Nice hotel with a kitchenette, complimentary wine from 5 to 6. The staff, including the managerPam was very helpful with a reservation glitch when my husband and I double booked. Appreciated Jason and the complimentary friendly shuttle service. A nice little getaway and we will be back!!

I purchased a groupon for this hotel back in November planning on taking a romantic vacation when the ski season was almost over because I also work in a ski town. We arrived late at night and were exhausted, couldn't find the front desk, when we did the concierge told us parking was $20/night (not thrilled but figured we'd deal... More

I really liked this hotel. Super nice rooms. Granite countertops. Nice glassware/silverware. Comfortable beds. Very spacious rooms. Nice Balcony. Huge spaces for children to roam and play within the hotel. Right by the slopes. Will return.

Unmatched ski-in / out to CB. Our room was clean, modern, comfortable. The nightly wine receptions we're a nice way to mingle with travellers. Like the Sheraton at Steamboat, the Hotel's is similarly situated and its firepit is ground zero for apres-ski. Town shuttle eliminated need to valet car throughout the stay. Enjoyed meals at Bonez (pork belly atop mass... More

We were on a road trip from Las Vegas to Denver, originally intending to overnight in Gunnison. However, we changed our plans to include Crested Butte upon receiving an excellent deal from hotels.com for the Elevation Hotel. Obviously we were not skiing, although we are skiers and can appreciate what an excellent location this hotel enjoys. The regular free shuttle... More

Hotel room and facilities were great. The kitchenette allowed us to ski in for lunch. The proximity to the lifts is really nice. However we were pretty disappointed that they couldn't provide late check out when the hotel was not even close to being full or busy.

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.

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
