The dream continues to grow and turns into a plan. A plan that we believe will happen, the timing continues to remain uncertain—but we know what we want. It feels like no two people will more easily enjoy spending time together in a small space. We enjoy similar sites around the country, we both love road trips and we both love spending time together. ...
... to me. I heard a woman get out of her car and complain about how overcast it was. I couldn’t help but think that she was missing out on the real beauty of the mountains. I fully admit that the mountains in the sunshine is sheer perfection but there is other perfection…equally beautiful and enchanting. This is a lesson I learned by seeing Canada in different seasons. In the sunshine there is a color, emotion, shade that you ...

I slept for most of the flight to Europe, but I only slept about an hour and a half on the return trip. I’m sure this is one reason why the return flight seemed to take so long. Plus the return trip takes about an hour longer because the flight path is into the jet stream. We arrived in Chicago slightly ahead ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Colorado Springs Marriott
The Wyndham exceeded my expectations in every way. The room was spacious and comfortable, the staff was friendly and the service was great.
My wife and I stayed two nights at the Wyndham, Colorado Springs in Feb. 2005. It was a great hotel from start to finish. Check in was a breeze with no waiting, and very corteous and helpful staff. The lobby was very nice! Our room was on the ninth floor. The room was very nice. I read some of the other reviews and I don't know if they have remodeled the hotel or what but our room was very clean, modern, and everything appeared to be new. I can agree that the rooms are a little small. The televison in the room had a 13 inch screen so it was a little pathetic, but you don't go to Colorado to watch t.v. Our room was very quiet as well. We did not eat at any of the restaurants but I assume based on our experience with everything else they would have been good. The hotel sets on a hill so the views are wonderful. As for the landscaping it was great, just natural Colorado vegitation! You know Colorado has been in drought for the past few years and they have just used plants and such that naturally grow there. The hotel doesn't set right on top of any restaurants but a very short drive and you can get anything you want. Someone mentioned that this hotel was far away from civilization however in reality it is only about a 1/4 of a mile from the major freeway. Colorado Springs isn't that big you can drive accross the city in 20 minutes. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. At $66 per night it was a bargin!
What an utter disappointment. The website makes the hotel look amazingly luxurious, but unfortunately, I found the opposite to be true. From the outside, the hotel itself looks quite impressive, but it all goes downhill once you go through the revolving front doors which, by the way, were absolutely filthy the day we arrived (fingerprints, etc.). We were not expecting the Ritz, but we were expecting a nice, clean, comfotable room (is that too much to ask?). The first room we got was horrible. The carpet was coming up, the walls were stained with who knows what, and the bathroom wasn't big enough for a flea. We told the front desk (by the way, I must mention that the hotel staff was very friendly) and they gave us another room...just as bad. The wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling, still no space to breathe. Finally we requested a suite, thinking that would be a step up. Wrong again. The carpet was coming up, paint on the bathroom ceiling was peeling (a very large section), sink was cracked, stained, and very old, tub had broken stopper thing so that you could see straight down the drain....all the lovely green slime (gross!). Still, the so called suite was very cramped and uncomfortable. After a long day of sight-seeing, we would look forward to coming back to the hotel to relax, but couldn't because the room was so repulsive. Definitely not worth what we paid. What a waste of money.
I thought this was a nice place to stay. After reading some of the other reviews, I wished I had shopped more on the price. We stayed for $89 per night. We were on the 8th floor and I thought the room was well kept, comfortable, and pretty quiet. We did hear some noise from the hallway, but not too bad. There are always those inconsiderate people who let the doors slam. I wish they would make the doors so that people had to close them themselves or at least post a reminder on the inside to not let the doors slam shut. I thought the views and the location were good. It was close to I25 and if you drove a couple of miles the other direction, at the top of the hill is a nice plaza with a McDonalds, Safeway, and a couple of restaurants. I would stay here agin, but like I said, shop the price.
My family stayed there July 12-16th for our vacation last week. The property is located at the foot of Pikes Peak and we had a gorgeous view of the Peak every day. The property is right off I-25 makes it easy to visit all of the tourist spots. We were able to get the Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, Cheyenne mountain zoo and the Cog rail within 15-20 minutes.
Property in need of upkeep (cracked floors in lobby, cracked sink in room, paint, threadbare seats in restaurant, etc.). Check-in service was polite, but slow. Room and beds were fine. TV was small. Housekeeping in room was fine. Rooms were not as quiet as I had hoped (noise from hallway), but not a major problem. Indoor pool and hot tub were nice, but in need of upkeep and cleaning. Restaurant tables weren't being bussed; crumbs on tablecloth. Buffet breakfast was OK.
If you want to be out-in-the-boonies, this is your kind of place!!
Convenient to nothing! The lobby and guest rooms are nice, but the grounds and pool area leave much to be desired - - like some attention!
The staff all seem to be "new -hires" or in an early stage of the training process. "Wyndham By Request" members should not expect any special consideration. If you choose to stay here be sure to get a really good internet rate as there is no reason to over pay for what you will receive.
It was a nice place
I thought this was a very convenient and well kept place. The room was in good shape...a little on the small side, but very nicely decorated.
Nice view of Pikes Peak. Front desk staff a little stand offish...not overly friendly, but not rude. Good place to stay when seeing sites around down. Just a few miles down or up the interstate to any major attraction. The hotel was convenient to I25, but out of all the traffic in downtown.
Plenty of towels at the pool. Both pool areas were kept clean. No complaints.
This room was very good, the bed was about as comfortable of bed as you can get. They had like 6 different pillows and the covers looked new.
Needs to refurbish rooms
The hotel is in need of a room redecorate. The rooms are small, the furniture is old and threadbare. Service was just Ok. No one seemed to care about the guests. Restaurant was closed with no explanation when we arrived. Property is in the middle of a tech center and the grounds are small. Parking is not well marked. They try to make your journey in and out of the property like a rat in a maze. Too much money at $115 per night. I'd pay $80-$90 at best.
