Colorado Springs, USA
In a Nutshell:
Situated in quaint Colorado Springs, with incredible mountain views that never get old, The Broadmoor is a sprawling resort estate with multiple complexes, buildings, golf courses, tennis courts, pools, a fitness center, retail shops, spas, restaurants, lakes, and more. It’s not out of the ordinary to see people zipping around the property (or “campus” to use The Broadmoor's word) on golf carts.
You may have a hard time leaving the resort’s premises because of the amount of activities on offer. Somewhere in between dining at one of its eighteen restaurants, sipping mid-afternoon cocktails at one of the pool cafes, indulging in a dry sauna session followed by a Swedish massage, and completing an eighteen-hole round of golf, you’ll question why you chose to rent a car.
EDITOR'S TIP: Get Sunday brunch at the Lake Terrace Dining Room and save room for dessert! We recommend the bananas foster.
The Style: Grand historic American with a Mediterranean flare
