One of the most beautiful and romantic spots to vacation in Colorado lies just one hour South of Denver.
The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs Colorado
Couples will find a plethora of activities, fine and casual dining and fun to be had within the resort grounds.
As your car circles, the front drive and the valet greet your party, you’ll feel swept away into the magical world of the rich and famous. While being one of the few five-star hotels in Colorado, you’ll find that one of their packages may be priced right for even the most budget-conscious traveler to be able to enjoy.
Broadmoor Dining options include:
- The Penrose Room (The only 5 Star, 5 Diamond Restaurant in Colorado)
- The Summit
- The Tavern (which includes The Garden Room)
- The Golden Bee – an English style pub serving yards of beer and traditional food while singing old songs with the piano man every evening.
(*A MUST STOP if you are over 21)
- Ristorante Del Lago
- Lake Terrace Dining Room
- Golf Club Dining Room
- Seven Falls Restaurant 1858
- Mountain Club House
INSIDERS TIP! Instead of a sit-down breakfast, enjoy fabulous freshly baked breads and pastries, an excellent array of freshly brewed coffee and teas with free refills for hotel guests at the Espresso News. It’s located just south of the main desk and is a cozy spot to sit and plan your day and pick up any incidentals you may have forgotten as well as magazines and small gifts.
Many packages are available at the Broadmoor including:
- Golf Packages
- Spa Packages
- Holiday Packages
- Romance Packages
- Recreation Packages
- Meeting Packages for the business travelers
With a beautiful clear lake at the center of the resort complete with resident swans and complimentary paddle boats surrounded by a walking path, comfy benches and a restaurant/bar adjoined to the main hotel along your way, you’ll find you never need to leave the grounds of the resort.
In the summer visitors enjoy golf, tennis, hiking and sightseeing, while year-round activities include fly-fishing, horseback riding, rock climbing and ballooning.
The winter season in Colorado is sure to enchant guests with scrumptious cups of hot cocoa in front of one of the many huge fireplaces you’ll find both indoors and out throughout the complex, a movie theater, indoor pool, full-service spa, heated jacuzzi and one of the most spectacular winter holiday displays you’ve ever seen. The views from any window or walkways are simply breathtaking as is the drive to the local attractions.
Vacationers will find that a stay during any season at the Broadmoor will exceed their expectations.
Like to shop? Don’t worry, the Broadmoor is complete with specialty shops both in the main hotel, and sprinkled throughout the grounds specializing in designer clothing, gift boutiques, art galleries, florists, a bookstore, children’s shops and Colorado collectibles.
Other fun shopping outings include:
Manitou Springs – Boutique shops built into the side of the mountains include: restaurants, bars, gift shops, artisan demonstrations and Olde Tyme Photography.
Old Colorado City – A grouping of original Victorian houses and shops with an emphasis on Colorado made arts and crafts, local food, antiques and gift shops.
Whether you are a Colorado native, new to the area or plan to visit, the Broadmoor Hotel is a destination that deserves a spot on your must-see bucket list.
Dogs allowed but not really Friendly to your dog. Can’t leave home without your four-legged child? No problem at the Broadmoor. Your pooch is welcome here and will be housed in the lap of luxury with his own dog bed, bowls, treats and beautiful scenic walk for you to take Fido on. The only place you can’t take your pets is where they serve food. – Update… I can’t really recommend this as Dog-Friendly, there are no dog-friendly places you can eat, no places to let your dog run and if your dog barks while you are gone you could have to pay a large fine.
