Hotel of the week: The Broadmoor
Built by an “ardent anti-Prohibitionist,” the Broadmoor was renowned for boozy soirees.
Couples have been dancing to live music on the top floor of this resort “since your grandparents’ day,” said Katherine Rodeghier in the Chicago Tribune. The “swanky” Penrose Room still offers mountain views, and the grand style it establishes is upheld throughout this 1918 hotel. Built by an “ardent anti-Prohibitionist,” the Broadmoor was renowned for boozy soirees and commemorates them today in a display of 1920s bottles outside one of its three restaurants.
