Voted one of the Top 40 Resorts in the West by Condé Nast Traveler readers, the Victorian-style gabled Cliff House at Pikes Peak is a thoroughly romantic hotel surrounded by a pretty veranda. It's set at the foot of Pikes Peak in Manitou Springs (a small town known for its natural springs), and has dramatic Rocky Mountain panoramas and views of Pikes Peak itself.
Set a block from the main street, the hotel is quiet but within walking distance of all the local shops, restaurants and sights, including Victorian-style Miramont Castle. The area's sights aren't far away -- it’s five minutes up Pikes Peak to Cog Railway or the Anasazi Manitou Cliff Dwellings, and Colorado Springs is a 10-minute drive.
Faithfully reconstructed in 1997 after a fire destroyed the 1870s original, the mansion’s rooms vary in size but have been finished with vintage prints, polished wood furniture and comfy armchairs. Snuggle up by the gas fire (suites only) and settle in for a movie night -- the hotel has a library of over 300 DVDs and Wi-Fi access is free. The celebrity suites are the most decadent. All are named after famous past guests, including Clark Gable and Charles Dickens.
The restaurant is worth the splurge, says Zagat. Feast on updated classics such as filet mignon with crab meat and wild mushrooms, all accompanied by fine wine -- there are 700 vintages to choose from. Lighter menus are served on the veranda during warmer months and guests can tuck into build-your-own pizzas at the Red Mountain Bar & Grill, where there’s a daily happy hour (5-6pm Sunday-Thursday, 4-5pm Friday-Saturday).
There is a $9 per-person, per-night service charge, which covers tips and gratuities during your stay.
