An iconic Colorado Springs destination since it was first constructed by Spencer Penrose in 1918, the Broadmoor hotel and resort complex is one of the fanciest places to stay in the country. Nestled under Cheyenne Mountain at an elevation of 6,230 feet, the Broadmoor is home to luxurious rooms, fine dining, a stunning lake, and even a ritzy bowling alley.
