I stay at hotels frequently as I travel frequently for work and business. This place is just bad on all levels. I'll start with my check in process. I paid for a mountain view delux room. I could have booked on Expedia cheaper and called the hotel to see if they would match the rate. They advised no and I... More

This is by far the best place to stay for ski in/ski out in Crested Butte Mtn. Don't let the word hotel fool you; there are rooms with 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and FULL kitchens. You walk out 25 ft to the snow and slide down to the Red Lady. Service was impeccable, everyone is friendly and kind. We used... More

The Elevation is NOT a cheap hotel. I was lucky to snag it on a Travelzoo deal which made it reasonable. That said, this is a very good property. It is a true ski-in, ski-out hotel perhaps 20 yards from the main lift. The positives are: excellent service, large, quiet, well-appointed rooms, comfy bedding, in-room Wi-Fi, indoor/outdoor pools & hot... More

We've stayed here several times, throughout all the seasons, and love it here. It is a great deal for being right on the mountain, and the rooms are so comfortable, it's hard to leave them even for what CB has to offer. The only reason I wouldn't rate it excellent is that they have some operational issues. They have so... More

We just returned from a family vacation at the Elevation Resort & Spa. We could not have asked for a better place or better weather. The Resort was a perfect location for those family members that enjoy skiing and also for those of us that don't ski. The rentals were close; they had a place to store the rentals when... More

We checked in Friday March 13th around 6pm. At that time we left the truck with the valet. The vehicle remained parked with the valet the entire stay. We checked out around 11:30am on sunday and drove home to the Denver area. While unloading i noticed a very sizable dent around 2' long and a scratch to go with it.... More

Our third stay at the Elevation this year (2015). However; not three years in a sequence. We've stayed the prior three years in a slope side condo. This year it was just the three of us (immediate family), so we opted to stay at the Elevation in a slope side suite. The room was great, the daily maid service was... More

A weekend ski trip to Crested Butte was the draw and the location of the resort was perfect. We were able to park the car and check in early then head right to the slopes. The room was really nice and spacious. It was clean and quiet even though we were close to the elevator. The king size bed was... More

Great gym. Fun play areas for kids. Easy ski storage. Cons: The parking lot is a horrible feat of engineering making parking very difficult, as well as trying to get... More

Great week at Crested Butte. The hotel did a nice job preparing for the Spring Break crowd. Great location for the family. If the kids get tired they can easily go back to the room and rest. The ability to ski in and ski out makes this location ideal. Everything you need is within walking distance or hop on the... More
