Prestige takes over Cordillera resort

VAIL, Colo. -- Prestige Hospitality Group took over management of the Lodge & Spa at Cordillera, one of the top luxury properties in the Vail Valley, in October.

Under the agreement, homes in the Cordillera resort area are being managed as vacation-rental properties by Prestige.

The 56-room hotel is the first property that Prestige plans to manage as part of its new Prestige Resorts and Destinations division, said Blair McKeever, CEO of Minneapolis-based Prestige Hospitality Group.

"We intend to prudently expand this new management and consulting division with a select group of boutique properties," he said.

McKeever said the company plans to increase the Lodge & Spa at Cordillera's occupancy by expanding sales, including a new focus on small meetings and incentives groups.

"We intend to maintain the integrity of the resort's existing operations while adding unique benefits for our guests," he said.

For more information or reservations, contact the Lodge & Spa at Cordillera at (800) 877-3529 or visit the property's Web site at
