Downtown's newest full-service lodging property, The Mining Exchange Hotel, has been awarded AAA's coveted Four Diamond Rating. Fewer than five percent of nearly 31,000 properties approved by AAA achieve this prestigious distinction. The surprise inspection came over a month ago with the approval process of AAA board pending until today. “We are so excited to be given this rating, especially in light of fact we haven’t been open for a year yet,” explains Shelby Pywell Yarbrough, General Manager. “Our incredible staff is the reason we are able to attain this award,” she continues.

Owner, Perry Sanders adds, “Although we designed this property to ultimately be a 5 diamond property, to get 4 diamonds right out of the gate, without our spa, permanent fitness center or Gold Room being open, is very gratifying.” More luxurious enhancements are set to be in place for this boutique hotel that all of Colorado Springs needs to be on the lookout for!
