My husband and I stayed for 5 nights at the historic Cliff House in Manitou Springs. Everyone at the hotel was gracious and accomodating, the included breakfast was great and we LOVED having drinks around the fire pit each evening at their Red Mountain Bar and Grill. There are many great restaurants within easy walking distance in Manitou and many... More

I always wanted to spend a night here, and finally did. It was a great stay in a Historic hotel and there is a full morning breakfast included. I have heard their dinners are great and hope to return for that. Valet parking, since space is an issue in this residential area. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. I take... More

When booking, the hotel answered all my questions with personal emails, so that impressed me. On arrival, it was raining, but we had help to get out things in out of the rain. The hotel is an old Victorian Inn and is full of character and also has an enclosed front porch area. We love our upgraded room and have... More

We didnt use their valet but to make sure you read all the signs, we parked our car in the neighborhoods behind the hotel and wasnt a problem at all. We highly recommend the stay it was in the perfect location... More

A beautiful, romantic, historic hotel in an amazing location. Rooms were clean, staff was pleasant and very helpful. The free breakfast was better than most. The only complaint I would have is a slight lack of amenities. It would be nice to have a pool or hot tub. The location is outstanding. We hardly needed the valet to retrieve our... More

Our stay was great. The hotel workers were very friendly and informative. They helped with any questions we may have had. The free breakfast was very good and the atmosphere was beautiful. The surrounding area was great. It is located in a very touristy place which was nice that we didn't need our car at all while we were there.... More

The Cliff House was the last stop on a nine day trip with WartherTravels which took us to the top of Pike's Peak on the cog rail. The hotel provided a flashback to the elegance of the past, furnished with period furniture and a porch with wicker sofas and tables for relaxing or dining. Some rooms included fireplaces, Jacuzzi tubs,... More

I have stayed at the Cliff House several times and it has always been an excellent experience! The hotel staff is great and their restaurant is also very good. Book a Celebrity Suite for the best experience!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What makes a hotel truly special?Prestige? Romance? Luxury? As a four diamond Colorado Springs Hotel, these attributes are very important, and we have each of them in abundance, but none of them matter as much as... the stories. The stories that are started here, by brides and grooms celebrating their weddings. The stories that are commemorated here, when couples choose us for their anniversaries. The stories that are shared here, when family vacations become unforgettable memories. Our stories really do matter: they define who we are. You see, as the premier historic hotel of the Greater Colorado Springs area, our history is forever intertwined with what we are today. In fact, The Cliff House is older than the State of Colorado itself! And just like your story, we have had our ups and downs: we have played host to famous dignitaries, and we have been a barracks for soldiers. Later floods and fires have even threatened our hotel's very existence. But, just like you, we've persevered. After our extensive remodel and grand re-opening in 1999, we quickly proved that The Cliff House is once again one of Colorado's finest luxury hotels. Nestled at the foot of majestic Pikes Peak, we've managed to keep all the trappings of Victorian elegance and luxury and also become a leader in innovative room features with state-of-the-art technology. Since 2001, we've consecutively received the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award for both the hotel and our dining room. Our dining room has also received the DiRoNa Award, and Wine Spectator's Best of Award of Excellence, every year. From our world-class fine dining, our amazing rooms, personalized service, our fun new bar and grill, to the limitless experiences and activities Manitou Springs has to offer: we are confident that you will love your stay here... and what a story you'll have to tell! We're proud of our history. Come share yours with us! We're within ten minutes of downtown Colorado Springs, but (rest assured) a world away! ... more   less
