Wildwood was a such a pleasant surprise. Had read a few reviews about opening issues and was a bit wary but they have clearly worked most of them out. Traveled with our two kids ages 9 and 12 and they said it was "the most fun hotel we have ever been to." We had dinner in the lobby living room and played a marathon of board games including Pictionary and Monopoly which are all available in cubbies throughout the lobby.
After dinner the kids took off for "The Arcave" which has a bunch of retro arcade games including Pac Man, Pinball Machines, and Air hockey. We were told that they are expanding the game offerings to include ping-pong and more in an even larger space. The game-a-thon was followed by a trip out to hot tub before they collapsed in bed.
Nice to have a place for the kids to play right on property (close enough so we could check on them from time to time) while the grown ups got to hang in the New Belgium bar for a couple of drinks.
Our room was warm and cozy and plenty of hot water for showers in the morning. Housekeepers were on the job very early each morning.
We fueled up in the morning with a great pancake breakfast (after a morning session in the Arcave) and then walked right out to the slopes. The location absolutely can't be beat. The weather couldn't have been better and the snow conditions were soft and creamy.
The decor is really fun. Lots of cool contemporary art and unexpected quirky touches throughout the property.
Got an early morning cardio blast in their workout room which is small but has floor to ceiling windows that look out at the pool. Also took advantage of the spa for a fantastic massage after skiing--just next door at the Westin--a 'sister" property and had a really nice dinner at the Westin's restaurant, Snowmass Kitchen.
All of the staff we interacted with were very friendly and helpful,especially, Sly at the front desk.
Nice crowd staying at the property. Met some folks from Germany and Australia--who seemed equally pleased with the property.
Great spot for families with kids who want to be close to the slopes...We'll definitely be back.
