DENVER – A night's stay at the ritzy Colorado lodge where Kobe Bryant (search) stayed last summer might be too pricey for most people. Furniture from the room where he allegedly assaulted a resort employee might not be.
Rooms at the Cordillera Lodge & Spa (search) near Vail run $325 to $725 a night in summer. The resort's used furniture, however, is on sale at a Denver business for $100 to $250.
Bryant, an NBA superstar, stayed at the lodge last June. A 19-year-old employee at the resort has accused him of raping her in his room.
Bryant, 25, charged with felony sexual assault, has said the two had consensual sex.
Steve Farland, owner of The Chairman, is selling beds, headboards, chairs and ottomans from the lodge in Edwards. He has a sofa and chair labeled "35," which he believes were in Bryant's room. He's still deciding how to handle those pieces.
"This is the furniture that was in use at the time of the alleged assault," Farland said. "Could it be from room 35? It could."
Furnishings include club chairs covered in Ralph Lauren fabric for $100; wrought iron glass-top writing desks for $225; and 2-year-old, king-size Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress and box spring set that originally sold for $1,000, now priced at $175.
Cordillera employees confirmed Monday they had sold the old furniture. The lodge closed for ski season March 8 and will reopen in July for golf season.
The alleged rape victim will testify in a closed session Wednesday in a pretrial hearing in state District Court in Eagle. Bryant is expected to be in court.
The Los Angeles Lakers star faces four years to life in prison or 20 years to life on probation if he is convicted.
