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
Overall the stay was good other than loud guests next to us. The rooms could use a bit of an update but over all a nice resort, very nice staff, great service. Lots of outdoor things to do, a bummer for us as it was cold when we stayed.
We had a baseball tournament in Colorado Springs, but not a very pretty part of the Springs. We decided to stay at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort and are so glad we did. The beds were amazing!! I have slept in many nice hotels and can stay without a doubt, these were amazing. It was lovely looking out the window at the beautiful view, going for an early morning walk in solitude and hanging out with other team families at the pool and bar. We are already looking forward to coming back later this summer to enjoy the beach and all it’s activities. Don’t forgot your golf and tennis gear!
The public areas of the resort give a grand appearance and the views from the main building and the lodges are spectacular. However, the lodges left a lot to be desired. First, there was a lot of construction activity that blocked us from the elevator that leads up to the main level. Lots of activity and noise (vehicle back-up sounds) port-a-pots outside our lodge, and restricted access made our stay unpleasant. No one informed us of the construction when I made a telephonic reservation nor when we checked in. Add to that, the exterior door walk-up rooms were comparable to a Super 8, not something I’d expect at a pricy resort. The bathroom was disappointingly small and nothing special. Our sidewalk was full of potholes and patched, making a dangerous surface for my mobility-impaired spouse. Plus, the service at Elevations, the bar on-site, was mediocre, at best. I truly wanted to like this place but we ended up leaving early. I had to argue with the front desk agent and her manager not to be charged a $50 early checkout fee. He relented when I argued that no one informed us of the construction at two opportunities. (We moved to the Doubletree Colorado Springs and were much happier!)
This was our 3rd stay and Cheyenne and it never disappoints. The views from the hotel are beautiful - both the mountains and the green golf course The location to Colorado Springs attractions is great. Our room had been painted and had new carpet and was extremely clean. My favorite part was the massive and well-equipped gym where I could have worked out for hours!
In better weather, a better experience awaits. Late-spring snow made the $43 resort fee a little silly. Great fitness facility but try using the pools in freezing weather. Lots of places have pools; the resort fee is basically to use a large fitness facility open to locals' membership. Try not to be put in the Bear-section rooms; they're right by the trash/work areas of the resort and you'll be awakened by trucks beep-beep-beeping as they back up. Make sure to take a side trip to the Broadmoor a couple miles away to see a beautiful property and hotel.
