Forbes Travel Guide inspected properties before the pandemic and when regional restrictions allowed for guests' safe return.

“These 2021 award winners are a testament to the resiliency of the hospitality industry,” said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. “During an unprecedented time, these top properties adapted to numerous adversities all while maintaining high service levels and ensuring the health security of their guests and staff.”

The Penrose Room restaurant and The Spa at The Broadmoor each received Forbes Five-Star awards for their thirteenth and twelfth consecutive year. 

The Broadmoor is Colorado's only triple Forbes Five-Star award-winning property.

“To be recognized by Forbes Travel Guide this year is especially meaningful,” said Broadmoor President and CEO Jack Damioli. “We’ve learned how nimble we are and that we can adjust to our environment and conditions in ways we never imagined, all while still providing exceptional service and memorable experiences at our unique world-class destination.”

Founded by Spencer Penrose in 1918, The Broadmoor offers "luxury accommodations and authentic western experiences and adventures."
