It’s the ‘Crown Jewel of the Rockies’ – the Broadmoor Resort quickly gained the reputation of being one of the world’s premier resorts. It has a charming Old World ambiance that dates back to 1918. Its premier location is at the base of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains in Colorado Springs.
Today, this legendary, luxury property upholds its legacy of unparalleled elegance, service, and cuisine. Its famous visitors have included celebrities, heads of state, and professional sports stars. It also has one of the most extensive collections of Western Art in the world that perfectly captures the spirit of Colorado and the West.
The Broadmoor has a collection of 784 luxurious guest rooms, suites, and cottages with views of Cheyenne Lake and the Rocky Mountains. All are very spacious with warm color schemes and sophisticated touches. These premium accommodations have set the standard for Forbes Five Star resorts with refined, comfortable décor and upscale amenities.
The Broadmoor Golf Club is soon to be the proud host of the 2025 U.S. Senior Open. Set in the Cheyenne Mountain foothills of the resort, The Broadmoor Golf Club is consistently ranked among the best in the world. Two of the iconic courses were designed by some of golf’s greatest names, and have played host to numerous national tournaments, including the U.S. Women’s Open and PGA Cup Matches.
Deciding on which activities to do at the Broadmoor was one of the hardest decisions. All the activities are fabulous. Two of the things we decided on were riding the Cog Train up to Pikes Peak and Broadmoor Soaring Adventure.
What a historic ride to the summit of Pikes Peak – America’s Mountain, which is one of the most famous mountains in North America. The Cog has been climbing Pikes Peak since 1891. It’s been recognized as the world’s highest and longest cog railroad and is one of the most unique experiences in the USA. Everything at The Broadmoor Manitou & Pikes Peak Cog Railway is shiny and new due to a recent extensive renovation.
The Broadmoor Soaring Adventure was a blast! We experienced the exhilaration of viewing Seven Falls on a high-flying adventure that propels you across “The Grandest Mile of Scenery in Colorado”. This amazing course consists of 10 zip lines (divided between two courses) that range in distance from 300 feet to 1,800 feet as well as moderate hiking, rope bridges, and a controlled 180-foot rappel that offers stunning views.
It’s not surprising that The Broadmoor has won countless awards and accolades. In fact, it’s the longest-running consecutive winner of both the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond awards. This iconic Colorado Springs resort offers impeccable services and amenities. The Broadmoor has absolutely set the bar, on a grand scale, for a truly luxurious experience!
