World-class sporting facilities draw visitors to this grand 3,000-acre resort along the eastern slope of Colorado Springs in the shadow of Cheyenne Mountain. An original Italian Renaissance palace and a contemporary complex across Cheyenne Lake house 784 rooms; opt for a Lakeside Suite in the spectacular main complex. Italian frescoes and a collection of 17th-century paintings embellish the elaborate public areas. The hotel’s 20 restaurants, cafés and bars include the rustically elegant Ristorante & Bar del Lago serving classic Italian specialties; Golden Bee, an authentic English tavern offering pub fare and nightly live entertainment; and for the more health-conscious, Natural Epicurean, The property also encompasses a full-service spa and fitness center, two championship golf courses, indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs, five tennis courts and a shopping arcade with 26 specialty boutiques. An array of outdoor adventures include fly-fishing, ziplining, falconry, archery and rock climbing. Historical tours of the property are hosted three times a week, and group fitness classes are offered twice daily. Though this full-service resort is magnificent, if in search of a hideaway, opt instead for the property’s more exclusive Cloud Camp or Fly Fishing Camp wilderness retreats.
