Hotel Receives Award for 56th Consecutive Year and Penrose Room Restaurant and The Spa at The Broadmoor Earn Five Stars for Seventh Consecutive Year
The Forbes Travel Guide unveiled its annual Five Star award list, honoring The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs for a record 56 consecutive years. The Broadmoor is honored alongside a prestigious list of the very best hotels, restaurants, and spas in the travel industry.
The Penrose Room restaurant and The Spa at The Broadmoor also each received Forbes Five Star awards for the seventh consecutive year, making The Broadmoor the only triple Five Star award-winning property in Colorado. This recognition further strengthens The Broadmoor’s position as a leading luxury destination in the United States.
“We are honored to once again receive the prestigious Forbes Five Star Award and for our hotel, spa, and Penrose Room restaurant to be recognized as among the finest in the world,” says Broadmoor President and CEO Jack Damioli. “I believe this is a testament to our employees’ commitment to service and enthusiasm for unparalleled service.” 
A gold standard in travel since 1958, the Five Star ratings process is based on more than 750 standardized criteria for hotels, making it the most rigorous and comprehensive in the industry. The process begins with a facility inspection that considers every aspect of the property, including its overall cleanliness, condition, and location. To achieve Four and Five Star Status, properties must meet or exceed bar-setting service standards that are determined through an unannounced, undercover service evaluation conducted by the Travel Guide’s expert inspectors.
