Preparing for Fall Travel

 

1905 Basin Park Hotel is Ready to Welcome Fall Travel

In order to fully prepare for the heavy influx of fall travelers, the 1905 Basin Park Hotel, located in downtown Eureka Springs, closed for three nights, August 23 – 25, to fully prepare the historic property for the annual surge of autumn guests.  The hotel then reopened for overnight guests on August 26.  During this pause, a dedicated deep cleaning will take place to embrace the higher level of safety protocols demanded by the more senior fall travelers during these COVID-19 times.

Cody Roberts, hotel rooms manager explained, “Areas of focus for deep cleaning here at the Basin Park Hotel will include the public area bathrooms, corridors, lobby, elevator, spa, outdoor spa gathering spaces, and all restaurant outlets.  After this cleaning is complete, a thorough sanitation fog will occur with hospital grade disinfectant to all public spaces.”

“We recognize that fall travelers want higher levels of safety protocols and will be making reservation decisions based on cleanliness and staff commitment to safety,” Roberts added.  “And, since August business softens with the return of schools reopening, we will take this time for deep cleaning and sanitization while allowing employees with school age children to be excused from work these days to be with their families prior to and in preparation for the start of the school year.”

Roberts concluded, “During this time of temporary closure, employees will be given a ‘thank you’ bonus to reflect the fact that the 1905 Basin Park Hotel has performed well over the summer months, nearly attaining past revenue results even while operating under restrictions applied in response to the pandemic.  Our guests appreciate that we have been and are serious about using personal protective equipment (PPE), holding restaurant spacing to social distancing requirements, masking, temperature checks of spa patrons, and making sure that all of our employees follow strict safety protocols.”

The “New” Basin Park Hotel” Has Reopened in Downtown Eureka Springs

Basin Park Hotel

Everything that has happened in the past three months, all has not been bad for the Eureka Springs tourism industry.  With repurposed employees and construction teams allowed to continue to work, these past many weeks have seen great productivity as the Basin Park Hotel.  This landmark hotel has been diligently cleaned, painted and upgraded.  The result is the emergence of a “new” 1905 Basin Park Hotel focused around guest experiences, services and an upgraded quality of product.  The Basin Park, as the only 24-hour downtown property with bell service, shuttle service, a resort host, hotel security, a restaurant, a spa, two bars and guaranteed parking, can once again step into its century-old role as “the Centerpiece of Main Street Eureka Springs”.

“Key to our redevelopment were such projects as deep cleaning, repainting and upgrading of our nightly lodging venues including the addition of several two-bedroom suites,” explained General Manager Jack Moyer.  “These new suites offer not only a bedroom on either side but an expanded common area and the inclusion of a soaking tub and walk-in shower. It should be noted that the Basin Park Hotel now has 26 suites.”

Moyer went on to explain additional completed hotel projects include the expansion of Spa1905.  Added were highly comfortable and sharply designed spa suites for guests who want to immerse themselves into the spa experience.  Guests who stay in a spa suite enjoy added service and amenities, exclusive outdoor hot tub access and are just footsteps away from the plethora of services and treatments that Spa1905 offers.  Located just outside the spa on the same floor is the magnificent new outdoor gathering space. This new spa deck sits aside a limestone bluff and includes an outdoor hot tub, fire pit and patio furnishings with only the sky overhead.   A totally new addition to Eureka Springs’ downtown scene is Jack Rabbett’s Whisky Bar offering the casual atmosphere of a living room featuring plush, comfortable seating; a fireplace; pool tables; and walls of big screen televisions.  This downtown getaway is located just down the hallway from the highly popular Balcony Restaurant & Bar, also being fully reintroduced, with its alfresco seating that overlooks downtown on one side and Basin Spring Park on the other.

“We have also added a resort host, seated in the lobby, to guide guests to everything fun and exciting to see and do in Eureka Springs plus introducing hotel guests to the new well-developed list of daily resort programming,” added Moyer, “which includes such activities as whisky tastings in Jack Rabbett’s, theater-style showing of movies, and a morning stretch on the roof.  Not many hotels around the country allow guests to welcome the day from their rooftop.”

The paranormal aspect of the 1905 Basin Park Hotel has not been overlooked.  In development and soon to be offered to both hotel guests and visitors to Eureka Springs, is an experience that includes not only hearing hotel tales that occurred inside the limestone and pink dolomite walls of this historic structure but patrons will also be able to partake in a unique paranormal investigation that will extend “from the roof to the depths of the hidden cave”.  Ticketing for this adventure is available through ReserveEureka.com.

“Safety and compliant protocols will continue as suggested by the Arkansas Department of Health as we fully open for business,” concluded Moyer.

SHRED Eureka Springs

————————————————————————————————————–

Announcing “SHRED Eureka Springs”:  A Spring Food, Wine & Adventure Festival

(Eureka Springs, Arkansas) – Shred is not only a way to mountain bike but also an attitude of appreciating the good things in life.  This spring, the 1905 Basin Park Hotel and its partners present “SHRED Eureka Springs”, a nine-day festival, March 27 thru April 4, in this exciting Arkansas Ozark village with SHRED being an acronym for SIP HIKE RIDE EAT DANCE.Dance Party Eureka Springs

It all gets underway Friday evening of weekend one with The Mighty Pines jamming at the Kickoff DANCE Party in Basin Spring Park located in the center of Eureka Springs Entertainment District.  This party, benefiting the Buffalo River conservation efforts, will feature the music of the Ozark Mountain Music Festival (OzMoMu) and will run from 6 o’clock until 8.  Also happening that evening, just steps from the park, is the performance of noted Southern Rock singer/songwriter Charlie Daniels in The Aud, the historic municipal auditorium.

Sip Eureka Springs

This first weekend continues on Saturday with a SIP: a welcoming wine tasting produced in concert with the Basin Park Hotel’s “Chef’s Table”.  This event features an opportunity to enjoy up to 30 wines expertly selected by Central Distributors, and Southern Glazers Wine & Spirits.  The award-winning wines of the Ozark area will be presented by Keels Creek Winery and Post Familie Winery.  Each table will be staffed with an expert to share the wine. The music of Eureka Swings will accompany the event. SIP also offers a VIP option with a unique opportunity to enjoy an exclusive tasting from the Roenigk Wine Cellar Reserves.

Chef Showcase

That next day, Sunday SHRED activities move to the Crescent Hotel.  The East Lawn will be the site for an EAT event: the Sunday Chef Showcase Brunch featuring al fresco seating in the manicured garden of this historic mountaintop spa resort.  Five guest chefs will present a tasty brunch. Also included is a Bloody Mary bar featuring locally sourced Bloody Mary Mundi Sauce ensuring a zesty flavoring for this popular brunch beverage.   Music of the Honey Collective will fill the air.  The brunch will be available for $29.95 with discounts available for overnight guests.

Hike Eureka Springs

SHRED activities through the week will involve hiking, biking and community.  The mornings of Monday through Thursday get underway at the downtown Eureka Springs Coffee House with a Wake-up/Meet-up event scheduled daily at 9 a.m.  During the day, each day has a community event that begins at 10 a.m. and guided by either CC Riders or Outdoor Adventures for Women.  Each event is just a little bit different from the rest, but each is a whole lot exciting.  Monday features a guided mountain biking RIDE at Lake Leatherwood City Park and an evening gathering at the Eureka Springs Brewery for a SIP of local craft beers.  Tuesday at 10 a.m. attendees will meet up at the coffeehouse to HIKE to and around Black Bass Lake gathering afterwards to hatchet throw at the Crescent’s Frisco Sporting Club and meet up for tap takeover that night in the SkyBar Gourmet Pizza.  Wednesday sees another RIDE event as attendees traverse over the variety of Great Passion Play mountain biking trails.  Later, SIP takes the spotlight at the scheduled community meet up at Brews.  Thursday is a big day for HIKE: an exploration to the Buffalo River National Park Region and Sweden Creek Falls, one of Arkansas’ tallest waterfalls.   Later that day, attendees will enjoy some live music and a whisky SIP in Jack Rabbett’s Whisky Bar.Center Street Party

SHRED’s second weekend sees the RIDE ramp up.  On Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. is the Center Street Bike Party. Guests can roam up and down Eureka Springs’ Entertainment District between Jack Rabbett’s and Chelsea’s Corner Bar. Center Street will be closed for Lone Star Action Sports who, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., will stage a jaw-dropping, free to the public, stunt performance featuring trick mountain bikers and extreme skateboarders.   The street party continues with live music from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. will come from the Food Truck Festival at the corner of Center and East Mountain streets.  The street party leaves time that evening for those wanting to attend the performance of Grammy Award-winning rock band America in The Aud.  Saturday is SHRED’s RIDE pièce de résistance.  Mountain bikers will enjoy free shuttles at Eureka Springs Mountain as you shred the downhill.  The new Lake Leatherwood Downhill, designed by Rock Solid, has already gained national notoriety as a signature piece of the Oz Trails System.

Those who will be experiencing the “SHRED Eureka Springs” festival form a new community of friends: those who love the outdoors and all the activities of Eureka Springs region.  As a welcome and as a thank you, festival attendees in this inaugural year are being offered a “Community of Friends” special lodging promotional rate.  Both, the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa and the 1905 Basin Park Hotel are featuring a promotional rate of $55 per night any day Sunday through Thursday during festival week.
