Located in historic downtown Pagosa Springs, Colorado. Enjoy the Loft at the Metropolitan Hotel. Take in the beauty of a 100 year old building that has been completely renovated and restored. Appreciate the exposed original brick in the kitchen and living room. Beautifully decorated with Sky lights and well equipped, spacious gourmet kitchen with black granite tile.
An updated bathroom with slate and a jetted tub and glass enclosed shower. Feels like a day spa! Cozy and warm with geothermal heating from the natural mineral Hot Springs. Unique & different with a retro feel throughout the apartment.
Moving from Texas in the fall of 1985 with our two young sons was out of our comfort zone – leaving most of our family and two grown daughters back in Texas. However, we fell in love with Pagosa Springs and the beauty of the mountains, and have always been happy with our decision. We bought the Metropolitan Hotel in 1988 after it was renovated. It was office space except for one four bedroom loft. After our boys grew up we moved to Denver and just recently we remodeled the loft and now use it as a vacation spot for family and friends and anyone else wishing to visit and enjoy a few days in the mountains. The loft is located downtown across the street from the world famous Hot Springs and our family as well as visitors enjoy the hot healing waters after a day at the slopes. Speaking of the slopes it is only a short 20 minute ride to Wolf Creek Ski Area. It's a saying around town that this area is the 'Best Kept Secret' in Colorado. Wolf Creek has the most powder in Colorado! It's a snowboarders paradise! Please leave your comments in our journal in our loft and please enjoy!

Pagosa Lumber Company founder A.T. Sullenberger purchased the two-story brick building at this location in 1918 which was previously occupied by Archuleta Merchantile and built by J.M. Archuleta Jr. in the early 1900's. After a fire destroyed the structure in 1919, Sullenberger constructed the Metropolitan Hotel which featured modern rooms, hot baths for guests and a motion picture theatre.
Now, almost one hundred years later, the Loft at the Metropolitan Hotel sits at the top of it all, welcoming guests to its historic history.
After growing up and raising two daughters in Texas, we decided to move our family to Pagosa Springs. We arrived in the fall of 1985 with our two young sons. We purchased a home on mesa heights and the downtown Liberty Theatre. The theatre is housed in the currently named Historical Metropolitan Hotel. In 1988 we purchased the rest of the hotel and have been the owners for 20 years. We sold the Liberty Theatre in 2001. The hotel was completely renovated in 1980 by Jim and Mary Colman. Currently the hotel houses 12 offices and suites as well as 4 retail stores. I have always envisioned having a hotel or bed and breakfast housed in the Historic Metropolitan Hotel and now my dream has come true in “The loft at the Metro Hotel”. The past 6 months I have put a lot of sweat and tears and the help of two local carpenters (Bob Fuller and Sandy Aims) taking on the challenge of the remodel of a 100 year old building into what is now my favorite hobby. The loft is my new baby and Wood family welcomes you to your new temporary home in the loft at the Historic Metropolitan Hotel. We’re using the loft for family and friends and anyone wishing to stay for a few days to a couple of months in our cozy loft located in downtown Pagosa Springs.

Downtown close to everything. The history of the building is unique and interesting.
WE ALSO HAVE ANOTHER LOFT PROPERTY- Sleeps 4 $150 night ask us about this!
Another wonderful stay. Our third. Would not stay any other place. This time the weather was really cold!!! But there was snow. Also really enjoy the convenience of the spa just a few feet down the street. Very friendly and a great price. Plan on coming again next year.
Once we discovered the Loft in 2010 we have not considered staying any place else. This trip ski trip makes our fifth stay and it was as good this time as it was the first; which is to say GREAT!! We love the location, especially after discovering Overlook Hot Springs Spa just 27 steps out the front door to the right. With four separate sleeping areas, a large living room and kitchen you are not crowded and you never get the "just another condo feel", but rather a cozy "at home" feeling. Having one bathroom is never a problem for us since we always have an after ski soak at the spa which provides shower facilities. The Kitchen is large and well equipped. This is a huge plus for us since we eat breakfast and dinner there and pack our lunches to take to the slopes. I almost forgot, it has a washer and dryer which helps if needed. It is upstairs, which is not a negative, just a fact. If I had to come up with anything negative to say it would be that sometimes you do get some light noise from the theater next door. It was Wolf Creek's 75th Anniversary on Sat. and for the 3 days we were there it was spring skiing. Mild wind and temp. in the mid 30's, which translated into getting hot. (We even opened the windows at the Loft during the evening until bedtime!) Even though the ski area was 50" below its normal snowfall for the year, all lifts and runs were open. Wolf Creek did a great job of keeping the blue slopes groomed so there were no visible obstacles to worry about. And of course NO LIFT LINES. We plan on being back next year.
We really enjoyed our stay!! The location was excellent. We were able to walk to The Springs, resturants, shops, and Pagosa Outdoors (where we tubed down the river). The Loft was very roomy, clean, and the kitchen was very well stocked. We will be back for sure!!!
This was our family's 6th annual spring break trip to pagosa and the absolute best place we've stayed so far! It's very clean and modern. The fully stocked kitchen was impressive. We popped popcorn and watched movies on the huge flatscreen in the cozy living room after a long day on the mountain. The laundry room was a huge perk; next time I'll pack lighter. Comfy and spacious rooms and the bathroom...WOW! Also, the location is so private yet, walking distance to the area attractions. Loved it! Note: there is a flight of stairs at the only entrance, keep that in mind if you have trouble with stairs.
A great downtown location with great access to the shopping and hot springs!
We enjoyed our stay at the loft. It was very conveniently located and everyone was very accomodating.
We would recommend this to our friends and would stay here again!
Location, Location, Location! The Loft is a wonderful place to meet up with family and friends. While our kids and grandkids were at Wolf Creek we walked the town. After dinner, some took the short walk across the street for some needed soaking at the springs. You'll find everything you need for a great stay!
