Colorado Springs, CO (Vocus/PRWEB) January 14, 2011
The BROADMOOR resort in Colorado Springs, has once again been honored by the American Automobile Association with the coveted Five-Diamond Award for Excellence. The BROADMOOR has held the AAA Five Diamonds for 35 consecutive years; only three other US properties have had the prestigious designation for as long.
In addition, Penrose Room at The BROADMOOR was awarded the Five Diamonds for the fourth year running and still remains Colorado’s only restaurant to hold both the Diamonds and the Forbes Five Stars.
“We are extremely honored to, once again, be the recipient of the AAA Five-Diamond award,” said Stephen Bartolin, Jr., President and CEO of The BROADMOOR. “To have received this AAA Five-Diamond award for 35 consecutive years is really a testament to our superlative staff and speaks strongly to our commitment in providing the best in service to our guests - and to our community.”
BROADMOOR Food and Beverage Director C.W. Craig Reed added, “Penrose Room has long been known as the premier dining destination in Colorado and this recognition from AAA cements that reputation of culinary and service excellence. We certainly appreciate the significance and prestige of this award and look forward to welcoming culinary enthusiasts to enjoy the unparalleled experience Penrose Room has to offer.” According to AAA, the Diamond ratings represent a combination of the overall quality and the level of services offered by a property, as well as by a restaurant. These widely recognized and trusted symbols help AAA members choose lodgings and dining establishments that meet and exceed their expectations.
