Colorado Springs Hotels and Accommodation

(Colorado Springs, Colorado - CO, USA)

Where you choose to stay in Colorado Springs really does depend on what you are intending to do, and what views you would like to wake up to in the morning. Accommodation overlooking the mountains is obviously in great demand at Colorado Springs, with hotels on the Tech Center Drive standing in the actual foothills of Pikes Peak, such as the luxury Marriott Hotel and its superb mountain panoramas. Reliable lodging options also stand within the nearby Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City suburbs.

Further accommodation is to be found lining the North Academy Boulevard, where hotels such as the Candlewood Suites, the Drury Inn, the Hyatt Summerfield Suites and the Super 8 Motel are all within easy reach of the popular Air Force Academy attraction. If you would like to stay close to the Colorado Springs Airport, then consider accommodation such as the Econo Lodge on Panamint Court, the Holiday Inn Express on the Aeroplaza Drive, La Quinta Inn on Geyser Drive and the Radisson Hotel on Newport Road.

Where to Stay

A reasonable selection of budget lodging is available in Colorado Springs, including a number of chain hotels located on the Nevada Avenue, the South Circle and along the busy Aeroplaza Drive. Accommodation in the city doesn't come much cheaper than the outlying Howard Johnson Express on the South Nevard Avenue, which is just off the Interstate I-25 (junction 140) and is therefore only a short drive away from the downtown district. Close by is the Travelodge South, which is also very competitively priced.

Other affordable accommodation in the Colorado Springs area comes in the form of the Days Inn on Rusina Road, and the slightly more expensive Best Western Executive Inn and Suites on Harrison Road, which lies next to the Ronald Reagan Highway (US-25). Close by and considerably more upmarket is the Crowne Plaza Colorado Springs Hotel, which stands on South Circle Drive and has recently been upgraded to the tune of some $12 million.

Luxury hotels in the city of Colorado Springs include the Broadmoor on Lake Avenue, which stands at the very base of the Rocky Mountains and is close to the Cheyenne Lake. Onsite at the Broadmoor are no less than two 18-hole golf courses, as well as sumptuous accommodation spread over some 700 guest rooms. Also of note and nestled in the shadows of the Rockies is the Cheyenne Mountain, while for good access to the famed Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center, the Garden of the Gods Club Hotel Spa Resort on Mesa Road is hard to better and is widely regarded for its 27-hole Kissing Camels Golf Course and breathtaking mountain views.
