Pamper Yourself at the Broadmoor

Oh, you will enjoy the Broadmoor. It is the epitome of a Bird’s eye view of the Broadmoor property at the foot of Cheyenne Mountainluxury resort, set at the foot of Cheyenne Mountain on the outskirts of Colorado Springs. During our trip, Sandy and I had the opportunity to tour the Broadmoor, enjoy lunch and hear a bit about its glamorous history. Would we enjoy staying at the Broadmoor? You bet!
(However, you may recall, we opted to try a “cottage” in the mountains near Divide which we very much loved. These are two distinctly difference experiences, so you have to decide what you prefer.)

Spa. Tennis. Golf. Boutiques. Dining.
I can’t begin to tell you about all the amenities offered to you at The Broadmoor. This is a place you could easy stay for a week or two — and still not want to go home.

The Spa. Oh, it was luxurious. I believe 41 private spa Gateway to the Broadmoor’s splendid spaservice rooms. About 40 different services. The Spa groups its services into 6 distinctive collections fromOne of the ultra-relaxing spa therapy rooms Fitness to Beauty to Exotics to Indulgences. We thought we’d love to try the Gold Shimmer or Pearl Glow Body Therapies that use pearl essences from white mother-of-pearl and black pearl or an anti-aging gold wrap.

Tennis. This is the #3 rated tennis facility in the country. And its instruction is rated #1 by Tennis Magazine. Need to brush up on your game? Sign up for a clinic. If you love tennis, check out its Web page for more detail.

Golf. Three top-rated courses, including the redesigned Mountain Course which reopened last summer. Jack Nicklaus won his first national title here and then had his company return to redesign the course for the Broadmoor. The Broadmoor courses have earned a 5-star rating from Golf Digest.

Boutiques and Dining. Guests can enjoy dining at 15 different restaurants, grilles or cafes on the property. We had lunch in the Garden Room at The Tavern and it was excellent. The Broadmoor also offers 25 unique on-property boutiques which, of course, we checked out while we were there. Beautiful selections.

What More Could You Ask For?
I’ve reported on many nice facilities, but The Broadmoor One of the pool areas at the Broadmoor.seems to be a one-stop destination that would delight any girlfriend group. It sits on 3,000 acres, rooms either have a lake or mountain view. The Broadmoor has a zoo on Cheyenne Mountain. And it even runs daily shuttles to Cripple Creek, home of Colorado’s casinos.

You’d never have to leave the resort to enjoy each day. But it is in close proximity to all the sights I’ve been mentioning in the Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs area. So youThe patio and lakes at The Broadmoor. have many choices as to how you’d spend each day out there.

And one of the best conveniences being added is nonstop service to the Colorado Springs airport from Kansas City aboard Midwest Airlines. So if you didn’t want to bother driving down from Denver, you could easily fly in and take a shuttle to the resort.

Impeccable Guest Service. By the way, if you’re a Midwest customer, you’ll discover that Midwest Airlines and The Broadmoor share customer service values. We noticed that employees in all areas of the resort greeted us with genuine friendliness and hospitality. It’s just the “how may we serve you” or “how can we make your visit even better” culture that both The Broadmoor and Midwest Airlines have developed over the years and it’s reflected in the employees you encounter. It’s a very nice amenity that you just don’t find very often. And we appreciated it very much.

TIPS:
1) The Colorado Springs Airport
is just 16 minutes away. Midwest Airlines begins service between Kansas City and Colorado Springs July 1, with connections from East and West Coast cities, as well as Milwaukee.
2) Airport Shuttle Service. The Colorado Springs Airport roundtrip shuttle is just $30.
3) Onsite Car Rental. During our tour, I noticed a car rental office near the main lobby. If you just wanted to rent a car for an afternoon or a day during your visit, you could do so.
4) Artist in Residence and Special Tours. Love to dabble in painting, drawing or photography? Enjoy it while you vacation. The Broadmoor has an Art on Location program that features instruction and tours from prominent local artists.
5) Special Package Rates. Check out the Broadmoor’s Web site for some exceptional package rates for specific dates this summer. These are limited but very affordable rates for a resort of the caliber.
