A Look Inside BEC2022 Headquarters: Gaylord Rockies Resort

Don't get us wrong— we're definitely excited that the Best Ever Conference will be back in person in 2022. But we might be even more thrilled to be hosting the event at the vast 500,000 sq. ft. Gaylord Rockies Resort in Denver, Colorado. We're looking forward to spending February 24–26 at this location for several reasons:

Setting the Scene

You’ll know you’re in Colorado the moment you enter the Gaylord Rockies for its classic Colorado rustic cabin décor. Guests can experience breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains from the stunning 75-foot-tall atrium lobby windows. The resort truly captures the Rockies' ambiance — waterfalls included.  

Location, Location, Location

The Gaylord Rockies is a short 10-minute drive from Denver International Airport and is about 30 minutes from downtown Denver. For transportation options from the airport, there are taxis and rideshares such as Uber/Lyft, plus the Gaylord Rockies' shuttles for guests traveling to or from the light rail station at 61st and Pena, located near the airport.  

All You Can Eat

The resort offers an array of restaurants and bars on-site, including:

Mountain Pass Sports Bar

A casual spot with burgers, sandwiches, and a wall of craft beers on tap. There is a 75-foot big-screen TV in the bar to catch your favorite game on.


The hot-spot lobby bar and the perfect place to view the sunset from the Grand Lodge.

Old Hickory Steakhouse

Provides a more upscale vibe with high-quality beef, fresh seafood, and fine wines. This is a signature Gaylord Hotels restaurant that can also be found at other Gaylord properties.

Monte Jade

An eclectic Asian-themed restaurant and sushi bar.

Vista Montagne

Seasonally-inspired Italian cuisine.

Casual Grab & Go

Rockies Marketplace or The Cocoa Bean, which brews Starbucks coffee.  

Winter Fun

Did we mention the pools and waterparks? The Gaylord Rockies Resort’s pools are open year-round, and the outdoor pool is heated through the winter, so it will be open in February when the conference takes place. Visit the Relâche Spa for luxury and relaxation, or the Relâche Fitness Center, which offers modern fitness equipment including Peloton bikes. The resort will also offer seasonal winter activities for guests — check back closer to the conference date for more details.

Ready to Book?

There are exclusive hotel room discounts for BEC attendees the week of the conference — check out the discounted rates. You can also visit us at for more information about the BEC2022. We hope to see you this winter!
