In 1916, Spencer Penrose purchased the property and built The Broadmoor two years later. The inspiration came from Europe’s elegant hotels and so architects Warren and Wetmore who were also designers of the Ritz-Carlton turned this vision into reality.
Over the years, several other facilities were added to the hotel like the Broadmoor Riding Arena and the Broadmoor Ice Palace which became a famous Olympic training center. In 1961, the facility changed its name to Broadmoor World Arena and has held several famous national and international sports festivals and championships.
