This historic hotel, at the foot of Pikes Peak, started life in 1873 as a stagecoach stop on the route from Colorado Springs to Leadville. It then evolved into a 20-room boarding house known as ‘The Inn’, before transforming into a sophisticated resort hotel. Today the property has a AAA Four Diamond status, with 54 guest rooms uniquely decorated in the style of the late 1800s.
Built in 1902 as a stock exchange for local mining companies, this luxury boutique hotel, with its own spa, is a great fusion of historic architecture and contemporary accommodations.

This quaint award-winning bed and breakfast, which names all but one of the rooms after a flower, promises to charm with its eight bedrooms offering fireplaces, steam showers, saunas and personal hot tubs on private balconies. The African Orchid room features a mosquito-netted, four-poster bed and photographs from the Serengeti to transport guests to the wilds of Africa, while the Colorado Columbine mimics a cosy Colorado ski and fishing lodge with night-blue walls and a mountain mural.
