I stayed here for a week over New Years. It is a nice hotel with lovely rooms, a fun lobby for after-skiing relaxation & a great pool/jacuzzi & fun, convenient gondola. But there a few too many negatives, in my opinion, to merit the high price vs. some of the other options in the area.
First, there is a big variability in the room views. Our first room overlooked the lobby on the 1st floor and so we had no privacy and had to keep the curtains closed...and it was very noisy. We eventually got switched to the same type of room but with a much nicer, mountain view up higher. This view, with the nice room, I have to say was lovely. So you have to request up-front and hope you get a good room.
Second, my 4 year old daughter was in ski school and it is honestly a hassle to get a little one to the village/ski school area from this hotel. First you take the gondola, then wait 5-15 minutes in the cold for a bus, and then try to find some standing-room only on a crowded bus and take a 10 minute ride into town, and then more walking with all your gear to the ski school. Then you have to do on the way back....which is not easy with a tired, cold little 4 year old! The Park Hyatt is right next to the ski school in actual Beaver Creek village and would be a MUCH better location.
Lastly, the service was not that great. I felt the front desk was a bit rude when we asked to switch rooms, almost every time we waited at least 20 minutes for our car, and housekeeping took a few calls to arrive some days. But to be fair it was a busy New Years week...and the people in the ski valet, starbucks etc. were amazing and very friendly/helpful.
all in all...fine if you get a good rate and don't have to take kids to ski school. But not worth the expensive $$ if you have options to stay closer to town.
