Colorado trip less than month away and still don't have all hotels.. help!

Jump to last reply

I'm taking DH to Colorado for a week for his 40th birthday. This particular trip is vexing me more than usual since it's a surprise and he's unable to help me "trip plan" and give me his opinions... so I could really use your help here.

We are arriving in Denver May 28th, spending one night in Denver, then next day departing for the Broadmoor in Co Springs (our splurge for this trip). Spending two nights in Colorado Springs and actually quite excited about this area since there's lots nearby to see and do (Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Manitou Springs, Olympic Training facility, etc.). So I am sure we will have no problem filling up our days there. Then, I have three nights rented in a house in Estes Park, but that's not til Weds night. So here is our dilemma: We need a location for the night between Co Springs and Estes Park. I am thinking we'll probably hit Idaho Springs to go to one of the mine tours, and I would kind of like to visit Georgetown, so I was thinking of Beaver Creek. I need Hyatt nights to requalify for Diamond status this year, so that's why I was thinking of doing the Park Hyatt in Beaver Creek. Or, if it seems totally stupid to drive all the way to BC, give me suggestions as to where we should spend that night. Not able to afford a third night at Broadmoor, so that's out... besides, I'd like to see one more different "area" of Colorado, even if it's only for one night.
