In 1893, Hotel Colorado arrived on the scene during a thrilling time in the history of America’s West.

The Hotel Colorado’s originator, Walter Devereux, spared no expense in the creation of the “Grande Dame.” The south court, the current courtyard, had a large pool in its center from which an electrically lit fountain shot a jet of water 185 feet high into the air, making an iridescent rainbow spray against the sunlight.
