Lodging

CPTSC is proud to partner with the BRAND NEW Spring Hill Suites Hotel in downtown Colorado Springs  for the annual conference!

Use the link below to directly book your accommodations at this lovely new hotel where our Friday and Saturday sessions will happen.

Book your group rate for CPTSC Room Block ($169/night).

In the event you need some additional customer care (for example, booking nights outside of the preferred rate window), please call the hotel directly at 719.900.1801 (select option 4).

The hotel is centrally located to allow easy access to exceptional restaurants, cool bars, hip breweries, and all sorts of cultural experiences.

Airports

Colorado Springs has its own sizeable airport served by most major airlines, including Southwest, United, Delta, and Frontier.

The airport is about 15 minutes from the conference hotel. Taxis or ride sharing services like Uber or Lyft would be the best option to arrive at the conference hotel. The cost would be about $30 one way.

Depending upon the attendee’s place of origin, flying into Colorado Springs itself could be cheaper than flying into Denver. The size and proximity of the COS airport certainly makes it desirable for attendees to arrange travel here, if possible. It would eliminate the need for ground transportation from Denver along the nasty I-25 corridor which can be quite troublesome.

Denver International Airport is a giant airport serving a giant city.  DIA has countless flights from everywhere in the U.S. and most international locations on about every airline possible. On a good day, when traffic isn’t snarled on I-25, DIA is a 90-minute drive from Colorado Springs. DIA is connected to Colorado Springs by multiple shuttles services like Groome Transportation and Denver Airport Transportation. No public transportation option exists between the two cities.

All About Colorado Springs

As a destination for about 25 million visitors a year (really!) Colorado Springs has a well-developed website with information on anything you could possibly want to know about the city including restaurants, cool bars and breweries, activities, or just about anything else you’d like to know. Please peruse the website here:

Transportation in Town

Rental cars are available at the Colorado Springs airport and at the Denver airport. As a town that grew up in miscellaneous fits and starts, COS is best travelled by car because different small towns have grown into one larger city. The surface streets connect these different areas of the city. COS is easy to navigate with several large roadways connecting all parts of the city in all directions. Traffic normally isn’t bad within town, and everything of interest is about 15 minutes away by car (as the joke goes). An alternative to a rental car within town is UBER/LYFT which operates extensively in COS.

Colorado Springs has a mediocre bus system that connects parts of the city, and while the buses are reliable, they are relatively infrequent for a city this size. Conference attendees looking to move around COS easily would be best served by rental cars or ride share services (or those annoying scooters that are everywhere now).
