Where is the Broadmoor Resort?
Framed by the stunning landscape of the majestic Cheyenne Mountain towering in the background, the historic Broadmoor Resort, a Luxury 5-Star Hotel, brings the wild west alive with a level of sophistication and charm reminiscent of European design, with a uniquely American twist only possible in Colorado. Located only minutes from the Colorado Springs Airport, with shuttles, Uber, and Lyft services available.
As part of our 2022 #OpenForBusiness small business awareness campaign, we were invited to spend a night at this gorgeous resort. Arriving in town in our helicopter, we were treated to a magnificent view very few people are privileged to experience. After landing at the Colorado Springs Airport, it was only a short drive of less than 15 minutes, and we arrived at the gates.
When Was the Broadmoor Built?
The architecture and color of the hotel are in the Mediterranean Revival style, with the pink stucco of its façade blending into the Pikes Peak area landscape. The main buildings are connected on a circular path around a lake. The original hotel building, now referred to as Broadmoor Main, was built in 1918. The others constructed between 1961 and 2001-are Broadmoor South, Broadmoor West, Lakeside Suites, and West Tower.
Along with eighteen restaurants within the resort complex, even the most discerning palate will find something to their liking. The Broadmoor has 784 rooms. Many of the Broadmoor South rooms have balconies, and some have fireplaces. The Penrose Room restaurant is located on the top of the nine-story building.
After settling into our rooms after a long helicopter flight, we explored the grounds with Public Relations and Communications Manager Krista. She gave us a private tour of the resort, sharing some of the area's unique history.
What Are the Best Rooms at the Broadmoor?
The Broadmoor's West Premier rooms feature modern furnishings blended seamlessly with luxurious details. These rooms are considered some of our most desirable accommodations with exceptional views of the resort's lake or the picturesque Rocky Mountains. One king or two queen beds are available. They are located in the Broadmoor West building complex.
Around the Resort
The following day we took the helicopter and flew past the resort.
