I recently had the awesome opportunity to stay at the Broadmoor resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado for Platform 2014 (more on my experience at that conference here). I promised a post featuring the beautiful features of this location- so here goes: my top 3 reasons to visit the Broadmoor, and 1 particular one sports loving husbands will love.
1. STUNNING VISUALS EVERYWHERE
Photos via. I was there at the end of fall to witness the first snowfall. And it was breathtaking. The property is surrounded by mountains, and situated around a lake- so you get the best of both mountain and water. From a design point of view, it is pretty darn special.
We stayed in the newly renovated section of the hotel and it boasted every luxe detail you would expect in a resort of this caliber: tv in mirror in the bathroom, super plush bedding, bathrobes, luxe soaker tub, beautiful finishes… from an interior design perspective this place was exceptional (and kind of flawless!)
2. LUXE FOOD EXPERIENCES
All the food experiences are themed in some way- but not cheesy at all. And the "themes" get translated in every detail- the decor, the napkins, the place settings. Again, from an interior design perspective there were so many delectable details. I dined at a French restaurant with stunning linens and cutlery, an Italian place where we got to watch deer graze out the window (deer!), and a organic food bistro that was my favourite decor wise. Room service was delicious too. Pricing was as to be expected with a resort this luxe ($16 for yogurt and granola!)
3. A LITTLE DETAIL SPORTS LOVING HUSBANDS WILL LOVE
When we go to hotels, my husband kind of nerds out on the different newspapers he can get his hands on so he can catch up on sports from a variety of sources. So sports loving husbands might love this detail. This is how the newspaper comes every morning:
Such a lovely detail to hang the newspaper neatly on the door knob! I really hope to bring my family here one day to experience this fabulous location.
