Travel + Leisure magazine honors Springs hotels
Prestige is the word of the year over at The Cliff House at Pikes Peak. The 19th Century Manitou inn had a cameo role in the feature film "The Prestige" and has seen its international reputation polished to a high sheen this year by being named among Travel + Leisure magazine's list of the world's top 500 hotels. The readers poll last summer had The Cliff House 19th in North America and the just released list prepared by T+L's editors and reporters has the inn 24th among 212 North American hotels. Ten Colorado hotels made the editor's list with The Cliff House (87.71 rating) third in the state behind the Ritz Carlton at Beaver Creek (88.26) and Little Nell at Aspen (87.78) , and just ahead of The Broadmoor (86.49).
