    The Broadmoor
    Colorado Springs, CO
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1675 reviewsTripAdvisor (1675)
    Free WiFi

    Home to tennis courts, a spa and two championship golf courses, this massive resort features just about everything you could need for an exciting Colorado Springs vacation. Located on the southwestern edge of town, The Broadmoor earns praise from travelers for its large rooms, which are outfitted in classic, Old World-style decor. Recent guests also had high praise for the friendly and accommodating staff. If you have kids in tow, let them burn off some energy on the waterslides or participate in special activities through the children' program. When it's time for dinner, sit down at one of the multiple on-site eateries. The cuisine at La Taverne was a big a hit for recent guests, as were drinks at the Pool Café: Visitors loved sipping their cocktails poolside while enjoying views of the Rockies and Cheyenne Lake. Keep in mind that those guests who participate in the I Prefer Rewards Program can earn and redeem points by choosing to stay here.

    the ART, a hotel
    Denver, CO
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 911 reviewsTripAdvisor (911)
    Free WiFi

    If you're an art lover, you've met your match in one of Denver's newest hotels. As its name suggests, this hotel devotes nearly every inch of its space to art (it even boasts its own curator). And you'll see it right when you walk in the door, where a 22,000-light art installation by Leo Villareal greets you in the lobby. When you're not admiring the lobby artwork, peruse the two on-site galleries or head over to the Denver Art Museum, located around the corner from the hotel. Of course, you can also marvel at more pieces in the comfort of your room. Each accommodation is decorated with hand-selected art and outfitted with amenities like Gilchrist & Soames toiletries, an Illy espresso machine and complimentary Wi-Fi access. It was these amenities and the particularly well-designed, spacious bathrooms that wowed recent visitors. Another point of praise for travelers: The on-site restaurant, where visitors said you're treated like a friend, not a guest. In fact, according to recent lodgers, the entire staff does a superior job providing attentive and friendly service.

The Limelight Hotel Aspen's location between Aspen Mountain and downtown makes it a great home base for a variety of Aspen visitors, you can even rent a complimentary bike to get around, but don't come here expecting the exposed wood beams and bear-skin rugs of a typical ski lodge. The Limelight is decked out in more modern attire, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows, rich leather furnishings and shiny wooden furniture. Guests love the hotel's look, particularly on the rooftop terraces and around the pool area, which comes complete with two joint Jacuzzis. But people aren't the only ones who enjoy a night at the Limelight Hotel: Fido will appreciate the complimentary food and water bowls, not to mention the nearby dog-walking area. Meanwhile, pizza takes on a new form at The Lounge, offering everyone's favorite meal from organic, locally sourced ingredients.

    Beaver Creek Lodge
    Beaver Creek, CO
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 558 reviewsTripAdvisor (558)
    Free WiFi

    Despite its name, the Beaver Creek Lodge in Beaver Creek, Colorado, (about 13 miles west of Vail) is anything but an ordinary mountain lodge. Resting at the base of the Beaver Creek Ski Resort, this property adds a pinch of contemporary spice to the traditional Rockies resort. Beds here are adorned by furry throw pillows, while the lobby ceiling is illuminated by red lights. Sure, you'll occasionally find kitschy cabin-style wood furniture here and there, but the Beaver Creek Lodge ultimately caters to the hip and stylish rather than the traditional ski town visitor. Guests are generally delighted with the hotel's ambiance, not to mention the excellent customer service. They also rave about the on-site amenities, which include a heated outdoor pool. Beaver Creek Lodge is also home to Revolution, which specializes in rotisserie meals.

    Located about 21 miles west of Vail in Edwards, Colorado, The Lodge & Spa at Cordillera offers both easy access to nearby skiing as well as an escape from the traditional powder-hound haunts. Touting itself as "an all season resort offering unparalleled experiences," this expansive resort beckons to R&R-seekers with its golf course connections and Spa at Cordillera. When you're not on the greens or in the steam room, you can be kicking back by the pool or snacking on mouthwatering eats at one of two restaurants, Mirador and Grouse on the Green. But what recent visitors are really raving about are the breathtaking views of Vail Valley, which you can enjoy from your guest room's private balcony. For an extra cozy stay, request a room with a wood-burning fireplace.
