We had all of our events at the Cliff House: the rehearsal dinner, cocktail reception, wedding ceremony and reception as well as an after party at the bar. Most of our guests stayed at the hotel since we got a fantastic group rate and had farewell breakfast the next morning too. The staff was very friendly, efficient and professional. The ballroom was a great choice for the reception thanks to its elegance and romantic atmosphere. The hotel rooms were perfect and the food was great at all the events. Planning a wedding is always stressful but Kristin (sales and catering manager) made it very smooth and enjoyable. We are really happy that we had picked the Cliff House for our special day and can't wait to return for our first anniversary coming up soon!

Kristin the event planner was very helpful. I felt like she went above and beyond event planning and was closer to a wedding planner. I would recommend this venue as the food and cake was good, the service wonderful, and the ballroom beautiful. I felt like Kristin tried to work with us within our budget. The only thing I would point out is that from the ceremony location, it is difficult to see the mountains unless you are right at the edge of the room.

The Cliff House was the perfect place for our wedding! It is a gorgeous hotel with an AMAZING staff that truly knows what customer service is about. The value for the price is unbeatable ($6000 and i had the whole hotel for my entire day! and an amazing catered piano hour with scrumptous appetizers, and a full dinner for all my guests, that price also included all chair, linens, stereo equipment, etc rentals) No better place in Colorado!

A very nice location and convenient to lodge and hold a wedding in. The staff was knowledgeable, helpful and easy to coordinate wedding details with. Especially impressed with some of the cleaning staff's courtesy and help. The food was very good, as it should have been for the cost encountered. Highly recommend the Jenny Lind room for Bridal quarters.

I had my wedding and reception at the Cliff House in the Spires Pavilion and it was stunning! Everything looked absolutely beautiful. I worked with Kristin the event coordinator, who is simply fantastic! When we had a problem with our baker who wanted to deliver the cake during my ceremony she called and re-negotiated a time with them when they refused to work with us.

My problem with The Cliff House was with the food service. Unfortunately, Kristin left and everything fell apart. Anthony was put in charge and he forgot to bring bread to the tables before dinner, so we had to remind him. Some tables didn't get enough bread for everyone seated there. The steak we ordered was still moo-ing and bleeding when it got to the tables and there simply wasn't enough waitstaff. I'm terribly disappointed with the food service because it puts such a cloud over the rest of a beautiful evening. Additionally, there was supposed to be wine service at the tables, which didn't happen. When we complained Anthony then lied about how things went the night before - such a shame.

In the end, the food service was atrocious and did not reflect the amount of money we paid. It's so sad because everything else was lovely. I would recommend The Cliff House, but I would make sure you don't let Anthony run your meal service unless you want to pay $60+ a head for shoddy service.
