We have stayed in Vail and in Beaver Creek and were not sure how we would like staying in Avon. We loved it and will go back next year. Easy drive to Vail to ski, shop, & dine; or you can take the gondola right from the hotel to ski Beaver Creek. Walk to wonderful restaurants in Avon, or for groceries. Five minute drive to Beaver Creek. Beautiful views, plus fabulous Westin service and amenities. Their spa, health club and yoga/Pilates facilities are excellent. Great year-round pool and hot tubs. Happy hour begins at 2:00 where you can sit in front of the fire, gaze at the mountains and listen to local musicians until 9:00. The rooms/suites, are just heavenly, of course!
