Albuquerque, N.M.—Peak Hospitality recently announced the plans for the soon-to-be-renamed Hotel Cascada, which is set to house Duke City’s newest indoor water park and hotel. The Albuquerque-based hotel management company was selected to manage a construction plan that includes a $5 million renovation of the facility by summer of 2017, as well as a new franchise flag—Wyndham Hotel & Conference Center.

The 300-key asset is situated on 11 acres and comprises two four-story buildings and more than 30,000 square feet of flexible conference space in addition to an indoor park with five pool areas and two slides housed in a 30,000-square-foot facility adjacent to the hotel.

The renovation of the hospitality asset located at 2500 Carlisle Blvd. NE will be divided into three phases and will include a redesign of the lobby, upgrades to meeting and guest rooms, a new 1,100-square-foot fitness center, new exterior paint and landscaping, and the addition of on-site vendors. By May 31 the hotel will take the Wyndham name, marking the end of the first phase of construction. The next phases will consist of work on the water park and other improvements at the property.

“Since the hotel’s construction in 1972, the property has become one of Albuquerque’s most recognized landmarks even as it has gone through several identities and renovations,” Theodore Barela, CEO of Peak Hospitality, said in a prepared statement. “As New Mexico natives who have seen the transformations this hotel has gone through, we’re excited to see this property shine as the renovations progress to make it one of Albuquerque’s premier hotels and conference centers.”
