Stayed just one night at this property in Breckenridge for some Spring Break skiing. As only half our group was skiing, plan was to use town home and resort amenities for non-skiers. That plan didn't work as well as hoped, with only a 30-minute check-out time extension and the refusal of the front desk to secure a shuttle ride to related property at the base of Peak 8. The literature in the room and website encourage guests to enjoy the amenities at One Ski Hill Place, but then they won't take you there? That was a major let-down. Yes, they offered to shuttle us over to the gondola, but people afraid of heights do not want to ride the gondola.
Upon check-in, "upgraded" to a 3-bedroom condo instead of 2-room town home. Condos don't have their own washer/dryer, and the townhomes have private garage, but otherwise similar amenities. Condo was fairly clean and comfortable. If we had turned on the ceiling fan, would have been showered in dust. You might want the ceiling fan on to help with the overheating. You have no control over the room temp other than opening windows.
View of the mountains from balcony was spectacular. The fake plants/flowers in the condo mostly look tired and dated, but other decor fine. Free Wi-Fi worked fine for family with multiple laptops, smartphones, iPads all going at once. Allotted a ski locker in the lobby as they request no skis/bicycles to be stored in rooms. Nice rack of hooks by condo entrance for hanging coats, with bench for putting on footwear, very good idea to keep those muddy shoes corralled by the door.
Although you have to cross a fairly busy street (or hop on the ski-in trail, which has stairs to an under-street tunnel), it is an easy walk to the downtown area with lots of shopping and dining options. Dinner at Blue River Bistro was delicious, even tho sat in noisy bar area. Breckenridge is a charming town to visit, whether you ski or not.
