Guest room décor recalls the late 1800s – armoires, teals, and celadons. Naturally, the spa tubs and steam showers are state-of-the-art. Celebrity Suites are named for famous guests of the past, but be careful who you ask for: the Jenny Lind Suite has peach walls, green valences and dark wood tables with spindly, lady-like legs, while the Buffalo Bill Suite looks like the inside of a tent on the High Plains.
Colorado archetype married to luxury
Drink in the Rocky Mountain air from the Veranda, which gets late afternoon sun and has the best seats in the house for watching the sunset over Pikes Peak.
The Cliff House Dining Room is an AAA Four-Diamond restaurant informed by the food culture of the West. Half the dishes on the list could have been brought to the kitchen by a local hunter: Duck Crepes, Grilled Quail, Bison Sirloin. The wine cellar has more than 700 selections.
Red Mountain Bar and Grill offers pub fare in a relaxed environment: brown-leather couches, a fire pit. Dine outdoors (weather permitting) on The Veranda.
The Cliff House saw the Gold Rush, gave shelter to trappers and hunters, bathed wealthy 19th-century capitalists in healing mineral water, and survived flood and fire before re-emerging in its present luxurious incarnation.
