ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.

Peak Hospitality announced plans for what is currently the Hotel Cascada that include a $5 million renovation and transformation to a Wyndham Hotel & Conference Center by summer of 2017.

The renovation of the property will include a redesigned lobby, multiple upgrades to meeting and guest rooms, and a new 1,100-square-foot fitness center, new exterior paint and a new exterior landscape.

Based on completion of the renovations, the hotel will officially adopt the “Wyndham Hotel & Conference Center” name by May 31, which will mark the end of the hotel’s first phase of remodeling.

The 11-acre property includes two four-story buildings with 300 rooms, over 30,000 square feet of flexible conference space, and New Mexico’s only and nationally-ranked indoor water park with five pool areas, two slides and other amenities in a 30,000-square-foot facility adjacent to the hotel.

The Peak Hospitality team plans to honor the long-time Albuquerque families that helped to build the original Four Seasons property as well as the rich history of its fine dining and quality meals. This will be accomplished in how existing banquet areas and restaurants are remodeled in the first phase.

Two additional phases will include work on the water park and other improvements at the property.
