“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

Dear Academy,

Our first stay at your hotel was truly an experience that was off the chart, if we can still use those terms. We were celebrating my birthday on January 20, 2012 at your Hotel and it was a birthday to remember, a jacuzzi suite. Our waiter was excellent in his serving skills and he had a delicate manner in which he spoke to us and served us. We really enjoyed our stay, right down to the room which was spacious, up to date, and clean. We enjoyed our VIP guest services. The only thing that we noticed missing, was cooking and eating utensils in our beautiful kitchenette. We wanted to stay I our room for meals (dinner) but this did not permit us. I must say, that the Hotel’s restaurant was the next best thing because it was so affordable. This certainly amazed us so we ate dinner there twice. Everybody was friendly from the front desk to the housekeepers. Customers greeted us in the halls which signaled to us that they too were happy customers. We usually stay at the Marriott to enjoy true luxury but the Academy topped Marriott in our minds. We decided that when we want to get away for a short trip and a little relaxation, it will be at the Academy Hotel in Colorado Springs. Matter of fact, we plan on returning in 3 weeks, hoping to get the same enjoyable room. We most definitely enjoyed the free Continental Breakfast that was superb, especially the Master Chef that made our tasty omelets. We tipped him twice because the food was so delicious. My doctor asked me to let her know how much we enjoyed our stay because she and her husband would like take short getaways somewhere nice. This is my experience that I will share with her. Thank you for wonderful a time and we hope to see you soon.

The Academy was perfect for us. We were in the Tower, and our room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The website’s pictures accurately depicted the hotel and our room. My grandson enjoyed the pool, which was clean and offered plenty of seating and towels, my son enjoyed everything, and all of us, including a number of guests, enjoyed the open hearth and seating in the lobby. We all agreed we will miss the morning breakfast, which had made–to-order omelets, eggs, ham, sausage, potatoes, biscuits, gravy, yogurt, fresh fruit and of course the standard, - and after way to many hotel breakfasts – the dreaded, waffles, pastries, and cereal. The on-site Falcon Restaurant is reasonably priced with good food.

Overall, this is a welcoming, relaxing, warm hotel, centrally located in what I consider the north part of Co Spgs, and as spread out as I found the town – close enough to get to anywhere we wanted to go – including the Garden of the Gods, and the Air Force Academy’s chapel. It is located by restaurants, stores, and an Urgent Care center. It is great for families and non-families alike, and a terrific change from the ‘box-chain’ hotels! Because we have family in the area now, we will make The Academy our hotel.

Excellent value. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly and helpful. The entire hotel is clean and very welcoming and warm. The breakfast set up was amazing… and the breakfast staff was great. Our room was clean and linens were fresh. I have stayed here before and will definitely stay here again.

Comfortable bed, Very Clean rooms. Our room was a little dated. I understand they have been renovating and that some rooms are updated and some are not?. Decor was retro and by retro, I mean that it was probably built in the 70;s and never updated, but that didnt bother us.. it was still well taken care of, beautiful and clean. I only rated service as a 3... because we had one waiter at breakfast that was very rude. The gentleman making the eggs was awesome! Hot breakfast included with made to order omlettes! What a treat! So nice because the restaurant/bar is right on site, along with a beautiful pool and friendly staff. Once we checked in we didnt have to leave again to go eat.. great for weary travelers at the end of the day. Beds were very comfortable and the kids absolutely loved the pool. we ate at the restaurant/bar and food was excellent. Not pub fare, a notch above that. I would also recommend this hotel for business travelers. We will stay here again- in a heartbeat
