“Looking forward for a 2-beds handicap room.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

There is nothing new to say about this hotel. Great location, great rooms/studios, great views, great service and so on… the only thing I was disappointed with is: I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS HOTEL HAS NO 2-BEDS HANDICAP ROOMS. I would certainly go back to this hotel and would be such a great deal to find a 2-beds handicap room… would make my stay even better!

Room Tip: You don't mind to walk? park somewhere else.

Thank you for all the “GREAT” comments. You are correct, our one bedroom villas only have one standard king size bed and our studio villa currently has one standard queen size bed. That said both types of villas do have a pull out sofa bed (honestly not the most comfortable of beds), plus we can add one of our Westin Heavenly Rollaway Beds (twin size and very comfortable) to any villa for a nominal fee. There are currently plans to change the studio villas queen size bed to a king size next year. Unfortunately, there are no current plans to add a second bed to any of our villas.

We are owners of 2 Starwood properties and I must say that this is the most beautiful resort in the continental US. Our view from our patio is simply gorgeous. The staff has been exceptionally friendly when it came to giving ideas on places or things to do. The rooms are definitely up to Starwood standard of excellence. Any Starwood owners need to add this to their list of places to definitely try.

Thank you for being a Starwood Owner. The Westin Riverfront Mountain Villas is a beautiful resort with stunning views, and the mountains are a great place to be in the summer. Unlike other places, summer is not too hot, cool at night and some of the world’s best vistas. Sitting on the balcony and taking in the serenity of the river flowing past, and the colorful mountainside is an experience worth taking time out to enjoy. Thank you again, we hope to see you again soon!

We are owners in the Villas and have been coming here for several years for Memorial week. In the past the conflict between the Westin side and the Hotel side of the resort made it difficult but they have really fixed that problem! The staff is some of the friendliest we have seen anywhere and the property is beautiful. Not real thrilled with the wrist band process at the pool (suggestion - do something nice in the check in package for the pool/spa usage so it feels special). Overall great resort!

Of course we are always striving for improvement and so it is really encouraging to know we have made progress on the conflict you noted in the past. Thank you for describing the property as beautiful, and complementing our friendly staff. For us, hearing comments like yours is motivating, it never gets old. We appreciate the feedback on the wrist band. I’m sure you know, the system was implemented to prevent outsiders, persons who are not guests staying in the Resort from using our facilities, and crowding our pool. Wrist bands may not be the long term permanent solution, rest assured we will change that policy as soon as we identify a better method.

Stayed a week in a one bedroom villa facing the river. As per Westin standards, the rooms are top notch and have all the high end amenities one would expect. My wife loved the large shower with oversized shower head. We were here the middle of May, which is between seasons. Even though we were here a week, the best room we could get was on the ground floor - their excuse were the other rooms on the higher levels were all being deep-cleaned. Really? So that was a disappointment. We also had friends joining us later in the week, so we requested a room with an available attached studio. Of course, when the time came to reserve our attached studio for our friends, the unit was now unavailable, and they had to stay down the hall. So, we loved the property, but thought the front desk was less than par for this affluent a property. Not to mention the pool and spa were closed for renovation. So, make sure you check prior to coming regarding room availability and spa availability.

Obviously we are very happy to have you describe the rooms the way you did, and the fact your wife loved the oversized shower head. It is unfortunate on the timing of your stay that we could not accommodate your desire for a higher floor. We do take every villa out of service once per year, half in the spring the other half in the fall and so the explanation they gave you was accurate. We call them maintenance weeks, but it is the time we deep clean as well as paint, shampoo, scrub grout, maintain appliances and everything else we cannot do in between check-out and check-in. It sounds like there was an opportunity to assign your friends next door and we failed to act on it. We will address that with our team, we appreciate the feedback on that and again very sorry. It is regrettable on our part because we want every stay to be a great stay no matter what time of the year. The pool is on schedule to be completed for Memorial Day Weekend and the Spa mid-June. We are also in the process of adding a Starbucks franchise and hopeful to have that done, up and running in July. We hope to see you return.

We traveled the first week in May, so before we even got there we knew the pool and hot tubs would be closed and under construction and that the gondola would not be running yet for summer time and yet we had an amazing time!

The hotel itself is gorgeous, modern appliances, large rooms, very clean, quick service. Our rooms view overlooked the mountains (which I definitely would recommend because it is breathtaking).

The Service was outstanding. Chris at the front desk was very knowledgeable and introduced us to a GREAT place Sage (where we rode in mavericks around the mountain), and Meredith answered any question we had to ensure we had an amazing stay. The on site dining place, Maya, was a great place to kick back by the fire and at happy hour -they make strong drinks and great food!

Next time we come back - I will be sure that the pool area is open - that would have made the trip.

Room Tip: get mountain view rooms- worth it!

We are very proud of our Westin and thrilled to have you describe it as gorgeous. Our associates try hard to deliver a great experience, and we spend a lot of time working with associates to perfect the delivery. It is great to hear your comments about Chris and Meredith; both are really awesome in their role. The pool and spa improvements are on track to be complete very soon, although we must note the Gondola is only operational for high ski season, mid-December through early April. We do hope you get a chance to come visit us again, of course when the pool is operational which as of now looks like it will be for Memorial Day weekend. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience for others.

We stayed at the Westin Riverfont at the end of the ski season (last week of March). I arrived at the hotel around 11pm and check in was simple and easy. Since I'm a Starwood Gold member, I asked about a possible late check-out. Technically, guests in the villas are not granted a late check out past 12noon, but the desk clerk told me to call the night before and they may be able to accommdodate me (I did call the night before our departure and since no one was checking into our villa the hotel did grant us a 2pm departure). I valet the vehicle thinking that was the only option for the hotel and villas, but I was wrong. Since I was staying in a villa, there is a separate self parking area in the underground garage for guest to park their vehicles. This made it a lot easier since I was in and out of the villa running to the market and picking people up from the airport.

I reserved a 1 bedroom villa that was very spacious. I particularly like the fact that the unit had a washer and dryer. Housekeeping came everyday to tidy up the unit. Our villa was in a separate building from the main hotel, so if we wanted to use the pool or the fitness center, you had to walk outside and cross a small walk way. By the way, the fitness center is very large by hotel standards.

Getting up to the mountain was easy. We took a short gondola ride to Beaver Creek landing and then took the Lower Beaver Creek express chairlift. If you need to go to ski school in Beaver Creek Village, you can take the gondola and catch the bus (it's basically the parking lot shuttle bus) to the village. If I recall, the bus made about 3 stops in various parking lots before it headed the BC Village. There is also another city bus that runs through Avon which you can catch near the hotel (about 1 short block), but it runs about every 20 minutes.

We had a wonderful stay at the Westin Beaver Creek and would definitely return in the near future.

The Riverfront Mountain Villas are spectacular. Every convenience is there for you. The villas are large, well furnished and equipped with the finest appliances. Ski rentals are available next door and the Gondola is just off the back of the building. Bus service to Vail is just steps away should you choose Vail over Beaver Creek for the day. Manager Michael Fields will do everything he can to make your stay enjoyable. The only problem is getting in. There are only 32 units and demand is high.

Room Tip: Try for a Mountainside room for maximum views

Wow, we couldn’t have paid someone to write a better review. Thank you so much. As you may / may not have been aware the Villa building is a Starwood Vacation Ownership Property and so a significant amount of the time was sold and the inventory is held for these owners to enjoy what they purchased. I would tell you to buy, but unfortunately we have no inventory to offer in this location. Of course, as you know we do some rentals as well. You can find more information about us online at starwoodvacationnetwork.com, or locally here at the Resort in our Westin Vacation Sales Gallery. Once again, thank you!!
