The Broadmoor | Colorado Springs

Updated: Aug 14, 2020

Wow, it's been over a year since my last post. I guess that's what happens when business is good. I'm writing this during COVID and I've taken the rest of the year to finish writing my first book which should be done by December. I have traveled extensively throughout the year and I have so much to post on this blog. So, today I am going to talk to you about my visit to The Broodmoor in Colorado Springs.

The Broadmoor

The Broodmoor is considered one of the finest hotels in the United States and has won numerous Forbes Five Diamond Awards. We decided to stay here for three nights and then we would move on to another resort on our trip. Upon check in, I asked for their best room. We were originally booked in the main building, but I asked the desk agent if they had anything better to suit my taste of excellence. So, they gave us a complimentary upgrade to the west building overlooking the water.

The room was appointed with everything we needed. My old lady is strict on having a big bathroom with his and her sinks which we did have. I did enjoy turndown service with slippers next to my bed and chocolate on the nightstand. Each building does have a few restaurants and we did eat in both buildings. My favorite was eating breakfast every morning in the lake terrace dining room.

Upon arrival the weather was great. We walked around the property several times to get the lay of the land. We found where the gym and pool were located. We did use the gym a few times but didn't get in the pool. We walked through several of the shops on the property. I did find a 2.6-million-year-old megalodon shark tooth for sale ($700) in the mineral store on property. I was hesitant to buy it and have it damaged during the flight home so I had it shipped. It now sits on my desk.

The next day we went to Seven Falls, Colorado's majestic waterfall. It was cold and started to snow. We went all the way to the top and came back to the hotel and got ready for dinner.

The next day we woke up to snowy weather and decided to head over to Glen Eyrie Castle for a tour. I must say for the record that I saw more deer on this trip than I have in my entire life. They were everywhere. I love animals so I didn't mind at all. We came back at watched a movie in the theater located on the property. It's free for hotel guests.

All in all it was a great trip. The hotel is perfect for people with high standards. We checked out of this hotel and went down the street and stayed at the Garden of The Gods Resort. That will be my next post in the near future.

MY RATING: I give it 5 out of 5 stars. I had no complaints during the stay.

THE DAMAGE: Staying at The Broadmoor set my back $425.00 a night. This does not include tax, resort fees and the food we ate while on the property.
