City of Cripple Creek

The Imperial Hotel

This historic hotel was constructed in 1896 as the Collins Hotel and was renamed in 1914 as the Imperial. It was operated from 1946 until 1994 by Dorothy and Wayne Mackin, who founded the Cripple Creek Melodrama that was operated in the basement for four decades prior to the introduction of gaming.

The property has recently been acquired by Gary and Wini Ledford, who have undertaken a major renovation of the building. The Imperial Hotel & Restaurant has been lovingly restored, providing a beautiful location for visitors to treat themselves. Luxurious rooms await, with modern amenities and rich touches that will make your stay special.
