I usually stay at the Marriott when I stay in Colorado Springs I just couldn't see paying the 134.00 dollars it would take to stay there. I called a friend that visits this are often and she recommended the Academy Hotel. From the outside I wasn't convinced of my friends opinion, but as soon as I went inside I was presently surprised. The room was so quiet, the beds super comfortable, temperature of room was perfect. I don't sleep in often but I did at this hotel. There was a lot of places to eat around the hotel. The breakfast was good and I was happy it was also included in the price if the room unlike the Marriott which I would have had to pay for breakfast on top of their room fee. Free wi-fi which I love also was included. There was a nice flat screen t.v. also. Need I say more? I highly recommend this hotel. FYI I did ask for a quiet room so I don't know if this made a difference.
