Press Release

December 9, 2013

Park City — Gemstone Hotels & Resorts, a hotel management company that specializes in owning and operating luxury urban hotels and resorts, has been selected as the management company for the Garden of the Gods Club and Resort in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The country club and resort recently were acquired by an LLC led by local business owners and long time club members Judy Mackey and Brenda Smith. With the acquisition, the new owners announced that the resort will undergo a multi-million dollar upgrade, which will feature transforming the existing spa into a combined wellness center and full-service spa.

The $6 million phase one renovation includes upgrades to the 84 guest rooms and suites, improvements to the food and beverage operations and the enhancement of the meeting and catering facilities—including the addition of a new outdoor wedding garden and cliffside ceremony site.

“Garden of the Gods Club has a long history of catering to an exclusive clientele and discerning members, offering the very best in recreational facilities, dining and lodging," said Thomas Prins, principal of Gemstone.
