The Inn at Riverwalk in Edwards, Colorado is ready to debut its welcoming new space to the Vail Valley community.

​​​​​​​The Inn at Riverwalk, an independently-owned hotel in the Vail Valley, now affiliated with Choice Hotels as a member of the Ascend Collection, has been getting a lot of attention lately—attention to detail. After months of work remodeling, refurbishing, refinishing and refurnishing, it’s time for the big reveal.

Three months and $3 million is what it took to complete the top-to-bottom renovation that included upgrades to nearly every part of the hotel, from the lobby to the guest rooms and outdoor spaces. The hotel temporarily closed for the renovation in September and reopened to guests right before Christmas; now, with the work complete and the holiday season in the books, The Inn at Riverwalk is ready to host a community party to celebrate and show off its chic new look.

"It's been a labor of love," said The Inn at Riverwalk owner Kathy Treat, "We want the community to feel like The Inn at Riverwalk is an extension their own home, a warm and welcoming space for family and friends to gather when visiting the Vail Valley."

​The open house will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 31, with the official ribbon cutting at 5 p.m. Visit with the owners, meet the staff and see what all the commotion these past months has been about. Event guests are invited to take tours of the property and socialize over appetizers prepared by Zino Ristorante. There will also be refreshments of wine, beer and non-alcoholic choices.

“It’s been a labor of love,” said The Inn at Riverwalk owner Kathy Treat, “We want the community to feel like The Inn at Riverwalk is an extension their own home, a warm and welcoming space for family and friends to gather when visiting the Vail Valley.”  

Pets are welcome too—at the open house and as guests! Since it opened 20 years ago, The Inn at Riverwalk has welcomed animal companions. “As pet owners ourselves, we understand that pets are as much a part of the family as any person,” said The Inn at Riverwalk General Manager, Matt Tabor. “Just as a friend with a pet is welcome in my home, pets are always welcome at The Inn at Riverwalk.”

What’s New
​The changes at The Inn at Riverwalk are immediately evident. Upon entering, a new reception desk redefines the guest experience, leading to a cozy and comfortable lobby. A stone fireplace surrounded by modern furnishings is the focal point for the communal gathering space. Warm and inviting, it’s the perfect place to settle in with a book, play games with family and friends or get a little work done. Other new additions include a deluxe coffee bar, a sundry shop, a water bottle-filling station and Gear Garage—where guests can borrow outdoor equipment such as bikes and snowshoes to explore the area.

​The elevators, corridors and guest rooms have all been updated. There are 14 deluxe king and 46 deluxe double queen bedrooms—all designed to be “mountain modern.” ADA compliant rooms provide greater access and comfort for guests, while seven condominiums in one-and two-bedroom configurations with fireplaces and kitchens round out the offerings. Changes include new color schemes, flooring, ceilings, bathrooms and amenities, such as updated 43” flat screen televisions and device charging stations built into the bedside table lighting.

​The fitness room has been relocated to the adjacent 1st & Main building, an airy space with floor-to-ceiling windows that take advantage of the gorgeous north-facing views. Guests can work out on all-new Technogym equipment. Outdoors, pool and hot tub surfaces have been completely refurbished. The al fresco space also includes updated landscaping, a firepit for warming and ambiance, lounge chairs, tables and Adirondack-style seating.

​The Inn at Riverwalk is also proud to be an Actively Green certified hotel, a designation given to businesses that excel at achieving sustainability goals through energy efficiency strategies, recycling programs and environmentally supportive purchasing choices.
