Glenwood Springs tramway hotel in the works

A group of entrepreneurs have started laying utilities and grading at the base of the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park tramway for what will become Glenwood Springs’ newest hotel. The group, lead by accountant Steve Carver, is seeking amendments to its building permit that will allow items such as allowing workers to park on city property, stipulations for the building to be granted a certificate of occupancy and timelines for construction. Glenwood Springs city council will consider the amendments tonight. The hotel, an American Suites franchise, would have 72 rooms, four stories and share a parking lot with the Caverns’ tramway, said city planner Andrew McGregor. The plans also call for a 4,000-square-foot restaurant, but the developers have not released a tenant name yet, he said. The planning and zoning committee says the development fits in with the city’s development plans for the area.
