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

We spent a week at the Elevation and were generally pleased with the experience. The positives...staff were friendly and helpful, access to the ski slopes is excellent and view from room was good. The negatives..the restaurant was grim and food options very limited. Food was bland, poorly prepared and the wait staff indifferent. The decor in the rooms is an... More

From the moment you get on the first elevator it is clear that housekeeping is not a priority here. The hallways, elevators, everything are run-down and grimy. And the fitness center: FILTHY. It appears that the equipment is never cleaned---hair, dust, grime on every surface. Service is fair, depending on which employee.
