The property is located across the street from the Glenwood Canyon Adventure Park and its Iron Mountain tram. It's an easy walk from the Glenwood Springs Amtrak station. We took the daily 'California Zephr' from Denver. It took less than ten minutes for my wife and I to walk with our luggage to the hotel from the train station. We reserved a King Jacuzzi Suite (The Crystal River Suite) and our jacuzzi suite was superior. The suite's excellent air conditioning is welcomed relief in the middle of summer.
