The Broadmoor is Forbes longest-running five-star hotel in the world



The Broadmoor continues its reign at the top. The Colorado Springs hotel was named a Forbes five-star hotel in 2021, maintaining the rating for 61 consecutive years.

With the Penrose Room and the Broadmoor Spa onsite, it is Colorado’s only triple Forbes five-star award-winning property. That means the resort earned the highest mark for lodging, dining and spa services.

It is Forbes longest-running five-star hotel in the world.

The hotel was founded in 1918 by Spencer Penrose. Billionaire Phil Anschutz now owns the 5,000-acre property.

The resort offers plenty of activities, including bowling, falconry, pickleball, soaring adventures, golf, paddle boating, swimming, tennis, fly-fishing and there’s even an onsite movie theater.

With world-class Colorado hiking and the artsy town of Manitou Springs nearby, the hotel has charmed for over a century.

The Little Nell in Aspen was Colorado’s only other Forbes five-star hotel for 2021. It makes for a cozy basecamp to hit the slopes or roam Aspen’s streets.
