The Mining Exchange
The Mining Exchange is a Wyndham Grand Hotel in the heart of Downtown Colorado Springs. A brief walk will get you to fine art, drinks, and dining. A perfect destination for a romantic weekend getaway.
If you'd rather stay in, head down to the lower level of the hotel for some much-needed spa treatments at MX Spa. Spend some time with your significant other getting a couple's massage, let the steam room or dry sauna melt your worries away.
While the Mining Exchange is in the perfect spot to get out and about, the beautiful lights of the city, sparkling below will make you want to stay in and enjoy the view.
Cliff House is a great place to experience the history of Colorado Springs. What was once a stagecoach stop and the hotel's creation in 1874 is now the beautiful Cliff House. The historical hotel has changed somewhat through the years due to fires and floods that have ravaged it.
When you step into Cliff House, you are welcomed with faces, customs, and traditions of a time gone by. The walls are lined with historic photographs allowing you to be transported back to another time.
The Victorian-style suites are named after one of the well-known guests from back in the day. Each room is spacious and beautiful. A suite does cost a bit more but, with the added cost comes extra luxury amenities such as a fireplace, steam showers, heated towel racks, and more.
The Manitou Incline awaits you, take a walk over to the famous staircase and push yourself to make it to the top, 2,744 stairs. This is truly a workout, your muscles will be pushed to the limits but, the views from the top are well worth the effort. When you get back, head over to the SunWater Spa for a soak in the mineral waters of the soaking pool while you enjoy the sunset. Your muscles will thank you.
A weekend at The Broadmoor is the perfect family destination. Located at the lobby level of The Broadmoor West is Play, a fun dining experience.
The family can enjoy some American cuisine such as burgers, sandwiches, salads, pizzas, and more. While the kids play games, the adults can relax and enjoy cocktails, wine, spirits, and microbrews.
The whole family can enjoy some family competition with a friendly game of bowling. The kids will enjoy playing foosball, pool, or Xbox.
During the day, a quick drive to explore Seven Falls is an adventure everyone will enjoy. The beautiful views, waterfalls, rock formations, and golden prairies are all a beautiful sight.
Garden of the Gods Club and Resort
Garden of the Gods Club and Resort is the perfect getaway for a girl's weekend. Before checking in you can enjoy a hike at Garden of the Gods or just meet for a quick lunch.
Pre-dinner and/or post-dinner drinks at Fireside Lounge is an excellent spot for great conversation and laughs, just enjoy being in each other's company.
Instead of heading out to dinner, enjoy dinner at the Club Dining Room for casual dinner or gourmet cuisine.
Spend the day at the on-site Salon and Spa, get manis, pedis, and facials. Relax in the indoor whirlpool and steam room, or the outdoor infinity pool, heated to 83 degrees during the winter.
