We stayed at a brand new hotel in downtown Colorado Springs that promises to be a popular destination for travelers to this vacation city. It opened a little over a month ago in what was many different businesses throughout the decades but was originally a stock exchange for gold and commodities, close to the gold fields of Colorado.
Since it was a stock exchange, there are vaults on every floor. They are now used as housekeeping rooms and we could walk in to see the inside.
It is so beautifully done: elegant, relaxing, unique, and abundantly welcoming. It is beautifully appointed in all aspects - the rooms, the lobby, the fantastic restaurant called Springs Orleans, and the bar area. No detail was left out. Prices are reasonable, too.
The hotel has so many of the latest features, radio wave entry to rooms, dual flush toilets, original art throughout including in every guest room, intensive reading lights by the beds, and granite galore.
Plush is the adjective to describe the furniture in the lobby, the beds, and the appointments in each room.
Springs Orleans restaurant was magnificent and I'm sure will become a destination for those of us who live in Colorado Springs. Beignets and delicious food from New Orleans is prepared with complex and pleasing results. From po' boys to red beans and rice, from gumbo to crawfish and vertical mini-cobb salads, from seafood and corn chowder soup to etouffee, we loved it all.
This new place right in the heart of downtown will take the guest out of our sleepy little town into the big time. I look forward to having guests who visit us in Colorado Springs call this place home while here.
I can't compliment the personnel enough, either. All were not only wanting to please us as guests, but seemed to genuinely love working there. Don't miss the Italian granite wall around the fireplace in the lobby. It is truly a work of art.
