“Great property on a Slipery Slop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Great property on a Slipery Slop


This was my third stay at this property.
The location and the views are breathtaking. The décor and rooms are beautiful, well appointed.
This property presents some issues that need to be addressed.
Spg recognition is minimal. There is no place to have a good meal right now. The Market and the Lift have few choices and dull food.
I had breakfast included with my status. For continental breakfast we were offered about 2 choices: some old croissant and a huge fatty, unhealthy high carb muffin that looked like Shreck's head. I ended up ordering from the regular menu and return the voucher to the front desk. They promised that I will be given the 500 points platinum amenity, which has not happened yet.

This is one of the resorts where the $20 resort fee does not cover anything. It is just a way to improve bottom line and rip customers off, really.
I love the area and the location, the walk along the river, the facilities. My favorite thing is the 3 hot spas on the river's shore with an amazing view of the Beavercreek.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

My girl and I decided to take a vacation weekend and come up from Denver. While we would say that our trip was simply too short, we still had a wonderful time. The Heavenly Bed is frankly impossible to get out of because it's so comfortable. Leisure time by the pool, followed by a walk by the creek was just what we needed to relax.

Paying for valet service (aka regular, overnight parking) was surprising as our reservation didnt make any mention of the required $25 per night. However, this was merely a disappointment at feeling nickle-and-dimed, but by no means unexpected for a hotel of this caliber.

We will definitely be returning for longer next time!

We stayed at this property in June for some much needed r and r. Had I known how nice it was and the terrific spa, gym and classes, we would have stayed longer.
We had a one room suite which faced the east. The suite was nice and the nicely appointed and stocked kitchen was seldom used. We loved being able to walk the path by the river, sit by the pool or workout in the terriffic fitness center. I took a Pilates class with Elizabeth and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed, so we couldn't try it.
We loved the washer and dryer in the room so we could come home with clean clothes.
We'd go again.

Room Tip: We were in the East tower and faces east. The view wasn't the best.

Green Features: Had recycling bins in the kitchen. The property also has a recycling program.

Here for Edward Jones Investments meetings. First night was rough as the four of us squeezed into standard mountain view room. The room was nicely appointed but just too small for the four of us. The staff and manager bent over backwards to find us a better room on a sold out weekend. We ended up in luxury 2 bedroom corner suite which is exceptional. A great place to spend anniversary and for meetings. Staff sent up numerous treats in honor of our anniversary.

Room Tip: If more than 2 are sharing room, get a suite.

Green Features: Very Eco friendly with visible messaging throughout.

Stayed here for 5 nights! On a spa trip with 12 women . Great location on the river. Jacuzzi location is super! We have a 2 bedroom suite with huge patio. Spa treatments r fantastic. Mathew and Amanda are the favorites of the group for massges. Hiked to hanging lake. Tough hike but worth it. Concierge can give u directions. Maya needs to work on their service. Food is very good.

Early June tends to be off-season in the mountains but what I found was gorgeous scenery, lower rates and specials, and fewer crowds. We stayed at the Westin Riverfront for a relaxing girls weekend and it was wonderful. Three of us stayed in a studio with a king bed and pull out sofa. The room was spacious and luxurious. The kitchenette was a welcome bonus and came in useful. The hotel has a contemporary nature decor that I found very tasteful. The pool area has a gorgeous view of the mountains and the Eagle River. We enjoyed spending time in the oversized jacuzzis overlooking the river. We took advantage of discounted spa services ($50 off massage!) at their luxurious spa. The staff was wonderful, especially the valet/bell hop guys who we got to know very well (there is only valet parking but unlimited in/out at any time). Although the hotel is not in the village, it is a quick drive into Beaver Creek, Vail, Avon, Edwards. I could spend a week in this hotel be perfectly happy never leaving the property. We decided to make this an annual trip!!

Green Features: We opted out of housekeeping for the weekend as part of Westin's optional environmental program. For participating we got a discount on breakfast and I was just fine with making my own bed. I would do it again.

Stayed here for 5 nights June, 2013. Very nice rooms and service. That said the first night the Room was very warm and a/c wouldn't stay on. When I mentioned it at the front desk the next morning, it turned out the master switch had not been turned on at checking and the room was shown as vacant.
