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.
