We came to Manitou Springs after a morning seeing Garden of the Gods. On finding street parking (an accomplishment) we looked for a spot for lunch, walked up Canon Ave and the classy old Cliff House looked inviting. The Dining Room was quiet and air conditioned! The wife enjoyed "one of the best" French Onion Soups she's had and their... More

Overall, we had a great experience here. The location is great because of the proximity to the COG railway, Garden of the Gods, The Cave and the historic village. We ate at the restaurant and the food was good and staff was great. Everyone we interacted with was extremely happy and friendly. The place definitely has character. Would highly recommend... More

The Cliff House is a beautifully restored Victorian style hotel. It's takes you back to a luxurious past time. We stayed in the Kathy Lee Bates celebrity suite and it was gorgeous! I had the best fillet mignon I've ever had at The Dining Room restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed every part of our meal. Staff throughout the hotel was friendly... More

Very beautiful and unique hotel. Service was amazing. It was right downtown and an easy walk to everything - very close to the arcade. We stayed in the Buffalo Bill Suite... definitely one-of-a-kind. Very nice breakfast buffet in the dining room with just about every breakfast staple you can imagine (included in stay). You can also order off the breakfast... More

The hotel was a great change from the big hotel chains. The staff was very accommodating. We enjoyed sitting out on the porch and walking to the shops in the neighborhood. It is a short drive to Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak.

We stayed here for two nights to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and everything was perfect! Our suite was spacious and comfortable. We had a king size bed, steam shower, and jacuzzi tub for two. We paid a little extra for the "romance package" which consisted of a rose, tuxedo strawberries and a credit to use in their restaurants. We... More

We stayed one night at the The Cliff House at Pikes Peak and loved it! It was very quiet in room 101 which is what they consider a Studio Room. Two wing back chairs, a desk, large tv, huge fireplace, and nice bathroom. The shower was great and I loved the Essential Products Bathe items. We ordered room service for... More

We needed a last minute reservation, due to a problem at another location in Manitou Springs. The hotel allowed an early check in, and our stay there was great! Service was exceptional, and the staff was personable. Breakfast was very good, and we enjoyed a very nice dinner in the restaurant.

We stayed two nights and fell in love with this place! They have heated toilet seats which during the winter months is just the BEST!!!! The staff was extremely helpful on places to visit in Manitou Springs. The beds were really comfy and cozy! Located in the heart of this beautiful town! It is within walking distance to all shops...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What makes a hotel truly special?Prestige? Romance? Luxury? As a four diamond Colorado Springs Hotel, these attributes are very important, and we have each of them in abundance, but none of them matter as much as... the stories. The stories that are started here, by brides and grooms celebrating their weddings. The stories that are commemorated here, when couples choose us for their anniversaries. The stories that are shared here, when family vacations become unforgettable memories. Our stories really do matter: they define who we are. You see, as the premier historic hotel of the Greater Colorado Springs area, our history is forever intertwined with what we are today. In fact, The Cliff House is older than the State of Colorado itself! And just like your story, we have had our ups and downs: we have played host to famous dignitaries, and we have been a barracks for soldiers. Later floods and fires have even threatened our hotel's very existence. But, just like you, we've persevered. After our extensive remodel and grand re-opening in 1999, we quickly proved that The Cliff House is once again one of Colorado's finest luxury hotels. Nestled at the foot of majestic Pikes Peak, we've managed to keep all the trappings of Victorian elegance and luxury and also become a leader in innovative room features with state-of-the-art technology. Since 2001, we've consecutively received the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award for both the hotel and our dining room. Our dining room has also received the DiRoNa Award, and Wine Spectator's Best of Award of Excellence, every year. From our world-class fine dining, our amazing rooms, personalized service, our fun new bar and grill, to the limitless experiences and activities Manitou Springs has to offer: we are confident that you will love your stay here... and what a story you'll have to tell! We're proud of our history. Come share yours with us! We're within ten minutes of downtown Colorado Springs, but (rest assured) a world away! ... more   less
