What stands out most to me is the staff. The employees of this hotel are exemplary and the service impeccable. Everyone we encountered was helpful and courteous. The breakfast buffet was excellent with all the options you'd want, including an omelette station with a chef. He was great and we looked forward to talking with all the servers each morning....

The first thing you notice when you walk in is the amazing atrium. There is comfortable seating, a nice happy hour and well stocked bar. I felt right at home as soon as we walked in. This hotel is a little older, maybe a little dated in places, but very clean with a staff that worked hard to make it...

I've stayed here four times. Each visit I had an excellent room and superior service. Very convenient, right off I-25, but no highway noise. And, the breakfast buffet, which is included in the price is probably the best ever. They do have pet friendly rooms, a big plus since we travel with our pooch most of the time.

This hotel is the must for your stay in Colorado Springs. One of the best experiences I've had with staff and services. I will always go back to their place each time I'm in Colorado Springs. If your in that area, do yourself a favor and check them out. Great memories of this place.

From the reviews we expected a different experience. The staff was great but the facilities were disappointing. We were assigned to a room on the ground floor that had furniture that should have been trashed years ago. We could not have our drapes open because the people in the common area fireplace were just a few feet away...no privacy. ('suggest...

Spent a delightful day with our son, who took us out to dinner, made me an ice cream cake, and just a delight to be around. Then all of a sudden told me that he had an appointment, and didn't know when he'd be home. In other words we best head home. I bought the story, little did I know...
