 The three Marriott hotels that were evacuated last week because of the wildfires in Colorado Springs, Colo., have been reopened. The properties are the 273-room Colorado Springs Marriott, the 57-room Fairfield Inn Colorado Springs Air Force Academy and the 95-suite TownPlace Suites Colorado Springs. News outlets reported Monday that the fire was 55 percent contained, but about 350 homes have been destroyed and two people died. According to Travel Weekly, M&C's sister publication, the Pikes Peak Cog Railway reopened on Saturday, and the Cave of the Winds and the Garden of the Gods attractions reopened yesterday.
