We made a booking through Expedia and were we surprised when upon arrival we were upgraded to a celebrity suite. (Trip Advisor, if you had anything to do with that, THANK YOU!) The suite was amazing! We had 2 large sunny rooms, complete with fireplace, spa tub and heated toilet seat. The soap smelled wonderful. And unlike most fancy, upscale...

We stayed for 3 days and had excellent service. The valet drivers were very friendly, courteous and gave great advice for getting around the area. Room was always clean, complimentary breakfast tasty and front desk staff helpful. I would recommend this hotel.

We needed to test a dog/house sitter so we spent a night at the Cliff House. It is located close to our home so we knew we could come home if necessary. We had a wonderful room with a fireplace (which was not used) and a view of the famous incline. We had dinner at the Red Mountain Bar and...

We stayed in the Clark Gable suite for our wedding night and it exceeded our expectations. The room was very large and had great amenities. The staff was really kind. I can't wait to come back to the suite again in the future and wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel and the room were very clean. Definitely recommended

We throughly enjoyed our stay here. The staff was great, the room was very comfortable and the food was very good. The location is good, close enough to walk to all the shops and the valet parking in this small town was a necessity.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What makes a hotel truly special?Prestige? Romance? Luxury? As a four diamond Colorado Springs Hotel, these attributes are very important, and we have each of them in abundance, but none of them matter as much as... the stories. The stories that are started here, by brides and grooms celebrating their weddings. The stories that are commemorated here, when couples choose us for their anniversaries. The stories that are shared here, when family vacations become unforgettable memories. Our stories really do matter: they define who we are. You see, as the premier historic hotel of the Greater Colorado Springs area, our history is forever intertwined with what we are today. In fact, The Cliff House is older than the State of Colorado itself! And just like your story, we have had our ups and downs: we have played host to famous dignitaries, and we have been a barracks for soldiers. Later floods and fires have even threatened our hotel's very existence. But, just like you, we've persevered. After our extensive remodel and grand re-opening in 1999, we quickly proved that The Cliff House is once again one of Colorado's finest luxury hotels. Nestled at the foot of majestic Pikes Peak, we've managed to keep all the trappings of Victorian elegance and luxury and also become a leader in innovative room features with state-of-the-art technology. Since 2001, we've consecutively received the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award for both the hotel and our dining room. Our dining room has also received the DiRoNa Award, and Wine Spectator's Best of Award of Excellence, every year. From our world-class fine dining, our amazing rooms, personalized service, our fun new bar and grill, to the limitless experiences and activities Manitou Springs has to offer: we are confident that you will love your stay here... and what a story you'll have to tell! We're proud of our history. Come share yours with us! We're within ten minutes of downtown Colorado Springs, but (rest assured) a world away! ... more   less
