DEADWOOD, SD – Deadwood Mountain Grand has officially completed its renovation and unveiled its completely refreshed hotel. Situated just steps from historic downtown Deadwood, the property was previously known as the 1906 Homestake Mining Co. ore processing plant and in 2011 became Deadwood’s only large-scale event center and casino, and is adjoined with Deadwood Mountain Grand.
The fresh upgrades include its 93 hotel rooms and five suites as well as common guest areas including the lobby and restaurant. The updated spaces provide guests with an enhanced sense of place, paying tribute to Deadwood’s rustic and industrial past, while pairing it with chic features to provide an elevated mountain lodge experience.Directed by Ste Marie Design, the design ensures the rich history of Deadwood is reflected throughout the hotel through artwork, materials and finishes. Through copious research in conjunction with Deadwood History Inc., the hotel’s refreshed interiors take cues from the rugged history of Deadwood balanced with contemporary finishes. The juxtaposition of
industrial verse luxe materials such as brass, bronze and wood are highlighted throughout the lobby and guest rooms, honoring Deadwood’s history of gold-mining and providing a modern lodge-feel to complement the positioning of Deadwood in the beautiful Black Hills. Lush fabrics such as velvet, suede, leather and sherpa adorn the hotel in rich eclectic tones creating a blend of lavish comfort and an elevated experience.
Stepping foot into the lobby, guests are welcomed by an array of historic photos sourced from Deadwood’s History Inc., allowing new visitors to have an immediate chronicle of Deadwood’s past. The lobby was designed to be a conversational space with two ample seating areas, each centered by beautiful stone fireplaces and ambient layers of lighting. In the main area, guests can take in the incredible views with large windows that frame the wooded hills. The check-in experience adds an element of nostalgia, with all the check-in desks designed to give
the illusion of old mining carts.
Taking the elevator up to their rooms, visitors peruse superimposed graphics on historic photos. As guests enter their rooms, they are immersed in comfort and invited in by rich textural elements, such as weathered wood-like wallpaper, playful plaid and velvet fabrics,
and intentional elegance highlighted by elevated materials like stone, marble and bronze. Within the bathrooms, a letter written by Sarah Sawyer to W.E. Adams, of the influential Adams family, is enlarged with a custom watercolor overlay as a wall covering, nodding to the town’s past. The brass illuminated mirrors and the shelving detail on the vanities mimic gold mining pans, again highlighting the building’s past. These elevated fixtures throughout the bathrooms offer guests an experience of luxury.
The hotel features 93 luxury rooms and five beautifully-appointed suites, all furnished with fireplaces. Additional amenities include complimentary valet parking, concierge services, a heated indoor pool, hot tub, fitness center, gift shop and dog-friendly accommodations
