The St Regis Aspen Resort hotel in Colorado, US, is to undertake a $30m renovation.

Houston-based design firm Rottet Studio will carry out the renovation project, which will take two months to complete.

The revamping was announced following 315 East Dean Associates’ acquisition of the Aspen resort in October 2010 for $70m from Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide.

The 179-room hotel will reopen with 90 refurbished guestrooms, expanded catering space and a new fitness centre.

Starwood will continue to operate the hotel as part of a 50-year management agreement, according to
