The Cliff House was one of the nicest hotels we have been to - a historic property with modern updates. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful - and the location is central in downtown Manitou Springs. We highly recommend it!

A wedding brought me to the Colorado Springs area, but instead of extending my stay at the luxury venue of the wedding I wanted a quaint and historic lodging. The Cliff House was the perfect choice...historic, beautiful, small enough to feel quaint, and within walking distance to everything in town. The room was very comfortable, very clean, quiet, with a... More

I can't say enough about The Cliff House!! We stayed in room 201, which had a jet tub, refrigerator, fireplace, lots of storage space for clothes, heated toilet seat, and heavy drapes to keep out the light while sleeping. The bed and pillows were comfortable. Each evening they came and turned down the bed, brought ice, closed the drapes, and... More

Went to Manitou for a long weekend and stayed here for three nights. The place has that historical feel you want when you stay in a hotel like this one. The rooms are big and the beds are comfortable. The only problem I had with the room was the heater/AC was a bit loud. The free breakfast was great! there... More

My sons and I had 3 separate rooms on the second floor and each was unique and tastefully decorated with beautiful antiques, one was even complete with a fireplace. They even offered turndown service where they left a small plate of chocolates, and even put down a little rug for your feet when you got out of bed with bare... More

The Cliff House in Manitou Springs is a old world luxe accommodation within a short drive of Garden of the Gods, and walking distance from downtown Manitou Springs shops. Our room on the second floor had a wonderful bay window which allowed sunlight to filter through to a spacious, stately, and historic-feeling bedroom and sitting area. The bathroom is resplendent...

Beautiful property in the heart of town. Well appointed rooms, but...our room felt like we were sitting on top of a cruise ship engine. Asked to be moved, but request refused. Interesting though several checked in after us. They were kind enough to give us ear plugs (tells you a lot)! Be aware, sleepless nights are possible! Never to return.

A central location but not in the midst of the noise and honky rink of the town, you can walk throughout the town and to the cog railway easily form the cliff house. The staff was amazing - from the welcome when parking to greeting when checking in to friendliness and attentiveness of waiters - and the hotel itself is... More

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
