The Broadmoor

Here are some shots of the beautiful Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs. My boss and our team was honored with a CIO 100 award for saving 1.2 billion dollars with one of the IT systems we created. bp

The Broadmoor consists of larger hotels (many) plus these nice villas:

I’ll put up some of the awards ceremony, too. Bill

LOL. It was pretty star-studded from an IT perspective. i had lunch on Tuesday with the CIOs of many top companies, including Facebook, Cisco, the FCC, many top banks and pharmaceutical companies, etc. And little old me. Pretty amazing. bp

Cool Deal BP. We had a couple people tell us that was a must see place. We had planned to stop there last fall during our trip to Colorado Springs, even had it on the list. Then at the end of the trip we said, hey, we forgot the Broadmoor ~~~~ Us >> :oops: :oops:

My brother and I had lunch there many moons ago, I think back in the mid 80's while on a trip that included Montana for my youngest brother's wedding. We paid almost $30 for lunch and I thought that was crazy!!!! That would probably be the tip now? :lol:

It was really a nice place. I ate lunch at the Tavern on the last day and the prices were not bad at all. But then again, I live in DC! Pretty comparable to what we spend around here going downtown. But probably the best wedge salad of my life. Amazing. Great steak, too. bp
