The Mining Exchange A Wyndham Grand Hotel & Spa
Ranked #5 of 105 Hotels in Colorado Springs
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Stayed there last Friday & Saturday and it was a dream. It's a five star hotel for a three star price.
It just opened so all the rooms are brand-new. Two widescreen HD TVs in every room and an air-conditioner that ROCKS. (love that) Granite bathrooms, granite bedside tables, three granite tables in the sitting area, granite coffee station, eight-foot granite desk, etc. Beautiful tile shower with room for two with twin sprinklers.One wall was 100-year old brick (wife loved that).
At their bar, shots of ultra-luxury Chinaco Anerjo tequila just $9.99. Their Springs Orleans Restaurant has a five star chef and it's Cajun Food Heaven. Can't say enough good things about The Mining Exchange Hotel in Colorado Springs.

Room Tip: All rooms are brand new - you smell wood and leather - very nice,

This is a relatively new hotel located in an early twentieth century building yet redone to the highest caliber. The rooms are ample, comfortable, in soothing shades of taupe and beige; excellent bathrooms, and extremely quiet. The location is very good, a two minute walk to the old downtown area round the hotel, now filling up with good restaurants and open air cafes...a welcome change to an otherwise sterile city. The restaurant Springs Orleans was excellent for breakfast yet did not have a chance to check the other meals: in any event it bodes well. Service while still new, works fine. This is the place to go to if you want a hotel of character of the highest standard; previously the Broadmoor was the choice, yet the latter is a bit out of the way and in my opinion too large.

Room Tip: Room 506, a corner room has a good bath and room distribution.

WOW! We could not say enough about the kindness and generosity of the staff, the accomadations, the entire experience at the Wyndham Grand Hotel, especially in light of the evacuation at Glen Eyrie Conference Center (due to fires) and quickly arranged change of plans for the Free Methodist Chaplains Association.

We normally stay at the Cliff House in Manitou Springs but they were full occupancy so we decided to stay at the Mining Exchange. Even though they had a broken water pipe disaster that flooded the lobby, I must say they handeled everything very professionally and treated us to a royal stay in spite of it. We enjoyed wandering through downtown Colorado Springs because it was all within easy walking distance from the hotel.

Just to roam the halls and look at the original architecture was inspiring. But the furnishings in the lobby were exquisite. Everyone should stop by and look at the Italian Marble wall located by the lobby vault. You may think it is a mural at first, but get closer and you will be surprised. And don't forget to look at the magnificently restored grand piano from 1886.

One word describes our room, quiet. It was probably the quietest we have ever experienced in a hotel. It had a twelve foot ceiling with a fan above the king bed, which was extremely comfortable. When the drapes are completely drawn, you can sleep till noon and not even know that the sun had come up. It also had a very large desk with marble top and six drawers accompanied by a relaxing sofa with plenty of room to move around.

Nice experience and one worth repeating. It is nice to find another hotel as posh as the Cliff House.

I don't normally write reviews of places that I stay at during business travel but I'm making an exception for this awesome hotel. Of course, everything is new which is nice on its own but the rooms are just so well done that I had to comment. High ceilings, ceiling fan, HD widescreen TV, nice bed, good coffee maker and the best hotel bathroom I've ever seen. My only complaint is that my room didn't have a lot of natural lighting so it could have used a little more lighting in the main part of the room (maybe a light with the ceiling fan).

As far as the staff, you can tell they are all excited to be there. I had some free time and the consierge, John, helped me decide what to do (Pike's Peak cog railway) and even had someone give me a ride to and from the hotel in their courtesy car. This was well above and beyond and I really appreciated the service. I know they probably aren't able to do that kind of stuff often, but what a nice gesture. The drivers, Ryan and Alex, were very friendly and helpful.

I hope to get a chance to go back and whether it's for business or pleasure, this is a great place in a great location.

Due to wildfires, we were evacuated to The Mining Exchange Wyndham Grand Hotel in central city Colorado Springs from The Navigators facility, Glen Eyrie (next to the Garden of the Gods) where scores of our international chaplains gathered for our annual meeting and professional development conference, We experienced gracious, professional service and qualty foods and care unlike any we have encountered previously in our extensive travels...from Alaska to Florida, Maine to California and everywhere in between in North America!

We were among the first evacuees from the Waldo Canyon fire. A friend suggested the Mining Exchange, a new hotel downtown. She said the hotel not even fully open yet, with somewhere in the vicinity of 50% of the rooms complete, but she and her husband had recently eaten in the hotel restaurant and were very impressed by the lobby. I went online and grabbed a room while my husband finished packing up the car. 30 minutes later we were in a lovely, brand-new room at the hotel. The layout is well-thought-out. The finishes are high-end (nice woodwork, granite in the bathroom and a long granite desk along one wall of the room, for example). The walk-in shower layout is unique in my experience - long and rectangular, with separate "his and hers" shower heads on each end. The bedding is excellent. Nice bathroom toiletries. There are single-cup coffee makers with Emeril coffee pods. The only thing I would have liked is a mini-fridge -- there was an empty cabinet the right size, with an outlet, below the coffee area, so perhaps they plan to put some in later.



After the first night we realized we might be there awhile, so we asked if we could be moved up to a suite (and we'd be glad to pay extra). We were moved to what I'd describe as a mini-suite or a junior suite, which was one large room. The layout and amenities were almost the same as a standard room, but more spacious, allowing for a comfortable sofa in the room and a big tub in the bathroom.



Shortly after we were moved to the suite, the hotel put out an offer of $99 rooms for evacuees. The owners worked around the clock to get as many unfinished rooms as possible online in order to accommodate as many evacuees as they could. Soon the lobby was full of shell-shocked residents, their kids and their little dogs (the hotel allows dogs under 50 lbs). The staff were incredibly kind to all of us. Every interaction with the staff -- and with the owner's wife, who we met in the elevator one day -- was extremely positive.



The hotel's location is great, within easy walking distance of good restaurants and bars. We ate breakfast and dinner in the Springs Orleans restaurant, attached to the hotel, several times. My husband's family is from New Orleans and we are foodies who have often been disappointed with Colorado Springs restaurants, so we had low expectations. The food turned out to be delicious and the ambiance was wonderful. It wasn't always 100% "authentic" New Orleans cuisine, but we loved it. And again, the staff were so kind.



When we checked out, we were charged only $99 a night, even though we booked at a much higher rate AND got an upgrade to a suite. I pointed this out to the front desk and they said "you're evacuees and we're giving you the evacuee rate. We hope your house is okay!"



While being an evacuee was no fun, we are glad we had the opportunity to stay at the Mining Exchange. It was a great discovery for us and will be our go-to hotel when we need a weekend getaway or a place to recommend for friends. And we plan to become regulars at Springs Orleans.
