Members of the Steamboat Springs City Council have given their approval to the construction of a 110-room hotel, to go up on some 2.7 acres on the south side of the city.
The Steamboat Springs-based SBS Hotel Venture LLC wants to build the 4-story building at 1480 Pine Grove Road in an area zoned as community commerce.
The L-shaped building, to go up near the adjacent Fish Creek, will include an outdoor pool, fitness room, dining area, meeting space, and restaurant.
Plans call for the new hotel, which was recommended for approval last month by the Steamboat Springs Planning Commission, to be branded as a Residence Inn by Marriott.
Because the partly wooded site for the hotel contains several structures regarded as historically interesting, the developers have promised to incorporate some of the wood and stone features of those buildings into the new hotel.
According to city documents, the overall look of the hotel will be in the Modern Mountain Design tradition.
Construction work on the hotel could launch later this spring with a mid-summer 2020 completion date.
Residence Inns typically feature one and two-bedrooms suites. The brand, launched in 1975, is regarded as the first extended stay chain in the U.S.
