Mesa Verde Foundation Announces Lodging Partner Program
The Mesa Verde Foundation is pleased to announce its Lodging Partners Program! Our Lodging Partners Program launched this July, and already features four lodging establishments in Cortez and Durango – all within close proximity of Mesa Verde National Park. These partners support the work of the Foundation and are committed to our mission of promoting understanding and appreciation of Mesa Verde National Park. On your next visit to Colorado, please consider booking a reservation with our fabulous partners!
Lodging Partner guests have the opportunity to contribute a $1.00 donation for each night stayed. Donations are added to guest bills. Every dollar donated supports the Park.
We provide our partners with Mesa Verde Foundation logo window decals for each lobby entrance, to identify our partnership for arriving guests. Laminated Compendium/fact sheets about the Foundation are displayed at the front desk and in each guest room. In return, these partners receive recognition on our social media sites and a feature in our newsletter that is sent to over 2,000 local and international supporters. Additionally, Lodging Partners are recognized on the Foundation’s website with their logos that directly link to their website.
In response to the pandemic, our partners are dedicated to providing guests with the safest experience. Each partner practices exceptional health and safety protocols to ensure every guest is protected.
We are grateful to our Lodging Partners and for their incredible support. Please consider booking your next stay with one, or all of the featured partners!
