Read this one I know what I am talking about :-) I stayed a week here around 4th of July. I loved this hotel. Rarely do you see hotels with this much comfortable common space. There are groupings of chairs, fireplaces, and separate lobby rooms, including a library and billiard room. A person can just lounge in many areas including outside. It is a perfect location for direct access to both Beaver Creek village and the wilderness ski area. Huge lobby windows with great views of the mountains. Oh, and one of the few places to stay in Beaver Creek area with A/C for the summer!
The room was very nice, first class. And the bed was one of the best I have ever tried. The place has a distinct mountain lodge feel (and smell) that is charming and comfortable. The spa is excellent, although I have seen better (check out Ritz in Bachelor Gulch).
My only complaint was the shortage of staff in the restaurant. They explained that it is hard to get staffing right during the summer, especially for just a few days around July 4th when it seems every person in Denver comes up. But I see another frequent reviewer has had this same experience. To their credit, when I pointed out a problem, management handled it promptly and courteously. Impressive
I have completed extended stays in Beaver Creek several summers, and there are many nice places to stay. But this is one of the best if you are looking for a comfortable high end hotel experience. Overall this picky traveler says - great hotel, and I will be back! Thanks Hyatt
