3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is pretty & has a gorgeous back drop of the mountain-apparently the only ski-in, ski-out venue in CB. That's why I say it has a good foundation - the problem is I believe the laid-back attitude of that area affects the service greatly. Also they have to hire very young folks as servers & they just don't have... More

I purchased a groupon for 1 night. We were supposed to have a courtyard room but ended up on Gothic street. The room was excellent, comfortable, clean, spacious. There was no air conditioning but the ceiling fan helped. We would have left the sliding door open but the street was noisy. The free town shuttle was an added surprise so... More

Hello Fortrumbo, I'm excited to hear that you took us up on our Groupon offer and that your stay was well worth the price. I know that a hotel is only as good as it's room so I'm happy you thought yours was excellent, despite the courtyard mix-up. Judging by your pictures it looks like you still had an amazing... More

Overall, the room was clean and nice. We had a great view overlooking the ski area and lifts. My one dislike was the noise we could hear from the other rooms. It wasn't the the other guest were loud, it was you could hear cabinet doors and drawers closing, etc. We prefer the Grand Lodge which is right next door.... More

I purchased a Groupon for a room at the Elevation Hotel & Spa for just an overnight with 2 friends from college and a baby. The hotel far exceeded my expectations! The first person to greet us was a valet who was extremely patient in explaining our options for parking ($15 for self-park, $20 for valet, directions to a nearby... More

This hotel made a perfect base for a summer trip to Mt. Crested Butte. Great location, friendly staff and great extras (like evening wine and cookies, free bike/ ski storage and morning guided hikes). The hotel in the center of the village area at the base of the slopes and a short walk to food, shopping, or the free bus... More

It is a nice hotel, but what they don't tell you is that they charge you an extra $20 for "resort fees" which covers the pool and fitness center. They also charge $15 to park, otherwise you have tompark two blocks away!

The Elevation almost ruined our visit to CB. The room felt awkward and we were never really comfortable. Did not like the parking charges so we left our vehicle in the public lot. My daughter checked her bed and found plenty of hair in it so we called the staff and had our bedding replaced. The sliding glass and screen... More
