Garden of the Gods Club: Colorado Springs Lodging with Spectacular Views and Luxury Accommodations

Garden of the Gods Club and Resort has a delightful luxe retro feel with architecture designed during the 1960s, updated with 21st century amenities. Although it is not located within the boundaries of this incredible free state park, no lodging is, it offers spectacular views from each of its 87 lodge rooms and suites. The spacious lobby and dining room open on the same gorgeous vista. In fact, the entire lodge has been laid out to maximize the views.

There's so many activities and attractions in Colorado Springs, and the nearby towns of Manitou Springs, and Cripple Creek you’ll need to make sure you work time into your schedule to enjoy the landscaped grounds with a reflecting pool, tennis courts, spa, plus the infinity swimming pool.

Across the road from Garden of the Gods Club and Resort is the 27- hole Kissing Camels Golf Course and the large well-equipped fitness center where you can imagine you're striding or biking into that vista.

Our New Book

There's plenty of dining options in Colorado Springs but fortunately, if you want more of that view, there’s a dining room in the lodge. The Grille in the Kissing Camels golf club offers its own laid-back charm with excellent food. The hotel itself offers the spectacular views along with gourmet dining.

As for breakfast, treat yourself to room service. There are some moments in life that are just perfect. They don't have to be big, spectacular events. In fact, it's often the simpler pleasures that we carry with us as cherished memories. Eating breakfast on the balcony of the hotel room at Garden of the Gods Club, with the view of Pikes Peak and the stone monoliths of Garden of the Gods -- a city park of Colorado Springs -- is one of those simple, delightful times.
