The Broadmoor Completes Three-Part Renovation

Johnson David Interiors has completed three distinct interior design projects at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo. The $60 million renovation of the property’s Broadmoor West Building, which reopened in late May 2014, was framed by the owner’s desire to imbue the building with rich finishes and Old World craftsmanship found in the original Broadmoor building, constructed in 1918, and throughout many luxury hotels at the time. In addition to a complete redesign of the building’s public spaces, the renovation included a three-floor addition and 31 new guestrooms, four Penthouse Suites, each complete with a personal terrace, and three Hospitality Suites. The renovation also enlarged all the Broadmoor West guestrooms by 100 square feet to accommodate five-piece luxury marble baths.
