“Enjoyable stay in the Buffalo Bill Suite”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

We really liked the room. It was fun. Small in terms of square footage but it felt big due to the volume. We were there in early November and it was pretty cold so the fireplace came in very handy. Unlike most hotel room fireplaces that are just for looks, this one really worked! Tons of heat. The included breakfast buffet was one of the best I've seen and the dinner we had in the dining room was very good as well.

I thought we had selected a Bed and Breakfast, but was surprised to find it a "full-size" hotel -- but with the feel of a B&B...

The staff was very helpful, courteous and a pleasure.

The room was a nice size - loved the mountain view in the morning with the sunlight pouring in. The bed was comfortable and the fireplace a joy to have.

We tried the restaurant for one of our nights - and can recommend it. I went for a chicken piccata and enjoyed how it was prepared. Not the traditional Italian piccata - but delicious.

If you enjoy a walk in the morning - like I do, the town is right there as you exit the hotel lobby. Many fun stores, I can understand why this is a destination spot.

I really appreciated the staff and they were super when it came to the shuttle arrangements, really looking after me on the Friday before I left. They did look after all my parcel deliveries too. I did have some problems with the air conditioning but in the end got it sorted.

We just returned from a fabulous stay at the Cliff House. It is a block away from shops and restaurants. They require you to valet park but are quick about retrieving your car and have the tip built in to the hotel fee, so you don't have to have cash readily available. Our room was a nice size with very comfortable beds, and lots of small things that made a difference, like an electric heated toilet seat, and the light comes on in the closet when opened. They have a full sized ironing board, a hair dryer and robes in the closet, and will bring a humidifier on request. The service was great and the hot breakfast buffet had lots to offer and was served in a elegant dining room with beautiful paintings by a local artist, and a view of the mountains. They have coffee at the ready with to go cups just outside the dining area. There is a nice front porch with chairs to lounge on, as well as a large fitness room, and a large living area with couches for guests to enjoy as well as wifi throughout the hotel. The staff was friendly and happy to help. The town is quaint with lots of restaurants in walking distance but don't miss the local made ice cream. You will want to frequent that daily.

The Cliff House in Manitou Springs, CO is one of my husband and my favorite destinations. A short hour ride from Denver you are a world away. The charming, friendly and well appointed Cliff House is simply a delight. Romantic and cozy with a wonderful attentive staff.

We stayed this time in the Henry Ford suite. Very nice, comfy bed and an amazing bathroom! Double shower and huge jetted tub for two. A fireplace and really soft relaxing couch helped us to relax on a quiet Saturday afternoon. The hustle and bustle of the quaint litte town is only steps away but the Cliff House is on a much quieter street away from any type of noise.

Highly recommend if you are looking for a nice romantic getaway.

Room Tip: A "Celebrity Suite" is worth the few dollars more.

Beautiful old world experience. Unbelievably accommodating staff. We had a lovely , very affordable meal...trout, raspberry soufflé ...just great in a beautiful dining room. Our room was by far one of my favourites...and it wasn't even a celebrity room.. It was a king size delux...electronic fireplace, lovely dressing bathing area with large windows but utter privacy. We didn't get to spend much time in Manitou springs but we plan on returning , I hope very soon. Just beautiful.
Btw, the Cog train is very close , easy access.

Room Tip: Highly recommend 216

We were there for several nights with high-school aged children before flying home from vacation.

The hotel itself is located adjacent to downtown, but on a quieter street. It is a beautiful property, with a circular drive and a large veranda on the front. The building itself is well maintained, and a large lobby was very welcoming.

The rooms were nice - we had two rooms, one for us, and one for the kids. Everything was well done. The Internet access was good - enough so to stream a couple of movies via our laptop to the television in our room. ;)

The staff was incredible. All were very friendly, and not falsely so. Willing to stop and chat if you wanted to ask some questions, and seemed very happy. The doorman I talked to has been with the hotel for twelve years. I am amazed at the quality of their staff.

We had brunch there two mornings, and it was quite relaxing. Plenty of room to sit and "hang out", and the room was large enough for everyone who was eating, never a rushed feeling. This not a "cardboard breakfast" like some of the chains, everything was excellent and freshly prepared.

No doubt, if we end up nearby again we'll be staying there.

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
