Penrose Room Restaurant and The Spa at The Broadmoor Receive Awards for Eighth Consecutive Year
(Colorado Springs, Colo.) – Further cementing its place among the top hotels, restaurants, and spas in the industry, the Forbes Travel Guide has again bestowed The Broadmoor with its coveted Five Star Award. For a record-breaking 57 consecutive years, the iconic Colorado Springs destination has been recognized for its commitment to helping guests “Discover Adventure” within an authentic and elegant western atmosphere.
“What an honor it is to receive this Triple Crown of distinction from Forbes,” says Broadmoor President and CEO Jack Damioli. “To be acknowledged in this way strengthens our dedication to outstanding service, whether we are looking toward the future or celebrating our rich history during our upcoming centennial anniversary in 2018. The Penrose Room and The Spa at The Broadmoor are just two examples of the world-class experience we strive to offer at our world-class destination.”
The Broadmoor’s Spa Director Cassie Hernandez added, “We are thrilled to have The Spa at The Broadmoor presented once again with such a prestigious award. Guest satisfaction is our top priority, and we are proud to be recognized for our efforts.”
A gold standard in travel since 1958, the Five Star ratings process is based on more than 750 standardized criteria for hotels, making it the most rigorous and comprehensive in the industry. The process begins with a facility inspection that considers every aspect of the property, including its overall cleanliness, condition, and location. To achieve Four and Five Star Status, properties must meet or exceed bar-setting service standards that are determined through an unannounced, undercover service evaluation conducted by the Travel Guide’s expert inspectors.

The Broadmoor is a legendary resort, a destination unto itself with fly-fishing camps, wilderness lodges, and perhaps the best restaurant in the entire state of Colorado. But if you golf, it’s the East Course you want to play and take advantage (you are going to need every advantage) to try the newest Callaway driver in the rental set thanks to a unique partnership.
On the The Broadmoor's East Course's 18th hole in 1959, a kid named Jack Nicklaus birdied the final hole to defeat Charlie Coe in the finals of the United States Amateur Championship. It was Nicklaus' first major championship victory. And in 2018, the US Senior Open champions will play there.
And given we all want to be and play like Jack, this summer is a great time to take advantage of the new "unlimited” weekday golf package which includes accommodations; unlimited golf; personal locker, club storage and lots of range balls (you’ll need those too); and time on the practice tees.
