The highlight of the season will be the annual Pageant of Lights from 7-9 p.m. Nov. 23. More than 200,000 lights are on the building and common areas, and themed decorations honor the birth of Jesus, children, the message of The Polar Express Story, and Colorado winter.

The ceremony will also feature seasonal music, with national recording artist and sax player Brian Savage; local duet Michelle and Kelli, the Gabossi Sisters; and vocalist Jon Chandler.
The hotel’s chef has developed a fall menu taking full advantage of fall harvest produce. On Thanksgiving Day, holidaymakers can partake of a menu featuring ham, turkey, or beef with a cornucopia of accompanying appetizers and side dishes.
