We were in town for a weekend get-away to celebrate our anniversary. The hotel is lovely and the location is ideal for enjoying this lovely town and all it has to offer. The front desk staff is, as previous reviews noted, EXCELLENT. Loved getting the $5 "green bucks" to spend at the attached brewery (Glenwood Canyon Brewing Co.) just for by-passing maid service.
We took advantage of the walking distance to many great restaurants (Italian Underground has a meatball appetizer to die for), Bluebird Cafe (took a bacon breakfast burrito to-go for our golf outing - DELISH!), Riviera, Sacred Grounds) and bars (the mexican restaurant on Grand is non-descript -- I can't remember the name -- but the margaritas that the owners Freddy and Franciso make are to die for with fresh squeezed lime), the Loyal Brothers (opposite of Hooters and Twin Peaks and Tilted Kilt, this establishment is run by a group of seriously adorable young men who make the predominantly female crowd feel welcome -- there was a bachelorette party and a woman's 27th birthday party), Springs, and Doc Hollidays. These last two are side-by-side, owned and run by the same people, and the staff is the same. These are some of the nicest bartenders we have had the pleasure to patronize, the atmosphere is fun -- even for our 50-something selves.
Golf at Lakota Canyon Ranch was wonderful -- and the whole weekend was a tremendous success. We WILL be back.
