We booked into this hotel last minute after leaving another IHG property in downtown Colorado Springs that was a huge disappointment. This property was fantastic, no issues what so ever. Pike's Peak and Garden of the Gods are about 20 minutes away as is Manitou springs which is a great little community. It is located in the midst of a new shopping district with lots of restaurants/eateries within walking distance. Also, plenty of shopping available, target etc. An excellent location. Our room was clean, neat and the hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating.
