Mr. Five Star's most special resort in the United States. I have been staying at this marvelous destination since the 1950's. Over the years I have seen many changes. The Broadmoor Resort is like that old bottle of wine expression, she keeps getting better year after year. The mystery to me is, how does one operate such a large Resort and still make you feel almost like you are at a small private estate. Well, they do it and they do it very well. Your wish is their command, and that's a fact.
The Broadmoor has not been renovated, o no, the Broadmoor has been totally "restored" to reflect what Spenser Penrose had in mind if he were still at the helm. The attention that was paid to the detail in the main building is almost beyond imagination.
I was there when the walls were removed and restored. I saw the many treasures that had been covered for decades with paint and plaster and now revealed for all to see. The Gaylord family really knows how to do a project like this the right way. They didn't skimp a penny here to bring back this historic property.
The next thing they did right is build a brigade of seasoned veterans of the hospitality industry to bring it all together. The Key person that leads 1,700 dedicated employees is Stephen Bartolin. Mr. Bartolin came to the Broadmoor by way of the world famous Greenbrier Resort after many years at the helm there. The Broadmoor has received more awards and recognitions than any other American Resort, and they keep coming. Every time I need a little escape from the daily grind I head for the Broadmoor. Summer, fall, winter, spring, the weather is always wonderful at the Broadmoor.
Golf, tennis, the Spa, the lake and massive pool, the mountains, the zoo, the food and I could go on for days. Check out their web site, book a flight, bring the children and I promise you will have the vacation you will never forget. Broadmoor web link
