There are several decent hotels in and around Colorado Springs. The Cliff House in Manitou Springs is a good choice, with lots of history and some elegant "named" rooms. The Antlers in downtown Colorado Springs is perfectly fine, though probably not as special a place as it once was. The Broadmoor is spectacular but very pricey. But the best place to stay is certainly the Garden of the Gods Club on Mesa Road, overlooking the Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak and Cheyenne Mountain. The rooms are large, and all have unobstructed views of the mountain splendor. The several restaurants are excellent and reasonably priced. Golf, tennis, swimming, and other forms of exercise are all available "on campus." You get resort amenities at hotel prices. Give it a try!
