It is time to stop what you are doing and plan a Gaylord Rockies weekend getaway with Marriott!
I am totally a fan of spending quality time with people I love in places that are amazing and let me tell you, Gaylord Rockies totally is one of these places. I am confident that could write a book about my last weekend getaway to Gaylord Rockies but instead I am going to share my top three reasons that I am going back in a few weeks to do it again with my boys.
Gaylord Rockies has amazing spaces all around the hotel.
From the lobby and open areas that share an amazing view of the Rocky Mountains to the nooks and corners for relaxing, studying, reading or working; every detail is fabulous. The “feel” of the resort is so Colorado which makes my heart so happy. The indoor waterfalls and bridges create an atmosphere that feels so outdoorsy while maintaining the safe feeling of being indoors. During my girlfriend weekend with Alexandra from The Hedgehog Hollow, we explored and found some of the best places for photos, for masterminding sessions and for hanging out to relax.
I even spent some time doing what I LOVE most, art.
There are AWESOME restaurants at Gaylord Rockies.
We ate at four of them and each meal was a yummy (and fun) experience. The sports bar restaurant (Mountain Pass) has the BIGGEST TV wall I have ever seen. The wings were out of this world delicious. Yes, I am getting them again when I go back. The blue cheese dressing is homemade and the perfect compliment to the wings. I might have had a wedge salad the next day JUST to get the dressing again.
On our first night at The Gaylord Rockies, we had dinner at the Italian restaurant, Vista Montague. We enjoyed a couple of glasses of crisp white wine while taking in the view of the atrium.
Saturday morning was a quick trip to The Marketplace for a bite before heading to the spa. The Marketplace offers a HUGE variety of choices, including this amazing gluten-free muffin.
After the spa, we went back to Mountain Pass because, well because blue cheese really. But gosh, the watermelon cocktail was just as delightful.
Dinner at Monte Vista was a wonderful experience. As if the cocktails weren’t fancy enough, the sushi was like a work of art. We tried flights of sake which was a new experience for me.
Relache Spa and Salon is like a journey all of it’s own.
Upon entering Relache Spa, every sense is awakened. The word Relache is French for “take a break” and couldn’t be more fitting. From the moment of entering the locker room to change into plush robes and slippers until checking out in the spa gift store, it was like being on a magical getaway. This is the PERFECT place to spend a day with a friend retreating to replenish the soul.
Some other great things that I think you should know about Gaylord Rockies….
Their staff is AMAZING.
The elevators are perfect for mirror selfies.
The outdoor grounds are simply lovely! To add to the already beautiful backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, they have a S.Mores bar from 3-5 each day!
Truthfully, there is so much more. There is an amazing indoor pool as well as an outdoor pool. There is an arcade. The shopping is amazing. The conference center is state of the art. There are MORE restaurants. I guess that’s why I am going back to experience more of the great things to do at Gaylord Rockies!
Cheers to Travel, Friendship and Gaylord Rockies,
