Lion Square Lodge at the Gondola in Vail, Colo., has completed a $1.25 million renovation of its meeting space. The project, which brings technical upgrades and rustic design elements to the property's five meeting rooms and 5,700 square feet of function space, is the latest in a series of enhancements the property, managed by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, has undergone recently.

"Over the past few years, Lion Square Lodge has undergone a number of significant renovations to offer guests a fresh mountain experience," said Bill Anderson, vice president of operations, Wyndham Vacation Rentals, West region, in a statement. "From a major exterior overhaul to a new restaurant and upgraded units, modern luxury is behind every corner. We're extremely excited to start this latest project and breathe new life into the property's impressive meeting space." 

The meeting space upgrade, begun in May, incorporates interior design by Woodland Lane Design, including new decorative ceilings and LED lighting, a sound mitigation system, enhanced A/V systems as well as new carpeting throughout the lobby, foyer and meeting rooms in the conference area. New furniture, fresh paint and new artwork round out the upgrade efforts. 

Its spaces range from boardrooms to multi-purpose conference rooms, which can accommodate between 10 and 200 attendees. The enhancement comes after a $250,000 investment in the property's Gore Creek Lawn, in which a wedding terrace was added for hosting outdoor ceremonies. A new walkway and staircase allowing for easy access to the event lawn were also completed.

"The project designs are inspired by Vail's natural beauty and the elegant comfort that Lion Square Lodge provides its guests," added Anderson. "Leather, wood and stone elements bring the mountains inside, along with photography and paintings of the area's greatest scenes. It's this destination meeting experience that leaves an impression, whether you're in the middle of a meeting or taking a break outside on one of the nearby trails."
