Despite a rich history that began when The Broadmoor opened in 1918, this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel is adamant about keeping up with the times. In July 2011, the hotel completed renovations to both the public areas and the guest accommodations in Northeastmoor and Southeastmoor, primarily to replace furniture, fixtures and equipment as well as to install a new elevator vestibule.
In May, 2014, The Broadmoor introduced one of its biggest renovations in recent history. More of a reimagining than a traditional remodeling, The Broadmoor expanded the original Broadmoor West, adding 150 feet and three additional stories, housing an additional 31 guestrooms and suites. All rooms were upgraded to five-fixture baths and made larger. Two new restaurants were added: Ristorante del Lago replaced Charles Court and Natural Epicurean replaced the former Café Julie. The interiors were completely redone with rich interiors and even a stained glass ceiling was put in the lobby. The building's entry was reconfigured to more closely resemble the iconic entry of Broadmoor Main. Now, Broadmoor West complements the entire complex with a look and feel reminiscent of the original, but with a style and grace all its own.
Don’t think recent renovations will cause The Broadmoor to lose its historic charm, however. The hotel manages to maintain an effortless balance between the old and the new, making sure it stays true to its character while simultaneously providing you with the proper gadgets, amenities and services of the 21st century.
