With Pikes Peak looming above Colorado Springs it is hard to believe the city sits at 7000 feet. But it does. Keep that in mind when planning outdoor activities as you and your dog will need to take it a bit easier than usual. You can choose a hotel from most of the major hotel chains in the city from the Crowne Plaza to a pet friendly La Quinta, or a number of other choices. If you want to stay near Manitou Springs in the shadow of Pikes Peak and near many attractions there is the Best Western Executive Inn or the Red Wing Motel. If planning to stay a while you can select an extended stay hotel such as Staybridge Suites, Towneplace Suites or Residence Inn. If you are arriving in a recreational vehicle then the Garden of the Gods Campground is near the beautiful park, there is a KOA and Fountain Creek RV Park. There are a number of vacation rentals as well.
