Looking Good: Rooms with a View in Glenwood Springs

Glenwood Springs’ lodging community welcomes guests to get comfortable, stay a while, and enjoy views all around town!

With over 1,500 guest rooms from which to choose, visitors to Glenwood Springs have nearly endless choices of where to stay. A spectrum of accommodations provides the perfect launch pad for all the things to do in Glenwood Springs. The possibilities run the gamut from historic hotels to affordable family-owned lodges and snug bed and breakfasts to well-appointed flagship hotels. There are even nearby condos, camping and cabin options.

When it comes to selecting lodging with amazing views, the outlook in Glenwood Springs couldn’t be better. Like the accommodations themselves, everyone has their personal preferences for what constitutes a noteworthy view—an urban landscape, picture-perfect mountain and river scenery, a quiet neighborhood nook, a historic perspective, garden and courtyard vistas, a hot spring overlook—fortunately for guests, many of Glenwood’s lodges fall into multiple categories!

A Window on the (Glenwood) World

If you like to be at the epicenter of all the goings-on, choose lodging in downtown Glenwood Springs. The views here focus on both historic and modern architecture. Major hot springs attractions are also within sight. Dining and shopping are just steps away.
