In 1893, Hotel Colorado arrived on the scene during a thrilling time in the history of America's West. With its European fashioned spa, the resort surfaced onto a land of prosperity; to serve the wealthy, to house the ailing, to offer a playground to society's elite. The Hotel Colorado's originator, Walter Devereux, spared no expense in the creation of the "Grande Dame." The south court, the current courtyard, had a large pool in its center from which an electrically lit fountain shot a jet of water 185 feet high into the air, making an iridescent rainbow spray against the sunlight.
