My family stayed at the Elevation Hotel & Spa over spring break (3/24/2012) with our children 14, and twin boys nine years old. We decided to get the king with adjoining double queen beds. Perfect! The manager upgraded us to a mountain view as I booked a court yard view which we felt was a pleasant surprise. We did our... More

We loved the hotel. Clean, spacious and the perfect ski in/out location. The decor was sophisticated modern. The ski valet was awesome, no lugging around equipment. Great outdoor fires after skiing, prime location for watching the slopes. We didn't use many of the other hotel amenities as we were mainly there to ski and basically enjoyed relaxing in the hotel/room.... More

The Elevation hotel is clean, comfortable and a great place to stay on the mountain. We've visited Crested Butte a number of times, but this is our first stay at the Elelvation, and it won't be our last. The rooms are well appointed, spacious, and come with a safe and robes, and the beds are extremely comfortable. Also, the location... More

The staff may be skilled in what they do but my experience is you don't get your money's worth. I went for the "ultimate facial" but it was really a little bit of this and that, and they missed one item supposedly included in the package. You end up with a list of products that they "recommend" you to purchase.... More

I visited with my husband for a week of skiing. I picked this property based on reviews and the fact that it is ski in, ski out. We reserved a King Slope Side View room. The room is awesome. Large, modern, clean and has a wonderful view. Room 645 looks down over the apres ski area and the lifts. King... More

I highly recommend this hotel/ resort. You are steps to the lift and at the end of the day ski to the door and hand over your ski's to be put away for the next day. The hotel staff is attentive. My room was cleaned everyday. There is a mini kitchen to make breakfast and lunch . There is a... More

Recently stayed at the Elevation for a ski conference. It is Mt Crested Butte's only real ski in ski out where in you can ski right up to the door, pop off your skis and check them at the ski valet. The room was very nice (stayed in a Apex King) with a nice little kitchen area with a regular... More

My husband got a bed bug bite. Unfortunately we didn't realize what it was until we left the hotel, checked in to another hotel and found a bug crawling on the comforter. Although the rooms were nice we noticed the furniture was dirty (ie, dust and dirt). The more frustrating part about the place though was that the showers were... More

At Elevation Hotel & Spa, we pride ourselves on providing outstanding accommodations and excellent customer service. We have many positive guest comments on Trip Advisor. We appear to have missed the mark on our normal very high standards of service and customer satisfaction with this particular guest. This report is certainly not the norm and the first time we have... More

Just stayed there for the second year in a row. Great venue and service. Ski valet was again exceptional. Location cannot be beat - it's in the middle of everything. There are rooms with a small frig/freezer and small stove - as opposed to just a resort kitchen.

We arrived for a snowboarding vacation, the snow could of been better but Elevation Hotel and Spa made up for it. The indoor pool and hot tub were nice. We had a couples massage that was great. We dined in 9380 and the food was good. Overall, great experience!
