“SCP is founded on three core values: personal wellness (Soul), social connections (Community) and sustainable practices (Planet). These values will be applied to a range of holistic hospitality experiences, including hotels, resorts, restaurants, bars, marketplaces, recreation venues and fitness clubs,” said Alpha Wave Founding Partner & CEO Ken Cruse. “Through SCP, our focus is on pure, hand-crafted experiences for people who want to make positive choices for themselves and for the planet,” Cruse said, who also serves as SCP CEO.
The first concept to debut from the new venture is SCP Hotels, which will open its first property in Colorado Springs on June 27 after a nine-month, $6 million renovation. The 176-room hotel embodies each of SCP’s core values: Soul, Community and Planet. The renovation, which took the property down to the bones, extensively utilizes eco-friendly and sustainable materials. The newly renovated SCP Hotel Colorado Springs’ design is based on a clean “eco-industrial” aesthetic, with features such as living walls, hand painted murals, new energy-efficient systems and solar power. The SCP Hotel Colorado Springs also includes a 12,000-square-foot health and wellness venue (the company’s first SCP Fit), a 2,000-square-foot social and co-working space, and a 1,000-square-foot market, featuring locally sourced organic produce and goods. The SCP Hotel Colorado Springs serves as a blueprint for future expansion for the SCP Hotels brand.
SCP COO Bill Tremper said, “SCP fills a gap in the hospitality space. More and more, travelers want to refresh their bodies and souls, and experience the ‘place’ they are visiting. We are applying the holistic values of the company to a range of experiences, venues and consumer goods – not just more services and amenities.”
SCP also announced it will donate five percent of its profits to charitable causes that share its values.
