Cheyenne Mountain Resort, Colorado Springs

No doubt about it, the four-diamond resort, Cheyenne Mountain Resort is set against gorgeous vistas and a breathtaking view of Pikes Peak.

Guests can hike around the 200 acres or play a round of golf on the 18-hole Pete Dye designed golf course. They also have 17 tennis courts and a 9,000 square foot fitness center. Guest can take advantage of the 35-acre lake or the 5 swimming pools. It’s worth mentioning the Alluvia Spa and Wellness Retreat. While the spa is somewhat small, with six treatment rooms, it is a lovely, relaxing retreat. The resort has a lot to offer to families.

If you are thinking about holding an event or wedding, they have over 40, 000 square feet to accommodate you.

Available for your dining pleasure Mountian View Restaurant, Elevations Lounge and Pineview Grill. Mountain View is your typical resort restaurant with spectacular atypical views.  The food is satiating, and the Sunday brunch buffet rocks. Elevations lounge is a cross between a sports bar and a cocktail lounge. The food is on par with the Mountain View Restaurant, but not especially memorable. My opinion of the Pineview Grille is less than favorable. The Pine View Grille is on the golf course. I had a Board Dinner for 50 people, and it was a terrible experience. The decor was tired. The room was far too hot. I had to hand out napkins and flatware from a nearby cart myself as they were understaffed. The food did not come out all at once. In fact, some people were finished eating before others even had their food. Later the GM did extend his apologies. Had it not been for the good nature of our group it would have been a disaster. In fact, I was so distracted by the chaos that I don’t even remember the food. I will give them the benefit of the doubt here and say it was an off night. However, if you plan your event here, make sure to stay on top of it.

Cheyenne Mountain Resort has 316 guest rooms and suites, some with amazing views. The rooms and suites are spread over 8 lodges across the resort. This may not seem like a big deal, but if you are a family reunion looking to stay altogether or a less than an ambulatory person, it is something to consider. We had 250 attendees at our convention, and some of the older attendees did not appreciate the hike up and down the hill from building to building. For example, the restaurants are in different buildings than the sleeping rooms. If you are in good shape, you won’t mind the trek up and down the hill to the fitness center, spa or pools. Look at the resort map, consider your attendees and plan carefully if you are a group. Whether you are planning to stay at the resort on business or vacation, consult the site map and plan strategically.

Cheyenne Mountain Resort has been working on upping their customer service game. According to the Colorado Springs newspaper, The Gazette, Cheyenne Mountain resort was sold in September 2017 to a limited liability company controlled by a Tampa, Fla., investor. As in any hotel/resort acquisition, there is an adjustment period that can be felt, sometimes even by guests. It’s certainly worth checking out for that Colorado experience, especially for families.
