This was our first stay at the Elevation Hotel. We were there for four nights in August 2014 and really loved it. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchenette was great. We bought supplies for three breakfasts and there were adequate cooking utensils and pans so we could cook dinner one night. We... More

I have to say, we booked this hotel based on the Trip Advisor reviews and everyone is pretty right on. Overall the stay was great. We got a regular room with a king bed, not slope side and the room was big with a balcony and nice bathroom and kitchenette. They do provide you with a microwave, mini fridge, and... More

Once you get past the Ray Charles-designed garage - I know architects try to max out living space, but this garage layout and approach is an abomination - you enter a very large, well-run operation. The employees behind the counter could not be better. The hotel and it's rooms are comfortable, the breakfasts are large and an order can be/should... More

I don't know if it was just my good mood or if the hotel was really that great. The staff at the front desk was helpful and friendly with getting me settled in. I walked into the room and it looked great! There were two bottles of complimentary water and Andes chocolate mints on the counter. It really is the... More

We arrived later than we expected on a Saturday night. Travelling with my daughter and grandbaby, we were tired, hungry and ready to relax. We arrived and unloaded with the help of a very (very) nice valet. My daughter took the car to the FREE parking 1 block away. There were 2 clerks at the front desk and apparently both... More

OK, they will hate me. The place is nice, has comp bathrobes (always a sign of a bit of class, albeit these are the simple terry-cloth type), and of course they try to cater to the fatter cats in Crested Butte--but they are not the Westin in Snowmass, which I just reviewed. The room is very nice--don't get me wrong.... More

Soooo...this is a big review, as my family of 6 NEVER stay anywhere for an extended period of time due to "cabin fever" that sets in, however, we were so pleased with our stay at Elevation Hotel, that the week seemed to fly by!

OK hotel. Huge building that looks almost like a former East German military facility. Nothing good or charming about it. Rooms are spacious, but noise travels. Especially noise from the slamming of all the doors down the hallway. Impossible to sleep. The night we were there the fire alarm went off at 3:35 AM - and we still don't know... More

We checked in and was offered a slopeside upgrade at $25/day and took it. Then were informed they charge $20/day resort fee and on top of that a $15 self park fee. So study the rates carefully in town to ensure you are comparing apples to apples. First the room, it seemed newly updated and looked great. It had nice... More
