Capitol Peak is in a new development that still is under construction. The units are new and in top condition. I have never stayed in a condo with a kitchen as well equipped with high end appliances, pots and pans, wine glasses. I am a gourmet cook and was impressed to even find things like a wisk. Cuisinart cookwear, GE profile appliances. If you want to cook while you are here, this is a great place to stay.
The beds are very comfortable. It even has a washer and dryer.
There is free Intenet access. No workspace, but there is ample room on the dining table which is where the Internet connection is located.
There is not a lot of drawer space in the bedroom, although the closets were ample. The bedroom is quite small.
There is a small exercise room and a couple of hot tubs but no pool. However, they provide free access to the Snowmass Club and Lodge with a fabulous workout facility and several swimming pools.
I did their virtual tour before booking. YOu need to be aware that there are various room configurations. I was expecting a separate shower and tub but in our unit they were combined. We also thought the bathroom was adjacent to the bedroom but it was located near the kitchen. Neither were problems for us but if you want a separate shower, you should request it.
Overall the furniture is adequate. The dining table was a bit awkward--very heavy chairs that are too low for the table. But this is getting pickey. There are two flat screen TVs, but the one in the bedroom is not on cable so you can't get all of the channels on it. There is an I-pod docking station and CD player but no DVD player. Overall however, the condo is very comfortable and very well equipped.
We were concerned about construction noise, but found the units to be very quiet. We faced the road and it was no problem at all.
I decided to book direct through the hotel and if I did it again I would book through the Aspen/Snowmass resort association. I paid $100 more for various "amenities." We were supposed to have flowers and a welcome basket on arrival. I had to ask for both. That being said, the staff were very accommodating and quick to respond to all our needs.
The biggest drawback was the parking garage. It's a multi-story garage and you have to go up a steep and winding driveway to get to the parking spaces which are quite narrow. There were very few people staying while we were here so it wasn't a problem. However, when it is built out and the garage is full, it might be more difficult.
The units are located close to the supermarket and about 1/2 mile from the top of the village. You can walk to both although the walk to the village is uphill.
We paid $209 (plus tax) per night during the summer. We imagine their rates will go up later. We considered it very good value for the quality of the units.
We would definitely recommend this condo.
