“Second Visit Exceeded the First!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Westin Riverfront Resort for a week this September. We had a shorter visit a couple of years ago, and this one exceed our already high expectations. Because we were there for a longer period of time, we got to speak to the staff more often, which turned out to be a great thing. Cesar, who works at Cima, the hotel restaurant, gave us a great hiking tip to go to Piney Lake. I highly recommend this relatively easy hike.

The food at Cima was very good. Out of six nights, we ate there three times. Our favorite dish was probably the grilled Caesar salad. However, all the entrees were excellent as well.

I visited the spa one time. During this time of year, they hotel offered a couple of specials: $99 facials or one hour massage, or 20% off other services. My therapist did a great job with my deep tissue massage.

The room was exactly what we expected. We had enjoyed the King Studio previously, so we reserved the same. The King Studio has a very well stocked kitchenette: cutting board, knives, tea kettle, dishes, all kinds of glasses, silverware, paper towels, liquid detergent. It was so convenient to be able to have breakfast in the room. The Heavenly Bed was, of course, heavenly.

One thing that was new to us was renting bikes at the attached outfitter store. We rode to Edwards, which is a very easy ride (not too much in the way of little hills).

Another great experience was using Gore Creek Fly-fishing for a half day of fishing. I cannot say enough nice things about them.

One piece of practical advice: there is a guest laundry! Yes, it is small, with only two washers and two dryers, but it is great to be able to wash some of the outdoor gear we brought. It is a dollar for the washer and for the dryer. Also, you can buy detergent and Downy from a machine. The laundry room is on the 8th floor, just off the East elevators. Not every employee knew where this was, so I don't know if they ever really promote this fabulous amenity.

Overall, we had a great trip, and intend to return as soon as possible. September is a lovely time to visit with the Aspens changing color and the reduced room rates (we paid $153 for our King Studio).

My husband and I spent two nights at the Westin Resort in Beaver Creek. Loved the friendly valet staff. We checked in on a Tuesday at 2:00 and were told our room was not ready. They gave us another room on the city side over the check in area, not sure if we should have waited for our original room as maybe it would have been better. Rooms are small with nice decor but nice big bathrooms. I am not sure we were in a room with a heavenly bed as it was not very comfortable. The Athletic Club is excellent. The pilates class with Elizabeth was excellent. The three infinity hot tubs were awesome. The hotel is located on the Eagle river and they have a walking/running/bike path next to the river. The CIMA restaurant was very good. Overall a very nice stay.

From the moment we pulled up to the door the staff made us very welcome. The concierge called in a reservation to a nearby restaurant and alerted the staff (unbeknownst to us) that it was our anniversary and they planned a little surprise for us. All the little details from the efficient valet parking, the quiet room with the heavenly bed, the outdoor hot tubs and the beautiful path by the creek made this a very restful and romantic get away.

I recently spent two nights with the Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa in Beaver Creek. The studio suite was immaculate, spacious and the views outstanding! The extensive gym with a multitude of classes offered daily was just one of several pleasant surprises. I stayed right after Labor Day when the crowds were gone. The pool area with several infiniti hottubs had a spectacular vista of Beaver Creek and access to biking and walking trails. Close to shopping and dining, the location offers proximity to the mountain but easy on off to explore local towns.
The service and variety of dining in the hotel will meet any need. A quick grab and go breakfast or a full service breakfast are side by side.
The gondola is just steps away to the ski lifts and there are bikes to rent for a 6 mile trail to
Edwards, a little town with charming eateries and shops. So many things to do within a 10 miles radius.

Room Tip: Take a mountain side although I was on a valley view and the mornings were spectacular!

Thank you to all the staff, especially the front desk. We were welcomed with open arms, but I think they really wanted to play with our 5 month old Berneses Mtn Dog puppy. The staff was unbelievably friendly and showered our puppy with love and treats...Clyde did not want to leave.

The room was so comfortable, it was hard to get out of bed in the morning, but the beautiful CO weather was calling us early every morning.

Thanks again and we will definitely see you soon

From the check in, our room, and every amazing detail along the way- this hotel was a wonderful experience for my wife and I. We really enjoyed the early morning walks along the river, use of the state of the art fitness facilities, and the cocktails in the lobby with our friends. I would highly recommend!
