The Cliff House at Pikes Peak is proud of its Western past. In the 1800s, the hotel was a stagecoach stop and famous past overnight guests included P.T. Barnum, of the Barnum & Bailey circus, and Charles Dickens. Today, the hotel is the most luxurious in Pike's Peak. It offers a restaurant that serves local beef, an expansive ballroom, and epic views of the Rocky Mountains. Suites have been designed to reflect past celebrity visitors. Our favorite is the Buffalo Bill Suite, designed to mimic a teepee. It has a pointed ceiling hand-painted with illustrations of a buffalo and dream catchers. Framed advertisements of the cowboy's rodeo show, hanging lassos, and a lamp shaped like a pair of cowboy boots add to the Western theme, while a stone gas fireplace, flat-screen TV, and double sinks in a marble vanity keep things on the luxurious side. We wonder what the notorious showman would have thought about Wi-Fi?
