Book a stay in our Holiday Inn® hotels in Colorado Springs, Colorado, a mile high into the Rocky Mountains. Hike through breathtaking mountain parks by day and stomp your boots to country music by night.
Our Colorado Springs hotels make it easy to explore the Rockies. The otherworldly rock formations in nearby Garden of the Gods glow orange and red at sunrise—a perfect time to explore this public park. Colorado Springs sits in the shadow of snow-capped Pikes Peak. Scale the mountain via the Pikes Peak Cog Railway and scan the horizon from the train’s picture windows for bighorn sheep and deer. The sweeping views from the top take in the state capitol, Denver, to the north and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the south. Learn about the people who settled Colorado Springs, from Native Americans to wealthy resort-goers, at the Pioneers Museum. The museum’s collection of regional artifacts—Native pottery, lucky gold pans and Americana quilts—is housed in a historic courthouse built in 1903.
Outfit yourself in leather boots and a shiny silver belt from the Western-wear shops downtown for a night on the town. Blazing stone fireplaces, leather couches and elk antler chandeliers supply the frontier ambience at restaurants just minutes from our hotels in Colorado Springs. Slip into your cowboy boots and take your appetite downtown for charbroiled elk steaks, bison burgers and an ice-cold Phantom Canyon beer, brewed right in town. Guests of our Colorado Springs hotels can test their line-dancing skills on the city’s dance floors, where two-steppers and country-western music fans kick up their heels at downtown clubs.
Stay at our Holiday Inn Express Colorado Springs hotels in summer for the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo or in autumn for the Rockies’ largest hot-air-balloon festival.
