When Spencer and Julie Penrose opened their grand resort at the gateway to the Colorado Rocky Mountains in 1918, the master plan was to create a place where European elegance met Western hospitality in the perfect blend of style and service excellence. More than nine decades later, their vision is intact and their dream is still alive.
Today, this spectacular resort boasts three championship golf courses. The BROADMOOR’s historic East Course - home of the 2011 US Women’s Open – and the traditional West Course were a collaboration of designs by Donald Ross and Robert Trent Jones Sr. Both East and West offer scenic and challenging play for golfers of all handicaps. The Mountain Course, by Nicklaus Design, has an additional 18 challenging holes and exquisite panoramic views. That is why the courses are consistently ranked among the best in the world by the highly respected Gary Galyean’s Golf Letter, as well as by publications like Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and Links.
Adding to the beauty of the renowned East Course, The BROADMOOR recently introduced BROADMOOR Cottages. Situated alongside the 18th fairway of the East Course, with sweeping vistas of Cheyenne Mountain, the Cottages feature 7,000 square feet of versatile outdoor space and their expansive verandas make the perfect hospitality area. From single room suites to an eight bedroom cottage, there is nothing typical about this enclave. It is a place where board meetings or corporate retreats can redefine business in ultimate comfort.
The 43,000 square foot Five Star Spa, Salon and Fitness Center features luxurious, exotic and essential experiences for the body, mind and spirit. The Spa offers cutting-edge products and treatments in a delightful and harmonious contrast to its back-drop of old-world charm and European elegance.
Eighteen restaurants, cafes and lounges make dining at The BROADMOOR an unforgettable experience. Consistent winners of the prestigious DiRONA and Wine Spectator awards, Summit – The BROADMOOR’s Adam D. Tihany designed restaurant– has garnered The Robb Report’s Best of the Best award and Esquire’s Best New Design and 20 Best New Restaurants honors. Finally, Colorado’s first and only Forbes-Mobil Five Star and AAA Five-Diamond restaurant, Penrose Room, continues its reign as one of the Rocky Mountain region’s top destinations for fine classic-style dining in a stylish atmosphere.
Broadmoor guests enjoy 744 well-appointed rooms and suites; award-winning tennis camps, 25 unique retail shopping boutiques, an expansive outdoor pool in summer, complete with a waterslide mountain and private cabanas, a year-round indoor pool with an outdoor lap pool, and a wide variety of adventures and activities within minutes of the resort.
The BROADMOOR is also the ultimate meetings destination with a 60,000 square foot pillar-less, carpeted ballroom increasing the capacity on property to 185,000 square feet of adaptable and flexible function space and a total of 60 separate meeting rooms. For the most intimate Board meeting, to unique private functions at Cheyenne Lodge with incomparable views of the Mountain Course and the city lights below, the variety of space is unparalleled.
