The Broadmoor, Colorado Springs

Tomorrow we leave for Colorado!  We love to explore the trails of Boulder, spend a day on Pearl Street and visit with old friends.  However, this year we are most excited about our return trip to The Broadmoor, a five-diamond hotel located just outside Colorado Springs, Colorado.

We first visited this hotel as a family last summer.  It is truly an extraordinary resort.  The enormous infinity pool with a slide and two hot tubs is reminiscent of a 1950s resort.  There are towel boys helping you out at every turn and waitresses carrying trays of fruity drinks.  The chaise lounges have super thick cushions and there is a playground for the little ones right around the corner.  

I did not play golf, but I hear it is a spectacular course.  I did enjoy the spa and had a wonderful massage.  

There is so much history at this beautiful, old hotel.  It oozes charm, and there are beautiful mountain views at every turn.  This year we are going to take the Cog Railway up Pikes Peak.  It will be interesting to see the damage from the horrible fires last summer.  We missed the fires by 4 days last summer.  

We will be staying in two connecting suites this year, so I'm sure we will love every minute of our stay.  I will be sure to post pictures of our trip on this blog and on our facebook page.
