Glenwood Springs, CO
Offering the world’s largest hot springs pool, this majestic Rocky Mountain resort offers families the perfect getaway for a mountain adventure with all of the rest and relaxation your family needs. The resort features 107 spacious guest rooms including family and two-bedroom suites. Ideal for families, these suites offer two separate bedrooms, a mini fridge, microwave and flat screen TVs.
With the 18-hole mini golf course, several pools and nearby Rocky Mountains families will have plenty to enjoy. Be sure to soothe your muscles after a long day of activities in the hot springs pool — kept at a comfortable 90 degrees F. Kids can splash around in the two city blocks-sized “big pool,” ride the resort’s two thrilling water slides or take the young ones to the separate kiddie pool with a fountain for hours of fun. For more rest and relaxation mom and dad will love the private cabana rentals with lounge chairs and coolers, and the one-of-a-kind therapeutic mineral treatments at the Spa of the Rockies.

First time here, very clean and spacious room (2 queens). It is a little pricey BUT you get made-to-order delicious breakfast included (that's saves about 60 bucks a day for 3) and you get hot springs pool included (which saves 90 bucks a day for 3). It's a no-brainer. They have some covered parking behind the lobby area and plenty of surface parking behind that. Very easy in and out and it is a 5 minute walk across foot bridge to town/restaurants. Pool is right across the street. Nice staff, clean rooms.
Love this place for the member benefits at the athletic club, however I’m on a 2 year waitlist to get my permanent locker, so I haul my gym bag and pool items ever single time.
The hot springs pool at Iron Mountain may have less children and therefore be a better fit for adults who want more peace and quiet and are just “soakers.”
I’m happy to see Glenwood Hots Springs is adding on a children’s area and epic water slide. Opening July 4th.
