Broadmoor Resort and Spa

 After researching the historical, 5-star Broadmoor Resort and Spa, it’s unique architecture and  it vast grounds, it was surprising to see how , in person, it appeared out of nowhere at the end of a beautiful, tree-lined, residential street. When one normally approaches a 5 star hotel, the drive is usually long and winding or the resort itself is in a cluster of other, like minded high-end properties. The fact that the Broadmoor, although architecturally majestic and awe inspiring, has a way of blending itself into a charming, quietly elegant neighborhood, was a pleasant surprise.
Upon arrival, be prepared to be greeted by the friendly and ever-present door men, ready to assist you with any questions you have about the hotel and its amenities. The lobby’s hand-painted ceiling and elegantly papered walls harkens back to a more graceful period of time and are the first tastes you will get of the attention to detail that surrounds you.
Crystal and hand-forged iron chandeliers, elegantly comfortable furnishings, and fireplaces abound in the multiple sitting areas throughout the main building as well as the satellite buildings that house more guest rooms. Whether you want to play a game of chess or checkers with your traveling companion, read in a cozy chair or simply people watch, there are multiple opportunities to do so, in grand style.
The guest rooms themselves are decorated with traditional fabrics of florals and damasks in buttercup yellows, ivy greens and smoke blues. One of the many upgrades in the guest room that you will promptly want to install at home as well, is the remote control open and closing of the blackout drapes and sheers. Tradition and technology- a wonderful pairing!
The bathrooms have lovely natural stone showers, frameless glass doors and floors and countertops in soft, neutral colors. The soaking tub has a shuttered a”window” that can open up the bedroom area for natural light or conversation with the person in the next room.
The Broadmoor offers extensive dining options. Anything is available, from a 5 star dining room to casual pub dining, or appetizers and drinks at the Hotel bar. For convenience there is a small shop that offers sundries and the most visually stunning desserts you will ever purchase out of a case. Excellent options for a quick bite in the morning or anytime, really. There are several specialty shops on the premises offering everything from signature resort merchandise, fine cosmetics, upscale culinary gifts, art to-die-for and unique books.
The latest addition to the property dining and entertainment is simply called “Play”. The most elegantly appointed bowling alley you will ever encounter. With iron and crystal chandeliers over the alleys and butter-soft, tufted leather lane seating- you will feel like you are bowling in a billionaire’s basement. The richly-hued wood stain on the double sided fireplace sets off the inviting, cozy atmosphere and begs you to stay after bowling to the other side of the fireplace and enjoy a harvest old-fashioned cocktail or a beer and flatbread.
If you came to relax, there is a full service spa, with a multitude of services from a luxurious spa manicure to a soothing facial or intense massage. There is also a pool located both inside the spa building and outside. There are also wonderful also hiking options and great walking just outside the resort’s driveway.
The beautiful centrally located lake offers pedal boat excursions seasonally and has a wide paved walking path and bridge encompassing it, great for exercise or simply meandering through the resort.
If you are planning on a round of golf while staying, you will have your choice of three different courses that are both challenging and beautiful. If you’re lucky, you may spot some of the local deer that are happy to call these courses home.
Your stay at the Broadmoor will be like none other. History abounds here. The black and white photos  throughout, tell the story of the developers of this singularly original place, and the throngs of guests enjoying all the property has to offer, is a true testimony to their grand plan.
