We woke up to another warm day in Denver. Jim worked out and I took a 3 mile walk. I headed outside of town and found a park full of green grass, dogs, and people walking everywhere. It was beautiful and very peaceful considering I was not out of the city. I walked confidently around the perimeter of the park weaving around people asleep on the …
Our last full day at the Broadmoor and in Colorado Springs began as another beautiful morning. We had to change rooms yesterday since we opted to stay an extra night. It was no big deal and gave us a chance to go through our massive amounts of luggage.
Part of the reason that we elected to stay another day was the long list of activities …
Woke up to a cool and beautiful Colorado morning. Mason and the kids went down for breakfast and took the time to explore the resort. It is a very picturesque property, like something out of a travel magazine. The grounds are immaculate and have a variety of flowers, shrubs and trees.
In addition, it is not unusual to see does walking …
After so many days of touring, we took two days to relax at the Broadmoor Hotel. It was nothing short of fantastic, and we highly recommend it.

Today I traveled up to Colorado Springs and saw some of the best attractions there. First I went to the Air Force Academy. The highlight of the academy is the chapel. The chapel building has rooms for Christian services, Roman Catholic services, Jewish services, and Buddhist services. I also saw some cadets practicing their marches: Next it was off …

Historical Traveler Reviews The Broadmoor Colorado Springs
After nearly 50 years of visiting the Broadmoor Hotel, it is apparent that there are some things that need to be addressed for the benefit of the Hotel's customers.
My sister, husband & I stayed at the Broadmoor for 2 short nights in October 2003. We were completely in awe with the spectacular surroundings. Italian artisans were brought in to originally do the frescos, etc... The mosaic tiled floors, gilded ceilings & extravagant materials were beyond what we expected. I think of myself as a very picky consumer. I give the Broadmoor my highest recommendation.
We have stayed at the Broadmoor about 5 times in the last 10 years.
Too crowded during my stay
This resort seemed like it would be a nice getaway. The golf was fantastic, and the location was very scenic. I was here on July 4th weekend, and the complex felt way too crowded (lots of families). I would imagine that during less busy periods, this resort would be much more enjoyable. Food was pretty good, but not outstanding. Be sure to check out the Golden Bee Pub if you visit. The piano-player sing-alongs were a blast!
Overpriced and uninteresting, poor restaurants
Stayed 7/2003. If you like cruise ship ambience this may be ideal for you. I liked the rooms and beds. The setting is pretty but not exceptional. Staff helpful, almost excessively so. Hotel food was very, very poor. Way too expensive for the quality and you are somewhat trapped in a resort. No high speed internet in your room although you can use a TV webtv like connection in the room ... for a price. Spa ok but not exceptional.
My wife and I were looking forward to our stay at the Broadmoor this July fourth weekend as we have gone to many quality resourts in Hawaii and on the mainland during this holiday. The Broadmoor was an experience of excuses and appologies. The hotel staff was very cordial but constantly defended their lack of service, ambiance, and attention to detail, as they are noted for, by the resort being at capacity for this weekend. This was not a place for quiet and relaxation during our stay as the screaming from the pool echoed across the lake and throughout the property. One morning I went out to our patio to read my paper and less than ten feet away they are catering a wedding. My wife had to fight her way through a throng of photographers and guests in order to cross the bridge over Cheyenne Lake so she could return to our room. The Hotel Bar did not come close to it's advertised "quiet, confortable retreat, as the seating was cramped, service was terrible ( 15 minutes to get hostess and another 10 minutes before the drinks arrived. The Charles Court restaurant had a wait time of 20 minutes before you could be seated for breakfast. The Expresso & Newstand appologized because they were out of most items (you couldn't even get a bagel), due to the weekend crowd. I recommend that you avoid this property during holiday's as you will be disappointed unless your looking for Disneyland without the rides.
My fiance' and I just got back from The Broadmoor, not only was it gorgeous but the service was impeccable. All staff was helpful and friendly. Great overall experience. Would highly recommend.
We stayed here in May 2002 for our 16th anniversary. Everything was perfect -- we reserved a Classic room (the least expensive) and were pleasantly surprised when they upgraded us to a lakefront room with a fireplace. It was very romantic. Everyone who works there seems to love their job and we thought the service was outstanding -- the best we've ever experienced and we travel extensively. We enjoyed a lovely dinner at the Charles Court and we were wished "Happy Anniversary" throughout our stay by a very attentive staff. We would love to splurge again and stay there. A+++++

We stayed at the Broadmoor in February of 2002. A complete renovation of the hotel was almost done, and it was easily the most beautiful hotel I've ever seen! Even the entry-level "classic rooms" were lavishly decorated, and the junior suite that we stayed in was the epitome of luxury! The grounds of the hotel are lovely, even in the winter. Brunch at their Charles Court restaurant was nicely done, too.
