Hotels in Colorado
Colorado is home to some of the world’s most beautiful mountain hotels and ski resorts. But while ski resorts have become synonymous with Colorado hotels, the Centennial State offers plenty of other accommodations to suit the tastes and budgets of the diverse group of travelers who visit each year. Whether you’re staying at an all-inclusive ski resort, a charming B&B or a small rented ski lodge, you’ll start to feel that legendary Rocky Mountain High within minutes of checking into a Colorado hotel.
As two of the state’s must-visit cities, Denver and Boulder offer an even greater number of hotel options for travelers, including luxury accommodations like the Ritz Carlton and the Four Season, and reliable, chains with flexible prices like the Hilton, the Marriott and Embassy Suites. Travelers on a budget will also find a number of midrange hotels in Colorado.
For a romantic ski getaway, the Cheyenne Mountain Resort in Colorado Springs is the epitome of rustic luxury. Scattered across eight residential lodges, this Colorado hotel’s 316 guest rooms overlook some of the Centennial State’s most breathtaking mountain views, and you’ll find a number of activities right on the premises, including squash and tennis courts, an 18-hole golf course, a pool, and yoga classes.

In addition to five-star rooms, this sumptuous getaway has a 54-hole golf course, a spa, tennis courts, three swimming pools, and an onsite shopping mall, movie theater and fitness center.
