to make when choosing one of our hot springs pool packages is what type of room are you going to reserve. If you are planning a special romantic getaway, may we suggest one of our spectacular suites? Don’t worry though, all of our rooms and suites are special and one-of-a-kind.
