Hotel Feature: The Broadmoor

Within the picturesque mountains, streams and canyons lays The Broadmoor- a distinctive Colorado Springs Hotel that embodies the spirit of the West and inspires the adventurer within.  But what sets this hotel apart from every other hotel in the world?  It has claimed the five star status for 53 consecutive years, a new record.  This year, Forbes Travel also awarded the hotel’s spa and fine-dining restaurant, The Penrose Room, five stars making the hotel a “triple crown” winner.

Founder Spencer Penrose and his wife Julia purchased what was previously The Broadmoor Casino and Hotel in 1916 and set out to create the most beautiful resort in the world, modeled after the opulence and elegance they had experienced in Europe and the Orient. Since opening in 1918, The Broadmoor has offered impeccable service and distinctive amenities. 

Today, the resort offers a multitude of dining and retail options in addition to the award-winning spa, 54 holes of championship golf, 6 tennis courts, indoor/outdoor pools, paddle boats, horseback riding, fitness classes, guided mountain hikes, and more.
