Set in magnificent Colorado Springs, with its plethora of cultural and outdoor pursuits, this 316-room resort sprawls across eight residential lodges, with a dramatic mountain backdrop and access to all the region has to offer. After being greeted by the resort’s resident pup, Cheyenne, check into your cozy room or suite, decorated in natural earthy tones with subtle floral accents. There are three dining options: the signature Mountain View restaurant, with its award-winning Sunday brunch and locavore-friendly menus; the woodsy, convivial Will Rogers Lounge; and the seasonal al fresco Pineview Grille–plus the Elevations coffee shop, perfect for a quick caffeine infusion before hitting the great outdoors.
In the Area
Breathe in that famous Colorado mountain air on one of many outdoor excursions surrounding the resort: start with Garden of the Gods, a National Natural Landmark featuring towering ochre sandstone rock formations. Then explore the Manitou Cliff Dwellings, a series of fascinating structures built into the cliffs 700 years ago by the Anasazi people. From those great heights, head underground to Cave of the Winds, where you can take guided tours of caves naturally festooned with crystals, stalagmites, and stone columns.
How to Get There
Excellent views, beautiful resort, good food, good service, rooms are a bit dated but still very very nice. Be prepared to walk, most rooms are a bit of a walk from everything but the views make it worth it.
Rude staff, dirty/smelly rooms. The views and the pool were the only things worth experiencing. Went for the resort experience and left feeling like we had stayed in a motel. Disappointing way to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Oh well.
We have stayed at this property numerous times, but we have just stayed our LAST time! The dinner and wait staff(Brad) were awful at Mountain view restaurant. Housekeeping was terrible. We never had enough towels, toilet paper, and the soap/shampoo dispensers were empty 1 day. Completely unacceptable! At the pool, there is a snack/refreshment area. It was unstaffed. I called about service at the pool area and I was told by the manager (Cathy) that school just started back and they were understaffed. If that was told to me when I was booking the stay I probably would have reconsidered our stay. On top of that, it took almost 2 hours to just have someone come down to the pool and address anything. By that point, we were ready to leave. Our last night, we thought we would give Elevations restaurant and bar a shot. It was even worse. Total neglect by the waitress. She had no desire to even be there, much less give us any amount of service. I finally resolved to the fact that why would a waiter/waitress give superb service to a larger party; because a party of 6 or more, they add gratuity!?! This was overall a terrible experience. If I ran my business with this level of apathy and lack of service, I would be out of business. Shame on you Dr. K and Cheyenne Mountain Resort!
