The Holidays Are Alive at The Broadmoor
The Broadmoor is celebrating the holiday season with lights and culinary delights
This winter The Broadmoor is celebrating the season of diverse dining delights with holiday feasts, including spectacular Christmas buffets and indulgent holiday menus, plus fun events for the whole family and seasonal holiday stay packages. Holiday highlights at the Five-Star, Five-Diamond resort in Colorado include:
SANTA, GINGERBREAD MANSION, AND ONE MILLION LIGHTS
Starting on November 28, children and their parents can enjoy a special breakfast with Santa and his elves each weekend leading up to Christmas. Children of all ages enjoy the “Gingerbread Mansion” made by The Broadmoor’s pastry team and located on the Mezzanine floor of Broadmoor Main.
With a myriad of complimentary activities to choose from, there is something for every member of the family to enjoy during their stay. Families can enjoy a rousing game of bingo or laser tag, take in a matinee or evening showing of a classic holiday movie, snap a photo with Santa at The Broadmoor Christmas House, or tour the Penrose Heritage Museum.
