Where to stay in Glenwood Springs

Most of the places to stay in Glenwood Springs sit within walking distance of the Colorado River. The hot springs pool lies on the north bank of the river, as do many of the town's hotels. Most of the town, however, is on the south bank of the river, so choose a place here for better access to local services and entertainment. Accommodations in town range from bed and breakfasts to historical hotels to resorts. You'll also find numerous national chain hotels and vacation rentals in condominiums and private homes. If you're looking to ski at Aspen and stay in Glenwood Springs as a less-expensive lodging alternative, inquire at local hotels about accommodation-and-lift-ticket packages.
