Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Awards (formerly Mobil Five-Star Award by Mobil Travel Guide) announced its list of Five-Star winners for 2010 and honored The BROADMOOR for a record 50th consecutive year. The BROADMOOR is the only property ever to achieve this status. Additionally, the historic Colorado Springs resort has the distinction in 2010 of becoming a triple Five-Star winner with the addition of both the Penrose Room restaurant and The Spa at Broadmoor.
The BROADMOOR is the longest-running consecutive winner of both the AAA Five-Diamond and Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star awards. Our 5 star Colorado Springs resort is located on 3,000 lush acres under the shadow of Cheyenne Mountain and offers an award-winning spa, fitness center, two swimming pools, three outdoor hot tubs, one lap pool; 54 holes of championship golf, six tennis courts with tennis camps; children's programs; 24-hour room service, valet parking, 24 specialty retail shops; and we are pet friendly.
When Spencer Penrose opened The BROADMOOR in 1918, he charged his Executive Chef with bringing inventive and international cuisine to America's West. To this day, over nine decades later, Penrose's influence can be felt in the professionalism of The BROADMOOR's diverse selection of restaurants, cafes and lounges. From casual fare, Sunday Brunch and poolside dining to the Five Star Five Diamond Penrose Room, there is something to please every palate.
Since 1961, the historic Penrose Room has been known as one of the Rocky Mountain region's top destinations for fine classic-style dining in a stylish atmosphere. The room, the menu, the service, and the amenities are as well rooted in classic hospitality as they are contemporary vitality, and with panoramic views of the majestic Cheyenne Mountain, there is really no place else like it.
Specializing in the celebration of American food and wine, Charles Court offers a menu that captures the spirit of Colorado ingredients. With fresh locally and nationally-sourced produce and meats prepared with classic American technique, Chef Greg Barnhill's menus are seasonally driven and change accordingly.
The BROADMOOR's 744 guest rooms and suites are located in BROADMOOR Main Complex and BROADMOOR West Complex. Luxuriously appointed rooms have either a king bed or two double beds, comfortable furniture and elegant bathrooms. Many offer views of beautiful Cheyenne Mountain and the resort's own Cheyenne Lake.
Along with luxurious accommodations and spectacular service, The BROADMOOR offers an unparalleled array of activities at our Colorado resort. All guests - sports-minded, leisure travelers, conference attendees and families vacationing with children - can enjoy an extensive range of activities. Take part in a group activity or engage in a solo sport... whatever your heart's desire.
